1. According to the article, minority clients can often be misdiagnosed because the clinician lacks an understanding of the client 's culture. The article points out that many of our counseling practices are "Eurocentric" and therefore problematic for minority clients. What does this mean and how might it effect Neesha during her own counseling experience?
Nature vs. Nurture: A Sociological Approach We belong to an extremely complex world in which humans are forced to adapt to their ever-changing surroundings. Whether it be to integrate technology into education, stand up and express one’s true sexuality, care for those suffering in third world countries, or learn to adapt to a college environment, what is it that defines who we are as human beings and the qualities we possess to help make our decisions and adapt? A common sociological approach has been trying to explain this concept for decades, that concept being nature vs. nurture. Nature refers to all of the genes and hereditary factors that influence who we are.
Nature vs. Nurture There have been many nature vs nurture debates throughout years and years. Which one is better, which one is more effective, and which one is most important in social behaviors? Well, my answer is both. I believe human behavior is developed through experiences and biological factors. Every person we meet affects our life in some way and the way our body develops shapes us can determine our future.
In the article entitled “Nature and Nurture debate” the author explains how “aggressive behavior causing abuse can be justified by the "behavioral genes" once the researchers have proven their existence”
Introduction: In the attempt to explain human behaviour, one of the oldest debates in psychology is the issue of nature versus nurture. This debate revolves around the extent to which genetic inheritance and external environmental factors affect human behaviour. At one end there are the nativists which believe that human differences are based of genetic codes. On the other hand, there are the empiricists who believe the human mind at birth is a blank slate and is eventually “filled” by experience.
Majority of parents just want the best outcome for their child and for them to develop to the best of their ability. Even though this is the case, some parents are not always exactly sure how to encourage this and for this reason might seek advice from practitioners within the setting. The better the partnership between a staff member and a parent the more comfortable they will feel in confiding in the practitioner.

Open Adoptions Requiring open adoption records benefits and positively impacts the birth parents, adoptive parents, and the children. Open adoption records will help the children by giving them a choice on whether to know their parents, as opposed to closed adoptions when the children could never know who or what their parents are like. Considering the birth parents have the right to tell their children or child why they had to give up a part of them, as for closed adoptions the birth parents will not be able to tell their children or child why they had to give them up. In addition, the health records would be a big factor to open adoptions with the result that the birth family could have different diseases, with references to closed adoptions they would not know about any diseases in the family.
Before documenting the encounter at Harry’s house Dot should have reflected on how she felt and then documented. Once Dot’s head was clear and free from any negativity she could have made a more professional note that stated her concern for Harry’s well-being and the next steps that she would take to assist Harry and his family with getting the help they needed.

Singer’s moderate principle is, “if it is in our power to prevent something bad from happening, without thereby sacrificing anything morally significant, we ought, morally, to do it” (866). I think by taking this principle into consideration every day, we will have a way stronger bond with our family and friends and other connections we have with other people. I do think that a lot of bias occurs in a household. For example, if someone in our family needs help with something, many of the other family members may not help because they think someone else in the family will assist them. This principle says you should not let this dictate your choices to help or not.
Even if our parents never came home, I think we would have been able to take advantage of the New Deal and the CCC. We were fortunate though for having three boys. If we would have all been girls, or even just having one or two sisters instead of brothers, we wouldn’t have been near as fortunate. The CCC camps weren’t for women. There may have been a few, but a majority of them were for men.
Thirdly is heredity and environment and how it play into intelligence and intellect. The nature vs nurture debate has been going on for over 140 years. Galton 's claim is disputed by environmentalist that insists that intelligence is the product of one 's environment. Environmental effects on intelligence consist in social variable, occupation, schooling, and family. Some believe that intelligence mainly comes from heredity.
On January 1, 1863, President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves, but even so, white people showed their power over the black people through sharecropping, which, in its own way, was another form of slavery. In the book Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, by Mildred D. Taylor, a nine-year-old black girl named Cassie Logan started to learn about the racial segregation during the 1930's, in Mississippi, the former slave state. Unlike most of the black families who sharecropped, the Logans had their own plot of land. Cassie, her brother Stacey, and their parents struggled because of the white families. For the Logans, the fight against the white people was probably enough, but T.J., Stacey’s friend, built on top of their
