Peer pressure can make you do bad things that can have terrible effects on your future and you will not be the same person you once were. Being yourself is an amazing accomplishment, many people fail to stay the same and become drug addicts or possibly suicidal and that is why peer pressure is so dangerous. If you change as a person it will not end well and your future could be ruined.
With supermax prison, many feel that they need in order to help with prison overcrowding and maintaining control over inmates that are a threat to the security as well as staff and other inmates. “The Federal Bureau of Prisons returned to the idea of controlling the most violent and disruptive inmates in indefinite solitary confinement when it opened Alcatraz in 1934”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). Over the years it was “judged as an expensive failure, it symbolized a penal philosophy that was outdated in an era that espoused rehabilitation, not punishment, as a goal of incarceration”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). Following these issues, it was later closed. Although some felt that these behaviors came from the long-term segregation some argued
This can be more difficult than it sounds, because it can be difficult to anticipate how participants will react to a study. It is usually easy to recognize when someone’s physical safety is in jeopardy, but it is complicated to recognize when a person’s emotional well-being is at risk. Researchers have an obligation to minimize any procedures that have the potential to cause harm to your participants. In general, avoid designs in which participants could be humiliated, embarrassed, scared, anxious, stressed, saddened, or discouraged. The participants’ physical and mental state should be the same as when they arrived for your experiment then by the end your experiment.
Specifically looking at Ash’s writing style, his choice of vocabulary was far fetched and hard to understand. It may be argued that at the time this article was published, the vocabulary was appropriate. However, when
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest The film, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, prompts very important aspect of the human condition. In the movie, the protagonist, Mac McMurphy, is deemed dangerous, so the mental institute tries to suppress him (Kesey). The film highlights various aspects of human conditions like psychology, sociology and philosophy. The mental institute tries to suppress the mentally challenged people rather than to try to communicate with them.
The prisoners seemed to be under a lot of pressure. This experiment was out of line. If I were a participant in this experiment as a guard, I would have lay low and be aware that this is only an experiment. I would not take charge; I would correct the prisoners if they were wrong, but I will always try to know my limit.
Situational effects and personality come into conflict when discussing behavior. Personality is someone’s “usual pattern of behavior, feelings, and thoughts” (Twenge, 2017, p.20). It remains constant throughout different situations, but some situations can be stressful enough to make a person act out of character. The transition between a person’s normal personality and behavior to a more evil, sinister behavior fascinates a man named Philip Zimbardo, who conducted the infamous Zimbardo Prison Experiment, or Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE). Zimbardo is an American psychologist at Stanford University and the mastermind behind the 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment (The Story).
Chemical Castration Mr. Roberts Uriah Rhodes Comp ll Prairie View A&M University Chemical Castration Outline I. Chemical castration has become an overwhelming debate on whether sex offenders should have this option as a punishment or treatment which also gives the sex offender the ability to be released from prison. II. While there are many pros to chemical castration, the side effects outnumber the real issue. Chemical castration goes against a person’s human rights, it also is an option the government hands out so that the offender can avoid jail, yet they are still suffering due to their health’s side effects. III.
They are dangerous people who fall into two classes: those who actually committed nonviolent offenses, and were convicted of those offenses or those who plea-bargained down from other offenses-likely violent offenses-and were convicted of a nonviolent offense. Like other addictive behaviors, drug addiction may have serious negative consequences, including academic failure, job loss, and a breakdown in personal relationships. Here's all you really need to know about so-called nonviolent offenders. In 2004 the Bureau of Justice Statistics studied nonviolent offenders exiting state prisons.
One of the most infamous experiments conducted in the history of psychology was the Stanford Prison Experiment. The main objective of this experiment was to see what effects would occur when a psychological experiment into human nature was performed. As I read through the material provided, I noticed that my thoughts on the matter were similar to many; that it was a complete failure as a scientific research project. However, his findings did provide us with something much more important that is still being talked about today; insight into human psychology and social behavior.
Ashley, I concur that the Stanford Prison Experiment did, in fact, violate research ethics. I believe that Zimbardo’s research experiment violated the ACJS code, specifically, the experiment did expose participants to more than a minimal risk of personal harm, and the research purposes were not fully disclosed to the participants. Zimbardo himself also admitted that his research experiment violated these standards. I further believe that Zimbardo made several errors in his research including the fact that he gave himself a position in the experiment as “prison warden”. Clearly Zimbardo should have had another person play this role so he could remain independent, an error Zimbardo also admits to having done.
--Asch's experiment on conformity observes the influence a group can have on an individual and how an individual might deviate from the group's perceptions. The way the study was conducted allowed the correlation of the results to better reflect the fact that the correlation does, in this instance, imply causation, but the set up also limits the applicability of this information to larger populations. The experiment could also take some ethical criticism in its failure to provide complete information about the study to its participants. Experiment Summary --Asch created a test that involved lines of different sizes.
In my opinion, a debate over the ethicalness of this experiment is unnecessary. The Stanford Prison Experiment was undoubtedly unethical, due to the mortification and the psychological distress subjected on the participants. Also, there’s no debate over the major flaws within the experiment, the main flaw being Philip Zimbardo. Zimbardo was a participant in this own experiment, taking the role of the warden of the “prison”, therefore couldn’t be an impartial leader. Due to his active participation in the experiment, Zimbardo started to lose his perception of reality and was overtook by a facade, like the other participants, and couldn’t recognize the unethical ways of the experiment.
