In 200–250 words, analyze the basic issues of human biology as they relate to chronic conditions and describe the interaction between disability, disease, and behavior. Examine and discuss the impact of biological health or illness on social, psychological, and physical problems from the micro, mezzo, and macro perspectives. Choose a chronic condition from those provided in your text and consider how you might feel, think, and behave differently if the condition were affecting you versus if the condition were affecting a stranger. How might you think differently about this chronic condition if it were affecting someone close to you, your neighbor, or someone in your community?

Discuss psychosocial issues in Huntington’s disease. Some of the issues may be from the following list. Use at least 3 of the following or 3 of your own, and provide a resource for your findings. Respond to at least one other student in an evaluative or informative manner, not by stating “I agree.”

· Individuals and their families must cope with continuing losses, both physical and mental, as the condition progresses.

· The cognitive and behavioral changes for affected
 individuals may make it more difficult for them to cope.

· Individuals and family members may feel helpless and
 hopeless.

· Faulty judgment and impulsivity related to behavioral changes may result in unsafe situations for the individual.

· As the condition progresses, individuals become less able to care for themselves and thus become more dependent on others.

· As communication becomes more difficult, social interactions also become more difficult, resulting in increasing social isolation.

· Personality changes that may produce violent or hostile
 behaviors may stress support systems.

· Because Huntington’s disease has a genetic component, family members may seek out genetic counseling to determine if they carry the Huntington gene and may want to make decisions related to pregnancy.

Individuals and their families must cope with continuing losses, both physical and mental, as the condition progresses.

Faulty judgment and impulsivity related to behavioral changes may result in unsafe situations for the individual.

As the condition progresses, individuals become less able to care for themselves and thus become more dependent on others.

For more course tutorials visit

www.soc313.com

Assignment

1. Due by Day 7. Biopsychosocial paradigm, PIE Perspective, and Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Theory. Prior to completing this assignment, read Chapter 1 in the text, the articles listed, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. You have been asked to speak to an audience on the importance of the social factors affecting one’s experience of life. For this presentation, create an interesting and educational PowerPoint presentation, which contains a critical narrative that integrates aspects of the various theories with your individual sociocultural experiences.

To begin, create a PowerPoint presentation of four to five slides (excluding title and reference slides). Please see the following instructions for creating your content.

Choose one of the following theories as your main focus and the lens through which you will compare the other two: the biopsychosocial paradigm, person in environment (PIE) perspective, and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory.

Research each theory fully so that you can effectively synthesize information relevant to these topics.

Your presentation must include at least three scholarly sources that are cited in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. For help with finding scholarly resources for your presentation view the tutorial on searching for articles from the Ashford University Library.

Provide an initial slide with a summary description of the theory you chose as your main focus. How does this theory show that your environment impacts your life? Please do not include anything you are uncomfortable sharing with your instructor.

Provide secondary slides with summary descriptions of the other two theories. Be sure to compare each theory to the main theory used in your initial slide.

Incorporate appropriate images, tables, graphs, or other visuals as necessary. Please observe these general guidelines for your visual presentation. This link contains tips for creating effective slide presentations.

Slides should be sequenced and organized clearly.

Slides should show a clear and logical progression of ideas.

Slides should include bullet points or short sentences, not dense paragraphs.

Slides should include relevant visuals such as images, graphs, tables, data summaries, sound and/or animation that enhance understanding of concepts, ideas, and relationships.

Slides should include appropriately formatted APA citations for all information taken from your resources.

The presentation as a whole should include a consistent theme, format, and font to a ssist with readability.

Once you have completed your PowerPoint, create a screencast of your presentation using Screenr.com. Include a title for your presentation in the description box when you publish your screencast . Refer to the Screenr.com Quick-Start Guide for assistance.

Your presentation time has been limited by your host to between three and five minutes, so you will need to incorporate as many characteristics of an effective speaker as you can within this timeframe. These characteristics may include humor, storytelling, facts, pace, and volume. Since there is no video of the presenter (just the presentation itself), you will not have the benefit of body language, so be sure to create a convincing screencast.

Copy and paste the URL link to your screencast into the title page of your PowerPoint presentation and submit your presentation for grading. All sources used within the presentation must be cited properly within the slides and included on the required reference slide, which will be the last slide of the PowerPoint presentatio n. Due to the time limit of your presentation, you are not required to speak or read through the title or reference slides.

However, you must include your reference slide when you submit your PowerPoint presentation.

Creating the Presentation

The PowerPoint presentation:

Must be four to five slides (excluding title and reference slides).

Must include a title slide with the following:

o Title of the presentation

o Student’s name o Course name and number

o Instructor’s name

o Date submitted

o URL for your Screenr.com screencast presentation

Must begin with a content slide that provides a summary of the main theory as it relates to an experience of how environment impacts life. A succinct thesis statement must be present, either in the text on the slide or clearly stated in the speaker’s voice over for the screencast.

Must include slide(s) of the two perspectives of how environment impacts human beings.

Must include example(s) of how the social/environmental perspective impacts one’s life, using each of these three perspectives. Use specific life experiences to demonstrate these impacts (e.g., a child with autism and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory). Who is affected by this disorder and how? Consider micro, mezzo, and macro levels.

Must include images and text that tastefully convey the message presented on each slide.

Must utilize Screenr.com to create a screencast video presentation that presents each slide in more detail.

Must use at least three scholarly resources.

Must conform to the screencast time limit of between three and five minutes.

Must have appropriate in-text citations for all sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Must include a separate reference slide that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Endocrine System Disorders (Diabetes). Prior to engaging in this discussion, read Chapter 5 in your text, watch the Peter Attia: Is the obesity crisis hiding a bigger problem? video, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.

For this discussion, please reference the information in the “Introduction to the Miller Family” document. Lila Miller Goldberg is a 45-year-old diabetic. She had difficulty losing weight since her pregnancy years ago and has started experiencing symptoms related to her condition. She has insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), and has been symptomatic for more than 10 years. She has been resistant about changing her diet and has been inconsistent with treatment, despite her health. She always hated her mother Ella’s fixation on nutrition while she was growing up, the different diets she tried, and the “weird meals” she prepared. She prefers quick and easy convenience foods, fast food, and what tastes good. After all, she is a busy working mom! She has never liked to exercise and, with the pain that has developed in her feet, it is physically too difficult.

Analyze and discuss the relationship between Lila’s environment growing up, her physiology, and her attitudes and behaviors. Use the following questions to guide your explanation, and be certain to apply basic medical terminology as appropriate.

How might Lila’s condition affect her thinking, her relationships, and social situations? In what ways might these factors worsen her condition? How has Lila’s aversion to her mother’s dietary fanaticism while she was growing up affected her choices and, as a result, her health?

How might Lila’s condition of being overweight impact her relationships?

How might others in Lila’s family and community view her, and how might this affect how she views herself?

What do you believe are Lila’s options at this time? Cite research that supports your reasoning.

If you were Lila’s close friend, how might you counsel her based upon your understanding of the biopsychosocial aspects related to her position? Provide evidence from the available resources.

How do we see disease in others based upon gender? For example, do we see some diseases as unfortunate and others as possibly avoidable by the individual? Do we judge ourselves or others differently when disease or chronic conditions are present? Be sure to provide evidence from your resources to back up your statements.

SOC 313 Week 4 DQ 1 Psychiatric Conditions (New)

For more course tutorials visit

www.soc313.com

Psychiatric Conditions: Bias and Shame. Prior to engaging in this discussion, read Chapters 7 and 8 in your text as well as the articles by Clark, et al. (2013) and Cummins (2013). It is highly recommended that you also watch one or two of the videos on mental illness from the TED playlist, All kinds of minds (9 talks), as these provide valuable insights into a variety of disorders and the issues associated with them.

For this discussion, refer to the information in the “Introduction to the Miller Family document.” Lucy Miller is a 20-year-old college student who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Sarah Miller, her mother, recalls that as a teen, Lucy would get very talkative at night and couldn’t go to sleep. Sarah also recalled that Lucy was kicked off the cheerleading squad when her GPA fell below 3.0, and that during this time, Lucy’s friends were being mean to her. When this occurred, Lucy was “really down” for a couple of months. She didn’t want to talk to a counselor and she told her mother Sarah that she would be fine. Lucy blamed the entire situation on the issues with the girls in her class. However, coping with the mood swings became increasingly difficult for her. Lucy began experimenting casually with illegal drugs and found that they helped. Unfortunately, she kept getting them from friends at school and has now become addicted to them.

Examine the potential biological basis for Lucy’s psychological disorder. What, if anything, in her family history might point to this issue being hereditary? Be sure to apply basic medical terminology where appropriate. Consider the biases that are often held regarding mental illness. How much volition is involved in mental illness?

How much is related to environment and genetics? Do we think about mental illness differently when we know the person well versus if the person is a stranger (e.g., a homeless individual or a panhandler on the street)?

Analyze the impact that our stage of lifespan development has on how we think of our own mental health and the mental health of others. What impact does it have on our associated behaviors and the long-term outcomes associated with the disorder?

Refer to the information in the “Introduction to the Miller Family” document. For this discussion, choose one of the following family members currently experiencing issues with substance abuse and complete the discussion according to the instructions below.

Option 1: Lucy Miller — As we learned in Discussion 1 this week, this 20-year-old college student has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. As a coping mechanism for her wild mood changes, Lucy began experimenting with illegal drugs while still in high school and has now become addicted to them.

Option 2: Lucy’s younger brother, Josh, was recently discovered using marijuana. His response to his parents when confronted was, “It’s just an herb! Grandma Ella says as long as it is natural, it is good.” In truth, Grandma Ella hasn’t said anything about marijuana and does not know that Josh has been using it.

Option 3: Sam Miller, Lucy and Josh’s uncle, is an alcoholic. He is 50 years old, divorced, and estranged from both his ex-wife and their only son. He’s had no contact with either of them for many years. Sam has a long history of work and legal problems related to drinking. The family sees him as a “loser.” After choosing one of the people above, analyze the biology of substance abuse and describe its potential for dependence in certain families and the outcomes of various behaviors. Is it likely that Lucy, Josh, or Sam had a genetic predisposition to alcohol or substance addition? How does lifespan development make a difference in propensity to abuse substances? How does the stage of life at which the abuse begins impact t he user’s behaviors?

What emotions do we experience toward others with these conditions (empathy, judgment, fear, guilt)? Critique the contributions of community-based programs and how they influence our societal reactions to diseases, disabilities, and disorders. Examine and comment on the ways in which individuals, families, communities, and society as a whole will either benefit or suffer from current directions. Do the trends seem to indicate a path toward better health care for the individual, improved availability of needed care, changes or

options in types of care, and better resources in the community? List at least two potential positive directions and two potential negative directions or barriers still left unaddressed. Offer your own ideas for improving health care in the future. For example, do we need more technology, financing, community resources, options , or alternatives in handling our health care?
