Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) Research Paper

I have choosen Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) as the topic for my research paper.

 

The Research paper topic is to choose an anxiety disorder that is included in the DSM 5 (see last page of the syllabus). Research papers should include symptoms, basic concepts, genetic factors if applicable, course of the disorder, development of the disorder (such as cognitive, emotional, and behavioral components) and treatment (including pharmacological treatment).

 

 

 

Included in the paper should explain how your chosen anxiety disorder fits criteria for the anxiety disorder category and how it differs from other disorders within the anxiety classification (hint: use differential diagnosis information). Critical thinking should be evident within the content of paper (in other words, do not provide only straight factual information).   Critical thinking can be provided in applying cognitive theory or other therapeutic orientations to the treatment of the disorder.

 

 

 

Papers should be between 1,000 and 1,500 words, and should include at least six references and follow APA formatting examples.  Please note that any papers submitted late or that do not meet the wording criteria within 10%  (i.e., 900 to 1,650) will result in the deduction of an entire letter grade.  Please see the external link section for resources on APA formatting and contact your instructor or the library if you need help with formatting.

 

 

Scholarly sources must be used.  You may use popular sources to support public opinion and perhaps your critical thinking but it must be in addition to 6 scholarly sources.  If you have questions about scholarly text, please consult with your instructor or the library.

Assignment 2: LASA 1: Issues in Premarital Counseling

Steve has asked his girlfriend Nadia to marry him. They dated for a year after meeting in college at a fraternity party. Nadia has been sexually intimate with one other boyfriend, while Steve has had multiple partners.  Both are American, but Nadia’s grandparents are originally from Egypt. Despite different religious backgrounds (Steve is Methodist; Nadia was raised as a Muslim) and cultures, they have a lot in common and both sets of parents are very happy about their engagement. As part of their preparation, they have begun premarital counseling. As Steve and Nadia’s counselor, you know that a discussion of sexuality will be important to their marital success.

  • Describe the important aspects of sexuality (such as arousal and response, intimacy, contraception, etc.) that Nadia and Steve need to discuss. Remember to consider psychological/emotional as well as physical factors.
  • Include a discussion of at least 1 theoretical perspective that you have learned about in this course (e.g., Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love, Masters and Johnson’s work, etc.).
  • What risk factors pertaining to health can you infer might be present from the scenario? What can the couple do to minimize these risks?
  • How will you show cultural competence during your sessions (i.e., what cultural issues should you consider)?

By Wednesday, November 25, 2015, write an essay that is 3-5 pages in length. Also include a cover page and reference list. Remember to support your arguments with information drawn from the online content, the textbook, and at least one other credible, scholarly source to substantiate the points you are making. You can use relevant Web sites or journal articles as sources for your presentation, but make sure that they are from reputable web and print sources such as the AU online library, or information from .org, .net, or .edu sites as opposed to .com. Please avoid Wikipedia.

Apply APA standards to for writing and citations to your work.

The paper should be double-spaced 12-point typescript, Times Roman font, with 1-inch margins all around, and free from grammatical errors.

. Explain How Your Feelings, Beliefs, Attitudes, And Cultural Perspectives Might Influence How You Conceptualize This Case

Confidentiality is one of the ethical imperatives that is held in the highest regard by psychologists and clients. Safeguarding information disclosed to psychologists during the course of a professional relationship is something both clients and psychologists alike expect. It is a fundamental building block of the trust needed between psychologist and client. This expectation crosses many types of psychological interventions, including (but not limited to) interpersonal therapy; assessment of children, individuals, and couples; and research with human subjects. Confidentiality is expected in both public and private professional settings and interactions.

Despite such protections of confidential client information, there has been a persistent weakening of these same rights, especially subsequent to the September 11, 2001 destruction of the World Trade Center towers in New York City. The passion for privacy needed to be balanced by the right to protect one’s homeland and life (Safire, 2004, p. A27). Safire observed that patients could no longer expect that their mental health histories would remain confidential. This, however, was true prior to September 11, 2001. Clients have long been forced to waive their right to privacy when utilizing insurance to pay for their mental health treatment, which routinely requires transmission to the insurer of client diagnosis, prognosis, and aspects of history. There also are other exceptions that have existed before 2001 and include the following: the legal mandate to report both child and elder abuse/neglect; the legal requirement to warn specified others of a client’s intent to harm; the legal requirement to cooperate in providing records for which a psychologist has received a court order; the requirement to provide information to an employer who has hired a psychologist to assess a client for “fitness for duty” or some other reason (and similarly providing information to the courts from court mandated assessments).

For your first research paper, you explore the significance of confidentiality in ethics as it applies specifically to the following case. Zora, the client in question in the case, is a member of the Thompson family presented in the Week 1 media.

Zora is a 14-year-old, multi-ethnic (African American, Columbian, and Mexican) female who appears older than her stated age. She is abusing marijuana, Percocet, and Oxycontin. In defiance of her parents, she is dating Caucasian college-age boys (which her parents do not know about) and has become pregnant. She seeks counseling at a clinic for teenagers to think through how she wants to proceed. She is unsure if she wants to get an abortion, have the baby and give it up for adoption, or have the baby and join the “pregnant and parenting” services at her school. She hopes to gain clarity about what she wants before she possibly involves her family. The psychologist whom she sees at the clinic is a middle aged, Caucasian woman who is Catholic and who feels conflicted about counseling a 14-year-old who is considering an abortion. The psychologist seeks peer supervision to help her decide how she should ethically proceed. In the peer supervision group is an African American psychologist who happens to know Zora and her family, and figures out from the psychologist’s description that the client is Zora. She is shocked that Zora is pregnant and is very concerned. She wants to talk with Zora, but Zora is not her client and this information was relayed in peer supervision, which is a confidential setting. This psychologist is a close friend of Zora’s mother. She feels extremely conflicted as to what she should ethically do.

To prepare for this Assignment, consider the significance of confidentiality to the above case as you explore the conflicting ethical considerations at play. Consider how your own feelings, beliefs, attitudes, and cultural perspectives might influence how you conceptualize this case and include a brief self reflection on this in your paper.

2. The Iroquois Indians lived in peace for hundreds of years as a hunting nation, but in the seventeenth century, trade introduced by Europeans brought the Iroquois into competition with a neighboring tribe. A series of tribal wars developed, and the Iroquois ultimately became ferocious and successful warriors. This series of events suggest that:

 

a. warlike behavior is the result of uncontrollable aggressive instincts.

 

b. competition inevitably leads to violence.

 

c. changing social conditions can lead to changes in aggressive behavior.

 

d. aggressive behavior ensures evolutionary survival.

 

Why is this the best answer?

Article #26

 

4. Explain Malamuth’s findings on the predictors of naturalistic sexual aggression.

 

 

 

Personal Relevance

 

5. Some people believe that exposure to, or participation in, aggressive behavior is beneficial because it allows people to release their pent-up aggression. Where do you stand on this issue? Do you agree or disagree with this premise? Be sure to back up your answer with examples of relevant research.

 

 

 

Summary

 

6. Most everyone would agree that reducing human aggression is a worthwhile goal—one that may be crucial to our survival as a species. Summarize two of the several methods for achieving this goal. Support your choices with the relevant research.
