Assignment 1: Quantitative vs. Qualitative Research

The qualitative approach to research involves the collection of extensive amounts of narrative and written data in order to gain insight into an event, occurrence, strategy, or phenomenon. Quantitative research involves the collection of numerical measurement data in order to explain, predict, or control the interest area of research.

Using the Socratic method, answer the following questions:

ssignment Details

The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates is known for a technique called the Socratic Method, in which the teacher leads the student through a process of questioning to come to a logically valid conclusion.

Born in 469 B.C.E., Socrates is considered one of the founding fathers of Western philosophy, even though he left no writings behind and very little is known about him. Everything that is known of his teachings is found in the works of his students, like Plato. Much of Plato’s writings are dialogues between Socrates and his students.

Using the Socratic method, answer the following questions:

Part 1

What do you think of Socrates’ conclusion that no person knowingly does evil, and therefore, all evil is ignorance?Do you agree or disagree, and why?

Part 2

If people accepted that all evil is ignorance, what implications would that have on the justice system?How would prison sentencing or the death penalty be affected?Discuss with 2 or more classmates their opinions and whether or not you agree or disagree with their statements

Where in the kidney is the renal medulla?

Kidney is bean shaped organ with a convex and a concave surface. It is internally distinguished in two functional regions: cortex part towards outer convex side and medulla towards inside.

Anatomy of kidney in LS (longitudinal section) is seen best in the diagram attached below. It shows three distinct areas within kidney: these are cortex, medulla and pelvis. An outlet, ureter, arises from renal pelvis located at concave curvature.

Renal medulla is divided in triangular renal pyramids. The renal cortex remains extended between pyramidal masses as Columns of Bertini.

Medulla is associated with nephrons and collecting ducts where urine becomes more concentrated.

Psych Discussion Response

  Original Question:

Humanistic and Existential Perspectives

Forum Assignment for the Week:

Contrast the Humanistic and Existential perspectives as they pertain to the concept of personality. Which philosophical assumptions were most important to Rogers? Using the Existential framework, how do times of change and crisis lead us to reconsider our values?

Reply t the following response with 200 words minimum.  (please make response as if having a conversation, respond directly to some of the statements in below post.)

   In looking at existentialism and humanistic perspectives, existentialism deals with those that look into the meaning of life.  Basically, existentialists look at what drives people and why people exist in the first place.  They also view people to be reliant of the world around them to exist and vice versa being the world must rely on humans to exist because humans will perceive the world (Friedman & Schustack, 2012).  In the mind of existentialists, responsibility is placed solely in the hands of the person who it is relating to.  This meaning that it looks at how someone will overcome something or not, how they will use their freedom to overcome or possibly succumb to something instead.  Overall existentialists do not value the role of the person as highly at humanistic idealists do, humanism itself emphasizes the personal worth of the individual and the centrality of human values (Friedman & Schustack, 2012).  Humanism also does look at things like ethics and love like existentialists, however they primarily look into the environment and how it affects the person.  Behavior to them is controlled by unconscious forces in a person’s environment as well as prior experiences. 

            Carl Rodgers is credited with being one of the founders of the humanistic approach to psychology.  In his mind people fell into shaping themselves based on what they believed what the best course of action.  People would do this by working hard to get what they thought was best, doing this while understanding that other people are different and that we should work towards ones best self (Friedman & Schustack, 2012).  A person must come to terms with their true nature in Roger’s eyes, following what they believe they are being pushed into is not appropriate, your true self is what matters.  Lastly, Rogerian theory brings up the idea that a person must drop all masks and blending tools so that he/she can be more open and self-trusting in what they life and personality should be. 

            Using the existential framework to look at times of change and crisis and how a person could use these to reconsider their values, quite simply when a person finds themselves in time of turmoil, it is normal to wonder and think if maybe they should change.  It is in this change where a person can realize that something is wrong or on the flipside something is right.  If a person experiences a bad break up that leaves them in complete disarray, they may change the way they act the next time they begin dating to try and weed out that experience from happening again.  The primary way an existentialist would look at this is by seeing what the person did when presented with the option of love or conflict, if they used their freedom to handle it or not handle it at all.  The world is shaped and acting in a certain way, in a sense, to existentialists the personality of the person is gone and to them it should not have been surprised that the relationship ended, but they would have been surprised that the person acted so poorly after it did because they should have known it was inevitable.

Guidelines:

This essay will require you to explore the role of culture in assessment and treatment. Create a hypothetical case by first identifying an individual’s culture (military, female, African American, college student, New Yorker, etc.), and secondly a substance abuse problem (alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamines, opioids, etc.). Then describe a specific treatment strategy that would be sensitive to the person’s culture and their addiction. Think about how the person self-identifies with the culture, cultural explanation of the illness, cultural practices re the substance, and treatment barriers. I want you to carefully consider how a treatment plan might look different for an American Indian with an alcohol addiction vs. a homeless person with a meth addiction, for example.
