For the Unit 9 Assignment, you will synthesize your understanding of the theories, best practices, and current trends in psychology to create a case. Begin by deciding on the type of job that interests you within your concentration. Imagine that you are a professional and create a hypothetical client whom you may encounter. Please note that the client does not always need to be an individual, but may be an agency, organization, or institution.
Here are some examples of a starting point for clients in each concentration:
Addictions: An adult who is trying to stop using alcohol.
Behavior Analysis: A teenager with autism who is having difficulty maintaining appropriate physical boundaries with others.
Child Development: An elementary school student who is dealing with the loss of her pet.
Industrial/Organizational Psychology: A supermarket that is seeking help with improving employee satisfaction and reducing employee turnover.
Please note that these are just some ideas and you should create a client that is interesting and relevant to you. In order to avoid potential confidentiality breaches, this should be a fictitious client, not a real person you know or have worked with.
Use the paper structure below to organize the facts and recommendations for your hypothetical client.
For example, Erikson’s Psychosocial Theory may be relevant to work with a client who is struggling to develop a sense of self amid peer pressure, particularly the stage of Identity versus Role Confusion. You would clearly describe the main points of the theory and relevant stage(s). Freud’s Psychoanalytic Theory may apply to a client using defense mechanisms when dealing with addiction issues. You would give a general description of the theory and then discuss the relevant defense mechanisms.
Be sure to address the advantages and disadvantages of using technology for the purpose(s) you choose. (1/2–1 page)
The body of the paper should be 6–8 pages, not including the title page and reference page. Write the paper using guidelines of Standard American English, and consult the Kaplan Writing Center if you have questions about grammar or format. Remember that all work must be your own and plagiarism is not tolerated. Be sure to review the plagiarism policy in your Syllabus. At least four academic references are required. Your paper should be in APA format.
