Bullying paper Due Today!!!!

Growing numbers of school students—boys and girls of all ages—are victimized by bullies. In a recent survey, one-third of students in grades 6 through 10 said they were bullied in the past year. Cyber bullying is becoming more and more rampant in school and after school among teens and children. Social networking has provided an entirely new environment for bullying to take place. According to bullying statistics in 2010, there are about 2.7 million students being bullied each year by about 2.1 million students taking on the role of the bully. New bullying statistics for 2010 revealed about one in seven students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade is either a bully or has been a victim of bullying.

Read the section on Bullying in Chapter 8 of your textbook and watch the video in this module.  Write a 2 page reflection paper addressing the following issues: Describe an instance where you remember being the victim, perpetrator, or witness of bullying, and how you handled the situation at the time. How would you respond if you were the parent of a child being bullied? If you were a school principal, how would you design and implement a bullying prevention/reduction problem at your school?

Discussion: Organizational Behavior and Social Change


Organizations are intricate and complex entities comprised of individuals who are just as complex. Understanding organizations requires examining a host of unique perspectives and theories, many of which you have explored throughout this course. These perspectives offer new insights about organizational behavior, and new insights allow for meaningful application. As an I/O psychologist, it is essential that you understand the interdependence of individuals, organizations, and society, as well as the impact of internal and external influences on the changing nature of the workforce. At the center of I/O psychology are the following elements of sustainable development—social, economic, and environmental factors. These elements highlight the unique role that I/O psychologists play in shaping public policy both in the U.S. and internationally to promote and influence social change. For this Discussion, consider organizational behaviors that you think may be changing or that require change and how these changes can benefit employees and team dynamics.

Post  an explanation of at least two insights that you gained about organizational behavior. Explain how the psychology of organizational behavior might contribute to social change.

Midterm elections were more than a year ago but of course the 2020 presidential election is in the media already. You may have noticed that a lot of what is happening before and during an election season can be (and has been) addressed by social psychologists. Since it seems that we are in the continuous election mode, pick THREE concepts from chapter 15 that are relevant to elections in some way. You may describe something from your own experience or in general. Define each concept and explain its relevance to elections. Some examples of ch. 15 concepts that are relevant to elections are:

* attributions, fundamental attribution error (how we explain our own and others’ voting behavior)

* attitudes (how affective and cognitive components affect the behavioral component, voting)

* cognitive dissonance

* persuasion techniques (different routes to persuasion)

* compliance techniques (compliance in general, foot-in-the-door and door-in-the-face techniques)

* conformity (voting out of conformity, for example)

* group polarization

* mere-exposure effect

There may be other concepts that you’ve read about in chapter 15 that you feel are relevant to elections. Feel free to discuss those, as long as you can legitimately link them to elections (and explain your reasoning).

m5A2 Discussion Child and Family

  Assignment 2: Discussion—Resiliency Factors and Prosocial Behavior

Too many times when we are assessing a child it is because there is a problem at home or at school that needs to be addressed, and the interventions that have been used thus far have not been successful. Unfortunately, we do not look enough for what is going right as well. There are many wonderful resiliency factors at play in the family and many prosocial behaviors that are encouraged in the community.

Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research some resiliency factors and some prosocial behaviors. Choose one resiliency factor (close bond with a caring adult, opportunities for responsibility, social skills, conflict resolution skills, supportive role models, sense of autonomy, and positive relating skills) or pro-social behavior (cooperation, empathy, altruism, sharing, giving comfort, offering to help, generosity, and respect) and then respond to the following: Describe the important factors to be considered when teaching your selected resiliency factor or pro-social behavior to either a young child or an adolescent. Why are these factors important? Explain some of the obstacles to presenting this information in a manner to which children or adolescents would be receptive.

Write your initial response in a minimum of 300–400 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources, including use of in-text citations and full references. Incorporate information from at least two academic sources to support your statements or ideas. Academic sources could include your textbook, required readings for this week, or academic journal articles found in the Argosy University online library.

By the due date assigned, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through the end of the module, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses. Consider commenting on the following: Do you agree with the obstacles and the importance of the factors presented by your peers? Why or why not? Suggest some alternative factors or obstacles not discussed by your peers. Upon reviewing your peers’ answers, discuss whether you would like to consider a new perspective or whether your original perspective has been strengthened.

  Assignment 1: Discussion Question: Effective Techniques

By the due date assigned respond to the discussion question presented. Submit your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Use the same Discussion Areato comment on two of your classmates’ submissions and continue the discussion until through the end of the module. Discussion Question

Locate on the internet a video of an interview. You may choose a news interview or any other interview you can locate.

Your job is to review the interview, and identify at least three instances of the use of interview techniques (paraphrase, summary, silence, reflection, or interpretation). In your discussion post, provide quotes of what the interviewer and interviewee said (or did not say in the case of silence) that demonstrate each interview technique. Be sure to identify the technique for which you are providing each example.

After you identify the interview techniques (you may use the same technique or different ones) with your three examples, also provide an analysis of the effectiveness of each technique. That is, was the technique effective? How did the interviewee respond to the technique?

Be sure to provide a link to the video clip you are analyzing so that your classmates may also view the clip. Please be sure you cite all the sources you used in the assignment.

In your response posts to your classmates, view the clips that your classmates have located. Do you agree with the techniques that your classmates have identified? Your classmates’ analysis of the effect of the technique? Please explain why you agree or do not agree.
