Initial Post:
hanks for informing me, the appropriate social psychological theory of health applications in the Coronavirus pandemic is the health belief model. It can influence compliance to the containment measures of preventing the rapid spread of coronavirus because it is relevant in disease prevention programs. The health belief model explains and predicts changing patterns surrounding health behaviors. Hence, its wide usage. Awareness about coronavirus’s direct effects can pressurize people to be more vigilant on the containment measures such as wearing masks, social distancing, observing proper hygiene, and avoiding crowded places.
The health belief model’s theoretical constructs are based on cognitive psychology theories. Mental processes propose that behavior is a function of how human beings value results and evaluate expectations. When people assess risks developing from coronavirus subjectively, the process is called perceived susceptibility. Individuals who believe in their susceptibility to emerging health problems are cautious in their behaviors to reduce exposure to risks. Coronavirus spreads faster among individuals with low perceived susceptibility because their denial exposure to the risks contributes to careless actions. Furthermore, some individuals acknowledge their possible exposure to health risks but consider them unlikely.
The perceived threat is a combination of perceived susceptibility and perceived severity. People’s perceptions about particular health conditions depend on their knowledge about the causes and effects. Individuals who strictly follow the guidelines of preventing risky illnesses need to identify the value of their efforts to avoid being influenced negatively by others.  Individuals’ assessment of the barrier to behavior change is a perceived barrier. Obstacles such as poverty, inadequate infrastructure, and inappropriate research hinder people from engaging in health promotion behaviors regardless of their risk awareness.
Colleagues Answer:
I get mentally stimulated by our course information as well. You saw evidence of this in another class (613) where I steered off course. I think this is a great side effect. Kudos to our instructors for initiating a plethora of ideas. Thank you.
The differences in health models we applied to the pandemic do make me wonder about the applicability of each model according to individual personalities. Perhaps all three should be incorporated simultaneously?
Would people seek out the best model accordingly just as people seek out news articles that support their ideology? With some of the public rejecting the science-based information gathered and choosing to seek out anything that they felt negated the facts, what if all the messages had been presented in a more cohesive manner. I think there were a lot of missed opportunities for political and religious leaders to help our country have better outcomes.

During your field education experience, you will interact with multiple clients.

During your field education experience, you will interact with multiple clients. As you interact with clients and review your process recordings, you might discover that one client stands out. This may be due to the services needed or a potential case history that interests you.
As a future social worker, preparing a case presentation allows you to present social work practice skills demonstrated in addressing client needs to your colleagues.
For this Assignment, you will submit a case presentation of a client you encountered during your field education experience. Review your field education experience notes and your previous process recordings.
The Assignment: (4 pages)
Create a Case Presentation that includes the following:
An explanation of your agency and the services offered
A description of your client to include demographics, presenting problem, goal, legal/ethical considerations, assessment, and proposed treatment/social services delivery plan and the inclusion of termination plans if applicable
An explanation of whether interacting with your client demonstrated social work practice skills
Identification of potential social work skills not demonstrated in your agency or field placement to include a proposed professional development plan
An explanation of how preparing and engaging in a formal case presentation represents a component of professional social work

Evidence based practice is essential to effective social work practice. For this

Evidence based practice is essential to effective social work practice. For this assignment, you are required to (a) identify a current practice problem relevant in your current agency (i.e., working with resistant clients, engaging clients when they don’t talk much, having negative perceptions about your client, counter transference, etc.), (b) after identifying your practice problem, conduct an extensive literature search as it relates to your practice problem that provides you with a complete understanding of the practice problem.
Based on your findings in the literature, what did you discover that will help you address your practice problem? How might your research guide your work in your field agency?  After reviewing the literature/research and comparing it to the practice problem, the student is expected to do the following:
Submit a 1 page reflection paper that:
Briefly discusses the literature
Briefly identifies the practice problem
Briefly explains how the literature will be used to address the practice problem while engaging in the agency.
Agency: Parents and Children Together Family peace center working with offenders.

A process recording is a written tool used by field education experience student

A process recording is a written tool used by field education experience students, field instructors, and faculty to examine the dynamics of social work interactions in time. Process recordings can help in developing and refining interviewing and intervention skills. By conceptualizing and organizing ongoing activities with social work clients, you are able to clarify the purpose of interviews and interventions, identify personal and professional strengths and weaknesses, and improve self-awareness. The process recording is also a useful tool in exploring the interpersonal dynamics and values operating between you and the client system through an analysis of filtering the process used in recording a session.
For this Assignment, you will submit a process recording of your field education experiences specific to this week.
The Assignment: (2 pages)
*Provide a transcript of what happened during your field education experience, including a dialogue of interaction with a client.
*Explain your interpretation of what occurred in the dialogue, including social work practice or theories, and explain how it might relate to engagement covered this week.
*Describe your reactions and/or any issues related to your interaction with a client during your field education experience.
*Explain how you applied social work practice skills when performing the activities during your process recording.
I am completing my field experience (internship) at a place called Parents and Children Together Hawaii. They have different programs that they provide to the community. However, I am specifically interning with the Family Peace Center in which I work with domestic violence offenders. At this time, I am co-facilitating psychoeducational groups and performing assessments on potential clients that need to enter the domestic violence intervention program. So, for this assignment, you can make up something to complete using the information I gave you. It needs to relate to domestic violence offenders and what I am doing with the agency to make sense.

Write a 5–6 page assessment in which you identify a famous individual who has been diagnosed with a disorder listed in the DSM5, describe the diagnosis, analyze the quality of their life living with the disorder, present evidence-based treatment recommendations for the disorder, and support your recommendations with findings from research.
For this assessment, you are asked to think critically about the current diagnostic system and the medical model of mental illness.
The DSM diagnoses are applied to individuals. Symptomatic individuals are brought to health care providers and diagnostic labels are applied to them. However, our understanding of the psychological conditions individuals experience is enhanced if we keep in mind that various ages and populations are probably more sensitive to environmental conditions than others. Carefully selecting a diagnoses and ensuring that it is evident in the client will result in the most effective treatment.
For this assessment, you are asked to think critically about the current diagnostic system and the medical model of mental illness.
Select a celebrity or famous individual who has been diagnosed with a disorder listed in the DSM-5.
Describe the diagnosis, discussing each criterion the client fits and does not fit for that diagnosis from the DSM-5 (which you should cite).
Analyze the quality of their life living with this disorder.
In what way has the disorder impeded or limited their success?
In what way did it enhance their success?
Find a journal article that discusses this disorder and analyze how the article’s discussion of the diagnosis compares to the behaviors the individual displays?
Analyze treatments for the diagnosis of the chosen individual and support why they would be recommended (one or both of these treatments should come from a current, peer-reviewed journal article).
Discern how, as a professional in the field of psychology, you would use the information from the article to inform your professional behavior.
Additional Requirements
For this assignment, you are expected to meet the following requirements:
Title page: Include your name, course, date, and instructor.
