Ashford PSY 645 Week 3 Discussion Addressing and Confronting Bias and Prejudice
Addressing and Confronting Bias and Prejudice [CLO: 3]. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read Chapters 8, 12, and 13 in DSM 5 Made Easy: The Clinician’s Guide to Diagnosis; Chapter 2 in Turning Points in Dynamic Psychotherapy: Initial Assessment, Boundaries, Money, Disruptions and Suicidal Crises; Chapter 5 in The Psychiatric Interview: Evaluation and Diagnosis; all required articles; and review the PSY645 Fictional Sociocultural Case Studies document.
One of the most important aspects of developing competence in psychopathology is to be as honestly and completely aware as possible of your personal attitudes toward people who have mental health conditions. Through this awareness, we are better able to challenge our own biases and prejudicial views in order to be more open to the findings within scholarly research.
For your initial post in this discussion, choose one of the three case studies from the PSY645 Fictional Sociocultural Case Studies document, and write a detailed description of your uncensored personal observation of the patient depicted. Describe at least one theoretical orientation you would use to conceptualize your view of thepatient’s problem and how it may have developed. Identify the issues you might focus on in treatment with thispatient. Be sure to identify within your post which of the three case studies you have chosen.
Guided Response: Review several of your colleagues’ posts, and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful interactive discourse in this discussion.
Examine your colleague’s initial post, and formulate a possible response. Research a minimum of two peer- reviewed articles that support the views presented in your response. Compose a response that uses a sociocultural perspective to assess the validity of your colleague’s observation and his or her proposed direction of treatment.
Outline any biases or prejudicial views you observe in your colleague’s post which may affect their conceptualization of the patient’s problems. Remember that your colleague is being open and honest regarding his or her personal views; therefore, your task is to provide persuasive information to encourage your colleague to adopt a view that is supported by peer-reviewed literature. Pay close attention to the tone of your response to ensure your colleague will not become defensive when reading it. Be sure to use at least two peer-reviewed sources to support your statements.
