7. In an exploratory study such as this, one problem is defining what the "data" are -- the information we should collect. Also, what should have been done to minimize the effects of experimenter bias on the outcome of the study? What were the dangers of the principal investigator assuming the role of prison superintendent?
This research is important because understanding what makes a juvenile delinquent is necessary to know. Parents can be educated on what is affecting their teen to contribute to delinquent behavior. The family structure has been avoided by many citizens. Educating the public on the family structure can make a different in a teen’s life.
The purpose of this assignment is to explore the appropriate steps to take in order to successfully research topics in the counseling field. Research helps explains things in a more detailed and practical sense. We learn more through research and gain more understanding about the topic. Research is very important if you want to prove the integrity of a study especially when writing a paper. Conducting a research and citing sources will make it more believable.
For the public defenders and prosecutors, I will ask the head of each group for verbal consent to carry out the research. For the homeless population, I will use convenience sampling when sending out surveys. I will walk around the general vicinity and ask the clients, if they can spare 15 minutes for the research. They will be asked to complete a series of questions. The surveys will differ depending on the group. For the public defenders, the questions will focus on the scope of the issues that their office faces. When it comes to the prosecutors, the questions will focus on whether or not, they want any change to the current state of affairs. Lastly, for the clients, the questions will focus on their experience with the criminal justice system and what kind of changes they
Currently, I am working as a medical assistant for Dr. Richard Bell at Associates in Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, a private practice of four physicians located on the campus of St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri. I currently work forty hours per week and plan on keeping this position until next summer. I work alongside Dr. Bell to perform both clinical and administrative duties. As integral part of the practice, my clinical duties include: taking medical histories, explaining treatment procedures to patients, collecting and preparing laboratory specimens, instructing patients about medication and wound care, preparing and administering medications as directed by the physician, authorizing prescription refills as directed, and removing sutures and changing dressings. I also serve as a scribe for Dr. Bell by converting his handwritten patient visit notes to an electronic record.
Parental engagement has been a challenge for child protection workers. When a family is going through issues like violence or substance abuse it is hard to focus on the children. Not having connection or communication with children can
In my current field placement I work with adults who are seeking help with mental illness and substance use. The program is a Partial Hospital Program (PHP), however, there is housing available to those who are homeless. The program is a two to three week program and while the patients are there, the case managers provide group therapy, help with scheduling aftercare and find housing for those who need it. A large percentage of the patients have untreated mental illness and have been self medicating with substances.
I currently work for West Point Public Schools, I will be starting my seventh year with in the district. During my time at West Point, I have been involved in several different roles. I have been a sixth grade teacher where I taught the lower level reading, and language arts classes. All of the sixth grade United States History, along with being the sixth grade special education case manager, and served as one of the upper elementary reading coaches along with being a special education behavior teacher.
I am choosing to interview a patient, a family members of a patient, and an employee (nurses, aides, physical therapists, etc.) of the Notting Hill of West Bloomfield rehabilitation facility. Conducting interviews will be the most helpful for my research because it is easiest to attain personal stories and opinions this way. Also, interviewing people from different perspectives of the facility will give me a wide variety of information and experiences of Notting Hill. Further, with interviews, I am able to receive in-depth information that is specialized for whomever I am talking to. This will give me a lot of quotes and information to work with as I research my question. I would not be able to do the fieldwork of experimenting because this phenomenon takes place in a setting where I cannot control the environment. Observing would work, however, I would only be able to collect surface information. Interviews allow me to get more personal information with backstory. Surveying would work as well, but again, I would not receive the personal and specialized stories and opinions that interviewing allows. I am aware that interviews are the most time consuming, however, I already spend many hours of my weekends at the Notting Hill of West Bloomfield rehabilitation facility to visit my grandmother, so the time will not be an issue. Through asking questions about the quality
As a criminal justice and psychology major, my primary experience has involved extensive research related to both fields. Specifically, my research experience has involved independent and collaborative work in designing and conducting different types of research projects that adheres to research method procedures and ethics. Through my studies, I have also attained knowledge regarding the structure of the correctional system, with
Individuals that responded were contacted and briefly screened by the researcher using inclusionary criteria (see Appendix_). In order to be eligible for research participation, individuals had to meet the following criteria (1) currently be a licensed professional counselor, (2) had a personal counseling experience that was not part of any educational, degree seeking or certification requirement, (3) completed a personal counseling experience that included at least four sessions, (4) have at least two years experience working with clients as a licensed professional counselor, (5) be willing to complete a demographic questionnaire and submit a copy of your current curriculum vita, (6) have the ability to reflect deeply on their experience of personal counseling, (7) be willing to participate in both an in-depth initial (60-90 minutes) and follow-up (30 minutes) interview and, (8) consent to the audio recording of the initial and follow-up interviews. Individuals meeting the criteria were scheduled for an initial telephone and emailed a complete description of the study that included the consent, demographic information sheet and request for a copy of their current vitae as approved by institutional review
I would like to believe that each individual reflects upon how they can become a better person the next day. In reality, I understand that not everyone thinks this way. And even those who do will not think like this every day. When examining one’s life decisions, it is important to reflect upon where one has come from and where one aims to go. In my own personal life, I aim to become a clinical social worker to aid in the relief of those who have suffered. More specifically, I would like to work in urgent care, hospitals, and hospice in order to help those with physical conditions understand the ramifications of their decisions and have as much peace among the chaos in their lives as possible.
Before starting the assessment with the patient I read through his patient notes to learn about their family history for example with this patient he has no relationship with his brother but his closest relative is his uncle that visits him often. I also asked the Nurse in Charge (NIC) and my educator about any sensitive subjects I should be aware of and discussed his medical history and state of health on the day of the assessment. This was done to gain an understanding of his behaviour and knowledge of his experience before and during his illness (Creek and Lawson-Porter, 2008). On reflection this allowed me to gain a huge insight into the history of his mental illness. This allowed me to feel comfortable when he brought up the subject of his illness as I felt as if I had an insight into his past. I also felt that by him bringing this conversation up he felt as if he could trust
This personal case study will be giving a brief summary on the key aspects of research that I believe will have the greatest influence on my future career as a Law Enforcement Officer, wishing to study the minds of juveniles and how to reduce the recidivism rate before they become an adult. The key components that I learned about research which I will be discussing are, formulating a research question, generating hypothesis, and threats to internal validity.
