PSY 638 Module :6-1 Discussion

In your post, consider how a potential media stronghold over children and adolescents could lead to depressive symptoms.

For example, think about the media and its obsession with thinness, and particularly how this impacts female adolescents and the young-adult population. What do you think the relation is between over-viewing of idealized and unrealistic media portrayals and depressive symptoms?

Explain how rapidly depressive symptoms can lead to troublesome behaviors in direct correlation to media influence. Also reference co-morbid disorders that could potentially develop, such as eating disorders. Please research at least one real-world example to support your claims.

In response to your peers, suggest a possible solution to the relation of media and depression that they present. Feel free to bring in both outside research and support from the module’s resources to justify your solution.

PSY 638 Module 5-1 Journal: Physical and Mental Health

Based on Module Five’s articles on effective behavior change techniques in the prevention and management of childhood obesity, explain some of the practices that will enhance good health. Frame your answer around a major illness, such as juvenile diabetes, and thoroughly examine:

  • How this physical ailment could translate differently across gender
  • The vital role of the sleep cycle and the importance of physical activity in adolescents
  • How the void of adapting healthy practices could prove to have catastrophic consequences in adulthood
  • Stress management and its impact on health
  • The downfalls of inaccessibility for those who reside in geographically confining locations

After you have thoroughly examined the illness, suggest best practices from a health and child psychology perspective that could be beneficial to children and adolescents dealing with the illness you chose and support your explanation with evidence-based practices.

For additional details, please refer to the Journal Guidelines and Rubric document.

Moreover, the child exhibits social or emotional disturbance as outlined in the DSM 5.

PSY 638 Module 2 Discussion

Read ADD/ADHD Alternatives in the Classroom and Implications of Changes for the Field: ADHD. In your post, discuss your thoughts on working with children/adolescents in the classroom setting. Should teachers be trained to work with these students in a different manner compared to children/adolescents without ADHD?

Thoroughly argue and defend your position by evaluating and applying appropriated developmental theory and concepts with support from module readings and other articles as you deem necessary. Keep in mind DSM 5’s criteria for ADHD and determine whether providing DSM 5 training to educators would better enable them to support students with ADHD.

In response to your peers, support or counter their positions with support from the module’s readings or other research you have found. In your support or differentiated opinion of a colleague’s position, provide a real-world example that supports your views on whether training for educators should be mandated.

For example, should educators be mandated to attend trainings on a quarterly basis or yearly basis, and what content should be presented to educators to ensure they are interacting effectively with students with ADHD?
