Please follow specific guidelines-this is a VERY difficult instructor- do not offer if not able to create original ON TOPIC work- see below for case study chosen:
Return to the case study that you considered in Assessment 1: Ethical Issue Analysis. Again, think of this assessment as a report you would make in a professional context.
- Analyze how this problem may unfairly impact members of the populations described in the Introduction to Hays’s ADDRESSING Model document. Initially, you should brainstorm as many of such effects as possible. You may also develop fictional scenarios related to your problem where individuals behave inequitably. However, if you do so, take care that your scenarios are realistic.
- Combine ideas that are similar when you have developed many entries.
- Assess each of your remaining entries in terms of importance:
- In what ways is it inequitable?
- How great or severe is the effect?
- How many people may be affected?
- Take care that you do not allow your own biases to minimize your assessments.
- Choose the entry that seems to be of greatest importance, on the basis of your evaluation.
- Organize your notes and attach them to Assessment 2 as an appendix.
Complete the following:
- Create a title page: Write a brief title that concisely conveys the purpose of this report. It is suggested that you use the APA Paper Template, linked in the Resources under the Suggested Resources heading to format your paper according to the APA manual (sixth edition).
- Write an introduction: For the introduction section of your paper, include the title at the top of the first page, and begin your introduction two spaces beneath your title. (In APA format, the word Introduction is not used as a heading.) Briefly summarize:
- The case you have chosen.
- How theories and research, in general terms, explain why the issue may have developed.
- How the case relates to culture-related attitudes that may affect future professional behavior.
- Create a heading titled Cultural Issue: Describe how the circumstances in the case study you chose unfairly impact members of one or more of the populations described in the Introduction to Hays’s ADDRESSING Model document.
- Create a heading titled Theoretical Explanations: Apply two or more psychological theories to explain how this culture-related issue may have developed.
- Create a heading titled Professional Behaviors: Analyze how attitudes related to culture, ethnicity, and diversity may have adversely affected professional behaviors within the case study scenario.
- Create a heading titled Proposed Cultural Guidelines and Competencies:
- Evaluate what cultural competencies a psychologist may use to help resolve this culture-related issue.
- Propose general guidelines to improve or resolve this cultural issue, and help prevent its reoccurrence.
- Describe the competencies necessary for working in a culturally diverse environment.
- Integrate psychological principles with your personal values and goals to formulate guidelines for your personal and professional behavior with regard to culture, ethnicity, and diversity.
- Create a heading titled Conclusion:
- Reflect upon and assess how your own attitudes associated with culture, ethnicity, and diversity may affect your future professional behaviors.
- Explain how the guidelines you developed will help you.
- Discuss some steps you could take to further your own growth in cultural competencies.
Refer to the Cultural Competency Scoring Guide to ensure that you meet the criteria for this assessment.

Case Study to write about:
Maria, a 70-year-old Hispanic woman, lives with her daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter in a spacious home on the lake. She enjoys reading on the patio, walking along the river’s edge, and taking her granddaughter to the park. She is fluent in Spanish, yet understands and speaks a little English.
Angel, Maria’s daughter, has noticed some behavioral changes in her mom that are troublesome. Her mom fell while walking to the car before they left for the restaurant and she had fallen the week before when walking into living room. Sara, Maria’s granddaughter, told her mom that she had to hold Grandma’s hand and bring her home from the park because she forgot how to get home.
Angel called the doctor and scheduled an appointment for her mom. Once Maria learned her daughter was planning to take her to the doctor Friday, she was very upset because she hadn’t been consulted first. Also, Maria didn’t have any bothersome symptoms and decided there was no reason a doctor needed to see her. All she needed was more sleep.
Maria and Angel arrived at the doctor’s office early Friday morning. The nurse brought them back to the examination room upon arrival as they were the first appointment of the day. Displeased, Maria allowed the nurse to take her weight, pulse, and blood pressure. Once the nurse was finished, she left the room and the doctor came in. While asking Maria some questions, the doctor spoke slowly and loudly as if she couldn’t hear. After the doctor learned that Maria’s understanding and speaking of English was minimal, he talked to Angel the entire time and then ordered additional tests without Maria’s consent. Maria was furious and wanted to go home.
Consider the individual, family, cultural beliefs and expectations, and ethical issues the individuals must think about as they interact with each other.
