Implications of an ethical issue according to the Christian worldview

In this assignment, you will analyze the implications of an ethical issue according to the Christian worldview. You will be challenged to think about Christian worldview core beliefs and apply what you have learned over this course. This will be a thorough analysis of a case study you will choose from the options provided.

Write a 1,000-1,500-word essay in which you analyze ethical thinking and use values-based decision-making to address a case study from the perspective of the Christian worldview. Choose one case study from the five options listed in the attached “Ethical Dilemmas” document.

After an appropriate introductory paragraph with a thesis statement in which you name the scenario you are choosing, address each of the following six sections with at least one paragraph each. Write at least one paragraph for each component using the underlined titles for a subheading.

Ethical Dilemma: Briefly describe the ethical dilemma in your own words, including (a) what in the scenario makes it difficult to make an ethical decision and (b) at least two options for resolving the scenario, providing a brief overview of what sort of ethical decisions each option might make.

Core Beliefs: What beliefs about God and humanity from the Christian worldview are relevant to the scenario? How might these core worldview commitments of Christians influence one’s decision-making with regard to this scenario?

Resolution: Describe the Christian worldview’s proposal for resolving the ethical dilemma. How should the person in the scenario act according to the Christian worldview? What is the best course of action for a Christian? (Note: The resolution should be consistent with Christian worldview commitments.)

Evaluation: What might be the unintended consequences and perceived benefits of the resolution proposed by the Christian worldview?

Comparison: How does the Christian worldview resolution compare to how another worldview might resolve the dilemma? Choose a specific contrasting worldview, such as atheism, pantheism, or scientism.

Conclusion: Synthesize the main points, pulling the ideas of the paper together.

Assignment: Recognizing and Responding to Those Who Self-Harm

For some adolescents, experiencing physical pain becomes a regular practice for managing psychological pain. Whether used as a coping mechanism, a way to express anger, or to deal with intense emotional pain, self-harming is often a call for help.

 

In school settings, faculty and staff are charged with protecting students, but how can they protect those students who choose to harm themselves? The importance of educators understanding the circumstances, causes, and effects of self-harming behavior so they can respond quickly and effectively cannot be overstated. For this Assignment, consider your role as a social worker and think about how you would raise awareness for educators to respond to this increasing maladaptive coping mechanism.

 

By Day 7

 

Submit a 5- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation explaining the indicators of self-harm, appropriate interventions, and follow-up steps for educators needing to respond to those who self-harm.

0 Strategic Points Quantitative Study Extraction #1

In the prospectus, proposal, and dissertation there are 10 strategic points that need to be clear, simple, correct, and aligned to ensure the research is doable, valuable, and credible. These points, which provide a guide or vision for the research, are present in almost any research study. The ability to identify these points is one of the first skills required in the creation of a viable doctoral dissertation. In this assignment, you will identify and evaluate 10 strategic points in a published quantitative research study.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

    • Review the Casteel dissertation.
    • Locate and download “Modified 10 Points Template.”
    • This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
    • APA style is required for this assignment.
    • You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.

Directions:

Using the “Modified 10 Points Template,” identify each of the 10 strategic points in this quantitative dissertation.

    1.  Discuss the key points in the literature review and how the author used this section to identify the gap or problem addressed in the study.
    1. Describe the variables under study and how they are a key component in this quantitative research study. You are not expected to understand the differences between variables at this point, but should be able to identify how they inform the problem, purpose, research questions and data collection instruments.
    1. Describe the problem and how it informed the research questions under study.
    1. Describe the quantitative design used and why it is appropriate for the identified problem and research questions. Support your response with a peer-reviewed citation from a research source.
    1. Assess the appropriateness of the instruments used to collect data and answer the research questions as well as to address the stated problem.
    1. Discuss how the problem statement informed the development of the purpose statement in the825-RS-CasteelQuantDissertation

role of healthcare administrators in the development and implementation of quality standards as part of the strategic planning process

    • This course has focused on the understanding of the role of healthcare administrators in the development and implementation of quality standards as part of the strategic planning process. This final paper requires research and analysis of a case study focusing on various quality improvement issues encountered by the healthcare administrator. The purpose of the assignment is to apply course concepts in the analysis and interpretation of situations in health administration.

 

    • Students will select a case from one of the websites noted in week 2. Students should avoid duplication of cases. Students must use the case submitted and agreed upon in Unit 2 unless approved by the instructor.

 

    • In order to analyze a case study, one must examine closely the issues in which the healthcare agency is confronted. Most often, it may be necessary to read the case several times – once to grasp the overall picture of what is happening to the facility and then several times more to discover and grasp the specific problems.

 

    • After reviewing the details of the case study, students should complete a professional analysis paper.

 

    • Requirements: 1,500 – 2,000 words, APA-compliant. The page length requirement does not include the required title page and reference pages.

 

    • Recommended paper format:

 

    • Title page and page numbers

 

    • Introduction – This section of the paper should provide background information on the case. This includes a brief overview of the key facts of the case. It may be necessary to use properly referenced sources to support information in this section. This component of the paper should not be lengthy but should contain enough information to create interest in the case.

 

    • Statement of the problem – Define the central issue. The paper should include a concise statement of the major problem identified in the case. Many cases will involve several issues or problems. Identify the most important problems and separate them from the more trivial issues.

 

    • Causes of the Problem– This section provides a detailed analysis of the causes of the problem identified. Students should clearly demonstrate the use of course concepts in problem identification.

 

    • Possible solutions– This section should detail a variety of solutions to the problem in addition to the ones that may be mentioned in the case. Make sure that the solution addresses the CAUSE of the problem. The analysis should address what should be done, by whom, and in what sequence. Students should also consider the pros and cons of all possible solutions.

 

    • Recommendations and Conclusions– This section of the case analysis process involves making recommendations based on your analysis. Obviously, the quality of your recommendations is a direct result of the thoroughness with which you prepared the case analysis. This section of the analysis should tell why your solution and implementation will work. A major objective of this section is to show how course concepts are applied to reach a workable solution. The conclusions and recommendations should be supported by references, course readings, and lecture notes.

 

    • Christian worldview – The last part of the paper should also address how your Christian worldview perspective impacts or frames your ideas and discussions related to the issues presented in the paper. This part of the assignment should be 500-750 words in length (within the paper).

 

    • Reference page – Your paper must be APA-compliant. Resources for APA formatting are included in the Resources section of this module. You should have a minimum of five references (not including The Holy Bible which should not be listed on the reference page).
