Moore , Ashley

Use the following scoring guide, along with the project information, for evaluating each learner’s work.

Assessment Instructions

Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other, so you are strongly encouraged to complete them in sequence.

Preparation

  • Create a case involving an ethical dilemma and cultural conflict(s) that could occur in your psychology specialization. It is recommended that you base the case study for this assessment on the one you developed in Assessment 2, with revisions in response to the feedback you received from faculty. However, you may create an entirely new case study that meets the criteria for this assessment. Again, while your case will be fictional, it must be entirely believable and realistic based on your psychology specialization.
  • Download and use the Combined Case Study Template, linked in Required Resources. Do not submit a paper for this assessment. Papers will not be graded. You will complete this assessment by replacing all language that is enclosed with brackets [?] in the PowerPoint with your own words. As in the previous assessments, you may enhance the design of the presentation to make it more effective. Again, links to tips for using PowerPoint and designing effective presentations are provided in Suggested Resources.

The Presentation

  1. Title slide: On the first slide of the PowerPoint:
    • Enter a descriptive title of approximately 5?15 words that concisely communicates the heart of the case study. It should stir interest while maintaining professional decorum.
    • Enter your name, and a job title and organization that would fit with your case study.
  2. Case Study Overview slides: Provide the briefest possible narrative description of the professional conflict in the case. Additional supporting details and references can be added on the notes section of the slide. The overview should include:
    • The professional setting of the case, based on your psychology specialization.
    • The relationship that exists between you and the other individual(s), agency/business, or institution involved. Some possible examples may be:
      • Professor?Student.
      • Therapist?Patient.
      • Colleague?Colleague.
      • Consultant?Business.
      • Clinical Supervisor?Student intern.
      • Administrative Supervisor?Employee.
    • A very brief summation of an ethical dilemma involving cultural conflicts.
  3. Cultural Differences slides: On the table provided, list side by side the main cultural identities from the Hays model, relevant to the conflict in the case, of yourself and another individual, agency/business, or institution in the case.
    • If more than one individual, agency/business, or institution is involved in the case, make a copy of this slide for each one, to compare yourself to all others involved.
    • In the notes section:
      • Identify common concerns with each cultural identity. Be careful to avoid using stereotypes.
      • Analyze how cultural differences contributed to the conflict in this case.
  4. Relevant Biases: Identify two relevant biases you have or had, and at least one strategy for improving your cultural competency around each of those biases.
    • Note: This slide may be reused from Assessment 2, but if you received suggestions for improving it, be sure to revise it.
  5. Ethical Concerns slides: Bullet point the three or more ethical concerns in the case and apply one or more ethical standard to each concern. Additional supporting details and references can be added in the notes section.
  6. Comparison of Ethical Theories slides: In the first row of the table provided, enter the names of two ethical theories that you think would be the most appropriate for the situations in the case. In the following rows, enter comparisons of relevant features of the two theories. In the notes section, evaluate which theory provides a more functional framework for your case and explain why. (Note that ethical theories and ethical decision-making models are two different things. Please make sure that you are applying, comparing, and contrasting two ethical theories).
  7. Ethical Decision-Making Model slides:
    • Identify each step in the model. Under each step of the model, apply it to your case.
    • Incorporate multicultural issues presented in the case study within the selected ethical decision-making model.
    • Add copies of this slide as needed, and combine steps on the slides as necessary or appropriate. In the notes section, write out supporting narrative details for your bullet points. (Note that ethical theories and ethical decision-making models are two different things. Please make sure that are applying the steps of the ethical decision-making model to your case).
  8. Best Practices When Working With [Cultural Identity] slide:
    • Identify a best practice for working with a cultural identity in this case and cite the source below. Citation requirements: You must cite best practices from at least three scholarly research articles. You may cite reputable source from Web sites, books, textbooks, and suggested resources as well, but these will not count toward the three required scholarly research references.
    • Analyze, briefly, how the best practice could help you navigate this particular relationship and conflict.
    • Describe, in the notes section, the best practice in more detail, and elaborate as needed on your analysis of how the best practice could help you navigate the relationship and conflict.
    • Note: This slide may be reused from Assessment 2, but if you received suggestions for improving it, be sure to revise it.
  9. Proposed Resolution slide: Use bullet points to summarize your proposed resolution to the ethical dilemmas in the case. In the notes section, write out supporting narrative details for your bullet points.
  10. References slides: Use current APA style and formatting guidelines.

Other Requirements

  • Written communication: Should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • Format: Use the Combined Case Study Template provided in the Required Resources. Use current APA style and formatting guidelines as applicable to this assessment.
  • Resources: 10 scholarly research articles that can include those used in previous assessments.
  • Length of PowerPoint: A minimum of 12 slides.

 

Overall Comments

 

Good job; however, your presentation is missing some important parts. Remember that these types of situations happen all of the time so you should be aware of how to navigate them.

Apply ethical principles and standards to ethical dilemmas.

not selected Does not apply ethical concerns with the case study and apply ethical standards to the concerns. not selected Applies at least two ethical concerns with the case scenario and minimally applies ethical standards to the concerns. not selected Applies at least three ethical concerns with the case scenario and adequately applies ethical standards to the concerns. selected Distinguished Applies at least three ethical concerns with the case scenario and comprehensively applies ethical standards to the concerns.

Comments:

Great job discussing the ethical concerns that you have related to this case scenario. Ethics should always be in the forefront of your mind in our field because we have access to vulnerable populations.

Criterion

(11%) Competency

Employ models of ethical reasoning and ethical decision making.

not selected Does not analyze ethical theories. selected Basic Minimally analyzes two ethical theories. not selected Adequately analyzes two ethical theories and justifies why a particular ethical theory is most appropriate in resolving the ethical dilemma in the case scenario. not selected Comprehensively analyzes contrasts two ethical theories and justifies why a particular ethical theory is most appropriate in resolving the ethical dilemma in the case scenario.

Comments:

It’s good that you listed the steps of an ethical decision-making model. Unfortunately, you didn’t apply these steps to your case. The steps are generic. Application helps you to understand how to use them.
