TWO PARTS

 

ONE Primary Task Response: Your first task is to post your own Key Assignment Outline (outline of your response to the Phase 4 IP) to the discussion area so that other students are able to review your plan. PART ONE ASSIGNMENT SHOULD BE THE OUTLINE FOR PART TWO ASSIGNMENT.

 

TWO During trial preparation, you are directed by the Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) to bring the tapes of intercepted conversations involving a prime suspect in your case to her office. You provide the evidence custodian with the necessary paperwork and are waiting for the tapes to be produced. After 20 minutes, the custodian comes back and asks if you are sure you have provided the correct case and exhibit numbers. You verify the numbers and are told the original tapes cannot be found.

You immediately inform your supervisor, who is understandably concerned. You have the paperwork documenting the fact that the tapes were transferred to the custody of the evidence custodian. The other agents in the office are asked whether they have any knowledge of this matter. No one has any idea as to what happened to the original tapes.

You and your supervisor call the AUSA and explain to her what has happened. She is furious and tells you not to be surprised if the judge throws out the entire case. You remind her that she has duplicate copies in her possession and that you have your working copies as well. She says her copies were barely audible, and apparently there was some problem with the recording equipment. You decide to do some research on the best evidence rule. 

Assignment Guidelines

  • Address the following in 1,250–1,500 words:
    • What is the best evidence rule? Explain in detail.

      • What is the rationale behind its application?

    • What is the likely outcome of your case in court if the originals are not located? Explain.
  • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

REFLECTIVE JOURNAL ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS

I'm 31

 

The Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to provide an opportunity for you to evaluate your journey through the developmental stages and transitions of your life and to reflect how the impact of these transitions may help or hinder your work as a counselor.

 

Basic Description: In Part A of this assignment, you will evaluate your life in 10 year segments up through your present age. In Part B of this assignment, you will provide a reflection on what you discovered and how you think it may impact you and your clients in your future counseling profession. 

 

Part A: 

•Compose a brief paragraph (approximately 100–150 words) about each 10-year segment of your life explaining the major events or transitions that have impacted you during each of those 10 years. Integrate Erikson’s eight stages of development as you write about your life. Was there a developmental task that was not successfully resolved at the appropriate age? The older you are, the longer this section will be as you will have a greater number of 10 year segments. This section will be approximately 1–3 pages in length.

•Determine what specific transition was the most difficult for you.

•Find and read a professional journal article or a chapter from a scholarly book that discusses that transition (marriage, divorce, eating disorder, empty nest, etc.). 

 

Part B: Upon completing Part A, compose a 3–5-page paper. First of all, summarize the journal or chapter you read in Part A in 1 paragraph, then describe the most influential transitions that you have experienced in your life. You are required to integrate concepts and discoveries from your class readings, the research you did (journal article or chapter), and presentations during Module/Week 3. Discuss strengths and weaknesses that may have developed from your transitions that may hinder or help you in your counseling and future burnout vulnerability.

 

The following questions may be considered while preparing your paper:

(You may elaborate on these meaningful questions in reference to your life’s transitions. The purpose of these questions is to stimulate your thinking by writing your paper; do not copy and answer each question.)

1.How did your developmental transitions impact you spiritually, emotionally, and physically?

2.How did your developmental years impact your biblical worldview?

3.Did anything specifically stand out in your development that may have impacted your decision to go into the counseling profession?

4.What was your role in your family when you were growing up, and what impact does it have on this attraction to counseling?

5.Who are you as a person?

6.What wounds or unfinished business do you carry with you into the counseling room?

7.How are you healing these wounds?

8.What do you notice or what do you think your work with clients will (does) trigger in you?

9.Whom do you have unfinished business with?

10.How do you handle being in conflict? Being confronted? Being evaluated? What defenses do you use in these situations?

11.What are repetitive or chronic issues for you? How might these affect your work with clients?

12.What do you see in other people that you consistently do not like? Reflect upon whether you can find these same qualities in yourself, and “own” them as also belonging to you.

World View Chart Assignment

 

DQ REL

"Actionless Action (Daosim) and the Practice of Virtue (Confucianism)"  Please view the materials in the Instructor's Insights and then respond to the following:

The overall problem is that we are caught up in the doing of things rather than being in the moment. Think of eating: we tend to eat, never enjoying the taste of food, totally missing the point where we are satiated. Instead we just gorge away until the food is gone then we mindlessly move to the next thing to do.

Instead, we should focus on the moment. Usually we think about where we need to be next. Usually we are thinking about what is going on rather than enjoying the moment. "In doing mode our mind is so often preoccupied with thoughts about what is going on that we may be only vaguely aware of what is actually happening." We also tend to be goal oriented in our actions. We do something in order to get to the next task.  In wu wei "there is no attachment to achieving any goal at all." There is no ought or should or correct or incorrect, good enough or not good enough in wu wei non-action.  We stop evaluating our experiences and instead enjoy the moment. "Non-striving...means broadening our focus beyond what's needed to reach a particular goal." But, it is not passive resignation. Instead, "we intentionally welcome and turn toward whatever arises."

With this in mind, can we really practice wu wei in America? Why or why not?
