  Discussion Topic: To Drink or Not to Drink For a long time mothers have been w

 
Discussion Topic: To Drink or Not to Drink
For a long time mothers have been warned about drinking any amount of alcohol while pregnant for fear of their child being born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). ”There is no known safe amount of alcohol use during pregnancy or while trying to get pregnant. There is also no safe time during pregnancy to drink. All types of alcohol are equally harmful, including all wines and beer. When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her baby.” (citation is missing). However, over the past few years reports are starting to come out stating that a couple of glasses of wine a week during pregnancy is okay. In fact, some doctors are saying this can be healthy for the baby because it relaxes the mother and lowers her level of stress.Before you start this week’s discussion find at least one article from the online library database about FAS and pregnancy.  See the search method below. Then consider one of the online articles (links) below. Does it oppose or support your journal article? Then answer the following questions:
What are the symptoms and long-term prognoses for a child born with FAS?
What are the risks to the baby if the mother suffers from chronic stress throughout the pregnancy?
Based on all you have read do you feel that the benefits of lowered stress levels by the mother outweigh the minor risks of drinking a glass of wine on a regular basis?
Make sure to support your point of view with information from the source(s) you read. 
Required: Peer-Reviewed Academic Journal article.
Week 1 library suggested article search method: 
Sign in to the online library.
Databases–>ProQuest–>pregnancy and fetal alcohol syndrome (all subjects and indexing)
Limit to full-text peer-reviewed scholarly journals
A peer-reviewed article is required. Any of the following are possible resources for your discussion. How do they agree with or conflict with your peer-reviewed article?
Alcohol Use in Pregnancy
Note: Remember to cite a source in your primary post. Also, refer to the Psychology Discussion Requirements listed under Getting Started.

Discussion: Definitions of Culture
A veritable plethora of scholarship has been devoted to attempting to define culture.  The concept is complex, yet most individuals have some idea about what the term means and includes. The idea of culture is so central to so much that makes us human, that it is well worth our time to explore and unpack its meaning in some depth. We may find that our ideas about culture share much in common with others’ ideas about culture, but we may also find some nuances or emphases in some definitions that are less apparent in other definitions.
For this Discussion, you will closely examine various definitions of culture and the importance it may have to the psychology community.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review the Learning Resources for this week and consider various definitions of culture.
Based on your review of the Learning Resources, post your responses to the following questions.
What are some definitions of culture that researchers have utilized?
What is a definition of culture that resonates with you and why?
Why should psychologists be interested in understanding culture?

Barbara,
 Excellent discussion.  For your topic, you may want to narrow it down a bit so you can develop a testable hypothesis.  I think you are closest with reasons why some parents seek care- if you utilize a psychological construct to test.  Since the parents are the ones in charge of getting their child help, I’d explore the mental health help seeking literature- what psychological variables have been linked to help seeking and how might this be connected to race/ethnicity.

   This week, you will focus on one of the models you studied during this course

  
This week, you will focus on one of the models you studied during this course. Your task in your Signature Assignment is to choose one of the classic MFT models that you learned about in this course and demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the model, including how the model approaches treatment planning. To do this, you are expected to describe how the model is based in systems theory, identify the theorist(s) who created the model, the role of the therapist, key assumptions, interventions, goals, course (length) of treatment, and limitations. Here is a general layout of what should be covered in this 
I. Introduce the  (overview of what you will address in the , which is to describe your chosen model).
II. Describe your chosen therapy model.   
Be sure to thoroughly articulate the primary theorist(s) of your selected Classic Model, including a specific illustration of why this model can be considered among approaches based on systems-based theories.
Describe the role of the therapist, key assumptions, interventions, goals, and course (length) of treatment using information from multiple sources and in-text citations. This is one of the most important sections of your , so focus your energy here. This section may include some information from the articles you located in Week 10.
Offer a critique of your chosen model. Discuss any possible limitations from this model, how cultural competency and diversity is addressed in the model, and any shortcomings of the model based on the research articles you located in Week 10.
III. Develop a treatment plan to treat the family. 
Create a brief case example. You can base your family system on a movie that you have seen, a family you know, your own family, or your imagination. Describe the family system, including important information about their context (this will include aspects of their culture, belief systems, etc.) and presenting problem(s). This section will be written up in a paragraph (around 400 words).
Present a brief general treatment plan that uses goals, tasks, and interventions that are theoretically consistent with the model you chose. Review the treatment plan materials from earlier in the course and format the treatment plan as you would during therapy (with appropriate labels/numbers for goals, etc.) rather than just writing in paragraph format.
IV. Conclusion- Summarize the main points of your.
To complete this assignment successfully, you are required to demonstrate your knowledge of the selected model and treatment planning.
