  3. ABS 497 Course Material • Fabian’s Story. Read Fabian’s story in the “Human Behavior and Community Macro Systems: Sociopsychological Perspective” section of your textbook. Briefly describe the sociopsychological perspective and compare it to at least one other perspective the book discusses. How can the sociopsychological perspective be used to understand, and perhaps solve, Fabian’s issue? Is there another perspective that would offer a better solution? Explain your answers. • Doug’s Story. Read Doug’s story in the Human Ecology Perspective section of your textbook. Respond to the ethical questions that follow. To what extent is economic inequality fair? Did Doug have the right to vent his anger in such a violent manner? What, if anything, could be done to improve Doug’s economic and ecological status?

  4. ABS 497 Course Material • Parenting Styles. Briefly describe the different parenting styles discussed in this week’s readings. How could they impact cognitive and social development? Identify the style that your parents applied to you, or the style you apply to your children. What do the readings say about the effects of this parenting style on cognitive and social development? Is this evidence supported by your own experiences? • Ethnicity and Learning Theory. Select an ethnic group from your textbook, or outside readings, and discuss how the application of learning theory may vary according to the cultural beliefs and values of this group. Based on the research, justify why you think specific learning techniques could be used by your chosen ethnic group.

Title of the training b. Student’s name c. Course name and number d. Instructor’s name e. Date submitted 3. Must present a thesis statement regarding why social skills training would be appropriate for adolescents. • Suicide. Chapter 7 of the textbook discusses adolescent suicide. Select a group that could be considered a minority (e.g., Hispanics, homosexuals, or students with learning disabilities) and discuss the potential suicide risk for this group. What factors may make them more or less likely to attempt suicide than other groups? What support can be given to individuals and/or groups to decrease suicide attempts? Rely on research findings to answer these questions. ABS 497 Week 3 Assignment communication PowerPoint Presentation ABS 497 Week 3 DQ 1 Suicide

  6. ABS 497 Course Material • Development Theories. Select either Kohlberg’s theory of moral development, Gilligan’s theory of moral development, or Fowler’s theory of faith development. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your selected theory. Which stage of your selected theory, do you think that you are currently experiencing? Provide examples to reinforce your answer. • Leadership Theories. Briefly compare and contrast the leadership theories presented in Chapter 8 of your textbook. Select a historical figure (living or dead) who has been a leader. Use one of the theories to explain the successes and failures of the leader you selected. What type of leader does your historical figure exemplify? ABS 497 Week 3 DQ 2 Development Theories ABS 497 Week 4 DQ 1 Leadership Theories

  7. ABS 497 Course Material • Problems of Adolescence. Describe a major problem often experienced by adolescents (e.g., anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or delinquency). What are its likely causes? How is the problem typically treated? Identify alternative treatments that could be more effective. Rely on research evidence to support your views. • Macro Social Systems. Outline the three macro systems theories discussed in Chapter 12 of your textbook (functionalism, conflict theory, and interactionism). Describe how each of these perspectives would explain the macro system problem of crime and delinquency. Which approach do you support the most? Explain your reasoning. ABS 497 Week 4 DQ 2 Problems of Adolescence ABS 497 Week 5 DQ Macro Social Systems

  8. ABS 497 Course Material • Imagine that you are a researcher and are conducting a study to investigate a community problem. Using behavioral research principles, select a macro systems problem to investigate (there are many suggested in the textbook, e.g. domestic violence, homophobia, sexual abuse, delinquent gangs) and design a study to solve this community problem. • The purpose of your Final Paper is to solve this community problem.
