Assignment 1: Micro-Assignment Bio & Psych
In this assignment, you will become the “client” in order to apply parts of the framework that we reviewed this week and last: Biological and Psychological.
Imagine that you are the client and will bring forth a topic to apply the weekly readings. The list below may be used to help you select a primary focus. Examples that can be used for this self-analysis project:
- Stress management
- Organizational skills
- Sleep issue
- Work-Life Balance
- Family dynamics in relationship
- Weight control
If you have a topic that is not on this list, then please reach out to your primary instructor for approval.
** Please be mindful not to over-disclose. Do not select anything that personally elicits strong emotional responsiveness, such as addiction, substance abuse, significant grief/loss, trauma (i.e., violent incidents, abuse, sexual assault, etc). **
- What would you identify as biological aspects of the primary focus selected above?
- Identify at least 3 biological factors.
- What would you identify as psychological considerations?
- Identify at least 3 psychological factors.
- Support your assessment with literature from your readings.
This paper must include a title page and reference page. Introduce the primary focus in a concise presentation in which you will apply the framework. There should be one page of APA style (i.e., double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 pt font) dedicated to the biological discussion and 1 page dedicated to the psychological discussion. Please do not cut yourself short by not fully exploring the full page requirement.
