She has three close friends whom she sees regularly.

You are working with a 65-year-old female client, Mary, who has been coming to see you for six months for grief and loss issues because she lost her sibling and her brother within a month of each other about a year ago. She has a daughter and a son who are both married and she has four grandchildren. Her children live a few hours away from her. She has three close friends whom she sees regularly. Mary has just been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer and has stated that, although she is okay to undergo treatment that may extend her life, she does not want to. She stated that she just wants to end her suffering as quickly as possible because there is no hope of getting better.
Let’s debate this case study. If your last name begins with A-L you will discuss and argue for duty to protect/warn in this case. If your last name begins with M-Z you will discuss and argue against duty to warn/protect in this case. Consider any specific ethics and state statutes that pertain to this scenario and your discussion. What specific steps might you take in this case depending on what side of the debate you are on?

The following guide may be used to organize your presentation:

Develop a 10-15 slide presentation with speaker’s notes on a diversity topic of your choice that could ultimately be used as a basis for a staff development session. Diversity training has been a part of U.S. organizational life since the passage of Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion. Early diversity training dealt with improving race relations, addressing racism and anti-Semitism. The 1970s diversity training focused primarily on affirmative action and compliance.
In the 1980s, much diversity training centered on increasing cultural sensitivity and fostering respect for differences, emphasizing gender and race. Today, diversity training encompasses a wide range of groups (including white men) and is derived from social justice and inclusion approaches that value differences, encourage treating everyone with respect, and creating fair and equitable work and school environments.
While this assessment is not designed to be a diversity training, it lays the foundation for an evidence-based staff development activity that could be part of a larger training initiative.
Instructions
You may determine the work setting for your presentation, such as educational institutions, businesses, nonprofit organizations, hospitals, or mental health care facilities. After selecting the presentation setting, choose your topic that may include any area covered in this course.
Sample topics:
Racial stereotypes and racism (select one racial or ethnic group).
Immigration.
Religion and spirituality.
Gender stereotypes and sexism.
Sexual orientation and heterosexism.
Age stereotypes and ageism.
Mental disabilities.
Physical disabilities.
Other topic of your choice related to culture, ethnicity, and diversity.
Note: if you choose this option, you must get instructor approval.
Using the course readings and other scholarly literature as a basis, develop a presentation on the topic of your choice using PowerPoint, Prezi, or other courseroom-compatible format as follows:
Part 1
Provide an overview of the topic that includes areas that will be covered in the presentation, a brief description of the population or social group you chose, and key definitions and terms.
Part 2
The body of the presentation should include the following:
Strengths and other positive aspects of being a member of the social group or population.
Challenges faced by members of this group. Issues related to categorization and stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, and social stigma should be incorporated.
Part 3
Conclude with possible solutions to help combat the challenges faced and/or strategies to support the social group or population.
The following guide may be used to organize your presentation:
Slide 1: Title (APA style).
Slide 2: Presentation overview/outline.
Slides 3 and 4: Description of population or social group.
Slides 5 and 6: Definitions and terms.

You must include expanded details that elaborate on the slides using the notes section of the slide presentation. Please remember to use course readings and other scholarly sources to support your work.
Example assessment: You may use the Diversity Presentation Example [PPTX] to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.
Additional Requirements
Include a minimum of three scholarly resources published within the last five years.
Include presenter’s notes for each content slide.
Follow APA style and formatting guidelines on your references slide.

Part II – Classical Conditioning
Try this simple experiment on Pavlovian or classical conditioning after reading about Pavlovian conditioning in Chapter 3 of your book.
You will need a bell (a set of keys works too :-), a hand held mirror, and a room that becomes completely dark when the light is turned off. Hold the bell while standing in the room near the light switch. Once in position, ring the bell and then immediately turn off the light. Wait in total darkness for 15 seconds, then turn the light on. Wait another 15 seconds with the light on then ring the bell and immediately turn the light off again, waiting another 15 seconds in the dark.
Repeat this procedure 20 to 30 times making sure that in each case the bell is rung immediately before the light is turned off. Now, with the light on, watch your eyes closely in the mirror and then ring the bell. Your pupils should dilate slightly even without a change in light!
Write a brief 1-2 page reaction paper of this experiment covering the following items:
Share your experience with this experiment.
Identify the Neutral Stimulus (NS), the Unconditioned Stimulus (US), the Unconditioned Response (UR), the Conditioned Stimulus (CS), and the Conditioned Response (CR). (You must identify these 5 elements to receive full credit.)
Identify 2-3 real-life examples of classical conditioning that you are aware of in your life.
