Hall, R. & Moore, D. (2006). Same kind of different as me. Nashville: Thomas Nelson, Inc.
After reading this book, critically think about the major character. The goal of this assignment is to evidence mastery of the course material by applying a theory that explains the behavior of the major character of the book. Special attention should be given to the impact that diversity has had on the major character. Students should analyze the character within a person-in-environment/ecological framework and discuss the relevance of the various theories studied in Human Behavior Social Environment I.
Questions that should be addressed in the written paper include, but not be limited to the following:
A. How does the character display typical issues of that stage of human development?
Freud-Stage of psychosexual development
Erickson-Stages of psychological crises
Kohlberg-Stage of moral development
Use any material from the text that describes your chosen theory, and compare it to the character. For example, discuss the importance of peer groups to an adolescent, discuss the effect of school competence to a child in middle school, or discuss the career crisis of a woman in mid-life who develops a disability, etc. What other conflicts are evident in the role (race, gender, ethnicity, age, class, color, disability, family structure, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation, religion) or norms of the character? Is the character’s behavior in conflict with group, cultural, or ethnic norms of his/her family or community system?
B. What is the nature of the interactions of the character with other systems (i.e. family, community, formal organizations and society)? How does this shape his/her development and functioning? What is the socioeconomic status of the family or character? How does that impact the character’s development? Are there patterns of abuse, neglect, and /or addiction on the part of the character or his/her family members/ How does that affect the character’s development? How does your chosen theory explain this?
C. Think of another theory that may offer explanation to the behavior of the client in your chosen book. How is this theory similar/different than your previous theory? Provide excerpts from text to help support your argument.
