Develop some hypotheses to explore, as well as listening to what the client says about himself

Hypotheses

Hector is a 35-year-old Hispanic male. Hector was seriously injured   in an auto accident 5 months ago. He spent 4 months in the hospital.   One leg and hip suffered permanent damage. He will probably always   need a cane and walk with a limp. He also has limited mobility in his   right arm and shoulder and cannot lift anything heavy.

Hector grew up in a family with a construction business. He has been   working in construction since high school. Social work at the rehab   hospital referred Hector to counseling because he is not adjusting   well to his injuries. He is very depressed and angry because he cannot   continue to work in his chosen occupation. Hector says, “What   use am I now? I am the man in the family. I should be strong. I need   to support the family. I don’t want my wife to work. I   don’t know what I am going to do to make a living.”

Hector still experiences severe pain in his shoulder and his leg. He   spends a lot of time watching TV and drinking. At this point, he is   not looking for work. His family has reached out to him but he avoids   interaction with his siblings and his parents because they remind him   of what he no longer can do. He feels shame when he is around family   members because of his disability. His relationship with his wife is   tense because he is often angry and withdrawn.

You are meeting with Hector for the first time and want to get the story.

As we meet with a new client we develop some hypotheses to   explore, as well as listening to what the client says about himself.

Write a 750-1,000-word paper addressing the following:

  1. What are some of primary issues that Hector is   addressing?
  2. What are some of Hector’s feelings?
  3. What are Hector’s behaviors and how are these impacting     his adjustment?
  4. How might Hector’s cultural heritage     be impacting his adjustment to his injury?
  5. What are some     beliefs that may be impacting Hector’s adjustment?
  6. How might Hector’s family background be impacting his   adjustment?
  7. What might be some issues that will need to be     addressed in counseling?
  8. What are the stages of change the     counselor will help Hector through? Provide a brief definition     of each stage.
  9. What steps can a counselor take to help     Hector explore his problems?
  10. Consider the following     counselor skills: eye contact, closed and open-ended questions,     paraphrasing and summarizing, reflection, body language, tone,     listening, empathy, genuineness, unconditional positive regard,     interpretation, tracking, reflecting emotion, active presence,     structuring sessions, encouragement, questioning and clarifying,     counselor self-awareness, tolerating intensity, validating,     challenging, multicultural awareness/acceptance, probing and     questioning, posture. Pick one skill and discuss how a counselor     should use this in their sessions with Hector.

Include at three scholarly references in your paper. At least two   resources should identify issues that need to be addressed when you   are working with someone who is being rehabilitated from a serious injury.

The Gospel Of Luke

The Gospel Of Luke

As you go through the resources for this section, you will gain a better understanding of the following aspects of the Gospel of Luke:

  • Origins of the Gospel:  where and when written, original language, etc.
  • Who was Luke writing to; what was his purpose.
  • Luke’s writing style so that you will begin to recognize a few differences/similarities between Luke and the other gospels.
  • How Luke portrays Jesus of Nazareth

Steps for achieving the objectives

Hint:  If you complete all of the reading by the end of Week 9, you will be well prepared for completing the assignments due in Week 10.  Remember:  Procrastination = STRESS!!!   :-/

Complete the following steps in the order listed and by the due dates listed below.

  1. Read Frontline: The Gospel of Luke: A Novel for Gentiles 
  2. Read The Gospel of Luke (including Introduction) in The Complete Gospels. (pages 121 – 184)
  3. Watch The story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15: 11-32) 
  4. Watch The Kingdom of Heaven is Here and Now (Luke 12) 

In the Gospel of Luke, we have some of the best loved teaching stories told by Jesus.  The interesting thing is that when you dig into some of these teachings stories – and you take into consideration the laws and customs of first-century Palestine – the meaning of the stories no longer seems like a slam dunk.  We begin to be puzzled by what Jesus could have meant – which is arguably JUST what Jesus intended to do with these stories!  Wisdom teachers historically try to get people to understand the idea that things are rarely black and white – that is, they may not be what they appear to be.

Jesus’ teaching stories and parables frequently upend or reverse traditional thinking.  Remember that Jesus said,  “And people will come from east and west, from north and south, and dine in God’s empire. Those who will be first are last, and those who will be last are first.”  (13:29-30)  The meaning of this verse appears to be this:  Be prepared to be surprised!  The empire of God is not what you think it is.  In fact, it may be the exact opposite (first will be last, and last will be first).  Also remember that Jesus says that God makes the sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.  There is no black and white thinking in God’s empire.

So, in looking at the parables, lets first make sure we are all on the same page regarding the meaning and function of parables.  Our textbook defines “parable” in this way:

A brief narrative or picture.  It is also a metaphor or simile drawn from nature or common life, arresting the hearer by its vividness or strangeness, and leaving the mind in sufficient doubt about its precise application to tease it into active thought.

This implies that the very purpose of the parables is to “arrest” (or put a halt to) automatic and conventional thinking – and to cause you to STOP and think again!  Dig deeper, think outside the box.  But, above all else, THINK!  Don’t let others tell you what you understand.

If we wish to truly understand any of the parables, it is especially important that we interpret them through the lens of the time and place in which they were told – first century Palestine.  But how can we do this since we do not live in first-century Palestine?  The answer is that we can do a bit of research into some of the historical information that we DO have from that time.

Writing Prompt:

1.  Please write your own interpretation of these two very short parables:

a.   The Parable of the Mustard Seed

b.   The Parable of Leaven

These parables are found back-to-back in Luke 13.  While you may think you understand exactly what Jesus is saying in these two little parables, think again!  Read this little essay on the perception of Mustard seed in first-century Palestine.  And then do a little of your own research on the meaning of leaven as it is used in the Bible.  Jesus is comparing the empire of God to both the mustard seed and leaven.  How does Jesus reverse conventional thinking with these two parables?

SPSS and Microsoft Word

As a current or future health care administration leader, how will you decide which statistical test is most appropriate for the goal of monitoring, tracking, or overseeing operations in your health services organization?

Each statistical test is dependent on a given set of research parameters and expectations. As you have examined throughout this course, understanding why and when to use each statistical test is necessary in conducting the tests for process control and comparison. Thus, chi-square tests are useful for table data, ANOVA for a single quantitative dependent variable and categorical independent variables, and ANOM for analysis of mean differences. Regression modeling is useful for determining the influence of independent variables on a quantitative dependent variable.

For this Assignment, review the resources for this week regarding chi-square, ANOVA, ANOM, and regression. Pay particular attention to the examples shown in the textbook.
