An evaluation of the research evidence supporting this theory, with an example of a current study.
The appropriateness of this theory for diverse populations.

Interview someone currently in late adulthood. Allow the person you interview to

Interview someone currently in late adulthood. Allow the person you interview to share the story of their family, faith, career, and any other important memories with you. Note information about this person’s physical, cognitive, and socioemotional health. Be sure to address the following in your interview, as they will be key components of your presentation:
What major events seemed to shape the person’s development?
Does this person seem to express integrity or despair according to Erikson (Kail & Cavanaugh, 2019, p. 508-509)?
In what ways has this person coped with loss? What, if any, significant loss has he or she experienced?
What role has religion played in the person’s life?
Part 2: Reflective Presentation
To describe your observation or interview, create a PowerPoint presentation with voiceover. The voiceover should last five to seven minutes to accompany your slides.
The following components should be included in your presentation (8-10 slides, not including title slide or references):
Title slide.
Description of your observation or interview.
Avoid including any identifying information, such as names of people or location, but you can describe the nature of the setting or background information, for example, role of adults/staff involved (if any), activities occurring during observation, general location of interview.
Include any other details relevant to your analysis without revealing identity.
For instance, you could describe socioeconomic or cultural variables observed, religious or academic factors—e.g., “high-income area early childhood Montessori school,” “Christian elementary-level Sunday school class,” “interview with older male with self-reported agnostic worldview.”
Key takeaways, focusing particularly on the bulleted requirements in the Part 1 instructions.
Report your personal experiences, impressions, reactions, and any new perspectives you have gained because of your experience.
Connections to the text as well as connections to at least two scholarly sources/academic journal articles.
Reference slide (APA format).
To record your presentation, use Kaltura Capture. Please see the Technology Quick Guide on the course Dashboard to learn how to use this software.

Incorporating Family Systems Therapy
The philosophy and assumptions of family systems therapy differ from those that underlie individually-focused therapy. Knowledge of the ideas behind family systems thinking can be useful whether you plan to work with individuals, couples, or families. Provide some specific examples of how you might integrate the principles of systemic thinking into your counseling work. What are the benefits of doing so in family counseling?
Readings
Use your Theories of Counseling and Therapy text to read the following:
Chapter 9, “Shift Your Perspective: Constructivist Approaches,” pages 230–238 [Constructivist Theories].

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
III. Substance Abuse Potential (Case Scenario 3)
a) Assess the extent to which the case study data set meets the Daubert standard (psychometrics). In other words, what is the known or potential error rate?
Has the data been derived using reliable methods? Is the data valid and reliable with regard to the scientific method?
b) Evaluate the interview information contained in the scenario for its implications in the risk assessment and recommendations process. Substantiate your claims with specific research.
c) Evaluate the collateral information contained in the scenario for its implications in the risk assessment and recommendations process. Substantiate your claims with specific research.
d) Create a recommendations report for risk management based on the above elements. Justify your position with specific scholarly research.
e) Be sure your recommendations report aligns with the ethical guidelines of a professional psychology association. Note: You do not need to belong to an organization, but rather may view the ethical guidelines on the website of the organization of your choice
Use The Following Headers

Professional Disclosure Statement
Imagine that you are in private practice and are developing your promotional media (e.g. website, pamphlets, social media pages). publish a professional disclosure statement (1–2 paragraphs) that includes your worldview about the nature of people, how and why they do well or develop problems, and how counseling can assist them in working through challenges. Note that the ACA ethical code does not allow counselors to make any statements of guarantee—so be mindful about not including this in your statement! This statement should succinctly convey your personal model of counseling.
Readings
Use your Theories of Counseling and Therapy text to read the following:
Chapter 13, “Personalizing and Customizing Theory for Clients and Settings,” pages 341–365.
