Chapter One – Reflection Paper

The first chapter of our text, Organizing Themes in Development, discussed several theories past and present about human development that are critical for a counselor to possess a solid, thorough understanding so they can draw upon this information to help solve problems and find solutions for the client. The theoretical lens that best fits with my view of human development would be the multidimensional / systems theories because there are so many different aspects that are influencing development and that are influenced by development. In particular, I felt Bronfenbrenner’s Bioecological Theory as well as Life Span Developmental Theory make the most sense. My initial thoughts on the major issues in development such as continuity and discontinuity are to side with continuity, in that development changes steadily and over a period of time versus rapid and only during the transitions between stages. In regard to nature and nurture, I feel that the book is accurate in stating on page 18 that they are interdependent upon one another versus separate and “against” one another. Regarding universality and specificity, Sternberg’s findings on page 21 shows that we must use a multi cultural approach to fit in with our multi cultural world that exists now. Finally, in regard to activity and passivity, I feel that the term the book used of bidirectionality on page 23 accurately to illustrate the “organism and the environment changing each other”. Using the bioecological lens to examine how development is impacted from childhood to adulthood is the discussion of biological supports and cultural supports and how we change and adapt across the lifespan. The book proposes that successful adaptation is benefited mostly by biological supports in the first part of life and then in changes later in life to cultural supports being more important…...

...Themes, Motifs & Symbols Themes Themes are the fundamental and often universal ideas explored in a literary work. The Limits of Knowledge As Ishmael tries, in the opening pages of Moby-Dick, to offer a simple collection of literary excerpts mentioning whales, he discovers that, throughout history, the whale has taken on an incredible multiplicity of meanings. Over the course of the novel, he makes use of nearly every discipline known to man in his attempts to understand the essential nature of the whale. Each of these systems of knowledge, however, including art, taxonomy, and phrenology, fails to give an adequate account. The multiplicity of approaches that Ishmael takes, coupled with his compulsive need to assert his authority as a narrator and the frequent references to the limits of observation (men cannot see the depths of the ocean, for example), suggest that human knowledge is always limited and insufficient. When it comes to Moby Dick himself, this limitation takes on allegorical significance. The ways of Moby Dick, like those of the Christian God, are unknowable to man, and thus trying to interpret them, as Ahab does, is inevitably futile and often fatal. The Deceptiveness of Fate In addition to highlighting many portentous or foreshadowing events, Ishmael’s narrative contains many references to fate, creating the impression that the Pequod’s doom is inevitable. Many of the sailors believe in prophecies, and some even claim the ability to foretell......

...Organizing Gene Frost Mgt/300 April 26, 2010 Kathy Maas Organizing Alpha Home is a nonprofit organization that assists women in recovering from chemical dependency as well as the fallout of emotional scarring, sexual abuse, and homelessness associated with addiction (Frost, 2010). Located in San Antonio, Texas the organization was founded by Hulene Dempsy in 1966. Alpha Home has grown from being able to house only 10 women to its current capacity of 47 (Alpha Home, 2009). To operate a nonprofit organization successfully requires relationships with similar organizations, knowledge of state regulations, and a keen empathy for the client. Understanding finance is also essential for the success of Alpha Home and often the facets of knowledge and finance are inseparable as they mutually exist. Alpha Home is successful in part because of its knowledge in developing relationships with other nonprofit organizations. Collaboration with other entities that provide services to the patient allows Alpha Home to conserve monies otherwise spent on similar services. Because the organization primarily treats indigent women, who in addition to substance abuse treatment require services such as mental health counseling, trauma counseling, HIV and AIDS testing with subsequent counseling and dental assistance. Partnerships with other agencies called a “memorandum of understanding” have proven to be necessary to meet the basic needs of the patients. According to Business......

Organizing Function of Management

...Organizing Function of Management According to Bateman & Snell (2009), Management is a world of action. It is a world that requires timely and appropriate action. It is a world not for the passive but for those who commit to positive accomplishments. Management requires the organization and coordination of the activities related to the running of an organization based on established policies. Historically, organizing involved creating an organization chart by identifying business functions, establishing reporting relationships, and having a personnel department that administered plans, programs, and paperwork. Now and in the future, effective managers will be using new forms of organizing and viewing their people as perhaps their most valuable resources. They will build organizations that are flexible and adaptive, particularly in response to competitive threats and customer needs. Progressive human resource practices that attract and retain the very best of a highly diverse population will be essential aspects of the successful company. Organizing activities include attracting people to the organization, specifying job responsibilities, grouping jobs into work units, marshalling and allocating resources, and creating conditions so that people and things work together to achieve maximum success (Bateman & Snell, 2009).

Reflection on Themes Related to Human Development in Social Context

...HAS121 Personal reflection on development Brittany Berry (5067285) The three concepts of self and identity, attachment and relationships and context and socialisation are interwoven concepts that greatly influence each other. A sense of self-concept and identity is created through attachment and relationships, which is influenced, by social context and socialisation. Context and socialisation also influences self-concept and identity. In looking at these three themes collectively, it is evident that your past interactions influence your future interactions which influence your self concept and how you want to be in the future. In order to explore these themes, I have focused on the core characteristics of my relationship with my mother and two different socialisation outcomes of my childhood, to fully explore the impact that these themes have on an individual. The first core characteristic of my relationship with my mother is using her as a secure base; to an infant, a secure base is the attachment figure that they use as a point of safety that allows them to engage and explore their surroundings. As a child, my mother was used as a secure base, particularly in social settings, as I would engage more with other people when I was with my mother. This has resulted in me being more comfortable exploring new and different situations when I am with someone that I am familiar with. This definitely influenced my socialisation, especially my trait of being assertive. This......

As you may have heard recently in the business press, he stepped back in as CEO to take over Dell after stepping down a few years ago.  Dell and his current turn-around efforts always focus on Staying Number One. Tackling Tough Issues Dell found out soon enough that necessity is the mother of invention. "I learned by doing and by making mistakes. And I got smart people to help," he says. Today Dell is a $57 billion company, with the leading market share in the United States. In March 2004, at age 39, Dell stepped down as CEO (he remained chairman) and continued to focus on research and technology. But soon there were signs of trouble. The company began losing market share because of competition from much more aggressive rivals such as Hewlett-Packard and Lenovo. Dell was also criticized for poor customer service. It's now facing investigations into its accounting practices by the SEC and a U.S. Attorney. This past January, the struggles forced Dell, now 42; to return to the company he founded, to tackle the issues head-on. In 48 hours, he'd put in a new management team. Of his marketing brainchild -- sell directly to the customer -- Dell told employees in an e-mail: "The Direct Model has been a revolution, but it is not a religion." He intends to improve it and look for new manufacturing and distribution models. The......

Community Organizing

...a. PRINCIPLES OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZING According to Borgos and Douglas, the key principles of contemporary CO are: 5.1 A participative culture CO organizations view participation as end in itself. Under the rubric of leadership development, they devote considerable time and resources to enlarging the skills, knowledge and responsibilities of their members. “Never do for others what they can do for themselves” is known as the iron rule of organization. 5.2 Inclusiveness CO groups are generally committed to developing membership and leadership from abroad spectrum of the community, with many expressly dedicated to fostering participation among groups that have been “absent from the table” including communities of colour, low income constituencies, immigrants, sexual minorities and youth. Working with marginalized groups demands a high level of skill, a frank acknowledgement of power disparities, and a major investment of time and effort. 5.3 Breadth of mission and vision In principle, every issue that affects the welfare of the community is within CO`s purview, where other civic institutions tend to get stuck on certain functions while losing sight of the community’s larger problems. In practice, strong (but by no means all) CO organizations have proven adept at integrating adverse set of issues and linking them to a larger vision of the common good. This is a holistic function that has been largely abandoned by political parties, churches, schools and other civic......
