Review Feedback:
Reviewer’s Responses to Questions
Chair/Committee Approval
Have you reviewed this submission and approve it for methodological review?
Reviewer #1: Yes
——————–
Problem Statement:
Criteria – Identified a general problem in the discipline that supports the need to conduct the proposed research and described a specific research problem that the research will address, backed with recent sources. Briefly explained how the results of the study could be used to address the specific research problem.
Reviewer #2: ***Please forward this review to your chair as they are not cc’d on the auto-generated email. ***
In the problem statement, when justifying your dissertation research, the research you are citing should be within the last five years (update the 2007 and 2013 references).
Otherwise, general area is acceptable. You might find this podcast useful in terms of finding participants for your research: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1547113/9888401
——————–
Purpose of the Study:
Criteria – Stated a clear purpose. Identified the research method, design, population, and geographic location.
Reviewer #2: The purpose statement in your proposal should be one clear and concise paragraph. Here you have included content that belongs in chapter 3. Be sure you are following the Dissertation Handbook to a “T” when you write your proposal. Proposals that do not follow the outline set forth in the Handbook are returned for revision (be sure you are following the checklist in Appendix B meticulously). Being mindful of this will increase the odds of your proposal being accepted on the first submission.
Note: I noticed you were using the old LOI template. Please be sure you are using the correct Dissertation Handbook.
——————–
Importance of the Study:
Criteria – Described the importance of the proposed research, including how the study represents a unique approach to the problem, how the results may contribute to theory and /or practice in the field, and the implications of the research. Identified any knowledge gaps to be addressed by the proposed research.
Reviewer #2: Acceptable.
——————–
Method Overview:
Criteria – Provided brief overview of the research methodology: research method and research design, population and sample, instrumentation, and data collection and analysis approaches.
Reviewer #2: If you are going to be running focus groups of different organizations, I suggest you do this over zoom (and drop the reference to social distancing). Emails would not be appropriate and I don’t see how you could successfully run a focus group over the phone? These details need to be worked out in your proposal.
Be very clear, in your proposal if you are interviewing people from organizations who have done the transition successfully AND those who have not (and comparing)? Do you actually have a multiple case study? This is unclear in the LOI and your RQs will need some revision based on who, exactly, you are interviewing (see below).
Also, do not name a specific organization in your manuscriipt.
——————–
Research Questions/ Hypotheses:
Criteria – Presented specific research questions to be addressed, consistent with the proposed research method and design. If hypotheses are applicable, the stated hypotheses are clear and testable.
Reviewer #2: Based on the purpose, you are digging deep into successes and failures, which would suggest a multiple case study? Organizations that did this successfully AND those that had experiences of failures? If yes, then your RQs might be something like:
RQ1: Among organizations who successfully implemented…..what factors led to success?
RQ2: Among organizations who experienced difficulties in implementing….what factors created barriers to success?
RQ3: What would be best practices for the implementation of E-HR….
As written, I do not understand RQ2 in the LOI?
——————–
Alignment:
Criteria – Research problem is clearly articulated and aligns with the research purpose and method overview. If hypotheses are included, they align with the research questions. Hypotheses are testable.
Reviewer #2: Not met, but if you attend to the feedback above in your proposal and listen to this podcast before you write chapter one, gaining alignment should not be difficult: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1547113/7455607
——————–
Writing/APA:
Criteria – Written in the future tense. Minimal writing, grammar, and punctuation errors; in-text citations and references correspond to APA 6th edition.
Reviewer #2: Per APA – spell out acronyms the first time used – spell out in title and first time used in text.
Please ensure proposal is in APA 7 (proper indenting and level headings; citing references – Dahlbom et al., 2020; use of parentheses, etc.). Unlike LOIs, proposals not in APA 7 are not accepted.
——————–
RESULTS
Please select one.
Reviewer #2: Approved with Changes

Assignment Scenario Ms. Cheney was a case manager at an outpatient clinic that p

Assignment Scenario
Ms. Cheney was a case manager at an outpatient clinic that provided a variety of services. One of her clients was Ms. Rosalind, who was receiving services because of a recent divorce. Ms. Cheney had also experienced a divorce in her past and thought she had effectively dealt with that experience, but found herself identifying with many comments made by Ms. Rosalind.
Through their work together, the two women realized they shared many common interests. They often found themselves talking about these shared interests in their time together and eventually began meeting for coffee after their sessions. Ms. Rosalind soon suggested they begin spending additional time together socially, and Ms. Cheney agreed. Before long, they became fast friends, spending a significant amount of social time together on evenings and weekends, visiting clubs, going to movies, or visiting local restaurants.
After several months, the two had a falling out about a gentleman both women favored. Ms. Rosalind filed a complaint with the regulatory agency in her state about the relationship.
Assignment Directions
Please be sure to address all of the following in your assignment:
Introduce the case study and analyze the implications of the events in the scenario.
Investigate the harmful effects of such a relationship on all parties involved: Ms. Rosalind, the helping relationship, and Ms. Cheney.
Discuss both the social and emotional impacts of such a relationship as well as their effects on the treatment relationship. Use specific examples.
Discuss the likely outcome of Ms. Rosalind’s complaint if it was filed in your state.
Analyze strategies to minimize the likelihood of such a relationship arising in your practice.
I started the paper but please continue with what I have, thank you.

YOUR FOCAL AGENCY’S MISSION STATEMENTS Every human service agency has a Mission

YOUR FOCAL AGENCY’S MISSION STATEMENTS
Every human service agency has a Mission Statement that describes what the agency is supposed to accomplish and provides services that are intended to meet the needs of consumers in their communities. For this exercise, you will need to use information gathered from your Focal Agency interview. This exercise is intended to help you understand how agency mission statements relate to practice and provide practical information about a variety of agencies and services, as well as how a mission statement relates to the services the agency provides. You DO NOT need to respond to your classmates, however, all students must be sure to read what others have posted.
To complete this exercise you must first complete the module readings, then address the following:
What is the formal mission statement of your agency and what services are provided? Be specific and list all services offered.
Does the formal mission statement accurately represent the role the agency plays in your community? Is the mission statement an accurate and/or complete statement of the agency’s purpose?
Does the agency have any latent or unintended functions in the community? (The term “latent function” comes from sociology and means “unintended” or some times “largely unacknowledged”. For instance, an agency providing sheltered workshop services has a major mission of providing a livelihood for the disabled, but their latent mission may be to provide inexpensive labor for local industries.)
Does the agency have any dysfunctional aspects in the community as a whole? (The term “dysfunction” also comes from sociology and means either an “unintended negative consequence” or “a breakdown in a social system.” For example, in the illustration above, union members might see the sheltered workshop as a threat to full pay jobs and would consider this a dysfunction.)
NOTE FROM THE CLIENt:
I WOULD LIKE TO CHOOSE MASSACHUSETTS MENTOR FOR MY FOCAL AGENCY.
Thank you

This Discussion is also about the Focal Agency
M1 Discussion A – Systems Thinking and Linking to the External Environment

In our first discussion, we will examine the importance of agencies and a human service workers employing a systems thinking perspective in order to effectively meet the needs of consumers. Included in a systems thinking approach is the issue of establishing links to the external environment which may be considered part of a systems thinking perspective. Having examined these important concepts and issues from the Halley text and the media resources section of this module, we will now discuss what these concepts mean and how they might be viewed or not viewed in our focal agencies. Review the readings from this module and assess the following:
Do the advantages of systems thinking when delivering human services outweigh the limitations? Why or why not?
If you use an open systems thinking approach with consumers, what linkages to the external environment would you explore? Please provide specific examples.

M1 Discussion – Why Cultural Competence is Important A theme that reverberates

M1 Discussion – Why Cultural Competence is Important

A theme that reverberates throughout the few initial chapters is the importance of self-awareness. My hope is that you begin to understand the material in deeper and more personal ways. Watch the following videos and answer the questions below:
Cultural Diversity: The Sum of Our Parts by Hilda Mwangi (2017 video, 15 minutes in length, captioned)
Discussion Questions (2-3 paragraphs):
Consider how diversity enriches your life and expands your world view and experiences.
What makes you up and how do you want to share who you are with the class this semester and throughout your career in human services? Please do not divulge anything about yourself that will leave you feeling vulnerable. Instead, please follow the same format as Hilda did at the end of her Ted talk.
Discuss the ways this standard might be helpful in a real-world setting (create a vignette).
Reflecting on your own cultural identity and influences, discuss what benefits are gained when providers are culturally competent. Which standard do you think you still need to further develop?
Remember, if you have a current event that is relevant to an issue on diversity that you want to share with the class, post it in the What’s Happening in the News discussion area which is an ungraded, casual space for us to keep current and chat about what is literally happening today!
Discussion Participation Tips
Your initial post should be a reflective response that answers all questions, is adequately detailed, and cites outside sources when necessary to support your post. Typically, a post should be at least 250 words to allows you to answer and ask follow up questions, provide supplemental information, and to share views and experiences that draw us into an in-depth and meaningful conversation. Your first response should be posted by midweek and then you should return to respond to at least two other students during the remaining week(s) of the module. Be sure to use APA format to cite sources when putting forth the ideas, opinions, and facts of others.
FIRST DISCUSSION POST
Diversity in Human Services is a crucial aspect of life, as it brings a variety of perspectives and experiences to the table. We can learn more about the world and its cultures by engaging with people from different backgrounds. This semester, I want to share my story with the class and demonstrate how my experiences have shaped who I am today. I would like to share my strengths, weakness, and experiences. weather good or bad and just overall be an open book with others. As Hilda stated in her Ted talk, we must be able to share. I feel that being open about our lives can truly benefit others.
I was born and raised in the Bronx, NY. I was surrounded by a diverse community of people from all different backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities. This diversity has shaped my life positively and helped me appreciate the beauty of different cultures and perspectives. Once I got married, my husband joined the army where have been apart since 2010. As a military family, we move every 3- 4 years. The frequent moves can put a strain on family relationships, disrupt children’s education, and cause financial hardship. Military families must learn to adjust quickly and adapt to their new environment in order for them to maintain a sense of stability and normalcy. That said, I love sharing my stories and experiences with new wives and families coming into the army. As an SFRG leader, I am able to give advice, provide information about basic benefits the army has and just be a lending hand when help is needed. The beauty of the military community is that Military families come from all around the world and bring with them a unique mix of cultures and experiences.
Cultural competence also helps to create an environment where everyone feels valued and respected. When providers are culturally competent, they are better able to provide services that meet the needs of their clients. Being culturally competent creates an environment or space where people from diverse backgrounds will feel at ease and welcome. It sets a higher standard for healthcare.
SECOND DISCUSSION POST
The United States and the world are made up of various cultures, nationalities, perspectives, and points of view. When all these dissimilar beliefs are combined collectively, we create a melting pot of experiences and new adventures. Cultural competency enriches your life and expands your worldview and perspective of others. Learning more about other cultures and being aware of current events is often key in learning about various cultural groups’ points of view ( A component of culture is diversity. Diversity is an important part of life experiences as it drives creativity, in addition to how we view the world and each other.
Coming from an African American background I have had experiences where being a black woman in America proves complex due to intersectionality. However, learning about different cultural backgrounds and ethnicities has benefited me in my career by eliminating stereotypes of differing backgrounds and disabilities. If everyone was the same, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to learn from others and expand our minds creatively.
Benefits are gained when we can support individuals by cultivating cross-cultural awareness and communication. I have overcome barriers in my professional career by adjusting my mindset and being more open to the adversity of those having a different thought process. When you have a greater understanding of other cultures you will be able to interact with people from a wide range of backgrounds and you will increase your abilities to help others receive the highest level of support ( Garcia, 1998). When I think of who I am as a person in this culturally diverse world, I think of myself as a black woman, a friend, a sibling, empathic, and compassionate person.
