Biopsychosocial paradigm, PIE Perspective, and Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Theory. Prior to completing this assignment, read Chapter 1 in the text, the articles listed, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. You have been asked to speak to an audience on the importance of the social factors affecting one’s experience of life. For this presentation, create an interesting and educational PowerPoint presentation, which contains a critical narrative that integrates aspects of the various theories with your individual sociocultural experiences.
To begin, create a PowerPoint presentation of four to five slides (excluding title and reference slides). Please see the following instructions for creating your content.
- Choose one of the following theories as your main focus and the lens through which you will compare the other two: the biopsychosocial paradigm, person in environment (PIE) perspective, and Bronfenbrenner's ecological theory.
- Research each theory fully so that you can effectively synthesize information relevant to these topics. Your presentation must include at least three scholarly sources that are cited in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. For help with finding scholarly resources for your presentation view the tutorial on searching for articles from the Ashford University Library.
- Provide an initial slide with a summary description of the theory you chose as your main focus. How does this theory show that your environment impacts your life? Please do not include anything you are uncomfortable sharing with your instructor.
- Provide secondary slides with summary descriptions of the other two theories. Be sure to compare each theory to the main theory used in your initial slide.
- Incorporate appropriate images, tables, graphs, or other visuals as necessary.
Please observe these general guidelines for your visual presentation. This link contains tips for creating effective slide presentations.
- Slides should be sequenced and organized clearly.
- Slides should show a clear and logical progression of ideas.
- Slides should include bullet points or short sentences, not dense paragraphs.
- Slides should include relevant visuals such as images, graphs, tables, data summaries, sound and/or animation that enhance understanding of concepts, ideas, and relationships.
- Slides should include appropriately formatted APA citations for all information taken from your resources.
- The presentation as a whole should include a consistent theme, format, and font to assist with readability.
Once you have completed your PowerPoint, create a screencast of your presentation using Screencast-O-Matic. Include a title for your presentation in the description box when you publish your screencast. Refer to the Screencast-O-Matic Quick-Start Guide for assistance.
Your presentation time has been limited by your host to between three and five minutes, so you will need to incorporate as many characteristics of an effective speaker as you can within this timeframe. These characteristics may include humor, storytelling, facts, pace, and volume. Since there is no video of the presenter (just the presentation itself), you will not have the benefit of body language, so be sure to create a convincing screencast.
