Question description

For this Assignment, you will write about LeRoy Karas’ ecomap that you submitted in Unit 8. In your paper, you will summarize and evaluate the influences of the environment on LeRoy’s behavior.

Include the following in complete sentences based on the eco-map you submitted on LeRoy Karas:

  1. For your introduction, provide a one paragraph summary about LeRoy. Give a brief history of his life.

  2. For your second paragraph, based on your ecomap of LeRoy, explain the strongest influences on his behavior.

  3. In your third paragraph explain how LeRoy's ecomap might change as he transitions from middle adulthood to late adulthood. Include information about either Levinson's life structure theory or Erik Erikson's theory of psychosocial development to explain the transitions LeRoy is experiencing.

  4. Your fourth paragraph should be about your own prejudices or biases. Answer the following questions in paragraph four:

    • If you were working with LeRoy, do you think you would have any prejudices or biases toward any of the systems affecting his behavior?

    • If so, what would they be and how would you handle them?

    • What stereotypes and misconceptions would you have to consider? (Be sure to use the information on ethics from the National Organization of Human Services and refer to it in your answer.)

  5. In your fifth and concluding paragraph, explain what you might learn in terms of your own behavior from working with LeRoy or another client similar to him. What attitudes or behaviors often change within you as a result of working with people and helping others?

Your Assignment should include a cover page and a final reference page where you cite your course text, the National Organization for Human Services website, and any other sources you choose to include in the paper. The only two required sources are your text and the NOHS website.

Your paper should be 5 complete paragraphs, resulting in approximately 2–4 pages of text in addition to the cover page and the final reference page. It also should be free of spelling and grammatical errors. Your Assignment should be double-spaced, using a 12 point, Times New Roman font.

You also may use sources from the Kaplan Library or credible internet sites, but the text is your primary source of support. Your opinions also are valued, but it is important to keep in mind that your main objective in completing this project is to illustrate your knowledge of the course material.

Citing Sources

It is important to always attribute credit to the proper sources when relying on the text, articles, websites, or other sources. You must credit your work when you:

  • Summarize concepts and theories that you learned in the text, articles, or internet sources.

  • Use others' ideas, theories, and concepts in constructing Discussion topic responses or completing Assignments.

  • Use direct quotes in the context of your paper (when quoting directly, you must use quotation marks).

Your Assignment must be your original work; plagiarism will not be tolerated. Be sure to review the Syllabus in terms of what constitutes plagiarism.
