Poverty has a strong influence on the lives of adults. When an adult lives in poverty, the effects extend beyond that individual to all those who depend on the adult. The problem of poverty in the life of an adult becomes a family or community problem, and few social problems are more impactful than poverty.
As a social worker, you are likely to address the needs of clients whose adverse circumstances are strongly influenced by poverty. Increasing your understanding of poverty and its influence will equip to you to better understand and assist your clients.
As you read this week’s resources, select the theory of poverty that most resonates with you to address in your Discussion post for this week.
By Day 3
Post a Discussion that includes the following:
- An explanation of how poverty impacts the experience of individuals in young and middle adulthood
- A statement as to whether you think poverty is the result of cultural or individual. characteristics; provide support for your position
- An answer to the following questions about the theory of poverty you selected:
- What aspects of this theory would be most suitable for your practice? Why?
- What aspects of this theory do you find problematic in terms of your knowledge of social work practice? Explain.
Throughout the course, you have been exposed to theories in cognitive psychology and have been asked to use those theories to solve problems and evaluate human cognition. Based on what you have learned, discuss the role you think cognitive psychology plays in understanding human behavior and interactions. How has this field advanced our understanding of human cognition and behavior? How has cognitive psychology helped us to create socially responsible strategies for improving cognition? What directions do you think the field will take next, and how will that research be important in solving contemporary problems or real-world issues?
- An explanation of object relations theory that presents the major beliefs and assumptions as well as core principles and components of this approach. Include how this perspective explains human psychological development and key interventions/approaches used by therapists employing this approach. (Approximately ¾-page)

Introduce this section of your essay by explaining what stage of treatment the client is in at this point and whether this is the beginning, middle, or end of this particular session. (Approximately ¾-page)
- Concluding paragraph that summarizes your critical assessment of object relations as a theory of human psychological development and basis for treatment. Discuss what you feel is relevant and helpful, what you see as it’s limitations or risks, and how you would rate this approach in relation to strengths-based and culturally sensitive and trauma-informed practice.

Consider all of the factors related to a person’s health and the workplace, how can you apply the concepts to your own life right now?
· Identify at least three strategies that you can implement today to increase your level of success in the situation you most identify with.
· Why do you think these strategies can work for you?
· What strategies could you utilize to increase someone else’s happiness level and assist them in increased success based on our content?
· What do you think are two of the most important factors that will be applicable to you and your current goals? What about to your future goals? Why or How?

Epigenetic influences mean that genetic expression can only be fully understood in the context of environment. Likewise, environmental influences may be quite different, depending on the particular genes that are present. The intertwined effects of experience and gene expression have implications far beyond the theoretical questions of how cells in the developing brain interact with one another. As society approaches the era when anyone might be able to have their entire genome decoded for a modest price, and scientists learn more about which genetic variants can increase or decrease the risk of mental health disorders, there is a greater need for understanding how genes can impact the human mind.
Examine the relationship between environment and gene expression, and consider ethical implications of genetic screening for medical and psychological disorders.
With these thoughts in mind:
Describe how environment and experience might impact gene expression. Explain why possessing a gene making one vulnerable to disease does not necessarily result in developing the disease. Finally, describe two ethical considerations when using genetic screening for medical and psychological disorders.
