an ethical dilemma and cultural conflict


Use the Combined Case Study Template [PPTX] to complete the Combined Case Study assessment. Do not submit a paper for this assessment. Papers will not be graded.

· Create a case involving an ethical dilemma and cultural conflict(s) that could occur in your psychology specialization. It is recommended that you base the case study for this assessment on the one you developed in Assessment 2, with revisions in response to the feedback you received from faculty.

However, you may create an entirely new case study that meets the criteria for this assessment.

Again, while your case will be fictional, it must be entirely believable and realistic based on your psychology specialization.

· Download and use the Combined Case Study Template PowerPoint linked above. You will complete this assessment by replacing all language that is enclosed with brackets […] in the PowerPoint with your own words.

As in the previous assessments, you may enhance the design of the presentation to make it more effective. Again, links to tips for using PowerPoint and designing effective presentations are provided in the PowerPoint Resources activity in this assessment.

The Presentation

1. Title slide: On the first slide of the PowerPoint:

. Enter a descriptive title of approximately 5–15 words that concisely communicates the heart of the case study. It should stir interest while maintaining professional decorum.

. Enter your name, and a job title and organization that would fit with your case study.

· Case Study Overview slides: Provide the briefest possible narrative description of the professional conflict in the case. Additional supporting details and references can be added on the notes section of the slide. The overview should include:

. The professional setting of the case, based on your psychology specialization.

. The relationship that exists between you and the other individual(s), agency/business, or institution involved. Some possible examples may be:

. Professor—Student.

. Therapist—Patient.

. Colleague—Colleague.

. Consultant—Business.

. Clinical Supervisor—Student intern.

. Administrative Supervisor—Employee.

· A very brief summation of an ethical dilemma involving cultural conflicts.

· Cultural Differences slides: On the table provided, list side by side the main cultural identities from the Hays model, relevant to the conflict in the case, of yourself and another individual, agency/business, or institution in the case.

· If more than one individual, agency/business, or institution is involved in the case, make a copy of this slide for each one, to compare yourself to all others involved.

· In the notes section:

. Identify common concerns with each cultural identity. Be careful to avoid using stereotypes.

. Analyze how cultural differences contributed to the conflict in this case.

· Relevant Biases: Identify two relevant biases you have or had, and at least one strategy for improving your cultural competency around each of those biases.

· Note: This slide may be reused from Assessment 2, but if you received suggestions for improving it, be sure to revise it.

· Ethical Concerns slides: Bullet point the three or more ethical concerns in the case and apply one or more ethical standards to each concern. Additional supporting details and references can be added in the notes section.

· Comparison of Ethical Theories slides: In the first row of the table provided, enter the names of two ethical theories that you think would be the most appropriate for the situations in the case.

In the following rows, enter comparisons of relevant features of the two theories. In the notes section, evaluate which theory provides a more functional framework for your case and explain why.

(Note that ethical theories and ethical decision-making models are two different things. Please make sure that you are applying, comparing, and contrasting two ethical theories).
