   Variations in Drug Response

Using the knowledge you gained from the readings, evaluate how a typical drug, when orally administered, may be handled differently by these two patients: Ms. Jones is a 30-year-old female personal trainer that is 5’ 4” tall weighing 110lbs. She regularly drinks socially and sometimes more than a bit when she meets with her bi-weekly book club. Mr. Smith is a 65-year-old software tester who is 6’ tall and weighs 235lbs. He drinks only occasionally.

Assume no other significant medical history or issues with either patient. In your analysis, compare how the two patients will metabolize the drug considering weight, gender, distribution of body water and body fat, age, metabolic state, and alcohol use. Explain how these factors impact the pharmacokinetics of the drug (half-life, dosage, route of administration, and elimination of the drug). Evaluate the impact on the risk-benefits analysis of the use of this drug.

Observational Activity: Life Review

 Topic:

Observational Activity: Life Review

Description

Observational Activity: Life Review

For the following activity, you will do an interview/observation of a person in late adulthood (60+ years old). After completing the interview, you will write an essay (five paragraph minimum) summarizing your findings. You will address all areas outlined below.

As people enter the later years of life, they usually engage in a process called life review. This involves organizing one’s memories and reflecting on the significant actions and developmental milestones that have shaped one’s life. It is through the life review that people attempt to gain a final understanding of themselves and the world around them. You will choose an older adult for an in-depth, life-review interview and ask the person the following questions.

1. Who were the most important people that contributed to your development, both as a child and as an adult? In what ways were they important to you?

2. What events or developmental milestones were particularly significant in your life? Why?

3. How has aging affected you physically, psychologically, and socially?

4. How do you feel about your life? Has it been satisfactory? In what areas have you been most satisfied? Least satisfied?

5. How often do you think about your eventual death? What thoughts go through your mind when you think about death?

Based on developmental stages/theories discussed in the textbook, you will then summarize your findings and assess the interviewee’s current life stage.

In your essay’s conclusion, be sure the answer the following questions: What did you learn by completing this activity? How will you use this information in your career or personally?

Assignment 1: Applying theory to gender development

 

There are several perspectives on how humans develop gender. Older perspectives that emphasized biological differences between males and females have given way to newer perspectives that account for the roles of both biology (e.g., hormones) and environment. When psychologists refer to the environment, they mean the social factors or socialization agents such as peers, family, school, and media, through which a person comes to understand and develop a gender identity. Although many perspectives are in agreement that socialization agents influence gender development, they differ in their conceptualizations of how, why, and to what degree this occurs.

These perspectives have been studied and formulated into theories. Freud led the way with psychoanalytic theories of gender development, suggesting early unconscious drives were the foundation of gender development. Social learning theories are founded in reinforcement and observational models suggesting that gender development is learned. Cognitive development theories suggest that gender differences develop by observation of gender consistencies, gender schemata, or gender scripts within a culture. Whatever the theory, gender roles differ in different cultures.

In this Assignment, you will analyze the gender development of an individual through the lenses of two gender development theories. You will also evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two theories in explaining the individual’s development.

To prepare Consider the key socialization agents (culture, family, school, peers, media, or other societal influences) that influence gender development. Consider the theories presented in the Learning Resources (biosocial theories, psychoanalytic theories, social learning theory, and gender-schema theory) and select two to use for this Assignment. Interview an individual you know or complete a self-analysis regarding the key socialization agents (influences) in this person’s or your life regarding gender development. Use the questions in the document “Gender Analysis Questions” in this week’s Learning Resources to guide your interview or self-analysis.

Write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you do the following: Briefly introduce the individual you interviewed (or yourself), including the person’s gender identity. Summarize the key gender development socialization agents for this individual. Identify the two theories you selected, and briefly summarize how each would explain the individual’s gender development. Explain the relative strengths and weaknesses of each theory in explaining the gender development of the individual.

Please act as if I’m interviewing you when writing this assignment.
