We made this inference due to our slope of each of the graphs. Given the mole ratios, the slope of our newer lab, comparing H2 to moles of Mg, should’ve been a slope of 1. But our first point skewed our results giving us an actual slop of 0.7, which was short from a more accurate result. And given our results last week, we concluded that our titration method was more accurate than our crystallization method due to the basically perfect slope of 2.0018 which is very close to the theoretical slope of 2. 5.
I will also discuss modalities, or the process that occurs when the brain receives information from our senses and how this represents itself internally. The senses I will be discussing for this essay are sight, hearing,smell and taste. The reason I am discussing modalities in relation to the effectiveness of a personalised induction is because I believe that it is part of the assessment process between therapist and client to ascertain which modality each individual feels most comfortable with. Further to this I will also discuss both the permissive and the authoritarian styles of hypnotic induction. This will include my belief that each person deserves to have a careful assessment or initial consultation from therapist to client and after careful consideration of the clients needs and preferences that the most appropriate screed would be used to benefit the client.
1009). This indicates the complexity in managing bipolar disorder. Studies also show that psychotherapy is necessary to supplement and optimize the effects of medication (Steinkuller and Rheineck 338). Cognitive behavioral therapy helps patients manage the disorder by replacing negative behaviors with positive ones. Education is important with this form of treatment so clients can recognize how different factors affect the course of the disease and what they can do to manage these factors (Steinkuller and Rheineck 342).

In order to make a case for culturally competent mental health services it is first necessary to discuss what is meant by the term cultural competence,
60 children were randomly assigned to one of the two groups. The experimental group received 10 sessions of guided and cognitive imagery training that were described as culturally relevant. The control group received no sessions. Self- esteem, the dependent variable, was measured using the Culture- Free Self-Esteem Inventory. The findings of the research was reported to have adequate reliability and validity.

3. What do you think of the results of this quiz? I was expecting a good score in the test results since I have found almost all the answers; however, I cannot say it did not impacted me the fact that I was not aware of things such as the difference between the median annual income for U.S. white men, 25 years or older, and the median annual incomes for Latin and Native American women. I have never taken the time to think about this. Another example is how it is possible to have 37 million people living in poverty in a country such the United States.
The Hyacinth Berry case study will be used throughout to identify and discuss the interconnections of values, ethics and legislation. The General Social Care (GSCC) and BASW offer the social work profession its value base. The message from reading their requirements is that values are a fundamental part of a competent social worker. There is also a clear need for both students and qualified workers to ‘identify and question their own values and prejudices and their implications for practice.’ The need for social workers to have respect for persons and their right to self determination still remains the key to practice. Complexities of the social work task relate partly to the worker having to negotiate the tension between these values and the dilemmas that decision making brings.
Over the years Eastern Asia has always come out on top for education. In international testing, East Asian countries have repeatedly scored the highest in both math and science. According to the graph in Norris’s essay, “U.S. Students Fare Badly in International Survey of Math Skill,” while more than thirty percent of students in Hong Kong were ranked in the top performance area, only ten percent of Americans were placed there (Norris 162). The staggering differences in scores greatly concerned the United States Department of Education, which led to a spur of reform such as the passing of government programs intent on improving American education around standardized testing.
