In this chapter, you learned about Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory.

What is the effect of timely mental health treatment on incarceration among those brought to care through the provision of expedited Medicaid?

Provide feedback to two of your classmates about their identified variables; explain why you agree with the variables, research question/s, and hypotheses stated.
Classmate#1
1. The research topic regards the impact of childhood trauma and how it relates to those with mental health issues in adulthood. “This study compared the prevalence of childhood trauma recorded in an individual’s clinical notes to those ascertained with a structured validated questionnaire.” (Rossiter, A., Byrne, F., Wota, A. P., Nisar, Z., Ofuafor, T., Murray, I., Byrne, C., & Hallahan, B. (2015). The article states that most research done in the past involved childhood sexual trauma, but has not studied other forms of childhood trauma in detail.
2. The dependent variable could be the answers to the questionnaire. The participants’ answers will vary, and they are being measured against the other answers to come to a conclusion. The independent variable could be the questionnaire itself, as the questions do not change based on other variables. “Our principal hypothesis was that the rates of disclosure ascertained using a structured questionnaire (CTQ) would be significantly higher than those reported by individuals attending their treating mental health team.” (Rossiter, A., Byrne, F., Wota, A. P., Nisar, Z., Ofuafor, T., Murray, I., Byrne, C., & Hallahan, B. (2015). The hypothesis also states that patients with personality disorders may have a higher rate of childhood trauma, and whether or not they disclose their trauma.

Brief Review of Research of the Research Topic
The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world. Much of the research shows that there are many more individuals incarcerated that have a diagnosed mental illness than there are from the general population that is incarcerated (Domino et al., 2019). When released from prison, people with serious mental illness face many challenges entering back into the community than those from the general population (Domino et al., 2019). Many of these individuals do not receive the mental health care or treatment that they need. In addition, they do not receive appropriate transition planning.
Identify/list the variables (independent and dependent), research question/s, and hypotheses
Independent
Timely mental health services among people with severe mental illness who were released from prison.
Dependent
Arrests, jail time, and any imprisonment.
Research Questions
What is the effect of timely mental health treatment on incarceration among those brought to care through the provision of expedited Medicaid?
What would be the average effect of providing timely mental health treatment to the full population of adults with severe mental illness released from prison?
Hypotheses
The timeliness of mental health services has a significant effect on rates of incarceration.
Explain how the variables, research question/s, and hypotheses align in the study
The above variables, research questions, and hypotheses relate to the study because the researchers want to know if timely mental health services after prison have any impact on future arrests, jail time, or imprisonment.
Explain the purpose of the variables, research question/s, and hypotheses in research
The degree to which the answer differs reveals information about the variability in the effect of treatment in this population. The researchers conducted several stratified analyses to examine how treatment may interact with criminal justice and social characteristics resulting in heterogeneous effects.

Thinking back to when your flashbulb memory event occurred. How confident are you about the accuracy of your responses about this event? Is the experience of your flashbulb memory event consistent with the characteristics and/or criticisms of flashbulb memories?

Disscuss two aspects of your own physical, psychological, and social development that have occurred.

For Essay #1 you need to reflect on your own development, across different domains. Disscuss two aspects of your own physical, psychological, and social development that have occurred. For these changes, discuss whether you think that the change was mainly driven by genetics, or the environment. Include a source to back up your belief. This essay should be between 3-5 pages long, and use at least 3 sources besides the textbook. It should also be written in APA format.
Make sure to address all parts of the prompt: physical, cognitive, and social change AND genetics versus environmental drives
Your essay should be built around the research you choose to include. For example, when writing about physical development, you can start a paragraph or section summarizing the source(s) you chose to use and then use your own experiences as support.
Do not use quotes of more than a few words. This is typically not done in APA format, unless you are including a block quote as an example of something.

What are the 4-5 most important (core) elements of your identity?

After viewing Dr. Fleming’s video and completing this week’s readings, create a visual illustration of the elements of your own identity. Your visual should include both your personal identities and your group/social identities and should be a comprehensive list of the various elements of your identity. How you choose the separate your core identities from those that are farther from the center is up to you. The illustration can be as plain or as colorful and creative as you like. If you create your illustration by hand, be sure to scan/photograph it and include it with your paper. Save your illustration as a jpeg and include it with your reflection paper. This section does not count toward your total word count for this assignment.

In addition to creating your identity illustration, address the following prompts:
Introduction
What are the 4-5 most important (core) elements of your identity?
Where and how were each of these aspects of your identity formed?
Think of the last time that one or more of these identities were threatened. (The focus here should be on a threat that came through the words or actions of another person or other people, not internal battles you might have experienced within yourself.)
How did you respond?
Northrup (1989) believes that conflicts that threaten or are perceived as threatening to our core concepts of self very often result in intractable conflicts. How does your example support or refute this belief?
In your opinion, why does identity have such a major impact on a person’s response to conflict? Support your view with information from the course, the textbooks, or other academic material.
In your opinion, how does your identity impact your personal conflict style that you discovered in Module 1?
Think about your personal reaction to conflict in light of what Shapiro called the repetition compulsion. Respond to the following questions adapted from p. 65:
What recurrently dysfunctional pattern(s) do you exhibit in conflict? (We all have them!)
At the moment when this pattern occurs, what is threatening your identity? Be specific and introspective in your explanation.
Which of the common issues listed on p. 66 lure you into the repetition compulsion? Is it something else? Why do you think these things pull you in?
Conflict is almost never one-sided, and the ability and willingness to own your own contribution to a conflict is indicative of an increasing level of emotional intelligence (which we will discuss in the next module). With that in mind, think back to a recent conflict in which you were personally involved. How did your own words and actions contribute to the escalation of this conflict? Provide specific evidence of words that you said and/or actions that you took that made the conflict more difficult for everyone involved.
Consider a long-standing conflict with which you are personally familiar. It should be one in which you are personally involved if possible, or at least one with which you are very familiar with the parties and the details. Synthesizing the material from Northrup and Shapiro’s section on the sacred and any other academic material you find appropriate, analyze the conflict in terms of its intractability and the sacred.
What do each of the parties hold sacred that is threatened by this conflict?
Is it possible for the parties to disentangle the sacred from the secular (Shapiro, pp. 105-107)? Explain.
Is this conflict intractable? Explain.
