Some students drop out of JROTC after one year or change their schedules within the first few weeks of the school year when they realize that the curriculum is both physically and mentally demanding in many ways. They are often unprepared for that and instead labor under the misguided impression that high school will be very easy for them, and that it should be easy.

For the students that stay in the program, though, the response is usually very good and the performance is very high. This indicates that the program works well overall for the students that have an interest in this type of curriculum. However, there are improvements that could be made to the JROTC program that would be helpful to many students. One of these is that many students go into the program not really sure of what they are getting themselves into and when this takes…… [Read More]

Then, it can also be exemplified in that, however only few in the beginning, the day care center has the opportunity to create additional jobs within the community, hiring tutors and teachers, physical education instructors and maintenance personnel.

To achieve the above established desiderates, a wide set of skills and aptitudes are required from both myself and the staff members. Relative to the skills directly related to my role in the success of the day care center, it could be said that I need the following aptitudes:

My work as a research assistant in a cognitive psychology lab added to my theoretical knowledge by giving me practical experience in encoding and analyzing data. This experience provided me with the opportunity to use analytical tests and interpret statistical data. Bookkeeping of participants' demographic information also further developed my organizational skills. Having been a research assistant, I have gained a reasonable understanding of research design and the statistics needed to conduct research. For my senior major project, I wrote a research paper on an empirical study that investigated the role of change detection in studies of visual attention in the field of cognitive psychology. This paper was awarded the Sharon Borine award for the best major project in Psychology because of its successful presentation of research and adherence to American Psychology Association guidelines.

These three seminal perspectives may possess a lot of similarities, yet each of them has contributed novel ideas that are consistent with its theoretical underpinnings. In many of the substance abuse treatment arenas, the significant aspects of all these three approaches are blended to provide for a cognitive-behavioral model that gives the best result in terms of all the other therapies. (Brief Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy)

Three theorists who have influenced the behaviorist theories are:

1. Watson J.B. - One of the originators of behaviorism and a proponent of the reductionist approach to the study of human behavior.

2. Skinner B.F. - He was the one most responsible for the spread of the behaviorist philosophy.

3. Wolpe, Joseph. The method of systematic desensitization to deal with fear was created by him. (Theories and Theorists)

According to the Kohlberg theory, the post-conventional level is when a person develops social contract orientation and becomes principled. I believe I felt that I owed society an obligation to work and try to make it better, so I sought public welfare work (Fowler, p. 56).

Eventually, a better job opportunity came to me in the form of a state job in the Department of Youth and Family Services, so I decided to leave the school system. I transferred from my city job and was able work in my chosen field. Between working there and at Families Matter, New Jersey, I learned quite a bit. I would spend hours with parents who did not have the skills to help themselves and children who were in crisis. This motivated me even more to finish my bachelor's degree.

My ISTJ nature shows that I am internally focused. In order to improve my interpersonal skills by developing the aforementioned traits, I will need to shift my focus to the external world. I will need to actively consider the view points of my co-workers rather than imposing my own ideas on them (Thompson, 2006).

There are a few different options to me for developing these skills in the next 180 days. I can focus on the functional aspects of these skills. This would be easy to learn because I could utilize my abilities in vision development and planning to keep these skills at the forefront of my mind. The skills could then be learned by treating them as any other technical skill. Another option would place the learning emphasis on the underlying attitude of selflessness and focus on others. As the attitude develops, the functional skills will naturally flow from…… [Read More]

Similar to Gestalt therapy, I also did not incorporate existentialist thinking into my theory.

However, similar to Jungian analytical psychology and Gestalt therapy, I view this type of therapy as very philosophical in its' nature and application. Therapy methods that are very philosophical in their application do not appeal to me because they do not seem to adequately address the "real-life" problems, and instead seek vague answers that can be subject to many different kinds of interpretation. Existential therapists seek to find whether the major questions of our existence can be answered. As a result of my disagreeance with this type of therapy, I have not modeled by theory after existential therapy.

Another reason why I have not modeled my theory on existentialism is because most often such theorists will claim a spiritual or religious basis for their optimism.

Likewise, Callista Roy's Adaptation Model of Nursing provides a contextual bridge between the internal physiological determinants of patient health and the crucial aspects of external environment that typically influence patient health and (especially) patient perceptions and attitudes about health and medical or nursing interventions. Together, application of the principles promoted by Watson's Caring Model and by Roy's Adaptation Model of nursing complement my clinical training in a manner that I believe enables me to contribute the most to my patients, to my profession, and to myself as a nurse.

Skepticism may be the proper mind-set with which to enter into a coaching relationship, but you have to want to be coached. I didn't. I was just some jerk trying to play along. The group felt it.

After four years of living here in the United States, and in Miami in particular, I feel that I am ready to contribute fully to the community. Research into the needs of the community leads me to nursing as a choice of a new career. There seems to be a shortage in the nursing field and I would like to be one of those to help fill that need. Changing from a career as a lawyer to a nurse may seem like a drastic change, but for me it is more natural than it appears. Both professions include helping people. I have no doubt that my caring nature and my love for helping people will be of asset to the nursing profession. Combining my legal training and expertise with the nursing practice will give me more of an advantage to help improve the health system.

I assisted with feeding duties and helped the residents get involved in physical activities, such as stretching limbs or a simple walk around the garden.

Personal Theory of Psychological Development

It may even be impossible to retroactively identify every influence on the development of personality. However, contemporary psychologists already understand the general patterns in which major areas of psychological influence exert themselves on the individual.

More often than not, more than one avenue of psychological inquiry is helpful. Personality development in the typical patient may have been primarily influenced by Freudian issues in infancy and subsequent specific experiences in middle childhood, and secondarily by a particular negative experience or period of conflict in the nuclear family. Therefore, in the practical sense, measuring personality development means retroactively identifying the conceptually recognized potential influences along the full spectrum of psychological approaches. By matching behavioral (and other outwardly observable) manifestations of personality formation to the identifiable potential influences, it is often possible to pinpoint the most likely route of origin for major observable elements of personality.

Personal Philosophy of Nursing Education


Malcolm Knowles' theory of adult education, termed Andragogy undergirds my personal philosophy of nursing education. The term Andragogy is used to highlight the unique needs of adult learning from traditional learning, which is usually aimed at children, as evidenced by the term pedagogy, the "leading of children." Knowles idea's recognizes that our fundamental ideas regarding education are influenced by its application to children. This situation makes many principles of education inapplicable or unsuited to the education of adults.

Knowles theory of adult education can be expressed in six principles. 1) Adults need to know why they are learning something; 2) Experience provides the basis for learning activities; 3) Adults should develop a sense of ownership over their education through involvement in the planning of their coursework and evaluation; 4) Adults seek knowledge which bears directly on their professional lives; 5) Adult learning is problem-centered…… [Read More]

Personal and Professional Accountability

Personal Growth and Development

The concept of professional nurse accountability has been defined by professional nursing bodies and nurse education credentialing bodies as an essential factor underpinning professional practice. As a nurse, I realize this fact and take accountability and responsibility for whatever behavior and actions exhibited, on my part, at the workplace. Moreover, I have understood the need to appraise myself, strive to improve my practice, and continuously fulfill learning outcomes I determine. Lastly, I attempt to sustain my physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing for being able to practice effectively (CRNBC, 2017).

Ethical Conduct and Practice

In this profession, I have acquired skills to operate within the boundaries of my personal competence levels, the legally accepted practice scope, and every applicable law. Acting to support safe, ethical and proper patient care comes under my personal and professional nursing accountability as well (CRNBC, 2017).

My personal leadership development plan is based my intention to use transformational leadership theory to promote healthcare-eldercare advocacy in my organizational behavior. As Shanks and Buchbinder (2012) show, “leadership development includes both formal and informal efforts” (p. 279). Completing courses online or at a university are formal ways to develop one’s leadership skills, while informal efforts can include anything from mentoring others to coaching and guiding staff members in new tasks or cross-discipline work. No matter the method employed, a personal leadership development plan should utilize a strategy for maximizing leadership effectiveness by implementing an appropriate theoretical support for the plan, recognizing one’s leadership strengths, correcting one’s leadership weaknesses, and identifying action items that will help close gaps between being the leader one is now and being the leader one seeks to become.

training and supervision of students and new practitioners is a process that involves mental health counselors who play an integral role ranging from teaching clinical skills in educational settings to offering on-site supervision. Therefore, supervision is an important aspect of mental health practice that involves various techniques like psychotherapy-driven supervision. Psychotherapy-driven supervision is a process that is demonstrated in three theoretical approaches i.e. cognitive-behavioral, humanistic-relationship, and solution-focused models. This process promotes the combination of best-practices in psychotherapy-based approaches and social role-based techniques of supervision. Therefore, this approach integrates two components i.e. counseling theory and practice with role-oriented supervision models. According to Pearson (2006), the combination of these two elements enables supervisors to model and provide training on psychotherapeutic practices in a manner that meets the unique learning requirements of new counselors (p.250).

Personal Philosophy of Nursing

Nursing is, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, one of the 'hottest' or most desirable to enter of all professions today because of the increasing cost of health care, because of the managed health care system's extraction of doctor's time and personal resources, and the aging of the American population as a whole. More individuals will need personal care, advice on taking prescriptions and managing health and illness, and greater attention than physicians can provide. But despite this supposed national health care trend, the definition of nursing remains the same. It is not a definition that every personality can accommodate. To be a nurse, one must put an individual and human face upon medicine for the individual patient, tailoring the doctor's instructions and requests for the individual in a flexible fashion that is still perfectly consistent with an accurate and high standard of care.

Key ethical beliefs and values about one's self and others

I am known as a socially aware leader, one who believes that the needs of society transcend the needs of any one person -- including myself. My idealism is also manifest in my style as a socially aware leader in that I believe the welfare of others, even when that may conflict with my own personal and economic self-interest, is more important. Of course, the greatest test of an idealistic, socially aware leader is when the leader's business or organizational goal conflicts with that of society. How to cope, for example, with working for an organization that causes environmental harm when one is an environmentalist?

Fortunately, I have never had to work with a company that placed me in such an uncomfortable ethical bind. I have tried to select organizations with whom I agree with, in terms of their overall…… [Read More]

Nursing Personal Statement

It took me a while to understand what a seizure really was. To my five-year-old mind it just meant that Faye, my aunt, writhed and convulsed spastically for several minutes at a time. It also meant that she might die, my mom told me, and I had to look out for Faye and make sure she didn't fall. I believe that I became a nurse when I was five years old, caring for my aunt during her illness and helping her to life a fulfilling life in spite of it.

I, too, have lived a fulfilling life in spite of a potentially dangerous disease. When I was diagnosed with severe curvature of the spine, scoliosis, at the age of fifteen I faced a surgical procedure that could have left me completely paralyzed.

Personal Experience With Animal Consciousness

Scientifically, this might not really be 'thought' as it is likely that researchers would say it is simply rote memorization and a repeat behavior that has taught this animal what specific sounds coming from his owner require of him so that he can react a certain way. By so doing, he knows that there is an end result - a reward - that he will receive, and so he goes through the memorized process again. However, it can be argued that memorization is not the only thing that animals are capable of (Wynne, 2004). Another case of a dog 'thinking' about what he was doing came from a recent house fire that made the news. This particular dog was a service dog, and it rescued its owner from a burning house. After the person was rescued, the dog went back into the still-burning house in an attempt to rescue the…… [Read More]

Personal Experience that Changed My Life

Years ago, when I first came to the United States, I knew instantly that this trip would change my life forever. I was visiting my father in Manhattan, and was introduced to my American family for the first time. The experience of seeing them in this wonderful city was magical. I had always wanted to visit the United States and finally, here I was in the business capital, not only of the United States, but of the western world. The impact would stay with me long after my visit was over, and would shape my thinking in the years to come.

Training and Development

Words: 1327 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 69330219


Training can play an important role in organizational development. Organizational development is understood to be a "planned, organization wide effort to increase organizational effectiveness" (ODN, 2014). Training naturally plays a critical role in this process. De Silva (1997) defines training as "transferring information and knowledge" and equipping employees to put this knowledge into practice. Training therefore is a means of increasing the organization's total knowledge in order to increase its capabilities.

For a training program to be effective in improving organizational development, it needs to be focused on specific objectives that pertain to the organization's overall mission. By creating an alignment between the needs of the organization, through a skills assessment for example, a training program can be developed to increase the organization's capabilities in areas that are the most important. Knowledge and capability are of course only part of the equation -- by increasing organizational knowledge the potential…… [Read More]

Training & Development

Coaching is becoming a key tool in helping executives and managers to grow and succeed. With the cost of corporate coaching increasing, the investment stakes can be high and a return on investment is increasingly valued by organizations. And organizations are getting better at coaching and learning how to benefit. One of the most important factors to the success of a coaching program happens before coaching begins: formal assessments. These can uncover areas of strength and weakness, drive an employee's motivation to change, and provide a roadmap for individual development. Assessment is also extremely useful in the growing trend of using in-house coaching by the organization's own managers or HR staff. The trend is to upgrade the skill level of the managers themselves so they can do this for people (For success with corporate coaching, begin with assessment, 2006).

Her boyfriend gave her worthy advice: keep this to yourself because if your boss is found to be accepting kickbacks, and this revelation results in his removal from the company, her unit may well be disbanded, or otherwise affected in a way unfriendly to existing employees. The fact that Valerie's work visa situation -- she did not have a "green card" -- was largely dependent on the good will and fairness of those in supervisory positions in her company put her in a tight spot.

Training needs analysis (TNA) is defined by Mabey and Salman (1995:158) as a "process of collecting data which allows an organization to identify and compare its actual level with its desired level of performance." The authors also indicate that this performance could be interpreted as meaning the competencies and attitude necessary for the staff to do the job effectively. Moreover, Armstrong (1996:536) states that "training needs assessment is partly concerned with finding the gap between what is happening and what should happen.. This is what has to be filled by training ." Figure (1.1) depicts this gap.

One of the most significant experiences that also presented an ethical dilemma in my life was during a time when I was in a leadership position and was required to make a decision regarding recruitment of volunteers for a particular program. This program was for training young people regarding life skills issues at no costs since the participants or volunteers were basically required to be available and committed to the training for the three months period. The organization had a target of approximately 15 individuals though the advertisement for the program was made to a youth group of approximately 200 people.

Initially, the organization did not anticipate a huge turnout of interested people since many young people were skeptical about attending training sessions. The organization's expectation was also based on the fact that many young people had preference for entertaining events rather than training. As a result of…… [Read More]

Based on Damirch, Rahimi, and Seyyedi (2011), the famous James MacGregor Burns created this design when researching governmental leaders; nevertheless, its good effect traversed to other fields and areas. In my situation, the importance given to the transformational leadership idea is related to its development of a higher-performing, dedicated personnel when used in health-care institutions. In medical centers as well as other treatment institutions, transformational leadership could be carried out within any institutional system or department like worker groups, divisions, sectors, as well as at the top leadership (Choi, Goh, Adam, And Tan, 2016).

Despite of a global economic recession, China surpassed Japan in GDP to become the second-largest economy. This is great news but it disguises the real impact of China's economic growth on social and political affairs in the country. Housing prices are so high that most young Chinese people cannot afford to buy even the smallest house. Income disparity has grown between the rural poor and the comparatively wealthy urbanites. Compounding the problem are quality of life factors, such as water and air pollution.

I have myriads of questions and concerns related to my country's role in the world, and how it is addressing its domestic problems too.

Overview of the Industry:

In the United States, there are two main functions of a pawnbroker. The first is making small loans, secured by personal property. The second function is the sale of merchandise.

According to the Florida Pawnbrokers Association, loans are the high profit center for pawnshops. "The retail side also generates an average of 27% of the shops revenue. The Association stated, "In 1996, the nation's 9,100 pawnshops generated $4 billion in revenue."

Pawnbrokers are regulated in the United States mostly at either the state or local area.
