•Complete a genogram, using the template in the Learning Resources, of you and a nonfamily member

Assignment: Genogram: Constructing Interaction PatternsGenograms are like family trees in many ways. They use symbols and lines to represent relationships between parents and children across generations. Typically, however, a family tree only represents basic biological information, such as siblings, parent–child relationships, marriages, etc. A genogram provides more sophisticated levels of information that may be of use to medical or mental health professionals working with an individual or family. Genograms use a broader array of symbols than family trees to represent family relationships (e.g., cohabitation, divorce, love affair), emotional relationships (e.g., estranged, abusive, romantic, manipulative), diseases or health risks (e.g., substance abuse, cancer, diabetes), and even social relationships outside of traditional family spheres (e.g., neighbor, mentor, spiritual leader, coworker).Genograms are useful to human and social services professionals because they provide a visual representation of relationships, emotional bonds, and patterns that exist in an individual’s or family’s past or present. They can be useful not only to help the professional identify the patterns but also as a great tool to help explain patterns to clients.For this Assignment, you gain experience completing a genogram by constructing one of you and a nonfamily member.To Prepare:Review the Constructing a Genogram media and the Genogram Template document in this week’s Learning Resources. Follow the directions provided in the template to complete your genogram. Be sure to provide an accurate key to your genogram and to use consistent symbols throughout.The Assignment:Complete a genogram, using the template in the Learning Resources, of you and a nonfamily member.

Remember, a full diagnosis should include the name of the disorder, ICD-10-CM code, specifiers, severity, and the Z codes (other conditions that may be a focus of clinical attention). Keep in mind a diagnosis covers the most recent 12 months.Explain the diagnosis by matching the symptoms identified in the case to the specific criteria for the diagnosis.Explain why it is important to use an interprofessional approach in treatment. Identity specific professionals you would recommend for the team, and describe how you might best utilize or focus their services.Explain how you would use the client’s family to support recovery. Include specific behavioral examples.Select and explain an evidence-based, focused treatment approach that you might use in your part of the overall treatment plan.Explain how culture and diversity influence these disorders.

She admitted to suicidal ideation. She complained of feeling paranoid over the past few weeks and believed the police were after her and that she heard them outside her door.

Diamond reported she was emotionally abused as a child and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, but she denied a history of flashbacks or nightmares or any avoidance of the person who she says emotionally abused her.Diamond noted that at times over the past year she has very strange experiences of being overwhelmed with fear.

She said her father worked all the time, and there was a housekeeper who cared for the children.Diamond reports that when she was in high school, her maternal aunt, who was dying of cancer, came to live with the family and this was very stressful for the family.

GLOBAL ISSUES

Analysis on Food SecurityOverviewThe members of the United Nations found great value in the analysis you provided on the effects of global warming that result from population growth. They are now asking you write an additional analysis to include further issues related to population growth. Here is the issue they have asked you to consider:The member states of the United Nations seek to build food systems that can provide global food security which will feed everyone, everywhere, every day by improving food quality though the promotion of effective and nutritional agricultural practices. The crucial issue is not the lack of food in the world but the access to that food. In many developing countries, food shortages are due to governmental control over food distribution. These governments maintain control of the population and their power by limiting access to nutritious food to certain groups. In this practice, they thereby “weaponize” food.Your second project as a consultant for the United Nations is to develop an analysis that addresses three issues related to global food insecurity caused by global population growth and poverty, and to explore these issues in a developing country of your choosing.InstructionsThe U.N. has given you the following guidelines:ContentThe U.N. has asked that your paper contain three sections. Each section should be one page (or approximately 300 words) in length and answer specific questions, identified in the outline below. It also asks that you use examples from your developing country when answering the questions.IntroductionProvide an introduction of half a page minimum that addresses points 1–5 below:Explain the problem the U.N. has asked you to address in your own words.Identify the three sections your paper will cover.Identify the developing country you will consider.Tell the U.N. the causes of food insecurity.Provide a one-sentence statement of your solutions at the end of your introduction paragraph.Section I. BackgroundWhat is food insecurity?What role does population growth play in food security?Section II. Technologies That Can Reduce Hunger and Improve Food SecurityWhat forms of technology can be used to reduce hunger and improve food security?How would these technological solutions work?What causes of food insecurity do these technologies address?Section III. Specific Factors in Chosen Developing CountryConsidering the causes of food insecurity, what factors interrupt the flow of food from the source to the people in the developing country you selected?ConclusionProvide a conclusion of half a page minimum that includes a summary of your findings that the United Nations can use to inform future policy decisions.Success TipsIn answering each question, use examples from your developing country to illustrate your points.The U.N. needs facts and objective analysis on which to base future policy decisions. Avoid personal opinion and make sure your answers are based on information you find through research.Formatting RequirementsMake sure your paper consists of 4–6 pages of content (or 1,200 words minimum, not including the cover or reference pages).Create headings for each section of your paper as follows:Section I. Background.Section II. Technologies That Can Reduce Hunger and Improve Food Security.Section III. Specific Factors in Chosen Developing Country.Use and cite at least five credible sources in your research.
