write a 700-1000 word
narrative to serve as a preface to the Professional Work Samples section. This narrative should consist of a
clear and thoughtful analysis of how each work sample reveals your strengths
and areas for improvement, according to each of the seven areas addressed in
the program outcomes/competencies. Make
sure you also address how you intend to strengthen your competencies in all
areas as you graduate onto the next step of your professional career. On which
areas will you focus most and why?

These outcomes are listed below,
along with the assignments that could be included to demonstrate mastery of the
outcome:

  • Cognitive abilities (critical
    thinking and information literacy): Assignments or projects that
    demonstrate problem solving, analysis, synthesis, appropriate use of
    information resources, etc.
  • Research skills: A
    copy of a research proposal, a survey developed, etc.
  • Communication skills (written
    and oral): A topic paper, presentation outline, or PowerPoint that
    demonstrates your written and oral communication skills.
  • Ethics & Diversity awareness: Papers that demonstrate your understanding and/or
    analysis of ethical and diversity issues in psychology.
  • Knowledge of foundations of the field: Assignments, papers, or projects that demonstrate your
    understanding of basic concepts, theories, and empirical findings in one
    or more of the domains of psychology, including biological, cognitive,
    developmental, personality, and social.
  • Knowledge of applied psychology: Assignments, papers, or projects from courses and/or an
    internship that demonstrates your ability to apply psychology to personal,
    social, and/or organizational problems.
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness: PowerPoint presentations, videos of your presentations
    that demonstrate your ability to communicate effectively, appreciate
    diversity and cultural sensitivity and awareness of your impact on others.

These are my work samples:

  • Car Accidents Using Cell Phones

  • This sample applied critical and
    creative thinking, skeptical inquiry, and a scientific approach to solve
    problems related to behavior and the mental processes. It was able to share
    multiple perspectives on the subject of car accidents because of cell phone
    operation. It was also able to recognize the underlying assumptions, and judged
    the rationality of these justifications by comparing them to a range of varying
    interpretations and prospective. The article provided positive as well as
    negative appraisal of the use of cell phones while operating a vehicle. It was
    able to uncover and judge scientific evidence for psychological claims. The
    topic paper, presentation outline demonstrated written and oral communication
    skills. It was able to demonstrate the understanding of basic concepts,
    theories, and empirical findings in one or more of the domains of psychology,
    including biological, cognitive, developmental, personality, and social. The
    sample demonstrated the ability to apply psychology to personal, social, and/or
    organizational problems. The sample recognized the essential elements of the
    cell phone problem, issue, or argument; however, some aspects of hypotheses or
    conclusions were confused or incorrect, details or nuances are missing or
    glossed over, multiple points of view were taken into account but
    contradictions are not resolved.

  • Cultural Competence

  • Cultural competence describes the
    ability of an individual or organization to interact effectively with people of
    different cultures, SHAMAHA, (2014). Culture competency is often described as
    the combination of a body of knowledge, a body of belief and a body of
    behavior.  It involves a set of congruent
    behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency, or
    among professionals that enables effective work in cross-cultural situations.
    ‘Culture’ refers to integrated patterns of human behavior that include the
    language, thoughts, communications, actions, customs, beliefs, values, and
    institutions of racial, ethnic, religious, or social groups,  OMH, (2013). This sample analyzed the
    importance of effective communication skills in developing strong interpersonal
    and organizational relationships that are culturally sensitive and respectful
    of diversity. The article provided a definition for cultural competence and
    provided some examples of what it means to be culturally competent. It
    identified psychological principles and started to examine and analyze
    personal, social, and organizational issues, but was unable to integrate or
    generalize applications beyond the examples that were given.

  • Schedule 2 Drugs

  • Cocaine and adderall are both stimulants that
    are classified as DEA schedule 2 drugs. Both drugs are potentially high for
    abuse, serious psychological problems, and physical addiction, DEA, (2014).
    Stimulants affect the central nervous system and those areas that are
    responsible for movement and pleasure (the dopamine) in the brain. Stimulants
    make dopamine build up in the synapse (space between neurons) by stopping these
    stimulants from being recycled. The built up of dopamine interferes with the
    normal communication of the brain causing a euphoric feeling. If abused
    consistently stimulants can cause permanent alterations in the reward and other
    systems in the brain. The more stimulants are abused; tolerance increases as
    the user attempts to emulate their initial experience, but cannot. Stimulant
    abuse can cause constriction of veins and arteries, pupil dilation; overall
    escalation in body temperature, it can increase the heartbeat and cause
    dangerously high blood pressure. Stimulants, when abused, can give the user
    headaches and causes problems with indigestion (cramps, nausea, and stomach
    pain). The user often looses their appetite and as a result is underweight and
    malnourished. Stimulants can render users vulnerable to fatal cardiac arrest,
    stroke, and cause an inability to breathe properly. As with any manner of drug
    abuse, abusers find themselves at HIV risk with unsafe behaviors. Inhaling
    stimulants may cause lesions in the nasal cavity, an inability to smell things,
    sore throat, and other chronic nasal problems. Stimulants with other drugs such
    as alcohol or depressants can cause many different kinds of severe problems,
    NIH, (2013). This sample found and evaluated scientific evidence for
    psychological claims. It explains major
    concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends
    in psychology. It applied psychological principles to examine and analyze
    personal, social, and organizational issues.

  • Behaviorism

  • Behaviorism is also referred to as
    behavioral psychology. It is a theory of learning that implies that all
    behaviors are obtained through conditioning. Conditioning is enhanced by
    interactions with the environment. Behaviorists deduced that our behaviors are
    molded by our responses to environmental stimuli. Popular behaviorists included
    Pavlov, Watson, and Skinner. This sample was able to explain major concepts,
    theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in
    psychology. It examined and compared theories by three psychologists, Pavlov,
    Watson, and Skinner, in their contributions to psychology.
