Your goal with this paper is to explain the symptoms of the disorder in terms of the biological issues

Your goal with this paper is to explain the symptoms of the disorder in terms of the biological issues that are occurring. This basically means that you will be linking the symptom to a neurotransmitter or brain area (or both). You will need to be specific. Is the symptom linked to overactivity in the brain area or underactivity? Is it linked to too much of that neurotransmitter or not enough. EVERY symptom that you mention about the disorder MUST be explained and linked to something biological.

You are also welcome to include information about treatments for the disorder. Focus on the biological treatments (mostly medications, but there are other possibilities) and how they work in the brain as well. Connect them to brain areas and neurotransmitters too. If you list ten different medications that are used for the disorder, make sure you explain how each one biologically works and what the differences between them are.

– at least 4 pages, no more than 8 pages
– at least 5 sources
– references follow APA format
– At least 2 sources are scientific journal articles (peer-reviewed; website sources are specific and reputable)
– NO quotes
– all symptoms biologically linked and explained

One of the important attributes of theory is the ability to help explain and predict outcomes. Within development, this

One of the important attributes of theory is the ability to help explain and predict outcomes. Within development, this couldn’t be truer. Developmental theories have helped researchers and professionals alike be able to understand how influential factors impact development and lead to positive and negative outcomes later on in life. A popular development theory, the ecological theory by Urie Bronfenbrenner, suggests that the interaction between the individual and various levels of environment context contribute to overall development. Here is a breakdown of that theory:

Microsystem: examples include but are not limited to family members, teachers, friends, and neighbors; how do these factors interact with the individual and how does the individual impact these factors?
Mesosystem: this level emphasizes relationships and interactions among members of the microsystem, such as the dynamic between parents and the child’s teacher or the spouse and the individual’s friends; are there dynamics that play a role in how the individual developed?
Exosystem: here the environment can directly influence the individual, but the individual does not have a reciprocal role; an example would be a parent’s place of employment or inadequate healthcare facilities; what factors within this system impacted the individual?
Macrosystem: this level reflects the cultural influences of the individual, such as their socioeconomic status (SES) or race; again, the individual may not impact this level, but this can influence them; how and why did aspects of the macrosystem impact the individual’s development?
Chronosystem: here the historical context and change over the individual’s lifespan can exact influence, including policy and social norms; for example, the legalization of same-sex marriage may influence an individual’s willingness to be open about their sexual orientation and seek out a family. Utilizing the individual’s age, what historical contexts may help explain the how and why of the individual’s development?
For this assignment, you are going to select two (2) of the above systems and use them to analyze the following case study; when I say analyze, I want you to use the theory as a basis for considering the “why” and “how” the individual got into the situation they are. The case study is not fully complete with all details and there are always additional factors that influence our choices and behaviors. You can speculate additional factors that are not listed, but be sure they are backed up with research and tie into ecological theory. While you can address the other family members that are listed within the vignette, the name in bold is the person of interest and whom you should center your analysis on.

Guidelines
Research will be crucial to help create your argument for why you think the case study person ended up the way that they did. You will need at least two (2) scholarly sources from peer-reviewed publications, such as academic journals, books, and textbooks. In-text citations and the reference page need to be presented in APA format. Please use the reference APA Style and APA Video Announcement for assistance.

Other requirements:

2-3 pages in length (cover page NOT required; reference page required);
APA formatting (abstract and running head are NOT required);
Font size 12. Double-spaced.
This paper will be submitted through the Canvas assignment link and run through Turnitin for plagiarism; please review the information on academic dishonesty within the syllabus.
Case Study #1
A teen girl
Christina (age 13, African-American) has lived with her grandmother, aunt, and younger siblings since she was 8. She currently has no contact with either her mother or father and last interaction was prior to placement with her grandmother. Christina and her siblings were removed from the parents due to reports of neglect, physical abuse, and parental drug use. Christina struggles at school and often receives referrals for aggressive and disobedient behavior toward teachers and students. She was arrested recently for physically assaulting another youth at the park near her house; this appears to be an escalating pattern. When questioned about her future, Christina reports her desire to move out of her hometown and become a fashion designer. Grandmother, Gladys (age 55, African-American) reports that Christina is very defiant at home and often sneaks out of the house. She is afraid that her granddaughter is using drugs and alcohol and is unaware of her sexual status. Gladys reports that while she attempts to provide supportive structure and rules, she also wants to be a grandma rather than a mother. Aside from raising Christina, Gladys is also raising Christina’s brothers, Stephen (age 9) and Jamaal (age 6); parenting again appears to be taking a toll on Gladys’ health.

Look through the different issues to identify a research article related to a study about a topic pertaining to early or middle adulthood that interests you (e.g., parenting, marriage, divorce, family, employment, etc.). The article should be about this population of individuals (young adults or middle adults)—not the children of these individuals or the childhood of those individuals. Choose an article that is not older than 2018.
Read your research article and summarize it in no fewer than 2 paragraphs (~1 double-spaced typed page) using APA style for your in-text citations. You should have at least one in-text citation per paragraph.
You may only use 1 direct “word-for-word” quote, but you do not have to use any. If you do, it must be cited appropriately using APA style. The rest of the summary should be paraphrased but still cited appropriately.
Do not plagiarize; you must paraphrase the article and your textbook. That means that no more than 3 words in a row can match the original. Check your Turnitin report before submitting your journal summary.
in your 1st paragraph:

(a) What was the topic of the study?

(b) What was the research question?

(c) What were the hypotheses?

(d) Who were the participants? Describe the population.

(e) What method did the researchers use to address their research question? (e.g., survey, interview, observation). Was this study an experiment, a correlation, a quasi-experiment, etc.?

(f) What did the researchers find (i.e., what were the results)?

(g) What do these findings mean (according to the researcher)?

In your 2nd paragraph:

(a) How do these findings relate to the material on this topic in your textbook? (Look in chapters on early or middle adulthood in your book.) Be specific. You will need to cite your textbook (not the authors of the study in your textbook), too, using an in-text citation.

(b) What did you learn about the topic from reading this article?

3) Reference page: Create a separate Reference page using APA style to reference your article and your textbook using full citations.

Use APA format for citing the article you are summarizing.

Any summary that is shown to have a score of 20% or more on the “Turnitin” report will be assigned a 0 and will need to be rewritten in order for the student to receive any credit (the % will show in the drop box folder when submitted). The maximum grade for a rewritten summary will be a one-letter grade reduction. Above 30-40% in the Turnitin report indicates extensive plagiarism. If the summary is not rewritten, it will count as an O for this part of the activity. A rewritten summary must be resubmitted to “Turnitin” within two (2) days of receiving a 0 on this assignment; do not wait for me, the instructor, to tell you that your Turnitin similarity score is too high because you can view this yourself. If you wait until very close to the deadline (e.g., the day of the deadline) to complete this activity, you may also incur a late activity penalty. The title of the rewritten activity should have “rewrite” somewhere in the title of the file name.
Note: article summaries will not be graded (a 0 grade will be entered) if the article, itself, is not submitted OR if you use the incorrect journal (not one from the journal of Developmental Psychology) OR if you do not use an article that is 2018 or newer OR if your article is not about the lives of or a topic related to early or middle adulthood.

Throughout chapters 1-9, we continue to learn the impacts of the ICF and the interrelatedness of the Health Care Essay

Throughout chapters 1-9, we continue to learn the impacts of the ICF and the interrelatedness of the Health Care Development Model within the context of Life course theory. The core tenet notion is that early experience influences later health. We have learned about the influence of the social determinants of health, including the environment. Your reading on Health Care Development Model further digs deeper into health integration and the environmental impact on the infant and later life circle. As learned in your last reading, the first postnatal year of the infant is critical and the foundation of a later lifespan. No wonder early intervention for the first year should always be to determine possible medical, social, and environmental needs that may influence late lifespan. Therapists and developmental specialists providing early intervention should be vested in all the best practices assessment tools, including SBAR. According to your reading, the ultimate goal of early intervention is to promote positive development in this critical period, as defined by ICF. Now think about an infant without early intervention. Think about the congenital disability that could have been corrected before growing into the subsequent life circle. How about understanding the family and knowing that infants in the first year typically emerge in the family context? Think about families with a substance abuse history or other biological challenges or history. The key for the Therapist and other developmental specialists is to assess the risk and protective factors to promote a normal infant developmental outcome. The infant transitioned from being dependent on mobility and control to having rudimentary environmental mastery in locomotion and using the hand to explore the environment, which promotes cognitive abilities. Also, as social beings, infants should feel attachment and have a nurturing care provider to help create growth and development pathways. In your Discussion 10 using the talking points from your reading, paint a picture of:
1. An infant with neurological needs
2. Create Care Intervention
3. Provide the potential impact of such Care Intervention on the life course of the infant
