OD Intervention Project—Task 2

OD Intervention Project—Task 2.

Title: My OD Intervention Project—Task 2

This course has major assignments that will be due in Weeks 3 and 5. It will take more than a week’s effort to adequately complete them. Plan time to start the research and other work for those assignments earlier than the week in which they are due.

Last week, you selected an organization for your project and wrote a report including the name of the organization (may be disguised) and the problem(s) the organization is facing.

This week:

Prepare a report indicating the entry process for Walmart. In your report, address the following prompts:

  • When you enter the organization as an external consultant, justify whether you will use a problem-oriented or a development-oriented diagnosis for this project.
  • Justify how you will determine the organization’s readiness for change.
  • On the basis of your chosen diagnosis approach from the first bullet point, assess the organizational issue that is the target for change. Be sure to focus on root causes and not just symptoms. What will be the appropriate organizational level to initiate the change? (State the real issue for a real organization and create a realistic issue for a hypothetical one.)
  • Propose when you will give the organization feedback about the change you implement. How will you include feedback about how well the change is working in your action plan? What will that feedback be? Will you develop a survey to assess the effectiveness of the change, or will you use company reports that already exist or may need to be altered to gather pertinent information?

  • Present a 3- page paper

The field of cognitive psychology.

The field of cognitive psychology..

The goal of this discussion forum is to offer you an introduction to the field of cognitive psychology. Cognitive psychology is a discipline within psychology that is concerned with the scientific study of the human mind. The mind is responsible for a variety of functions and abilities, including perception, attention, consciousness, memory, reasoning, and decision-making. Most of our mental life is unconscious. If the objects of our attention are equated to the objects of our consciousness, it is reasonable to assume that we are aware of only a limited number of events in our daily lives.

For your initial post, complete the following steps:

  • Watch the video entitled, The Magic of the Unconscious: Automatic Brain (Links to an external site.).
  • Select a “hot topic” of cognitive psychology based on what you have heard and/or seen in the media and your personal interests.
  • Look for a report in the media (e.g., newspapers, magazines, web pages of professional organizations, etc.) that refers to the selected topic such as “defendant cannot remember what happened,” “false memories explain UFO abduction stories,” and so forth.
  • Describe the content of the selected report and offer your own perspective. Namely, use your critical-thinking skills to examine the extent to which the claims made in the report and the evidence upon which the report relies are to be trusted. Then, discuss the real-life consequences of the evidence reported.

In your post, include a link to the selected report, and explain to the members of the class why you have selected it. Support your points with evidence from at least one peer-reviewed research article. Your initial post must be a minimum of 300 words.

prevention and promotion of a social issue.

prevention and promotion of a social issue.. You are at the point in the course where you have gained a great understanding of community psychology, its principles and application. Your task in this assignment is to review information presented to the general public concerning prevention and promotion of a social issue. You may want to use this assignment to help you prepare for your Signature Assignment as well.

Many national prevention and promotion public awareness campaigns have an abundance of material available to the general public. For example, the Red Cross not only has a web site, but it also has local, national and international offices. It often distributes its pamphlets to doctors’ offices, hospitals and local emergency response agencies. The same holds true for the American Cancer Society. Your community may have a number of outreach programs as well, addressing such issues as homelessness, domestic violence, literacy, etc.

Once you have decided on what campaign and organization you would like to examine for this assignment, collect a sample of its outreach materials. You also will need to look for media coverage of the campaign; newspaper and magazine articles, video clips and web sites all may have information of value to you for this assignment. As you collect your materials, remember to keep track of the source and context of the work.

Review the material and address the following questions in an essay to form an analysis of the effectiveness of the selected prevention/promotion campaign:

  • What is the purpose of the work? Does it discuss a community or social issue that could be addressed by prevention/promotion initiatives? Or does it report on a specific prevention/promotion intervention?
  • If a prevention/promotion intervention is described, what protective processes is the program trying to strengthen? What risk processes is the program trying to weaken?
  • What population is being focused on? How were particular participants chosen? Some criteria may include age, gender, race or ethnicity, socioeconomic status or class, urban/suburban/rural location or geographic area, nation, or historical/political/cultural context.
  • What social systems are involved–health care (includes prenatal/ birth/postnatal care), parents/families, peers, schools, religious settings, workplaces, leisure/recreational, community organizations, media/Internet/cyberspace, other?
  • What ecological level or levels of analysis does the article address–Individual, microsystems, organizations, localities, and/or macrosystems? What specific persons or groups does it address at that level? Is it targeted at the right level(s)?
  • If a prevention/promotion intervention is described, does it respond to a planned or predictable life situation (such as an education-related transition) or to an unpredictable life event (a reaction to a stressful or crisis event, such as divorce, bereavement, unemployment)?
  • Does the article focus on a wider community or social issue, such as poverty, social injustice, prejudice, or drugs? How might “small wins” thinking be applicable in prevention/promotion efforts on that issue?
  • If a prevention/promotion intervention was conducted, who planned it? How much were various constituencies and stakeholders involved? At what points? Were the persons most affected by decisions made in this program involved in making those decisions? Was there sufficient sensitivity to cultural and contextual factors?
  • How was the intervention implemented? Where? By whom? Under what conditions? When was it carried out? How often? Over what period of time? Did the program developers check to see if the program was actually implemented as planned?
  • What is the evidence for the effectiveness of the intervention? What are the sources of that evidence?
  • Which of the objectives were clearly met? Not met? Met partially? Did it have an impact on the wider community? How?
  • Was the intervention implemented in multiple settings or contexts? Was it effective in all settings?
  • Are you convinced that the authors’ interpretations or organization’s claims of effectiveness are true? Why or why not?
  • What are the most important things you think can be learned from what you read? What important questions does it raise?

Length: 5-7 pages
