1. Discuss the Ashford University institutional outcomes and the program outcomes by identifying their relevance to a profession in psychology.




2. Create one personal life example and one career example in which you wrestle with personal challenges and an ethical dilemma (e.g., a client or research subject reveals compromising information about a friend or family member who also happens to be someone you know in a personal/social context).




3. After identifying the problem, include a section wherein you address each of the following prior to making a decision about a course of action:




• From your point of view, what is the problem?




• From the point of view of other individuals, what is the problem?




• What are the options? What are potential consequences of the options?










• What are the risks of each potential solution?








• What are the risks of not resolving the challenges effectively?




• What evidence/data do you have to assist you in decision making?

Select at least three competencies that are most relevant to your scenarios. Be specific in your discussion of the scenarios and provide details demonstrating professional problem solving in your case study .








5. Conclude the case study with how you resolved the problem (the outcome) and what you learned while at Ashford University that assisted you in deciding on an effective resolution. You may also identify additional competencies used to resolve the problem that are not included in the institutional and program outcomes.
