Psychological Development In Adolescence
[ send me this paper ]
A 10 page paper discussing adolescence in general. By far, the teen years are not all doom and gloom unless people around the teen attempt to make them that way, but by the same token, adults have no reason to tell teens that life never improves. Finishing up with the hormone wash and gaining the life experience that enables the individual to truly know who he is are freeing in the end, but both processes alone can be devastating to the teen who has only limited adult support and the safety net of a loving and accepting family. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

Rationale for a Student Assistance Program
[ send me this paper ]
A 13 page paper discussing the need for and structuring of a Student Assistance Program (SAP) in the school setting. There are many and varied programs available designed to help people of all ages deal with the stresses of life and focusing specifically on drug and alcohol abuse. Though many such programs exist, a feature common to most is that they are not well known in the communities they serve. Participation commonly is in the form of a "sentence" imposed by some civil authority, and many individuals already have lived most of their lives devoted to their specific addictions. Modeled on the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) model, the SAP works to accomplish identification and intervention much earlier, and on a voluntary basis in every case possible. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Movie characters are used to illustrate social theories. Bibliography lists 1 source.

Spanking Verses Modern Forms of Behavioral Modification
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page discussion of techniques for achieving behavioral modification. Spanking as a form of correction is viewed very differently by different people. The more traditional approach to child rearing incorporates spanking as a mild form of punishment. Spanking is employed as a means of correcting inappropriate behavior. The more contemporary approach to child rearing, however, often views spanking as an antiquated and cruel relict of our past. Many contend in fact that spanking is ineffective in terms of instilling correct behavior in a child. In many cases in fact spanking, although an effective deterrent of earlier generations, is not the most preferred means of behavioral modification in today’s environment. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
