Both 1 And 2

Assignment 1

For this discussion, you will create a presentation from the point of view of two specific professionals who are experts on the topic you selected in Week One for your Final Project.  For this discussion:

  • Consider the psychological      career alternatives available and determine from which fields of expertise      your two points of view will come.
  • Select the two professionals      you will use with expertise on the topic you selected.  Your      professionals’ identity may be based on a real person that you know, or      they may be made-up based on the job description of a professional in the      field.  The titles of your professionals should represent actual jobs      (based on job descriptions) from categories in two different areas of      mental health (e.g., psychiatry and psychology, social work and counseling).
  • In one or two sentences,      briefly introduce your experts by describing their current careers as well      as their backgrounds. The experts will be providing scholarly information      on your selected topic based on the point-of-view of their respective professions.
    Provide evaluations from the experts in the course of the presentation,      regarding contributions of psychological research on the chosen topic in      an applied context.
  • Include information from at      least two peer-reviewed articles that were published within the last five      years to substantiate your experts’ claims.  You must select these      two articles on your own.  You may not use resources listed within      this course.  For information on how to generate search terms for specific      resources, visit the Ashford University Library.

To begin, create a presentation using the Sample Presentation Template, of at least five slides (not including the title and reference slides).  Provide the following elements in your presentation:

  • A side-by-side comparison of      your experts including their current careers as well as their backgrounds
  • A brief general explanation of      the topic chosen in Week One
  • Provide a slide for each of the      experts’ points of view including appropriate citations of your referenced      resources
  • A brief overview and comparison      of the two experts’ points of view
  • A separate reference slide must      be included at the end of the presentation
  • A minimum of three scholarly      sources published within the last five years must be included in the      discussion. References are cited according to APA guidelines.
  • A link to a website from an      organization associated with each expert’s profession.  Include      information from that website where the corresponding expert is presenting      her or his point of view. Include the websites in the reference slide      using the full APA citation format for websites. Do not just copy and paste      the URL to the website.
  • Use the sample template      provided to organize your presentation. You may change the font sizes in      the presentation. However, do not use a font smaller than 20 pt. You are      encouraged to insert relevant figures and graphics. Make sure to appropriately      cite any images you use that you did not create yourself. If you include a      table or figure from a journal article, cite it according to APA      guidelines.

Next, create a 3 to 5 minute oral video presentation of your presentation using a screencast program such as Jing or Screencast-O-Matic. You may also use YouTube or a voiceover PowerPoint saved as a video file with audio. The maximum time allowed for your presentation is 5 minutes, so practicing your presentation prior to recording it is highly recommended.

  • Please include a title for your      presentation in the description box when you publish your oral video      presentation.

Finally, copy and paste the URL link to your oral video presentation (screencast or video file) in your discussion forum response section.

  • Your presentation must utilize      at least two scholarly peer-reviewed resources, in addition to your      textbook, cited in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • All references used within the      presentation must be cited properly within the slides and included on the      required reference slide, which will be the last slide within your      presentation.
  • Due to the time limit of your      presentation video, you are not required to speak or read through the      reference list. However, you must include your reference list within the      discussion post along with the URL link to your presentation and submit      your presentation via doc sharing.
