For this module, submit summaries for chapters 1, 5, the dvd, big enough, and your choice of a journal article.

Journal Article Review
You are expected to provide a brief summary, in your own words, of each assigned learning activity AND a summary of an additional peer reviewed journal article, chosen by you, that relates to a topic of your choice within each module.
You may find the journal articles through the ESC library. A peer review journal is one where any article being submitted that is the result of research or a theoretical proposal must go through a review process. This article is sent by the editors of the journal to 2-3 professionals (peers) with expertise in the same content area. Only if the article is considered to make a new and accurate contribution to the field will it be accepted for publication. You often hear about information from these articles, such as those from The New England Journal of Medicine through secondary sources, such as broadcasters or professionals; but to read the articles, you would need to access the journal. If the information is being presented orally in professionally regulated conferences, the proposal for the presentation must also go through a similar peer review process before being accepted. In this way a field polices itself by making sure (as much as possible) that information that is treated as knowledge is accurate.
The summary of each chapter or article should be no longer than a paragraph–at least aim for that length. The summary can take many forms, but it must have something of you in it. I do not want just the words from the book or article; I want to see the process of your understanding. What do you think about the reading? Does it ring true for you, or do you disagree? Can you apply it to anything in your own life or experiences?
For this module, submit summaries for Chapters 1, 5, the DVD, Big Enough, and your choice of a journal article.

In this discussion, you assume the role of an hspp and respond to one case study involving mental health crises in the context of family living conditions, such as homelessness and unsafe living conditions.

Inconsistent, unstable, or unsafe living conditions can be detrimental to the mental health of children and adolescents. For example, consider the living conditions in a homeless shelter. A child or adolescent may sleep with their family in one large room with many other homeless families, which offers no privacy or peace and quiet. They may have to stand in line for hours to get meals, or they may skip meals all together. They may have to bathe in a communal bathroom or worry about their belongings being stolen. Now, consider the living conditions in a neighborhood with high levels of violence and crime. A child or adolescent might fear playing outside or walking to school. They may have immediate family or neighbors who were killed by gun violence. How do you think these living conditions might contribute to mental health crises, such as depression and substance abuse? And as an HSPP, how would you respond?
In this Discussion, you assume the role of an HSPP and respond to one case study involving mental health crises in the context of family living conditions, such as homelessness and unsafe living conditions.
Post a response to the following questions:
-What signs and symptoms of a mental health crisis is the person exhibiting?
-What would your initial response be to the person in the case study?
-What non-clinical intervention would you use to help the person manage crisis, and why?
-What is one ethical and/or legal consideration you would make when responding, and why?
Case Study:
Timothy is a 16-year-old adolescent who is homeless. His family frequents the soup kitchen where you volunteer. After dinner service, Timothy shares that he has not been feeling like himself since his family has become homeless. He explains that he has periods when he feels really sad and cries uncontrollably. He says that he feels hopeless and wonders if his family will ever have a stable home again. Although he values his family, he is having trouble finding self-worth. Placing his hands over his face, he begins to cry audibly. You believe that Timothy may be experiencing depression, although he has not been formally diagnosed.

Discussion Post
Some of the disadvantage faced by the little people we met in the film are how they are view in society (Krawitz). How they are “differently labeled” (Hardman et al., 2017, p. 3, p. 4).Their disadvantage are being too small, and they can’t do certain things like reaching for the door, the stove, and play in certain sports because of their height. Dating is another disadvantage for the little people. Most of the time they will have to date little people like themselves (Krawitz). Putting gas in their car or grocery shopping is another disadvantage for them. They usually need help from people who are taller than they are to help them with certain task. It is hard for them to manage their day to day lives with Dwarfism, but they manage pretty well. The little people overcome their disadvantage by not letting nothing stop them from living their lives. Even with the perception society have on them, they live and work and date in the same society as everyone else, and don’t care too much how they are view. The acceptance of their conditions and loving themselves (Krawitz). I overcome disadvantage i face by applying positive self talk into my life. I accept my condition as it is and i don’t let no one stop me from living my best life. I had a speech delay when i was a child and never received speech therapy for it, so as i grew up it is some what hard to pronounce certain words without it sound funny. Including the fact that i speak another language made it more obvious, like you can literally hear an accent and pronunciation is off sometimes. Sometimes, people would make fun of it, not knowing that it is not my fault that i couldn’t pronounce the word right.

Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention, you be the delegates.”

Reaction Paper #1 Assignment
Mark as done
After reading Rules for Radicals Prologue & The Purpose
500-800 words
Avoid Summary. Do not quote the book directly and definitely do not quote my notes. Focus on your analysis of the material based on your experience.
Use this prompt as a starting point…. Has anything really changed in terms of social activism since this was first written (no more than two lines on social media) fifty years ago? How do you feel about “the Haves, the Have-Nots, and the Have-a-Little, Want Mores.” and the “Do-Nothings”? Which one are you?
Prologue the moral & the material
The young are inundated with a barrage of information and facts so overwhelming that the world has come to seem an utter bedlam, which has them spinning in a frenzy.
Today’s generation faces all this and says, “I don’t want to spend my life the way my family and their friends have. I want to do something, to create, to be me, to ‘do my own thing,’ to live. The older generation doesn’t understand and worse doesn’t want to.
These rules make the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one who uses the tired old words and slogans, calls the police “pig” or “white fascist racist” or “motherfucker” and has so stereotyped himself that others react by saying, “Oh, he’s one of those,” and then promptly turn off.
Working within the system. “We will start with the system because there is no other place to start from except political lunacy”
“Do one of three things. One, go find a wailing wall and feel sorry for yourselves. Two, go psycho and start bombing—but this will only swing people to the right. Three, learn a lesson. Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention, you be the delegates.”
It Begins
1) Machiavelli vs. Alinsky “literature of a have society”
a. “Religious, economic, social, political, and legal tracts endlessly attack all revolutionary ideas and action for change as immoral, fallacious and against God, country, and mother.”
b. Communist Alternative literature.
i. Revolution wrongly associated with communism/capitalism the status quo
ii. “The revolutionary ideology is not confined to a specific limited formula”
2) Avoid dogma
3) Control
The Ideology of Change
1) Free society organizer- loose, fluid, always questioning
2) See the world as it is now as you would like it to be.
3) Hypocrisy of power, law….even religion is complicit in the status quo.
4) See duality, converse, complementary nature.
5) The Jungle- Sinclair-cycle
6) “The descriiption of any procedure as “positive” or “negative” is the mark of a political illiterate.”
7) Revolution-> counter revolution
Class Distinctions
1) “the Haves, the Have-Nots, and the Have-a-Little, Want Mores.”
2) When do we sleep vs. when do we eat
3) Have a little-political bi-polar
4) “Do-Nothings” – I agree with your ends but not your means/ this is not the time
5) If there’s no top, Why the climb?
6) To continue upward
7) “ is a relay of revolutions; the torch of idealism is carried by the revolutionary group until this group becomes an establishment, and then quietly the torch is put down to wait until a new revolutionary group picks it up for the next leg of the run. Thus the revolutionary cycle goes on.”
8) The Low road to morality….
