Maury is a young clinical psychologist who is new to private practice

THIS IS A DB AND REPLY POST (reply post will be in messages)

Maury is a young clinical psychologist who is new to private practice, and is working on a fee-for-service basis, meaning he doesn’t take insurance.

One of the clients he has been treating is a 20-year old man who was referred by his parents whom Maury had seen previously to consult on parenting for their younger child. This patient still depends on his parents financially, and they were writing the checks the client would bring to pay for therapy.

After a few months in which good progress seemed to be made, the client suddenly grew dissatisfied and began devaluing Maury and the treatment; he unexpectedly quit therapy, still owing an unpaid balance of over $600.

Maury had a good relationship with the client’s parents, and he is confident they would be happy to pay the balance. However, the client is an adult, and Maury does not have a signed Release of Information stating he can speak with the client’s parents.

Discuss what Maury can do to recover the unpaid balance. What ethical issues and concerns should he keep in mind? How might he avoid such a situation in the future?

After sharing your thoughts, please respond to at least two other classmates’ posts.

Signature Assignment, you will apply your profiling skills during an investigation.

Signature Assignment, you will apply your profiling skills during an investigation. Imagine that you have been hired by the FBI to work as a profiler. In this assignment, put your skills to the test by developing a PowerPoint presentation that delivers your findings to the FBI agents working on the case. You may use any information you have developed from previous assignments or create new information (e.g., suspect impressions report and summary identified information pertaining to demographics, physical characteristics, possible motive). You may use that information in your Signature Assignment. However, your goal for this assignment is to ensure that use your PowerPoint presentation to conveyed to the FBI that you have developed a solid criminal profile based on the following:

  • Identify the crime and crime scene in a well-organized manner (with specific details).
  • Indicate any physical and emotional attributes of the suspect (e.g., height, weight, piercings, markings). Is the suspect known to “fly off the handle”, or does he/she have a history of property destruction? If so, how do you know this–who provided you with this information and are they credible?
  • Identify your possible suspect and present rationale (e.g., What led you to this hypothesis? What physical or other identifying information connected the victims to the alleged suspect? What geographic considerations were factored into your hypothesis?).
  • Identify information about the victims in the case. How many, were there similarities? If so, what where they? Are the victims connected to each other in some way (e.g., work, friends, school, etc.)?
  • Determine the possible motivation for the criminal committing the crime (i.e., childhood history, mental illness, significant life event).
  • Include any other relevant history, such as prior arrests or hospitalizations.

Be sure your presentation demonstrates that you have developed a solid theory of the suspect and that you understand the crime that was committed, as well as the victims associated with the crime and any additional information. Specifically, you must accurately define the connections that exist among your crime scene analysis, victim information, and key findings to develop your profile. The goal is to provide the FBI with the knowledge you have to help the agents solve the crime. Your presentation should include a summary that explains the crime, crime scene, and victim(s). The summary is intended to provide details that lead to your analysis; therefore, they should reflect scholarship and application of the theories learned.

Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.

Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.

Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)

Notes Length: 200-350 words for each slide

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information.
