“How can I plan for sustainable work-life balance in my life and prioritize what really matters?”
Questions to help guide your writing: How do I spend my time–is it doing the things I value? How do I know what really matters? Do the things I do  everyday bring me joy? Do the things I do each day provide a genuine service (does anyone need me to do them)? Are there things I am doing that I do not enjoy that would go away if I was “downwardly mobile?” 
Although this written assignment is an informal response paper it is still important to remember to keep your paper and thoughts organized.  Try starting with an introduction and main point (thesis statement), followed by the body of the paper which should include support paragraphs and wrap of the paper with a conclusion.

This signature assignment is designed to align with specific program student learning outcome(s) in your program. Program Student Learning Outcomes are broad statements that describe what students should know and be able to do upon completion of their degree. The signature assignments may be graded with an automated rubric that allows the university to collect data that can be aggregated across a location or college/school and used for program improvements.  The purpose of this assignment is to prepare you for the process of case conceptualization and treatment planning. In order to be an effective professional counselor, you will need the skills to review and organize a broad array of information as it relates to an overarching clinical picture of your client’s presenting problem. Through the review, organization, and determination of relevant information, you will be able to formulate appropriate treatment plans. To prepare for this assignment, review the directions and then complete the following steps:  Review the Clinical Case Studies journal, located in the SAGE Journals resource in this week’s Electronic Reserve Readings.  Select a case study of a disorder that was presented in this course that interests you.  Complete the Biopsychosocial Assessment form, located on the College of Social Sciences Resources page under the Program Forms heading, based on your chosen case. Include the following in your Biopsychosocial Assessment form: •A description of what you observe about the client ◦A description of the presenting problem ◦History of the problem ◦A mental status examination ◦A description of the client’s social history ◦A description of the client’s health and wellness history ◦A description of the client’s therapeutic/psychiatric services history ◦A description of the client’s family relationship history ◦The client’s strengths ◦The client’s challenges ◦A theoretical case conceptualization in the Discussion/Clinical Formulation section ◦A DSM-5 diagnosis, including a discussion of the DSM-5 symptom checklist used ◦Your form should total a minimum of 700 words.   Research common treatment goals and strategies for the diagnosed disorder that align with the theory used in your case conceptualization.    Complete the Treatment Plan form, located on the College of Social Sciences Resources page under the Program Forms heading, based on the research you have completed. Include the following in your Treatment Plan form: •A minimum of two target problems •Specific, short-term goals for each target problem •Objectives for each target problem •Strategies/interventions to achieve goals for each target problem •A minimum of two academic, peer-reviewed sources to support the goals, objectives, and interventions for each target problem •Your form should total a minimum of 350 words.  Format any citations within your Biopsychosocial Assessment and Treatment Plan forms according to appropriate course-level APA guidelines.

In this unit, you are introduced to personality tests and issues with their development and use. One particular area of debate involves the inclusion of validity scales in tests of personality. While many concerns may exist, the use of such scales appears to be increasing and they continue to be utilized and interpreted.
For this discussion:
Analyze how validity in psychometrics, as you explored in Unit 4, is different from a validity scale in a test of personality. Describe this difference in terms of their definitions. Provide at least two examples of validity scales.
Integrate and cite the AERA standards from Chapter 10, “Psychological Testing and Assessment,” of your Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing text that directly address validity scales. Provide your interpretation of the standards and the use of validity scales. Do the standards permit, reject, or provide guidance on integrating such scales in a report? In your own words, state how one should, or should not, proceed with validity scales.
Cite at least one advantage and one disadvantage regarding the use of validity scales. The test authors provide several pros and cons of using validity scales in personality assessment. Based on your readings, including preparation for this discussion, what is your position on this issue; that is, using and interpreting validity scales on a measure of personality?
When you post this discussion, change your subject line to Use, or Don’t Use.
