Ethical Decision-Making   Your review of the literature and professional ethics

Ethical Decision-Making   Your review of the literature and professional ethics codes addresses the importance of resolving ethical dilemmas systematically and following established decision-making steps to resolve dilemmas effectively. As ethical codes do not provide specific solutions for ethical dilemmas, applying established ethical decision-making steps along with an understanding of established ethical codes is essential. Taking a systematic approach to ethical decision-making contributes to effective professional practice and ethical resolutions consistent with clients’ best interests.   In a 1,050- to 1,400-word (or 3- to 4-page) paper (excluding references and title page), based on the scenario below, discuss how you would apply systematic steps toward a resolution of the dilemma as a consultant hired by Wells Fargo. Discuss the specific steps of the decision-making model you would take in making an ethical decision. How might you include the client in making your decisions? In what way or ways is accounting for the ethics code important for decision-making? To support your responses, in addition to the required readings, cite at least two scholarly references.   Scenario  Wells Fargo was the darling of the banking industry, with some of the highest returns on equity in the sector and a soaring stock price. Top management touted the company’s lead in “cross-selling”: the sale of additional products to existing customers. “Eight is great,” as in eight Wells Fargo products for every customer, was CEO John Stumpf’s mantra.   In September 2016, Wells Fargo announced that it was paying $185 million in fines for the creation of over 2 million unauthorized customer accounts. It soon came to light that the pressure on employees to hit sales quotas was immense: hourly tracking, pressure from supervisors to engage in unethical behavior, and a compensation system based heavily on bonuses.   Wells Fargo also confirmed that it had fired over 5,300 employees over the past few years related to shady sales practices. CEO John Stumpf claimed that the scandal was the result of a few bad apples who did not honor the company’s values and that there were no incentives to commit unethical behavior. The board initially stood behind the CEO, but soon after received his resignation and “clawed back” millions of dollars in his compensation.   Further reporting found more troubling information. Many employees had quit under the immense pressure to engage in unethical sales practices, and some were even fired for reporting misconduct through the company’s ethics hotline. Senior leadership was aware of these aggressive sales practices as far back as 2004, with incidents as far back as 2002 identified.   The Board of Directors commissioned an independent investigation that identified cultural, structural, and leadership issues as root causes of the improper sales practices. The report cites the wayward sales culture and performance management system; the decentralized corporate structure that gave too much autonomy to the division’s leaders; and the unwillingness of leadership to evaluate the sales model, given its longtime success for the company.

As part of your evaluation, assess the integration of evidence-based practices into the telehealth trend in psychotherapy. Consider the population, specialty, and treatment preferences you identified in the Week One Creating a Specialist Website interactive assignment, and assess the appropriateness of using telephone, text-based, virtual clinics, and/or video telehealth given your client focus, specialty, and treatment preference(s). Analyze ethical and professional issues you might encounter and explain the risks and benefits of using these delivery methods with your identified treatment population.

Analyzing Theories of Crime
You are an investigative reporter for a large news network. You are working on a news piece identifying how theories of crime explain specific crimes including the demographics of perpetrators and victims. You are required to make a thirty-minute presentation to your producers to convince them to run your story.
Choose a specific crime from the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program at the following:
· US Department of Justice, The Federal Bureau of Investigation. (2009). 2008 Crime in the United States: About crime in the U.S. Retrieved from
Research this crime using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet. Be sure to include the UCR and other crime reports in your research
Based on your research, develop a presentation that addresses the following:
· Define the crime. Include both the legal definition and others as necessary.
· Summarize demographics of the crime for both the perpetrators and the victim. Be sure to cover the following:
o Gender
o Ethnicity
o Socioeconomic characteristics
o Other relevant diversity issues
· Choose two theories of the causes of crime that have been discussed and analyzed so far in the course; apply those theories to the selected crime. Be sure to cover the following:
o Explain the type of each theory in detail.
o Discuss the development of each theory and the main theorists associated with them.
o Compare the two theories of crime selected. Discuss the ways in which they fit with the crime and the specific demographics associated with the crime.
· Based on your research, develop your own hypothesis of the cause of this crime. Using the theories that you have chosen, you can develop your own “combination” theory.
· Give valid reasons and scholarly, peer-reviewed sources in support of your theory.
You can present your theory in first person; however, be careful not to abuse this privilege.
Your presentation should include the following:
· A title slide and a reference slide (these will not count towards the total number of slides).
· At least five sentences of speaker notes for each section to clarify anything not included in the slides. (As this is a presentation the slides should cover the main points and the details should be covered in the speaker’s notes.) The speaker notes should be properly referenced.
Develop a 10–15-slide presentation in PowerPoint format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

LASA 1: Cultural Autobiography
The purpose of this assignment is to illustrate recognition of your own cultural background and how your worldview has been shaped by your family, role models and life experiences. This autobiography will help you express an appreciation for your own cultural identity and discover potential areas of development.

Begin by defining individuals that you consider family members. This includes, for example, parents or guardians, siblings and/or grandparents. Important information about these individuals includes places of birth, travel (if any), age, spiritual/religious beliefs, occupation, educational history, ethnicity, birth order, etc. In this description include the cultural heritage each individual and summarize the belief system of your family in general, including specific family values, religious and cultural practices, ceremonies, beliefs, and holiday celebrations. If possible, interview these individuals to gain new insight into your cultural heritage.
Next critically evaluate experiences in which you feel have had significant relevance in your multicultural development. Include both positive and negative experiences if applicable.
After looking at these influencing factors, critically examine and discuss who you are as a cultural being, including your racial identity. Think about your own development, functioning, values, behaviors and worldview and how you feel your family history, chosen role models, and experiences have shaped you. Describe how your life would be different had these cultural influences not been there. Be sure to include a description of interpersonal expectations for yourself and lifestyle choices. Finally, having taken a close look at your cultural autobiography, include potential biases which may influence how you interact with others. This could include, for example, favoring individuals of your own heritage or unconscious biases towards a certain cultural group.
Be sure to address each topic listed above and, as appropriate, cite the online course, the textbook, and other credible sources to substantiate the points you are making. For example, when discussing your racial identity please cite sources which you have referenced to better understand what this term means or use the text or lecture to substantiate points you are making about how gender has influenced your cultural development.
This paper should be approximately 4-6 pages
