PHI210 Assignment 2: Problem Solving

When faced with a problem, what do you do to solve it? This assignment asks you to apply a six-step to problem solving process to a specific problem scenario. You will write a paper that presents a synthesis of your ideas about solving the problem using this systematic approach. As Voltaire said, “No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.”

Choose one (1) of the problem scenarios as a topic choice for your paper (Note: Your professor must approve your topic choice before you begin work on the assignment.)

Scenario 1: You have worked at your company for eleven (11) years. You have returned to college to earn a Bachelor’s degree in order to increase your chances for a promotion. You are nearly finished with your degree, when a supervisor’s position in a competing company becomes available in another state. The start date is in two (2) weeks, during your final exam period for your courses. The position offers a $15,000 per year salary increase, a car allowance, and relocation expenses. Your former supervisor works for the company and is recommending you for the position based on your outstanding job performance; if you want the job, it’s yours. All of the other supervisors at this level in the company have Master’s degrees, so you know that you would be expected to earn your Bachelor’s degree and continue on to a Master’s degree. Your present company offers tuition reimbursement, but the new company does not.

Scenario 2: Your child comes home from school with an assignment sheet for a school project. He / she is very excited about the project and begins work immediately, doing research on the Internet and gathering materials. You read over the assignment sheet and notice that your child is not including all of the required items in the project, and you have some ideas for how to improve the quality of the presentation. You recently read an article in a parenting magazine about the importance of a child developing responsibility for his/ her own learning. You recall the many ways in which your parents took over your school projects. You, on the other hand, want to encourage your child’s confidence in his / her ability to complete a project independently. The next day, you are at the grocery store when you see a parent of a student in your child’s class. That parent has spent over $30 in supplies for the science project and is taking a day off of work to put the pieces of the project together.

Scenario 3: You have two jobs—one during the week from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and one on Saturday from 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm. You are taking two classes—one that meets from 6:00 to 10:00 pm, and one class online. You have two kids—one who plays soccer, and one who is in band. You have two elderly parents who no longer drive. You have two siblings—one who lives two (2) miles away, and one who lives in another state. You have two (2) papers due in your classes the same week that one (1) of your children has a soccer tournament, and the other child has a band concert. You are coaching the soccer team, and you are in charge of fundraising for the band. You have a goal to complete your degree in two (2) years. Your doctor tells you that your blood pressure, your cholesterol, and your weight are too high and recommends several medications that cost you nearly $200 per month after your insurance co-pay.

Scenario 4: You are a sales representative for a company that encourages staff to log time in the field and away from the office. You are expected to begin and end your day at the office. You notice that each day when you arrive and return another co-worker is already there, and you wonder whether this person spends most of his / her time at the office. At your weekly sales meeting, you are informed of your co-workers’ outstanding sales performance. You suspect that this co-worker is spending more time flattering the boss instead of working leads in the field, and as a result is getting the best client referrals. Your own sales numbers have steadily decreased since this other sales representative was hired.

Scenario 5: Professor’s Choice – problem scenario presented by your professor.

Scenario 6: Student’s Choice – Problem scenario presented by you.

Review the six-step problem solving process outlined in the webtext, based on the article “The Problem Solving Process” located at

·         Step One: Define the problem

·         Step Two: Analyze the problem

·         Step Three: Generate options

·         Step Four: Evaluate options

·         Step Five: Make your decision

·         Step Six: Implement and reflect

Write a four (4-5) page paper in which you:

1. Define the problem in the scenario that you have chosen.

2. Analyze the problem in the scenario.

3. Generate options for solving the problem in the scenario.

4. Evaluate the options for solving the problem.

5. Decide on the best option for solving the problem.

6. Explain how you will implement the decision made and reflect on whether this option was the most effective.

The paper should follow guidelines for clear and organized writing:

·         Include an introductory paragraph and concluding paragraph.

·         Address main ideas in body paragraphs with a topic sentence and supporting sentences.

·         Adhere to standard rules of English grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and spelling.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

·         Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

·         Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

                When I went to the cite, I first selected the Explore Careers section and saw that there were assessments available; since I am currently also taking psychometrics: test and measurements, I was interested in this feature (careeronestop, n.d.). I took the interest assessment first and it gave me 78 total results and listed 53 of those as the ‘best match’ (careeronestop, n.d.). I found that this was not very helpful overall because they ranged from entry level jobs to doctoral level and included architecture teachers, psychologist, and tour guides (careeronestop, n.d.). I like that this feature allows you to see so many career options, including those you hadn’t considered, but at the same time it could overwhelm someone who is looking there for help.

                When searching the Find Training section, I did run into some problems but also found useful information (careeronestop, n.d.). I tried to find trainings or programs near me that were about autism or applied behavioral analysis but there were no results. I generalized to psychology and only colleges and their 4 year programs populated (careeronestop, n.d.). However, there was a professional development option and when I searched ABA it did recommend some very legitimate organizations relating to behavior therapy and autism (careeronestop, n.d.).

                I went to the salary information page and was very disappointed (careeronestop, n.d.). I tried looking up autism, registered behavioral technician, behavior technician, positive behavior support specialist, and behavior with no avail. It appears they have no information on what I do now, RBT, or what I will do when I graduate, PBSS. I finally just generalized to psychologist in the salary search. This brought up a chart that listed what the top psychologist make, the middle, and the lowest (careeronestop, n.d.). This listed as psychologist all other, it did not differentiate on type, specialty, or where they work and it also listed the statistic as the entire U.S., not by state or region (careeronestop, n.d.).

                Overall, I was not very impressed with the website (careeronestop, n.d.). I felt that there was a lot, and I mean almost too much, information that was too broad, not enough specifics or details. I felt that they touched on the topic of jobs in the lightest sense but did not delve into the specialties of the field. I feel that so much broad information and lacking in specifics could confuse someone searching for employment or career guidance even more. Even though I am a big proponent for doing almost everything online, I feel that for a lot of people having a person help sort through and weed out some options and making suggestions could be a big help. Even though careeronestop has a lot of information and helpful aspects, I really feel that O’NET or the BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook are much more helpful when it comes to getting information on careers.

6:24pmNov 2 at 6:24pmManage Discussion EntryNiles and Harris-Bowlsbey (2017) explain that one-stop career centers have many advantages. For example, individuals can create and continuously add to their E-portfolios where resumes and other important career-related documents can be sent to potential employers (2017). Another advantage of online one-stop career centers is that the database can be frequently and easily updated to reflect changes in career information (2017).
Using the Career One Stop (2017) I researched the occupation of vocational counselor. Career One Stop (2017) has an Occupation Profile for each career listed on the website. The Occupation Profiles consist of descriptions, videos, outlooks, projected employment, wages, education and experience, knowledge, activities, skills, abilities, and related occupations (2017). I was extremely interested in the career video; however, it seemed very outdated and was not interesting to watch. The skills and abilities sections were quite vague, but the knowledge and activities sections provided in-depth information that was relatively informative and answered a few questions I still had. I appreciated the information provided in the projected employment section, but the one sentence provided in the job outlook section was not helpful. I think the information regarding training in local areas was especially helpful, in addition to the license information and requirements that are posted. I believe that the interview and negotiation sections on the website would be extremely helpful for those searching for their first career or those changing career fields and would like to be better prepared for interviews.

HN300-01 Unit 6 Discussion Board Post

Good Evening,

I need help with the following Unit 6 Discussion Board Post:




Healthcare Policy


One policy area that lends itself well to community practice is that of health care. The Affordable Care Act has made major changes to the availability and provision of healthcare in the United States in recent years. For your discussion:


·         Use the internet and the Kaplan Library to identify articles that discuss the number of individuals in your state who are currently uninsured. Be sure to compare numbers from before and after the most recent health care policy was passed.


·         Then use the internet and The Kaplan Library to identify articles that discuss health care policy. On the internet, the  website is a good place to start.


·         How has policy impacted health care? Be sure to reference the information you found and be detailed in your explanation.

·         Identify one issue related to health care that can be addressed at a community or macro level.


·         Identify the various problem solving systems (from your text) that would be important in resolving or improving this issue.



·         Finally, discuss skills and techniques that might be used in community practice and in resolving this issue.



Thank You
