Discussion 2: Sources Of Knowledge

Social workers make decisions in practice settings based on different sources of knowledge, including their intuitionpersonal experiencestraditionauthority, and theories and research evidence. These sources of knowledge can be used together to contribute to decisions. Which source(s) of knowledge do you rely on? What are the strengths and limitations of each source of knowledge, and how will they affect your social work practice? For example, think about the sources of knowledge you used when you made decisions in your field experience. In this Discussion, you consider the sources of knowledge that inform your practice decisions.

To prepare: Complete the “Situations 1 and 2: Making Decisions About Interventions” handout. (Note: You do not need to upload the handout to the Discussion forum. The handout is intended to assist you in writing your Discussion post.)

Discussion: How Theory And Research Are Connected

In this discussion, you will examine how Bandura’s bobo doll experiment informed the development of social learning theory. You will also identify limitations in the design of the study. You might be surprised to learn that the study has limitations due to its important and sustaining contribution to the field of psychology. Keep in mind that while most researchers strive to design the best study they can, no study is perfect. This is why almost every journal article you read has a specific heading or section dedicated to study limitations. Fortunately, the limitations of one study often result in several additional studies, which often address those limitations.

To prepare

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources on theory development, research, and Bandura’s bobo doll experiment.
  • Consider how research informs theory development and, in particular, Bandura’s social learning theory.
  • Identify the limitations of the bobo doll experiment and think about potential studies that could be conducted to address the limitations. (https://www.simplypsychology.org/bobo-doll.html )
  • Review several studies that interest you from the APA’s Research in Action web page. Consider how these practical applications could also inform theory. (http://www.apa.org/action/resources/research-in-action/index.aspx )

By Day 4

Post a response to the following:

Explain how research informs theory development using the bobo doll experiment as an example. Then, select one of the limitations of the study (listed on the Bobo Doll Experiment website) and briefly describe a study that could address that limitation.

Note: Support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and any additional sources you identify using both in-text citations and references. It is strongly recommended that you include proper APA format and citations.

Please use both references that is attached to this assignment. Below is the citation:

What Is The Diagnosis For Kristopher

The Case of Kristopher

Kristopher is a 14-year-old boy who was recently accused by a female classmate of forcing her to have sex with him. He claimed that she agreed to have sex with him and then became angry because he went out with other girls. Kristopher is known as a bully and often fights with other students. He was removed from his biological mother’s home when he was 4-years-old because she was unresponsive when he was repeatedly abused by her boyfriend. Kristopher was adopted by his current parents when he was 7-years-old after he had lived in a series of foster homes. He was a known charmer. Despite his charm, however, he had difficulty controlling his temper and seemed to take pleasure in being cruel to other children and animals.

During the next few years, Kristopher’s adoptive parents tried to help him. They worked with the school to help him control his temper and provided him with therapy. However, his behavior became increasingly difficult to manage. He frequently lied and sometimes stole money from his mother. He began to spend time with other adolescents who were known to use drugs. His school performance, which had never been satisfactory, deteriorated even further. Soon after he was accused of the sexual assault, he ran away from home but was caught by police and arrested.
