We know that many types of data fall into a normal distribution

We know that many types of data fall into a normal distribution, with most of the observations falling toward the middle. However, sometimes there are outliers, or data points that are very different (i.e., larger or smaller) from the others in the sample.

An example from psychology would be Mensa, which requires 98th percentile on a valid, normed test of intelligence for admission. Mensa members are therefore outliers, although some are more so than others. Review the Slate article on the New England Patriots from the module resources, Another Data Point, for an example of an outlier in the real world.

Choose an example of an outlier in the real world and discuss its effect. When responding to your classmates’ posts, evaluate the effects of their chosen outliers.

Theories allow social workers to gain insight how and why people do the things they do, and illustrates the nature of the behavior (Robbins, Chatterjee, & Canda, 2012).  People do not come to social workers if they are having a great day. Social workers are to empower and create positive change for others. There are many aspects to take into consideration by gathering information and theories. Theories present underlying issues that are demonstrated by the person’s behavior. Therefore, a theory is vital for social workers to be able to identify. A given theory can allow social workers to organize observations and gather meaningful information (Beder, 2000).

While reviewing this week’s recourses the theory that appeals to me the most is the macro level. Research indicates that the macro level theories demonstrate a balance that is abstract and general to effectively present structure and functioning within large entities such as societies, cultures and communities (Robbins, Chatterjee, & Canda, 2012).  This theory can be applied towards educating and providing awareness about issues that are creating social problems within large entities. This applies to me more as an up and coming social worker since I have recently been facilitating groups and I have observed how powerful groups can be within communities. While facilitating groups you can visually see others responses towards the information that is provided while encouraging and engaging others to participate. So far I have facilitated inpatient and outpatient substance abuse group that has been an enriching experience to create such a tremendous impact to encourage and empower others. This theory type is best for me since I have had the opportunity to work on this level and been able to effectively encourage others within larger entities.

Salas, Sen, and Segal (2010) describe Critical Theory as a “call for social action.” Critical Theory involves an examination of our society and the identification of the differences in the social order of individuals and how it divides society into the haves (the people in power) and have-nots (the oppressed). Critical Theory asserts that by identification and understanding of this divide, social change can be enacted. The authors remind us that because the focus of this theory is, ultimately, social and individual empowerment, it flows across other theories (i.e. Feminist and Empowerment Theory).


My area of interest is forensic social work. I like working with those involved in the criminal justice system and would like to work within the jail and prison systems. In these settings, the social worker is engaged with individuals at the lowest end of the power differential. These are people have lost most of their rights and freedom. People of color, already at the lower end of the power differential in this country, are further marginalized by the penal system, prompting some scholars to purport that the prison system is the new plantation (Brewer & Heitzig, 2008). As a social worker in this setting, I would utilize the Critical Theory ideology of getting the needs of the individual met. Whether that need is getting an education, mental health support, or a support system outside of the prison, the social worker can affect change and empowerment of these individuals.


Critical Theory is not only concerned with the needs of the individual, however. Another goal of this theory is to empower the individual in a way that is going to be beneficial to society (Salas, Sen, & Segal, 2010). This ideology is what makes this theory appropriate for working with the prison population. In meeting the needs of these individuals, society benefits from reduced recidivism and crime rates over the long term. The individuals, it is hoped, go on to be productive and healthy members of society rather than re-offenders constantly using up resources in our courtrooms and penal facilities.

Psychopharmacological is used in mental health due to the increase of mental health issues that are related to substance abuse, alcohol or factors that contribute to mental health issues that cause for the increase dependence of medications that that accompany treatment with modality, ethical, efficient, and effective practice (Dziegielwski, 2011).  Even in the mental health setting, where there are social workers it is imperative to require knowledge of the intervention of psychopharmacological treatments, their interactions and the effects related to the psychopharmacological interventions.



The psychopharmacological interventions has become important even when being implemented with dependent children of the court (foster children) due to the trauma  in their lives, which mental health is involved in providing services, which involves the social workers working with mental health professional that require knowledge of medications that is being provided to the aforementioned children.  This is why is important for psychopharmacology in mental health services to be knowledgeable and be aware of how medication can affect people based upon their diagnosis (Preston, O’Neal and Talaga, 2017.

An example of a psychopharmacological interventions is needed can be with a Bipolar client. A client with Bipolar disorder can benefit from the combination of medication and counseling to treat their symptoms and begin the process of counseling. Clients who have a combination of psychopharmacological interventions and counseling have better outcomes and long lasting treatment results (Laureate Education, 2012). The clinician works closely with the psychiatrist and prescribing physician to better manage the disorder with mood-stabilizing drugs that aids the client from feeling the highs of mania and the lows of depression.

The mental health professional’s role is to provide collaborative care, counseling and medication management. Other roles that the clinician can take are, to be an organizer, participant or consultant. Counselors should be present in meetings and serve as facilitators.

The example I provided in week one discussion is the example of a substance abuse counselor. As a substance abuse counselor treating opiate addiction with Methadone Maintenance Therapy (MMT), we frequently have to coordinate care through the use of information releases where the sharing of the patients health information is vital to their recovery and in some cases their lives.

Coordinating care with patients primary care physicians, or psychiatrists where benzodiazepam prescriptions can be given to patients is important information when those prescriptions can interfere with their MMT. The combination of methadone and benzodiazepam can be deadly. This is why providers who prescribe this medication need to made aware that their patient is also receiving treatment for opiate addiction. At times providers may not be willing to share this information expeditiously, at that point the patients MMT can be delayed placing the patient at a higher risk for relapse. When this situation occurs, at my place of employment we have determined best practice for the patient is to plan ahead for situations such as these by ensuring all releases are in order ahead of time to prepare for information delays, and running prescription medication checks on patients to verify that patients are not filling prescriptions  from providers without disclosing the information.

One of the areas I would like to explore further is addiction, and trauma and how they relate to psychopharmacology. As my LCSW concentration will be with trauma victims, and addiction can related to untreated traumatic experiences.
