CASE STUDY INSTRUCTIONS
About 15% of premarital couples report as “Conflicted” couples. The goal of this assignment is to evaluate the provided case study on a “Conflicted” couple and to submit a clinical analysis to support this couple. This will require addressing 3 main areas: (1) identifying the key strengths and weaknesses between the couple, (2) discussing how the couple’s personalities might be influencing the situation, (3) developing a strategy to counsel, and potentially support, the couple.
Your paper must be 9–12 pages (not including title page and references) and must include at least 1 research-based approach from 8 scholarly sources. You must utilize course materials, research and the Bible. This amounts to about 3 pages per section. Your paper must also include section headings clearly identifying the 3 required areas of concern outlined below.

Identify Key Areas (strengths and weaknesses)—This section must explore the overall case study and must clearly identify the problems at hand. Do not simply label the issues; explore the implications of the identified problems and how they might contribute to the overall conflicted relationship of the couple. Remember to review the couple’s background and other factors that may contribute to conflict. The case study contains significant data. Be sure to explore it thoroughly. Understanding this will provide the platform on which to counsel the couple. A subsection of this area must be focused on identifying the couple strengths.

Personalities—This section must explore the 5 dimensions of the SCOPE personality assessment section and must discuss how these results could contribute to the conflict as well as the recovery of the relationship.
Action Plan—This section must outline a realistic approach to counseling to the couple, utilizing clinically-based resources. This must be based upon your actual…...

...Case Study Tresa Jellison HCS/483 November 12, 2012 Dr. Kaderie Case Study The basic IT implementation process is the whole process of setting up and running an IT based program for a company. It starts from the beginning to the end of the process and throughout the whole process even after the last step has been taken. You have the planning stage, and this will include what exactly what you are looking for and what you want the program to do and how it will operate. Who will be using this program and who will it be beneficial to. You will have to go and get bids or quotes from companies that can provide this type of service. Depending on what is being implemented you have to do weeks, months and even years of research to ensure that the program will benefit everyone involved and that time and money is not being wasted. A lot of the things that were done are this analysis did not follow the fundamentals of implementation. During the execution of the program there where many bugs that had to be fixed that could have been prevented if the right questions and queries where ran before going live. There should have been a trial or practice run before the whole system went live. And they should have not done it at all of the sites. Only a couple of the sites should have had the program and should have been using it to get the bugs out. There were way off budget and there were a lot of hidden details that should have been reported. At least this way there would......

...Case Study 7-1: Prosperity Painting Equipment (p. 232)  Instructions: Use the following framework for your case analysis. Your case analysis assignment is designated above and can be found in your textbook.  Step 1: Read the case thoroughly with a view to understanding the international marketing issue illustrated by the case. Make sure you discriminate between information which is relevant and that which is superfluous and/or ambiguous. Then select and apply relevant theoretical marketing models from the text.  Step 2: Define clearly and concisely the basic problems in the case (some of the questions may already be formulated for you, but these questions are only a guide and do not necessarily cover all the basic problems). Then identify the main issues (for example, increased international competition, changes in underlying consumer tastes, etc.). Do not be confused with "symptoms" --for example, declining market share, lower profitability...these kinds of things are usually symptoms rather than the root cause or problem. Identify the key decisions to be made (for example, how to expand internationally, or how to position the product, or how to increase international competitiveness, etc.).  Step 3: Use the information and facts provided in the case to analyze the situation. This would include understanding the market, demand (buyer) competiton, company strengths and weaknesses, external opportunities and threats (SWOT analysis), etc.  Step 4: Based on your......

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

The NRCLD staff worked with the six Regional Resource Centers (RRCs) to identify potential sites and solicit school participation. More than 60 schools across the country initially were considered, and information from 41 of those schools was submitted. The NRCLD research staff reviewed the extensive amount of information submitted and judged that 19 of those schools were engaging in one or more commendable RTI practices based on a review of the following six components of an RTI service-delivery model: • School-wide screening. Screening is a type of assessment characterized by quick, low cost, repeatable testing of critical academic skills or behaviors and can be administered by individuals with minimal amounts of training. A screening measures whether a student should be judged at risk. If a student meets the criteria for at-risk status, he or she is considered for more......

...Case Study Southwestern University Southwestern University (SWU), a large stage college in Stephenville, Texas, 20 miles southwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, enrolls close to 20,000 students. In a typical town-gown relationship, the school is a dominant force in the small city, with more students during fall and spring than permanent residents. A longtime football powerhouse, SWU is a member for the Big Eleven conference and is usually in the top 20 in college football rankings. To bolster its chances of reaching the elusive and long-desired number-one ranking, in 2001, SWU hired the legendary BoPitterno as its head coach. One of Pitterno’s demands on joining SWU had been a new stadium. With attendance increasing, SWU administrators began to face the issue head-on. After 6 months of study, much political arm wrestling, and some serious financial analysis, Dr. Joel Wisner, president of Southwestern University, had reached a decision to expand the capacity at its on-campus stadium. Adding thousands of seats, including dozens of luxury skyboxes, would not please everyone. The influential Pitterno had argued the need for a first-class stadium, one with built-in dormitory rooms for his players and a palatial office appropriate for the coach of a future NCAA champion team. But the decision was made, and everyone, including the coach, would learn to live with it. The job now was to get construction going immediately after the 2007......

McShane 5 . 1 CA SE S T U DY The Regency Grand Hotel is a five-star hotel in Bangkok. The hotel was established 15 years ago by a local consortium of investors and has been operated by a Thai general manager throughout this time. The Regency is one of Bangkok’s most prestigious hotels and its 700 employees enjoy the status of being associated with the hotel. The hotel provides good employee benefits, above-market rate salaries and job security. In addition, a good year-end bonus amounting to four months salary is rewarded to employees regardless of the hotel’s overall performance during the year. Recently, the Regency was sold to a large American hotel chain that was very keen to expand its operations into Thailand. When the acquisition was announced, the general manager decided to take early retirement once the hotel changed ownership. The American hotel chain kept all the Regency’s employees, although a few were transferred to other positions. John Becker, an American with 10 years management experience with the hotel chain, was appointed as the new general manager of the Regency. Becker was selected as the new general manager because of his previous successes in integrating newly acquired hotels in the United States. In most of the previous acquisitions, Becker took over......

...(source 1) According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the construction industry leads all other industrial divisions in the number of nonfatal injuries or illnesses.(source 3) In 1994 the U.S. Bureau of Labor also estimated that more than 218,000 lost-time injuries, requiring missed work or restricted work, occurred in the construction industry and in some cases these injuries have been reported to last a considerable amount of time.(source 3) In construction there are many jobs that cause musculoskeletal disorders. Equipment Operators in the construction field experience more of the effects due to vibrations they encounter every day for extended amounts of time. These vibrations are a major cause of the musculoskeletal disorders and postural stress among these workers. People need to know the facts and consequences that go along with whole body vibration faced by equipment operators. They need to know how it affects the operator, how it really limits them physically in the long term. More testing could reduce the stats of these illnesses and create a better work environment for these workers. Previous studies indicate that operators of heavy construction equipment are afflicted by musculoskeletal injuries of the arms, shoulders, neck, and lower back.(source 2) These injuries appear to be due to excessive periods of sitting (static posture), work intensity, whole body vibration, high resistance levers, repetitive motions, and awkward postures.(source 2) ......

Why is the new grid computing system at Advance America much easier to install, manage, and maintain than its old system? In the older system of Advance America each of the centers had their own software and hardware installed in their premises, and every night all the centers around the country you to send their data to the main hub. Because of the growing numbers of the data and the centers around the country there was not enough time for all the data to be transferred to the main system plus the maintenance cost of the older system was much higher. In the new system Advance America switched to grid computing. “Grid computing is the collection of computer resources from multiple locations to reach a common goal.”{1} They installed a Client machine in every center which connects to the Web from a fault-tolerant server running Oracle database software.

...Chapter I BACKGROUND OF THE CASE   THE EE 304 CHEATING INCIDENT Those cadets who collaborated on the EE 304 examination knew beyond any doubt that such action was prohibited. Although they may not have believed that their conduct made them morally corrupt or dishonorable, they knew it was wrong. Their action cannot be excused. But to place full blame on these cadets is to ignore institutional factors which contributed significantly to such a "choice." inadequacies in the Honor System, in the Academy environment which was to have supported this System, and in the administration of the EE 304 examination combined to make a cheating incident practically inevitable. A. Honor System Perhaps the most fundamental of the Honor System's inadequacies has been the expansion of the Code well beyond its intended purpose. Cadets have been found guilty for isolated conduct which cannot fairly be characterized as having made them dishonorable. Recently, for example, a cadet who reported himself for stating that he had done 20 sit-ups, when in fact he had done only 18, was found guilty of violating the Honor Code. A similar incident had occurred in 1970. in July of 1974, a new cadet who reported himself for telling his squad leader, who "did not remember the particular incident," that he had shaved, when in fact he had not, was separated. In 1975, a third classman was found guilty by the Cadet Honor Committee of "intentionally deceiving" in that "he wore a second class dress coat to a...
