For more course tutorials visit www.newtonhelp.com

Have you ever behaved in a way that went against a belief or value that you have? Why did this happen? What influenced your behavior in that moment? When we understand our own reasons for going against our beliefs or values, we are better able to understand how this may happen with offenders. This assignment asks you to apply attribution theory and cognitive dissonance theory to a situation in which this type of behavior may occur with offenders, and how that may influence their rehabilitative process. Create a brief case scenario of a situation in which an offender made a decision to engage in a behavior that violated his or her values, beliefs, attitudes, or morals. Create a 10- to 12-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation in which you analyze your case scenario. Include the following: • Describe the situation and the individual's behavior in the case scenario.


• Analyze the possible explanations for the individual's behavior using attribution theory. • Describe the relationship between behavior and attitudes in this situation. • Explain how cognitive dissonance theory applies to this situation, and how it may influence recidivism. • Describe how this offender's attitude and behavior may influence the efficacy of the support services delivered. Include at least three references. Include detailed speaker notes for each slide. Format any citations in your presentation according to APA guidelines. Submit your presentation to the Assignment Files tab. ==============================================

Influences from people's social environments have an effect on their beliefs and behaviors, but they may not understand that influence.

Imagine your team has been asked to create a training on the role of social influences in offender rehabilitation for new support services staff. The intent of this training is to provide a base knowledge of this

Create a 10- to 12-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation to utilize in the training. Include the following: • Describe the concepts of conformity, obedience, group membership, group conflict, and group decision making. • Describe examples of these concepts occurring during support services. • Explain how the group influenced individual decision making in your examples. • Describe how social relationships developed or changed because of the group interactions in your examples • Explain how to navigate address these situations when they may occur. Include a minimum of three sources. Include detailed speaker notes for each slide. Do NOT repeat slide information in speaker notes, different with citations.
