Critical Thinking: How much stress is too much? The level of stress a person can experience before it does harm to the human body remains an important question. In a study of medical students, many working between 70-80 hours per week, nearly half suffered from extremely high levels of stress. In general, the more hours worked, the greater the level of stress experienced by the student. Higher levels of stress often corresponded with unhealthy coping strategies, including drug and alcohol abuse (Kasi et al., 2007) In addition, the study found that the students’ stress level also put their patients at risk. Stressed residents were more likely to make errors and to compromise patient care (Pitt et al., 2004).

AUCS 340: Ethics in the Professions Medical Ethics Case Study You work as a registered nurse in a busy urban emergency department. Today you are caring for an adorable four-year old female patient who presents with a broken right arm and several bruises around her abdomen. You suspect that this patient is a victim of accidental trauma (child abuse). If you report your suspicions to the proper authorities, your state laws mandate that the child be removed from the care of the parents until an investigation of the allegation is complete. You know that this may take up to a week. Answer the following questions. 1) What type of ethical problem is this professional facing and why? 2) What steps should this medical professional take and why? 3) What would be the result of the nurse’s actions if this child is found to have a genetic problem and it is not a case of child abuse? 4) Are there other types of professionals who may also be required to report cases of suspected child abuse? If yes, what type of professional would that be? 5) What would you do in this situation?

Sex, Gender, and Popular Culture Spring 2015 Look through popular magazines, and see if you can find advertisements that objectify women in order to sell a product. Alternately, you may use an advertisement on television (but make sure to provide a link to the ad so I can see it!). Study these images then write a paper about objectification that deals with all or some of the following: • What effect(s), if any, do you think the objectification of women’s bodies has on our culture? • Jean Kilbourne states “turning a human being into a thing is almost always the first step toward justifying violence against that person.” What do you think she means by this? Do you agree with her reasoning? Why or why not? • Some people would argue that depicting a woman’s body as an object is a form of art. What is your opinion of this point of view? Explain your reasoning. • Why do you think that women are objectified more often than men are? • How does sexualization and objectification play out differently across racial lines? • Kilbourne explains that the consequences of being objectified are different – and more serious – for women than for men. Do you agree? How is the world different for women than it is for men? How do objectified images of women interact with those in our culture differently from the way images of men do? Why is it important to look at images in the context of the culture? • What is the difference between sexual objectification and sexual subjectification? (Ros Gill ) • How do ads construct violent white masculinity and how does that vision of masculinity hurt both men and women? Throughout your written analysis, be sure to make clear and specific reference to the images you selected, and please submit these images with your paper. Make sure you engage with and reference to at least 4 of the following authors: Kilbourne, Bordo, Hunter & Soto, Rose, Durham, Gill, Katz, Schuchardt, Ono and Buescher. Guidelines:  Keep your content focused on structural, systemic, institutional factors rather than the individual: BE ANALYTICAL NOT ANECDOTAL.  Avoid using the first person or including personal stories/reactions. You must make sure to actively engage with your readings: these essays need to be informed and framed by the theoretical material you have been reading this semester.  Keep within the 4-6 page limit; use 12-point font, double spacing and 1-inch margins.  Use formal writing conventions (introduction/thesis statement, body, conclusion) and correct grammar. Resources may be cited within the text of your paper, i.e. (Walters, 2013).
