Human sexuality

Steve has asked his girlfriend Nadia to marry him. They dated for a year after meeting in college at a fraternity party. Nadia has been sexually intimate with one other boyfriend, while Steve has had multiple partners.  Both are American, but Nadia’s grandparents are originally from Egypt. Despite different religious backgrounds (Steve is Methodist; Nadia was raised as a Muslim) and cultures, they have a lot in common and both sets of parents are very happy about their engagement. As part of their preparation, they have begun premarital counseling. As Steve and Nadia’s counselor, you know that a discussion of sexuality will be important to their marital success.

  • Describe the important aspects of sexuality (such as arousal and response, intimacy, contraception, etc.) that Nadia and Steve need to discuss. Remember to consider psychological/emotional as well as physical factors.
  • Include a discussion of at least 1 theoretical perspective that you have learned about in this course (e.g., Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love, Masters and Johnson’s work, etc.).
  • What risk factors pertaining to health can you infer might be present from the scenario? What can the couple do to minimize these risks?
  • How will you show cultural competence during your sessions (i.e., what cultural issues should you consider)?

Performance ranking

Read the following article:

Safavi, K. S. (2006). The measurement conundrum. Journal of Healthcare

Management, 51(5), 287–290.

In the article, Safavi (2006, p. 290) asks: “Is the goal to establish relative rank or absolute levels of performance?” Safavi also states that the basic dilemma in selecting a measurement system is whether “to judge performance from the outside or to improve performance from the inside” (p. 287).

Discuss the following from the perspective of a provider:

  • Assuming the measurement system is intended to judge the performance from outside, evaluate the use of a standard based on relative rank and absolute levels of performance. Which one would you use? Why or why not?
  • Assuming the measurement system is intended to judge the performance from inside, evaluate the use of a standard based on relative rank and absolute levels of performance. Which one would you use? Why or why not?
  • How will different circumstances impact performance measurement when it is based on relative rank and absolute levels? Support with examples.

The pseudo code

The next structure you will investigate is the Hash table and its methods implemented in pseudo code when linked lists are used to handle collisions.

The task this week is to complete the pseudo code for the following hash table operations:

  1. Insert
  2. Remove

Assume Hashtable is a simple array of size 8, with indices 0..7. Numeric keys are mapped by a Hashfunction that gives the mod(8,n) value for any key “n” yielding the Hashtable index for that key (0..7). A Hashtable entry is null unless a key exists with that index as its hashed index; if so, the Hashtable entry points to the first node of a linked list of keys with that hash index. The last node on this linked list has a null reference for the next referenced node. Assume the occurrence of a linked list node is represented by the object “Node” and its “Data” and “NextRef” attributes.

Week 2 Deliverables:

  • 1 pseudo code implementation of each Hash table operation: Insert and Remove
  • Fully documented pseudo code.
