Reflective Summary

Technology has positively affected the field of human services in my opinion. It has improved services as well as access to benefits. Technology advances has made it easier to reach those who are need and provide services that will meet their needs. The use of mobile technology such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets, allows staff to access information needed to assist clients while out in the field. Technology has also allowed clients the option of applying and managing services and benefits from the privacy of their own homes. This option helps to eliminate the stigma and challenges that are associated with those who apply and receive services and benefits. Technology allows various programs and agencies to collaborate with one another in order to deliver services to their clients more efficiently.
As with almost anything, there will be advantages as well as disadvantages that come along. Technology is rapidly changing and therefore it is important that not only the human service provider but also the client stay up to date with technology, this will allow them to work together much easier. I hope to learn more about the privacy and security issues that come along with the use of technology. I hope to learn ways on how to ensure that I will be able to keep my clients information safe. Another thing that I hope to learn is creative ways to incorporate technology to better serve clients and helping them to meet their…...

...Running head: Client Understanding Client Understanding Paper Letitia Edwards University of Phoenix July 1st, 2013 Professor Boswell Abstract One of the most important responsibilities of accounting personnel is to ensure compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. To ensure compliance, a new employee would need to review the firms’ current financial statements and get clarification if needed. Client Understanding Paper Reorganization of personnel is almost a constant factor with organizations. In terms of the financial statements, new employees/accountants need to gain understanding on company policy of stating transaction. For this paper we wanted to discuss four key factors: Adjusting lower cost of market inventory on valuation, Capitalizing interest on building construction, Recording gain or loss on asset disposal, and Adjusting goodwill for impairment. To explain to the client why this information is important, we will discuss each topic. First we decided which topic we would do our research on, and then we assembled all the data and analysis to create this paper. Adjusting lower cost of market inventory on valuation: Ending inventory in one accounting period will automatically become the beginning inventory for the next. For that reason and others, it is important to keep accurate information. Lower of cost or market refers to the valuation process that may result in an asset that can be reported at an amount...

...My client is fairly familiar with using computers and can handle basic task. She also has some experience with using Access, but only for viewing data she receives from others. Microsoft Word is another program she is used to. She will need some basic lessons in how to use Access to add or edit data. One of her receptionists knows how to do this, so can teach her. I also recommend that she buys a manual or user guide for her and her staff to read to familiarise themselves with the software. She rated her ease at learning new skills as 7. My client can also save data as well as copy it (including to an external hard drive). The receptionists have a similar skill level to Mrs. Johnson, but rated their ease of learning as 8 and 9. They also said that they are able to handle common errors and problems. Two of the vets have some basic computer skills, but only one of them knows how to use Access. The other will need to learn from either my client or the receptionists. They both know how to use Word. The other two vets have nominal computer skills, so will need more extensive lessons on how to use the system. I would recommend that they go on a training course before the new system comes in place. My client is legitimately accustomed through by revenues of computers and can button basic task. He also partakes some experience with expending Excel, but only for broadcasting data she take delivery of from others. Microsoft Word is a not the same plug-in she is used to. She will......

...1) Client A: For Client A I would use the exploratory research as my research design. Exploratory Research entails a very informal research method, in order to gain more background information about the problem. In this case it is said “In these situations we know immediately the problem is that we don’t know what the problem is. There are many possible causes for this slippage.” After gaining their little knowledge of information they have on the cause of the market share to slip 15%, it is clear that this case would be an exploratory research. Also I would use a hypothesis in order to speculate the decline in market share in the past 12 months. Client B: For Client B I would use the Descriptive research design. Descriptive research mostly describes the answers to questions of who, what, where, when, and how. In this case Client B gives us enough information to work from. I would use the cross-sectional study. The cross-sectional study, measures in more of a large population and sample sizes. This study can be beneficial by narrowing down the time period associated with each campaign in each region, and the product category as well. Client C: For Client C I would use the Casual Research method. With Casual research, it mostly focuses on determining what will cause a change in consumer satisfaction, gain in market share, or increases in sales. In this case Client C is trying to determine what factors of their package design (size, shape, color, texture, etc.)to......

Client Paper

...Shahira Turner BSHS /305 CLIENT PAPER 8-3-2014 Eric H. Erickson, a psychoanalyst and expert in adult development, designed the “eight stages of man” model. It is one of many perspectives that is used in human development (Erickson, 1963). (1) According to Erickson, during a person’s life span systemic changes will arise from the time of birth until death, and although we all go through the same developmental stages, individuals experience these stages in different ways. The development of man may be influenced by social context in our lives. Such as home, family and community or an individual may be influenced by personal characteristics of values, traits or childhood experiences. Traditional stages change as society changes and many problems that individuals experience are due to problems of living. But when it comes to individuals who have very serious problems that are not caused by problems of living, it is necessary to classify their problems into identification perspectives. The perspectives are situational, societal or environmental influences that require immediate action and may be long or short termed. Individuals can be subjected to a series of environmental difficulties of a natural disaster such as fire, flooding or earth quake, they may also be subjected to a societal influences such as being homeless due to loss of employment or they may suffer from situational influences of being a victim of a violent crime. Most individuals may have multiple problems......

Client-Based or Client/Serer

...Client-based or client/serer Mashelle Scott IT/240 December 20, 2013 Jennifer Gonzales Client-based or client/serer After reading the scenario I choose a client/server model. Client/server networks employ one or more centralized servers that house critical information that is shared by everyone. Meaning, that it is comprised of a single central computer acting as a server that directs multiple other computers,(clients). They also provide centralized backup, which can be determined by the business. Also as a business expands a client server enables them to reach a shared database program no matter the distance. If there were to be an issue the company could recover the data and resume operations. With client/server model the servers are sometimes clustered in order to provide failover capability in the event hardware failure which avoids downtime and saves the company money. In any situation the decision to employ a client-based or client-server network depends on the business in question. If the company is a small business it may do well without a costly server, as long as there is someone appointed to ensure the backups are performed. As with a bigger business it might be more important to utilize a client-server network for the reason stated above. With a larger company it will be more important in order to provide the security and stability that a client/server network gives. For example, through encryption data can be available only to qualified......

... Client Understanding Paper Jason Green ACC541 2/3/2014 Leslie Crews Client Understanding Paper As a new staff member at the firm, it is important to be able to audit past accounting practices to make sure accounts are in compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). This review is being done to protect our clients and make sure fair reporting and valuation of business is attained. Please provide the requested information based on these following four areas: adjusting lower of cost or market on valuation, capitalizing interest on building construction, recording gain or loss on disposal of an asset, and adjusting goodwill for impairment. Following is a detailed explanation of each of these four areas and an explanation of their importance in fair value of a business. Lower of Cost or Market Lower of cost or market is one approach for inventory valuation that may be preferred by some companies. This methodology accounts for current assets to be valued at the current market rate or purchase price, whichever is lower. The theory behind this is if the value of inventory goes down, it is more than likely that the sale price of such inventory will go down as well (Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey, 2011). One identified issue with this practice is that it revalues assets based on losses on market value but the practice is not consistent with price increases. Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey went on to explain that when there is a sale of inventory "normal......

Client Paper

...Client Paper Tabatha Jones BSHS/305 11/22/2014 Ellen Biros Client Paper In this essay I will be explaining the range of problems facing human services clients today. In the human services field, we run across so many people that are down on their luck, have hit a rough patch, or are just having a hard time providing for themselves or others. It is our goal to take these clients in and take all the negative in life that they are facing and strategize, categorize, and solve whatever problems we are able to. Ultimately coming to us is the first step that they have taken to becoming self-sufficient again, whether they see that or not. And as a human services worker, you have to realize that each client coming in has their own unique needs and goals that they hope to get out of this newfound relationship, and it is our job to do whatever we can to meet these goals, even if it means referring the client elsewhere. Given all of this, I will be only briefly touching on some areas of issues that human services clients face. And to follow, I will explain some of the necessary skills that will help a human services worker progress in helping clients try and resolve these issues. Needs It is estimated that 671,000 people are homeless on any given night, and 1.2 to 2 million people experience homelessness during one year. The numbers of homeless increased in 2008 and 2009 reflecting the economic downturn (National......

...Client Paper Faith Miller BSHS/305 12/13/2014 Catherine Jenkins Client Paper Faith Miller BSHS/305 12/13/2014 Catherine Jenkins The term client has many meanings, in some instances, clients are indviduals, in others the client may be a small group such as a family, or even a larger population such as the residents of a geographic area. Finally, in defining the client, we explore the experiences of getting help from the clients perspective. Sometimes it is difficult for human service professionals who themselves, have never been clients to understand thourghly what it is like to ask for and receive services. The range of problems facing human services clients is an important consideration in defining the client. Problems can come about in many ways such as the developmental theory which approaches problems from the life span perspective and defines then in terms of life crises or tasks that occur during a lifetime. Another would be the situational perspective, which describes problems that occur from accidents and other traumatic points in time. Meeting human needs, both physical and psychological is another approach to explaining the problems that individuals encounter. One theory is that social change has a primary effect on the problems that individuals experience. Lastly, culture may be a critical factor in understanding the problems an individual or group experiences and may present challenges to the human service professional to consider its......

...The first part of establishing a client-server network in the Home Hospice Care building would be establishing where the Access Points would be in the building for the WLAN, because the Windows 2008 server machine that is running Medical Manager is already set-up for the most part. Here is a diagram of the floor plan with the location of where the APs will be set-up. Each AP will be set-up with an omnidirectional antenna, with antenna gain features to ensure that signal is properly spread to all areas of the hospice through walls and other obstacles. I believe a wireless local area network is the best option. Next, the servers for the file managers and three-in-one printer, copier, and fax machine must be set-up. These servers will also be running on Windows 2008 standard. The file machine needs to be its own dedicated box, so that there is no extra delay for managers and employees when files need to be read, wrote, and managed. A print server set-up with one three-in-one machine would be the easiest to set-up and cost-effective as well. This would be beneficial to all employees and easy to set-up on each workstation. Windows 7 Professional edition would be the best idea for each workstation here at the company. Each workstation needs to have its own license purchased, but the benefits of having extended RAM capabilities is critical to the doctors/nurses here. Also, I think 6 notebook workstations would be a good standard for the doctors/nurses. They......

However, we faced the challenge that too many assignments we should finish during the prepare time. That led to our plan disorder in a period. Certainly, we solved this problem after adjust the task schedule. 3. Defining the event According to O' Toole(2012), the first part is defining the event including the brief and expectation, mission, aim and objectives. It conducive to understand the basic information to plan the next step better and to confirm the mission statement to set aims and objectives(Bowdin, 2011). If the purposes of the event cannot be presented clearly in the client brief, the event manager will require to interacts with the customers in order to clarify and explain it(Allen et al, 2011). However, the phase in EMBOK is start from Initiation. Initiation is determining all potential thoughts and identify which is the most suitable for meeting event objectives (Slivers & Nelson, 2009). In the initiation, the concept "may including site and data suggestions, possible sponsors and supporters, a draft budget, possible risks, required management for the event and event logistics"(Allen & O'Toole & Harris & McDonnell, 2011 p158).

Client Paper

...The range of problems that clients face every day are endless. These problems can range from the physical, emotional, mental, financial, or social. When it comes to helping clients there are many helping skills that can be useful in the process. Skills that are used would be client perspective of situations, embarrassment, reluctance to admit, perceptions of helpers, cultural factors, cost of services, transportation, time, and fear. Using helping skills are crucial in the helping process. The client’s perspective of the situation is very important in the helping process. Many clients may lack resources, skills, or even both to solve their problems. Clients and helpers may disagree about client’s situations. Clients that recognize the existence of problems are not guaranteed to seek help. Clients who consider their problems too difficult to solve, too overwhelming, or too embarrassing to admit are less likely to seek professional help. Often clients perceive seeking help as a burden or waste of time. The nature of problems in living involves a reluctance to admitting to having problems. Men are less likely to seek help because they are socialized to solve problems on their own. When it comes to the perception of human services professionals, helpers are viewed as strangers and experts. This requires individuals to talk about personal matters with someone unknown to them. A “stranger” evokes distrust and suspicion in our society. Fears of the stranger and expert are......

Resistant Client

...Hus 2302 A resistant client is a patient of professional psychological counseling who present a defiant or unwilling attitude in response to therapeutic assistance. A client may avoid counseling attempts for various reasons including a fear of intimacy or revelation, an unwillingness to face personal truths, a lack of interest in counseling. The ambivalence of reluctant clients to engage in the helping relationship can negatively affect the counseling, the need to block anxiety inducing awareness from the conscious mind. A tendency toward self destruction or low self-esteem. Other clients may be reluctant because of past experiences with counselors and agencies. These experiences may have been positive, and now the client is hesitant about starting over, negative, or even damaging. Perhaps too little resistance may be indicative of lack of progress. Handle issues of resistance systematically for the client’s own well-being process and outcome. The first step for the helper is to explore the reason for reluctance. Many people from different groups have an ingrained self-protective mistrust of white-controlled institution. Reluctance may also emanate from shame, embarrassment, or fear of exposure of secrets such as substance abuse or physical abuse. Many people fear the counselor’s indirect or direct judgment. For example a gay or lesbian couple may be uncomfortable sharing with a heterosexual helper their concerns about having a child together. Some people may be......

Client Understanding

...Client Understanding Paper ACC/541 January 30, 2012 Client Understanding Paper Dear Sir: In order to ensure that your organization is following the FASB’s generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) it is necessary that I review the current practices being used by your organization with regards to lower of cost or market valuation, capitalizing interest on building construction, recording gain or loss on asset disposal, and adjusting for goodwill impairment. It is important for me to know that you and your organization understand the importance of understanding how these issues affect the reliability of your financial statements. I will briefly explain the impact and shortcomings that each of the listed items have on your financial statements and the importance of ensuring that these items are correctly accounted for. GAAP maintains that when the value of inventories go down so does the future selling price and the anticipated losses should be reported in the same period as the inventory value decline. The lower of cost or market (LCM) should be used by your organization to value inventories. The AICPA has stated that market (current replacement cost) should not be greater than the net realizable value and market should not be less than net realizable value reduced by an allowance for an approximately normal profit margin. In other words, reducing the value of inventory to market value when its cost exceeds its expected benefit gives a better measure of its......
