Threats to Emotional Objectivity Essay
Consider a series of potential threats to your objectivity and write an essay response. Consider the following:
- How might your own social roles (e.g., son, daughter, mother, father, student, ex-husband or wife, caretaker, etc.) be a source of interference and loss of objectivity when encountering certain individuals or specific problems in your workplace? (Please be certain to discuss your specific faith belief system in this section, as that tends to be a significant part of one’s identity).
- Identify at least 2 “themes” or “issues” that arouse an emotional response (i.e., frustration, anger, disappointment, exasperation, overwhelming sadness, etc.) in you. For example, themes of emotional dependency, victimization, anger-management problems, irresponsibility, poor moral choices, authority, etc. Then discuss how these themes might interfere with your ability to remain objective while encountering a person presenting with similar concerns. Again, please comment on how this may or may not interfere with your faith beliefs. You may choose to use each of these three questions as separate subheadings in your essay.
The essay should be 3-4 pages of text, plus a title page and reference page. No abstract needed. Paper should be in proper APA format. Please remember proper in-text citations. Please review the APA publication manual or Purdue OWL website as a resource
