Background information:
Consider the following from the American Psychological Association’s Resolution on Affirming Psychologists’ Role in Addressing Global Climate Change:
Therefore it is resolved that APA reaffirms its recognition of the importance of psychological aspects of human environment relations;
Therefore it is resolved that APA supports psychologists’ involvement in scientific research on global climate change and on the role of human behavior as a significant contributor to these changes;
Therefore it is resolved that APA recognizes the current and anticipated psycho-social impacts of climate change, especially for already underprivileged and marginalized groups, in addition to the bio- and geo-physical impact and the ethical imperative of addressing climate change via adaptation and mitigation;
Therefore it is resolved that APA recognizes the role of psycho-social processes in perceptions and beliefs about global climate change that can potentially hinder public understanding of global climate change.
Therefore it is resolved that APA supports psychologists’ involvement in research, education, and community interventions in improving public understanding of global climate change impacts and psychological contributions to mitigation and adaptation efforts that address both environmental and human, including psychological, impacts of Global Climate Change. (American Psychological Association, 2015, para. 11–15)
The APA resolution above was prompted by awareness that “climate change has already had disproportionate impact on the poor, including greater impacts on women and children, on rural regions and their inhabitants, and is anticipated to have greater effects on already disadvantaged populations including but not limited to persons with disabilities (APA task force report on Psychology and Climate Change, 2009; International Disability and Development Consortium, 2008; National Research Council, 2010)” (American Psychological Association, 2015, para. 5). By reviewing these resolutions, you gain further insight into professionally recognized roles and responsibilities of psychologists with regard to sustainability and global environmental concerns.
With this example of climate change in mind, consider how a psychologist’s knowledge, research, and education might be effectively and creatively employed as tools of social change for the advocacy of a healthy environment and global sustainability.
Instructions: Post by Day 3 an analysis of the importance of addressing global environmental threats as they relate to community sustainment, social change, and social justice. In your analysis, explain the importance of psychologists being advocates for the greater society and the role they can play in addressing global environment threats. Describe one concrete action related to sustainability that could be taken to further a specific social change or social justice effort. Include in your analysis any ethical implications related to the action you propose.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
