Quantitative Sampling Frame

Research Question:During childhood adolescent students who are diagnosed with mental health disorders such as depression, ADHD, and PTSD receive behavior, special education, or 504 academic accommodations, once these individuals leave the educational setting, how are these accommodations implemented to maintain employment and satisfactory job performance when it is based on earning a living and salary instead of traditional educational grading factors?

Sampling is a part of a chosen population that is studied to gain knowledge and information to be able to give a generalization about that population (capella.edu).To go about obtaining a representative sample for the question I developed, this learner would use adolescents and adults as the element.The population I would target would be individuals between the ages of 18-23 who had been diagnosed with mental health disorders as a child and were placed receiving behavior, 504, and/or special education accommodations throughout their academic education who are currently employed part-time or full-time.The survey population would be 100-200 male and female participants.This learner would conduct sampling using the purposive or judgmental sampling method using questionnaires and surveys and employee evaluations.Lastly, the sampling frame would include recent high school and college graduates who have been working on their job between 6-12 months.

Qualitative Sampling Frame

Research Question:Do individuals who were diagnosed with ADHD during adolescents and treated with medication while in school need to continue taking the medication into adulthood to be able to perform and function in a physical working environment once they are no longer in an educational setting?

The qualitative sampling frame for this research would include gainfully employed adults as the element.The population would consist of individuals between the ages of 25-35 who had been given medication to treat their ADHD Symptoms from elementary through high school.The survey population would include 10-20 African American, Asian, Caucasian, and Hispanic men and women who continued to take ADHD Medication as adults and adults who ceased medication once they graduated from high school or college.This learner would conduct sampling methods by interviews and questionnaires. The sampling frame would include participants who completed a survey or questionnaire on having Adult ADHD and why they choose to continue or stop taking medication to treat their symptoms.

Although historically, organizational and political leadership roles in the U.S. were reserved for western white men, from elite backgrounds (Eagly, A., & Chin J., 2010), as the demographics of the United States shifts to a minority majority, the characteristics of our historical leaders are not reflective or inclusive of the diverse climate of the future. This implies that policies and practices are needed that adopt a more diverse approach, and mirrors the dominant prevailing social arrangements in which we currently live and work (Bebbington, D., & Ozbilgin, M., 2013). In addition, the creation and application of such diverse interventions , requires diversity in leadership to include multicultural competencies.

The importance of multicultural competence in leadership has been widely recognized. This can be observed in the various multicultural and diversity training requirements imposed by a number of acting bodies such as the American Psychological Association (APA) and Council on the Accredition of Counseling Related Programs (CACREP) (Pieterse, A. et al., 2009). The establishment of the multicultural competencies are evidenced to better address the needs of a diverse society through self-awareness exercises, multicultural skill development, and cultural immersion experiences (Pieterse, A. et al., 2009).

For one tocreate and apply diverse interventions that are anti- discriminatory and challenge social inequalities, it is important to explore historically significant patterns that perpetuate stereotypes to include those that may be hidden in the subconscious (Bebbington, D., & Ozbilgin, M., 2013). According the literature, this involves a deep examination of personal assumptions and beliefs arising from their cultural backgrounds (Furman, G., 2012). A leader in the field must recognize disparities and take an action orientated approach to dissolving these disparities by adopting more inclusive decision and policy making practices, seeking and maintaining collaboration with parents and communities, and communicating genuinely and reflectively (Furman, G., 2012).

As we continue to grow as a country, we continue to see a racial divide in our country beginning with our commander and chief to local community leaders.With that being said it is important to keep in mind that diversity is what our country is made on and what makes us such a huge success, and makes it a great place to live (“Americans see advantages and challenges in country’s growing racial and ethnic diversity,” 2019).While the majority of Americans feel diversity makes America a great place to live, we have 9% that feel because of this our country is a worst place to live.As we look at our school systems, over half of Americans want our children to be educated in local communities even if that means no diversity.A little over 40% understand the importance of have diversity in our schools even if it means busing the students ((“Most in US say growing racial and ethnic diversity makes country better,” 2018),

As a leader in the human behavior field it would be important to host workshops and share the value of having diversity amongst our communities, within in our jobs, as well as just day to day living.Also, ensure I have representation in all meetings and workshops to show our diverse team.In order to remain aware of cultural changes, it would be important to attend meetings, workshops and educational courses to learn and continue to grow so I can better serve those I come in contact with.There are many state, local and government programs available to assist with wrokig with a diverse population of youth, such as Open Doors and Boys and Girls clubs.

Craig Cochran

I am a Christian, African American male who is a father to10 kids, uncle, brother, husband, and therapist. I have been influenced most by my parents and have always enjoyed interacting and being surrounded by cultures different than mine. I am educated and have spent the majority of my life learning and engaging with people from many cultural backgrounds. In the beginning of my career I felt at times people thought I wasn’t qualified to have the leadership positions I held. Our beliefs about the attributes of social groups often bias our judgments of individual group members (Eagly & Chin, 2010). I always wanted to ensure people knew my credentials and that my appointment to those leadership positions was based on education and merit. I had people question my ability to be a leader based on a stereotype about my social group that was incongruent with the attributes that they believed were required for success in leadership roles (Eagly & Chin, 2010).

This learner spent the first 9 years of his life living in different countries. Early on I identified with the African American culture. However in many of the places we lived we were surrounded by middle to upper class Caucasians. This influenced my dress and many activities I was involved in because I wanted to fit in. The cultural groups that influenced me as a child began to change as I entered middle school and changed again when I entered high school. I enjoyed spending time with people who were older because of the wisdom and guidance they gave me. Once again they changed slightly during college where I was surrounded by upper class Caucasian students. The experiences I’ve had with many other cultures has made me more culturally aware of some of the issues that impact young people. I have also become more sensitive to ensuring young people have access to literature that representative of their culture, art work that represents various cultures, and when possible exposing them to activities that are reflective of different cultures.

Interpersonal skills are an essential element of leadership and advocacy. The ability to see and support the vision of others enhances the ability to lead effectively (Eagly & Chin, 2010). As an adult, I can identify with several different cultural groups; woman, wife, mother, bereaved mother, Catholic, student, Polish, and German. Each of these groups represents an essential element of who I am as a person; if one element is removed, a significant gap would exist. As a child, I would have identified as a daughter, Polish, and German.

Indeed, the passing of time has increased the groups with which I identify. As I look at the two lists, what I am struck by is how some of the roles existed as a child, but I would not have identified with them at that age. For instance, I now view my faith as an active choice I make, rather than a task that was expected of me; the same is true for my student status. My identity currently allows me to advocate and provide leadership within the bereaved parent community effectively; I would expect that this aspect of my identity will continue to allow me greater insight into what advocacy and leadership are needed. The other aspects of my identity will enable me to integrate well with others of similar and different identities. I believe in the power that each part of my identity holds, a belief that I extend to others as well. The multiple facets of my own culture remind me that there is more to people than what meets the eye. This understanding pushes me to understand the various layers that exist for each person.
