Write a 5-7 page paper and prepare two pages of speaker’s notes for a presentation to parents and professionals on a selected issue.
Social and cultural factors inform childbirth decisions and approaches to childbirth, which in turn may affect health in infancy and later childhood. Your third assessment gives you the chance to apply your knowledge of these factors and to learn about different approaches to neonatal assessments. You will consider common birth complications that result from lack of prenatal care, medical conditions that can cause problematic pregnancies, and social factors such as poverty. You will also examine implications of caring for premature infants for the individual, family, and society, and to recommend best practices for the health of newborns and infants.
Imagine you are a professional with expertise in prenatal and postnatal development. You have been invited to address an audience of parents and fellow professionals on a selected issue.
Choose one of the following scenarios as the basis for your presentation:
- Postpartum maternal depression:The impact on early postnatal attachment.
- An agency to support teen mothers in an urban, low socioeconomic status (SES) area has requested that you provide a presentation on postpartum maternal depression to their support staff. The group is interested in knowing more about how postpartum maternal depression affects early postnatal attachment in particular. The group is also interested in suggestions for empirically supported interventions prevention strategies for their population.
Part 1: Research Analysis
Identify the scenario you have chosen and develop a 5- 7 page analysis on your selected topic, supporting your ideas with current scholarly research that fully explores the topic. This analysis will provide the basis for you to explain the impact of the issue on the infant, family, and society.
- An examination of how the specific issue affects cognitive, social, emotional, or physical development in early childhood and beyond.
- An analysis of major theories or recent research related to a selected topic that considers the influence of biology and the environment, health, education, and individual and cultural influences on development.
- An application of child development theory and research in recommending appropriate responses or interventions to an infant’s evolving needs in school, home, and community while considering unique cultural factors relevant in those contexts.
Part 2: Presentation Speaker’s Notes
Drawing on your research in Part 1, prepare two pages of speaker’s notes for the presentation directed at an audience of professionals and parents in which you:
- Describe the topic of the presentation and its significance to the audience.
- Analyze the impact of the issue on the infant, family, and society while considering individual and cultural differences and any potential health disparities.
- Recommend best practices for the health of newborns or infants.
Type the presentation on two double-spaced pages. This does not need APA in-text referencing, but you can refer to important scholarly sources that support your ideas. Remember to consider the level of understanding the audience may have on the topic so that you avoid jargon or provide clarification. This presentation needs to have objective support, but, as a presentation, it can be in more informal first-person language.
