CAST STUDY 3 CONFLICTED COUPLES 3Case Study Analysis Conflicted CoupleOne of the most challenging and painful areas of marriage is marital conflict. It is unavoidable and if not dealt with will cause the very foundation of the marriage to crumble. While conflict is normal in a healthy marriage, too much conflict can supersede the positive aspects of the marriage and cause marital issues to a rise[Mor07]. Unfortunately, conflict can be the result of the couple’s diverse preferences. These preferences can stem from diverse family backgrounds, cultural, or just normal individual differences. Not surprisingly, conflict can cause a couple to grow further apart or gain a new perspective about what it really means to come together as one[Rip14]. Learning to manage conflict resolution will strengthen the couple and bring them to a higher level of intimacy, ultimately resulting in marital satisfaction and marital long life[Haw91]. The challenge of conflict not only is difficult for the couple, however, can alsobe challenging for the counselor, who must play referee in order to advance the couple to a healthier, happier, progressive state[Rip14]. Many counselors rely on the Prepare/Enrichprograms for premarital and married couples[Ols151]. This program offers the diversity and complexity that couples need in order to help solve many marital conflicts. This program deals with identifying key areas which include strengths and weaknesses by using an online website evaluation that each couple can complete individually. Subsequently, helping the counselor to examine the couple’s background and other key factors that may contribute to conflict[Ols151]. Understanding the results of this report will provide the platform on which to advise the couple and bring about an analysis from which the couple and counselor can glean from. By identifying theses key areas the counselor can closely examine the

Avon Case Study

...Avon Calls on Foreign Markets Case Study Introduction Avon is a 125 year old beauty product manufacturer, who has for over a century left a mark on millions of people throughout hundreds of countries. Avon is most popular for their direct selling technique in which the company sells products directly to distributors or final consumers rather than to trading companies or other intermediaries in order to achieve greater control over the marketing function and to earn higher profits. While this method has proven to be successful for Avon and has certainly contributed to their longevity in the market, there are still crucial factors imposing on the company’s global presence throughout the world. The case study “Avon Calls on Foreign Markets” shed light on issues related to branding, pricing, promotion, as well as distribution. Throughout this analysis, I have identified the shortcomings of Avon over the decades and have also provided recommendations for moving forward. Global Branding Avon is known for their standardized branding, which allows the company to create a uniform global quality image while saving costs by using uniform ingredients and packaging. While this method may be helpful in increasing sales in Thailand as consumers prefer to buy beauty products made by foreign companies, this may not necessarily always work out to Avon’s advantage. For instance, Daniels et al (2011) reveals several barriers to uniform branding that Avon should most certainly be......

Below is a detailed description explaining how to prepare a case study analysis paper. _____________________________________________________________________________ Typically written in narrative form, a case sets forth, in a factual manner, the events and organizational circumstances surrounding a particular managerial situation. Placing the reader at the scene of the action, the real events presented provide an opportunity to help evaluate alternative courses of action. Case analysis is used in academics to help you demonstrate your ability to evaluate situations critically, to apply concepts you have learned in a class, to solve problems, and to communicate your findings and conclusions. The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you to case studies and the analysis process, and to a proper format for writing the case study analysis report. Try not to worry about trying to find the "right answer" to a case. Usually, there is no single right answer. Most cases are intentionally ambiguous and can be viewed from many different perspectives. Several feasible solutions are usually available to any give case. The best solution is the one you can best support with thoughtful analysis, logical arguments, and substantiating evidence from......

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

Steve and Cindy have recently begun this journey by seeking help with their marriage from a pastoral counselor at their church who uses Olson’s PREPARE/ENRICH program (2009). They have both taken the program’s online tests, which cover a multitude of key areas such as the couple’s background, relationship dynamics, and personalities. This paper addresses three main areas including the identification of the couple’s key strengths and weaknesses, a discussion of potential issues with the couple’s personality, and the development of a plan to counsel and support them through church ministry. * Key Areas Identified * Hawkins (1991.p.23) describes the concept of intimacy as “oneness with healthy separateness”. When reviewing the results of Olson’s PREPARE/ENRICH report (2009), it becomes evident that many areas of strength and weakness exist in the couple’s relationship. The answers provided under idealistic distortion indicate that both Steve and Cindy realize that there are problems in the marriage needing to be addressed but Steve is minimizing the severity of the problem.

Case Study

...A Case Study by any Other Name Cathy Foster Liberty University   A Case Study by any other Name Researchers have different methods of observing their subjects. Among the most popular is the case study. Case studies are used a lot in psychology and one of the most famous psychologists that used case studies to detail the private lives of his patients was Sigmund Freud. What is a Case Study? “A case study is an observational method that provides a description of an individual” (Cozby & Bates, 2012). During a case study the individual is usually a person however that’s not always the situation. The case study can also be a setting, which can include a school, business, or neighborhood. A naturalistic observational study can sometimes be called a case study and these two studies can overlap (Cozby & Bates, 2012). Researchers report information from the individual or other situation, which is from a “real-life context and is in a truthful and unbiased manner” (Amerson, 2011). What are some Reasons for Using a Case Study Approach? There are different types of case studies. One reason to use a case study is when a researcher needs to explain the life of an individual. When an important historical figure’s life needs explaining this is called psychobiography (Cozby & Bates, 2012). The case study approach help answer the “how”, “what”, and “why” questions (Crowe, 2011). What are Some Advantages and Disadvantages to the Case Study Approach? Some......

...on a pilot basis in the middle of October in the hospital’s labor and delivery unit. It had not been difficult to mount support for the project. POE systems had been demonstrated to reduce error rates, and medical errors were widely recognized as a large and serious problem in health care. A landmark study published in 19911 estimated that 1.3 million injuries occurred annually in U.S. hospitals, 69% of which were at last partially due to errors in patient management. The study found that 13% of injuries resulted in patient death, ‚a rate that if extrapolated to the United States as a whole suggested that approximately 180,000 deaths a year were, at least partly, the result of injuries received during the course of care.‛2 This study also found that adverse drug events (ADEs) accounted for nearly 20% of total injuries (making them the largest injury category) and that 45% of ADEs were the result of errors. A later study at two Boston hospitals found that 6.5% of admitted patients suffered an ADE, and that 28% of these were due to errors.3 1 L.L. Leape, T. A. Brennan, et al., ‚The nature of adverse events in hospitalized patients: results of the Harvard Medical Practice Study II,‛ New England Journal of Medicine 324 (1991): 370–376. 2 Ibid.
