Biopsychosocial paradigm, PIE Perspective, and Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Theory
You have been asked to speak to an audience on the importance of the social factors affecting one’s experience of life. For this presentation, create an interesting and educational PowerPoint presentation, which contains a critical narrative that integrates aspects of the various theories with your individual sociocultural experiences.
To begin, create a PowerPoint presentation of four to five slides (excluding title and reference slides). Research each theory fully so that you can effectively synthesize information relevant to these topics. Your presentation must include at least three scholarly sources that are cited in APA format.
- Select one of the following theories as your main focus and use it to compare the other two theories: the biopsychosocial paradigm, person in environment (PIE) perspective, and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory.
- Provide a discussion on how the environment impacts humans, including examples of how this theory shows that your environment impacts your life. Please do not include anything you are uncomfortable sharing with your instructor.
- Provide secondary summary slides with descriptions of the other two theories.
- Incorporate appropriate images, tables, graphs, or other visuals as necessary.
Please observe these general guidelines for your visual presentation. This link contains tips for creating effective slide presentations.
- Slides should include a maximum of five bullet points or short sentences, not dense paragraphs.The information that explains each bullet point is conveyed via Speaker’s Notes or by recording your voice to each slide.
- Slides should include relevant visuals such as images, graphs, tables, data summaries, sound and/or animation that enhance understanding of concepts, ideas, and relationships.
Once you have completed your PowerPoint, you must add either Speaker’s Notes to each slide. Speaker’s Notes are the typed notes that appear below the slide that complement the presentation slides. Whereas the slides have short bulleted items, the Speaker’s Notes will contain more details. They are essentially what the presenter will say during a presentation to an audience to explain the bulleted points and any images, graphs, data summary, and/or animation on the slide. It is important that the Speaker’s Notes are concise and detailed when explaining the points.
Creating the Presentation
The PowerPoint presentation:
- Must be four to five slides (excluding title and reference slides).
- Must begin with a content slide that provides a summary of the chosen primary theory as it relates to an experience of how environment impacts life. A succinct thesis statement must be present, either in the text on the slide or clearly stated in the Speaker’s Notes or in the voice recording.
- Must include slide(s) of the two perspectives of how environment impacts human beings.
- Must include example(s) of how the social/environmental perspective impacts one’s life, using each of these three perspectives. Use specific life experiences to demonstrate these impacts (e.g., a child with autism and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory). Who is affected by this disorder and how? Consider micro, mezzo, and macro levels.
- Must include images and text that tastefully convey the message presented on each slide.
