Cognitive Factors

You are the social worker for Joe’s family and are tasked with completing an assessment on the family.

  • What are all of the cognitive factors involved, for each family member?
  • How might these cognitive factors influence family dynamics?
  • How might these cognitive factors influence biological or societal systems with which they are involved?

Response Guidelines

Respond to a fellow learner who either identified a cognitive factor that you missed, or whose answers to either of the other two questions differed from your own.

  • In the first case, discuss your response: Is that cognitive factor actually at play? If so, why do you think you missed it? If not, support your explanation with examples from the text or the movie itself.
  • In the second case, discuss the differences: What might be influencing the difference in perception? Support your answer as above.
