Imagine a scenario in which you and a new partner are discussing testing for sexually transmitted infections. Devise a strategy for addressing this issue with your partner. Write out a role-play conversation with your partner using the effective communication strategies discussed in this lesson.
Your script must be at least 650 words long (not including references). Your script should demonstrate accurate knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases, and how to test for them. Use at least 2 references to support your work. Use at least 2 academic (peer reviewed) references to support your work. Note: In your conversation you don’t have to say things like “According to Smith in 2017, the incidence of STI’s when a couple does not use protection is 50%.” That just sounds weird as part of a conversation. So you can say -” I don’t want to have unprotected sex because the chances of catching an STI raise by 50%” (Smith, 2018). The citation is to show ME that you did your research.
If you would like, you may write a script for a couple that differs from your personal experience (culturally or in terms of orientation, for example) or even write a script detailing how you would convince two clients of yours to get tested.
All assignments and forums in the class are designed for you to demonstrate your understanding and your knowledge of the material content. It is never acceptable or appropriate to simply provide information that is copied and pasted from a source – any source. Even if the information were cited properly, copying and pasting does not demonstrate knowledge. <o:p>
All assignments are submitted to Turnitin, which is a plagiarism checking tool. Any assignment receiving a score of 30% or better raises serious concerns about the originality of your work. An originality score should generally be no more than 20% including references. Originality scores between 20 and 50% will be graded with a point deduction. Any originality score over 50% after review will be graded with a 0. Please keep this in mind as you are submitting work.
