Psychology Module 4 # 1


Make an initial post (100 word minimum)  to EACH of the four discussion topics within the first two weeks of the beginning of the course.

You are required to make at least three reflective posts (100 word minimum) to the comments of other students.   

You must begin by first stating “I believe your main (basic)point was”.  You may then proceed to discuss your viewpoint and advance or clarify you contribution to the discussion topic.

 In viewing this news clip, my opinion is that these doctors, and the foster centers are both trying to make or save the most money. These foster children are prescribed these medications due to the fact that they are simply cheaper than sending them to an actual psychiatrist in order to find out the root causes of their problems and get them on the right medication if they even need said medication. These doctors the children go to see the children and foster system as an easy way to make money from the state by prescribing them high level psychiatric drugs which are completely unnecessary resulting in permanent damage to the children physically and mentally. I believe this practice is completely unethical and it is a mirror image of the current opioid crisis that is occurring today where people become addicted to these damaging drugs and the doctors allow or even instigate the addiction in order to make money.
