I’m working on a psychology question and need guidance to help me learn.

Good health behavior starts with you! You are challenged in this
experiential activity to modify your own behavior in a health-enhancing
way. As you are learning, psychology research clearly shows the strong
relationship between behavior and health outcomes. As a result of this
experience, you will have a more complete empathic understanding of
those facing similar challenges due to immediate health conditions that
require life changes as well as those taking a proactive approach to
injury and illness prevention. As a result of this experience you might
also decide to continue with your self-modification, especially if you
experience some of the more immediate positive benefits to your

You will select a behavior to either decrease or increase in
frequency or amount. You will take a baseline of the behavior
(frequency, form, causes, and effects of behavior) and decide on a
program to modify the behavior. You may choose to give something up or
decrease the use of something like Facebook, Twitter, texting (except
for emergencies), all sweets, chocolate, soda, coffee, tea, iPod, TV,
computer games, staying up late, you get the idea. Or you may decide to
begin or increase a healthful activity. Examples include increasing or
starting a workout regimen, daily walking, eating more fruits and
vegetables, getting more sleep, increasing quality time with nature, or
volunteering at a local charity to name a few. Keep a daily journal and
record the following: thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In other words,
did you ever obsess about the object/activity or loath it? Were the
thoughts intrusive/disruptive? If you are giving up an object/activity,
how did you feel when others were engaged with/in the object/activity
and you did not? If you are starting or increasing an activity, what
were the responses of others around you? Did you feel supported? Did you
share your goals? Was there pressure by others to give in or give up?
Did you ever temporarily give in or give up? What thoughts and emotions
emerged if you did? How did you rationalize the giving in or giving up
if it did occur?

IMPORTANT NOTE: Consult your physician if your chosen behavior to modify could impact your health or medications you are taking.

Find this media (Tough guise 2: violence, manhood) on the internet

At its core, Tough Guise 2 argues that men’s violence is overwhelmingly a gendered phenomenon. And it suggests that any attempt to understand violence therefore requires critically examining our cultural codes and ideals of manhood.

The following points are central to the film’s main line of argument:

  • Masculinity is made, not a given;
  • Media are the primary narrative and pedagogical forces of our time;
  • Media images of manhood therefore play a pivotal role in making, shaping and privileging certain cultural and personal attitudes about manhood;
  • A critical examination of privileged media images of manhood reveals a widespread and disturbing equation of masculinity with pathological control and violence;
  • Looking critically at constructed ideals of manhood – at how, why and in whose interests these ideals are constructed in different historical, social, and cultural contexts – denaturalizes and diminishes the potential of these imagined ideals to shape perceptions of ourselves, our world, and each other.
  • Key Points from Tough Guise 2

  • When we talk about violence in America, whether it’s mass shootings in the real world or sensationalized violence in our movies and video games, we’re almost always talking about violent masculinity.
  • The statistics tell the story: the overwhelming majority of violence – sexual assault, mass shootings, murder, and domestic violence resulting in physical injury – is committed by men and boys.
  • But even though men and boys commit the vast majority of violence in America, gender is rarely a part of mainstream discussions about violence.
  • Questions for Reaction Paper

    1. Why do you think it is that men and boys commit such an overwhelming percentage of violence in America?

    2. Does Katz’s observation that men and boys are responsible for the vast majority of violence in America imply that most men and boys are violent? Why or why not? Explain.

    3. What’s the difference between Katz saying that violence is about violent masculinity rather than about violent males? Explain.
