Range of theories in the social sciences vary in their views about human sexuality. It is these theories that provide explanations to the reality of diverse sexual behaviors and relationships.

Evolutionary Perspectives

Sociobiologists viewed that human sexuality is the product of natural selection, i.e., “A process in nature resulting in greater rates of survival of those plants and animals that are adapted to their environment” (Hyde and DeLamater, 2014), which include individuals’ concern with physical attractiveness. People prefer attractive, healthy partners who are sexually productive and capable of producing many offspring. Thus, having large breasts and healthy are indicative of attractiveness (Hyde and DeLamater, 2014).

Psychological Theories

Freud’s psychoanalytic theory viewed that personality and behavior is influenced by sexual libido in that sex is one of the key forces in human existence. Hyde and DeLamater (2014) suggested that Freud believed that the child passes through the stages of psychosexual development, introducing the erogenous zones (i.e., Areas of the body that are particularly sensitive to sexual stimulation) related to each of these stages. On the other hand, learning theory viewed that sexual behavior is the product of learning in that it tends to modify through the concept of reinforcements and punishments through the process of operant conditioning. Bandura’s social learning theory emphasizes imitation and identification, a process of development useful in identifying one’s sense of gender identity (Hyde and DeLamater, 2014).

Sociological Perspective

Hyde and DeLamater (2014) suggested that sociologists viewed human sexuality is shaped by society or culture in that it approaches the understanding of human sexuality based on the basic assumptions that: (a) Every society regulates the sexuality of its members, (b) Basic institutions of society (e.g., religion and family) influence the norms governing sexuality within that particular society, and (c) The standard norms of a particular sexual behavior depends on the cultural background in which it occurs. Reiss’s view concerning the social importance of sexuality revolve around two components: (1) the connection of sexuality with physical pleasure, and (2) sexual interactions fosters social bonding, personal disclosure, and reproduction (Hyde and DeLamater, 2014).

Three points that stood out to me in the video are the actions of one person in the family affects the actions of the other family members, to act as if what you want to change such as caring will influence the other person to act what you want changed such as showing caring which will then really do the behavior such as care (Psychotherapy.net, 2001). The third point is how the person’s past family life influences how they behave in their present relationship. Family system approaches build on a multicultural framework that benefits many ethnic and cultural families, as many place importance and value on the extended family. The family as a whole provides context in understanding how each member functions in relationships with others, and how he or she behaves (Whiston, 2017). Each member’s actions and behaviors affect the family system. The goals are to change the family structure to improve communication and interactions, reduce symptoms of dysfunction, and modify family boundaries (McAdams et al., 2016). The counselor functions as a teacher, coach, and consultant and joins the family by connecting with each member by understanding its unique interpersonal, social, and cultural contexts (Corey, 2013).

The skills learned benefits the entire family system as it involves the whole family in modifying the pattern of function, improve family communication and reduce conflict (Krumpfer, 2014). Behavioral couple therapy addresses these issues as it helps the couple to change how they think about a problem, to test new behaviors, keep what works and throw away what doesn’t (Psychotherapy.net, 2001). It helps the couples to understand each others perceptions and views the problems as solutions that are used to set goals. The counselor builds rapport and joins the family to provide support, positive energy, and provide modeling (Psychotherapy.net, 2001).

    Overview

    Write a 3–4-page analysis about the role of unions in the twenty-first century.Some argue that the traditional role of the union in protecting the worker has been usurped by significant legislation protecting the worker against discrimination, unsafe work conditions, and unfair pay. Others point out that unions remain indispensable for several reasons, including that “at-will” employment remains the law of the land and that most workers can be fired for any reason.SHOW LESSBy successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

    • Competency 1: Develop a foundational understanding of employment law and labor law.
      • Analyze the impact of historical context on union-management relations.
    • Competency 2: Analyze the application of legal thinking strategies to human resource management (HRM) law.
      • Analyze the role of labor unions in contemporary American business and manufacturing.
    • Competency 3: Apply legal thought to human resource (HM) practices in the workplace.
      • Assess how the presence of a union impacts the job of a human resources professional.
    • Competency 4: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly and professional.

    Context

    “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles” (Marx & Engels, 1888).SHOW LESSThe three primary federal laws regulating union activity are the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) (1935), also known as the Wagner Act; the Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA) (1947), also known as the Taft-Hartley Act; and the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (1959), also known as the Landrum-Griffith Act. These acts reflect the attitude of the times in which they were enacted, regarding unions and the power struggle between unions and management.Historically, the legislation, laws, and labor movements at both state and federal levels have experienced periods of harmony and conflict. A study of union history shows how legislation and lawmaking can be affected by popular opinion. In the early nineteenth century, it was not uncommon for any group employee action to be labeled a criminal conspiracy. The change in the view of the law from a focus on association to the means affected to achieve an objective occurred with the decision in Commonwealth v. Hunt (1842). This case was considered a milestone in the labor movement; however, it did not settle the legal issues, and the courts continue to struggle with the legality of union activities. The public view of the violence and unrest accompanying labor actions was often that employers were responsible, particularly in cases where strikebreakers were hired. Public sentiment and unsatisfactory common law led to the passage of the NLRA in 1935.The Assessment 5 Context document contains additional information about labor relations, covering the following topics:

    • National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
    • Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA).
    • Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA).

    • ASSESSMENT 5 CONTEXT

      NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD (NLRB)

      The NLRA established the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to regulate labor management disputes. The NLRA forbids an employer from interfering with or restricting employees wishing to organize, bargain collectively, or participate in concerted activities. The employer may not interfere with the formation of any labor organization or discriminate in a way that would discourage participation in a labor organization. It may not retaliate against an employee who files charges or testifies under the NLRA, and may not refuse to bargain collectively with the employee’s representative.

      LABOR MANAGEMENT RELATIONS ACT (LMRA)

      In 1947, Congress, under pressure to curb the increasing power of unions, passed the Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA). The LMRA focused on stopping unfair union practices. The LMRA “forbids unions from coercing or restraining employees in exercising their rights” (SHRM, 2008) under the NLRA. Employees have the right to select their representatives for bargaining or adjustment of grievances. Unions cannot cause or attempt to cause an employer to discriminate against an employee or encourage a work stoppage in order to gain advantage in union matters, or charge excessive fees to employees and employers. If the union is the collective bargaining agent of the employees, it cannot refuse to bargain in good faith (Labor Management Relations Act, 1947).

      LABOR MANAGEMENT REPORTING AND DISCLOSURE ACT (LMRDA)

      In an attempt to balance the interests of employees, employers, and unions, Congress passed the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA). The statute imposes a code of conduct for all parties and requires a standard of fair dealing. The NLRA is built on the premise of the bargaining unit. For the purposes of NLRA, the bargaining unit is a group of employees who perform similar work and have similar interests with regard to pay, hours, and workplace conditions. A bargaining unit is made up of job classifications, not individual workers. It may be a unit spanning different companies or only part of one company (Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, 1959).There are three types of unionized work situations: the open shop, the agency shop, and the union shop. The LMRA did away with the closed shop, in which only union members could be hired.

      • The open shop does not require a worker to join the union or pay dues. This is the situation in right-to-work states.
      • The agency shop does not require the worker to join the union, but does require dues, whether or not a worker is a member.
      • The union shop requires the worker to join the union within a period of time. In this situation, only the employer may fire the worker.

      Due to the LMRA, a worker can pay dues, not join the union, and not be fired (Labor Management Relations Act, 1947).
