Students are to watch the PBS Frontline documentary
Sex Trafficking in America.

Sex Trafficking in America

Write a 510-page word essay (not counting the cover page and references page) using 12-point font, numbered pages, double-spaced with one-inch margins on all four sides of the paper. You will analyze the film while weaving
six sociological concepts from the attached list into your paper
and, in addition, two of the three theoretical perspectives in sociology.
Bold each of the six concepts and the theoretical perspective.

Cover page

Include a cover page with your name, course, and date.

Your paper MUST include the following subheadings:

(Introduction, Concept Application, Theoretical Application, Personal Understanding and Implications for future research)


Provide a summary of the film you are analyzing that includes an overview of the plot and briefly describes the main characters. In addition, explain the purpose of your essay and why this film lends itself to sociological analysis. Briefly mention the sociological themes that will be discussed later in the paper.

Concept Application

6 concepts from the list below into your essay. The essay should flow with appropriate transitions between paragraphs. In your analysis, you must
first define the term and properly cite your textbook with an APA in-text citation. After defining the term, you must clearly apply the term to the film. To accomplish this task you must use
specific details from the film. You might describe themes in the film, specific scenes, and/or include quotes from different characters in the film.

Theoretical Application

After defining and applying all key terms, you must then
two of the three major theoretical perspectives (functionalist, conflict theory, symbolic interaction)
to compare regarding the film. Clearly define the perspectives with a proper APA in-text citation. Then explain in detail how both perspectives apply to the film, and which theoretical perspective(s) you would recommend for viewing the film.

Personal Understanding

Explain in detail what you learned from this assignment as it relates to sex trafficking. Also, explain how social institutions such as the family structure, criminal justice system, governmental entities (local, state, or federal), and/or institutions of higher learning can mitigate and/or eliminate human trafficking.

Implications for future research

Personally, if you were granted funds to conduct research in an effort to mitigate/eliminate sex trafficking what methodological approach would you use to collect your data (e.g., surveys, secondary data, experiments) and Why?

Briefly, describe what other subfields of sociology (e.g., criminology, medical sociology, social psychology) may be interested in your findings as it relates to mitigating/eliminating sex trafficking.
(choose one subfield)


Your paper must include your references on a separate page in proper APA 7th edition format.

Please refer to the attached guidelines for proper APA 7th edition in-text citations.

APA style guidelines

APA Format Tutorial Video Link:

The APA style of parenthetical citation includes the
authors last name and the
year of publication. A
page number is included only when you are quoting the exact words from a source.

Direct Quotations
A page number
is always included when material is copied word for word from a source.

Paraphrased Material
A page number is
not necessary when material is paraphrased (i. e., stated in your own words instead of copied word for word).

There are two ways to cite anothers work. One way puts the authors last name and the year of publication in parentheses at the end of the sentence. The second way is to include the authors name as part of your sentence and put just the year of publication in parentheses. Either way is correct.

Work with One Author
a.) Dust plays a larger role in our lives than we realize (Holmes, 2001).

Paraphrase example


Author is mentioned here and so does not have to be repeated within parentheses.

b.) Holmes (2001) points out that, between 1 and 3 billion tons of desert dust fly up into the sky annually (p. 5).
Direct quotation example

Note: If you cite the same author again
the same paragraph you dont need to include the year as long as it cant be confused with another work. (Ex. The role of dust in asthma is being reevaluated (Holmes, 2001). Holmes also mentions)

The citation below shows you how to cite a book with one author on your reference page.

Kaku, M. (1994).
Hyperspace: A scientific odyssey through parallel universes,

time warps, and the tenth dimension. New York: Oxford University Press.

Assignment 7

Employee Turnover and Future Staffing Needs
A high employee turnover in any industry can be a concern, more so in those that are customer centered. Industries that deal with people’s health are in an even more precarious position. Healthcare organizations with high attrition must consider how a “revolving door” of care providers affects the quality of care the organization is able to provide and the satisfaction of patients with their overall experience. HR professionals are responsible for staffing positions, training employees, providing benefits, and handling any problems or disciplinary actions. The day-to-day responsibilities of managing the workforce can leave little time for long-range planning.

How does a high employee turnover rate impact the operations in a healthcare organization?
Give examples of one clinical and one nonclinical position in your answer. For example, what is the effect of a high turnover among lab technicians and among billing staff?
What data may be gathered and analyzed to assess the reasons for employee turnover?
What additional data might HRM gather?
What would you use for forecasting metrics for current and future staffing needs?
Give an example of a particular healthcare setting (e.g., urban or rural, large or small hospital, or primary or tertiary care).
What best practices would you recommend for reducing healthcare employee turnover? Explain at least three such best practices and their positive affect on a healthcare organization.
Among clinical staff, would you target any particular age group for retention efforts? For example, would you make greater effort to retain younger staff for the organization’s long-term staffing needs or would you rather retain more experienced employees to improve the quality of care?

Provide reasons and evidence in support of your responses.
From the Internet, read the following:
