The Diamond model of leadership has been used for three decades proving to be adaptable flexible and can easily fit several situations (as cited in McCarthy 2011). The diamond leadership model contains four elements which are self others task and organization. These four elements are the essential elements of leadership and if they are combined they will produce results (as cited in McCarthy 2011). This model of leadership fits the GDD leader the best because it is practical theoretical and combines several other aspects of the leadership theories. This model of leadership is also a great fit for GDD because of its flexibility and its ability to give priority to situations strategies and people. The situational leadership model and the relational leadership model are different from the diamond leadership model. The situational leadership theory was created by Dr. Paul Hersey and Dr. Blanchard (Admin 2012). According to Admin (2012) in the article Who are Hersey and Blanchard – the Drs of Leadership Dr. Hersey considered that the situational theory was more of a model and that the model was not about being as effective as a leader but about matching the behaviors of leaders. According to Ryan May (n.d.) the situational leadership models core is that there is no single best approach to leadership but its more effective to be task-relevant. The situational model has for styles telling selling participating and delegating (May n.d.). According to Ryan May (n.d.) telling and selling are more about completing the tasks at hand and participating and delegating are more about the personal developments of the team. The relational leadership model involves five components which provide the approach to leadership in contemporary organizations (Exploring Leadership n.d. page 74). These five components are process inclusive empowering ethical and purpose (Exploring Leadership n.d. page 75). This approach to leadership is deliberate and constructs responsibility toward constructive purposes that are comprehensive of individuals and different perspectives enables those included is moral and perceives that every one of the four of these components are expert by being procedure situated.

Nice work discussing the issue of repressed memories! Such memories are generally associated with trauma. Although repressed memories may be real, their validity is questionable. This is because as time goes by, the information recalled is rarely in its pristine, original form. How do you think this can impact a forensic psychologist’s work?

Do you believe in “repressed memory”? Why or why not?
Repressed memories are a traumatic event that is unconsciously retained in the mind of a person. It is also an effect on the conscious thought, action, and desire of the individual. It is also common for the conscious individual to repress unpleasant thoughts or experiences (American Psychological Association (APA), 2002).
I do believe in repressed memories and in how many individuals in society have had a traumatic event that has been stored away in the mind and is only remembered due to something trigger the memory. I also believe that after being stored away for so long that the memory might be as accurate as it really happened. I believe that throughout the time goes by you may also develop false memories with the event. You can add on to the memory or the story that you believe happened. I also believe it for the reason of something happening to myself at a young age and then remembering it when I was in my early twenties. Before that time I do not remember any of the events that happened as a child.
What are the controversies that surround this issue? Discuss and provide examples to support your answer.
One of the controversies is in which there is the difference between repressed memories and recovered memories. In the repressed memories, is the part in which the trauma is repressed and the ordinary memories can be explained as the recovering of memories. The recovered memory is also when there a significant event or therapy techniques have triggered the memory to be revealed. Another part is the false memories filling in the gaps in which we do not remember that happened while the traumatic event occurred. At this point we start to fill in memories that we believe or think happened at the time (Loftus, 2005). There as research been done also in how the mind is consist undergoing adjustments and reconstruction. The memory consists of fragments of the event and is easily altered. The mind also does not encode all the details of the event. There research has also shown the effect of emotion and has the effect to recall the event. This has also shown that strong emotions will generate unwanted or intrusive memories, instead of blocking them (Gleitman, 1993).

What is repressed memories? Repressed memories is the unconscious process of keeping unpleasant emotional events outside of one’s awareness for an extended period. The reasons one might try to hide such feelings is because of shame, guilt, or anxiety. One does not want to face painful memories and emotions.
Personally I do not believe in repressed memories. Mainly because question have arisen as to whether these memories are induced by therapists who foster beliefs that become so deeply ingrained that they seem like authentic memories. “we don’t know what percent of these recovered memories are real and what percent are pseudomemories,” notes psychologist Harold Lief (cited in Brody, 2000), one of the first to challenge such memories.
Critics argue there have been numerous studies that show how easy it is to implant false memories through leading questions. In one study for example researchers were able to readily convince half the subjects that they had been lost in a mall or hospitalized with severe pain as children.
