TREATMENT PAPER (Competencies 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.)

In the treatment paper, the student will select one issue (i.e., PTSD, anxiety, health problem, disaster survival, sexual abuse, domestic violence, etc.) related to stress, crisis or coping and address with two interventions also discussed in the class materials and compare and contrast them in a formal paper. The paper must correctly cite reference sources. To complete the paper correctly with adequate conceptual complexity, search for Blooms Taxonomy of Critical Thinking Skills online and incorporate analysis, comparison and contrast, synthesis and evaluation into your arguments for using the two selected interventions/models as supported by references to address stress, crisis or coping issues. The required outline follows for this paper. The format should be APA style, 10-15 pages (not including cover sheet and reference page).

1. Introduction, purpose of paper

2. Description of stress, crisis or coping issue/problem and its significance and/or prevalence with your selected population

3. Description of the two intervention models (history, techniques, etc.)

4. Compare and contrast the two models

5. Conclusions, implications and/or recommendations

6. References: peer reviewed journal articles no later than 7 years (2011-2018), and only 1 text book citation is permitted. At least 15 references and citations are expected.


The first half of the paper due mid-semester includes 1, 2, and 6 above. Write the introduction and purpose of your paper, the description, mention the two selected interventions, and your reference page. Basically, your references will shape your paper.


This will include all portions 1-7.


1. How well were text or course inclusive theories, skills, and research knowledge included and well referenced in APA style? Was an evidence informed practice approach present, in your argument and justification? Was the theory comprehensive and substantial? Were the interventions described appropriate, for the issue/problem selected?

2. Did the paper identify, and discuss and support with literature sources, issues/limitations (such as professional values and ethics, diversity, and social justice) from each model? How well were these discussed?

3. Did this paper demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and mastery of the professional knowledge appropriate for a graduate level paper? Was it well written, organized and presented in a professional style, no spelling or grammatical errors, with cover sheet included?

Note: the paper must be grammatically correct using APA style. Papers with many grammatical errors and misspellings will not receive a satisfactory grade. The content of the paper must be high, A, quality. This must be the best of your work possible.
