Biomedical and psychosocial treatments indicated for a specific disorder.
The topic of the paper will be the biomedical and psychosocial treatments indicated for a specific disorder. The paper will explore and explain why specific biomedical and psychosocial treatments are indicated for the disorder under discussion and what controlled studies or other acceptable evidence exist to demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment approach(s). Cite at least 5 peer-reviewed journal articles published within the last 10 years as a part of your “evidence” that demonstrates treatment effectiveness.
Further, special considerations in the application of general psychosocial treatment approaches (e.g., family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, etc.) should be discussed and explained.
Finally, the paper must contain a discussion of the cultural appropriateness of at least one on the psychosocial treatments discussed to a specific ethnic group (African American, Native American, Latino, etc.). This discussion will indicate any evidence that would indicate differential therapeutic efficacy with a specific ethnic group and/or how the treatment in question has been modified to make it more culturally appropriate.
Do not waste time describing the disorder in detail unless such a description is essential for the understanding of the treatments you will discuss. Assume that we all know the signs and symptoms of the disorder and do not need a two-page description of it. You may select a topic of your choice from the disorders under consideration in this course. If you have any doubts or questions, please consult with me.
