For your final project, you will evaluate and choose 1-2 therapies from those covered in this course (you may apply a maximum of two, and your selection(s) must be from therapies covered in this course) that will successfully address a concern (chosen from the categories indicated in the first bullet point below) brought by a mock client who identifies with a non-majority population.
MY SELECTED PSYCOTHERAPIES OF CHOICE ARE REBT AND POSITIVE PSYCOTHERAPY, SO THE LITRATURE MUST DISCUSS THESE
The first part of this project should be 11 pages long and should describe the client's demography and concern; it should then provide an evidence-based reason for your choice of therapeutic approach with the client.
To successfully complete this project, you will be expected to:
• Choose a single disorder that can be ameliorated with psychotherapy (choose from these DSM-5 categories: depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma and stress related disorders, OR substance-related and addictive disorders).
• DO LITRATURE OF HOW DRUG AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE AFFECT INDIVIDUALS
• Identify a therapy or therapies (no more than two) that may be efficacious for treating that disorder, based on current research.
Discuss positive psychotherapy
• Discuss what the research says about the use of this therapy or therapies with multicultural populations (choose ONE facet to discuss: race, religion, ethnicity, culture, OR sexual orientation) you will address. One example might be arguing the usefulness of Interpersonal Psychotherapy to assist a male suffering from an anxiety disorder and who identifies as a member of the Hispanic population.
The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
