Question: Paper Description

During the past 10-15 years, the field of clinical psychology has slowly been moving towards "evidenced based practice," or using treatments which are supported by research due to effectiveness. However, when most people feel depressed, anxious, moody, etc and seek out a treatment provider, they do not hear much about their "treatment options."

This assignment requires you to to identify a mental illness then select a treatment manual to review. In the paper, you will describe the mental illness, key symptoms, prognosis, effective treatment types, and finally, the treatment you selected. There are many workbooks (below) that can be found in the university library, public library, or bookstores. Additionally, most of them are available online for $10-20. Read the workbook, apply some of the activities or assignments, and provide your reaction, using the detailed rubric (scoring form) that will be added in a couple weeks.
