ASSIGNMENT #2: DESCRIPTION OF INTERVENTION (27 points)

For this assignment you will design an intervention appropriate for the issue you identified in Assignment #1 for micro/mezzo levels and locate another intervention appropriate for the macro level.

You will need to provide documentation to support the use of the intervention by using at least four empirical, peer reviewed journal articles per intervention (8 articles used in total). Please include information on the following:

Part I: Micro/Mezzo Level Intervention (this is the intervention you will design) - follow this format for your assignment:

  • Restate the goals & objectives for the client(s)
  • Provide overview of where the sessions will occur (if they vary in location, note which sessions are located where) and what the staffing needs are.
  • For each of the 8 sessions, include the following information. It does not need to be in paragraph form – you can just provide the information as formatted in the assignment below.

Session number:

Theme of session:

Length of session:

Purpose of session:

Connection to objectives:

Session plan (what is happening in the session):

Materials needed for the session:

What, if any, homework is included for the session:

Any expected obstacles for the session:

  • What evidence supports the use of the intervention for this issue and practice level? (this section should be in traditional paper format with citations)
    • Use four empirical articles evaluating the intervention
      • You need to demonstrate how the particular techniques you have selected have been shown to produce change in your outcome of interest
  • Why do you feel that this intervention will be effective for your client target problem? (this section should be in traditional paper format)
  • State the Intervention Hypothesis for your client.

 

Part II: Macro Level Intervention (this is the intervention you will locate; this section should be in traditional paper format with citations)

  • Restate your macro level goals and objectives
  • What is the name of the intervention you have identified?
  • What is involved in the intervention?
  • How is the intervention deployed to the community, what is involved in the intervention (i.e., activities), as found in the published information regarding the intervention?
  • What evidence supports the use of the intervention for this issue and practice level?
    • Use four empirical articles evaluating the intervention
  • How does the intervention tie back to the goals and objectives?
  • Why do you feel that this intervention will be effective for this community?
  • State the intervention hypothesis.
