Paper Guidelines (8 -10 pages)
Develop a paper on the effectiveness of psychotherapy models for a specific disorder.
The disorder can be depression ( in general or one type of depression); anxiety (or a specific anxiety disorder such as phobias), eating disorders (anorexia or bulimia); substance use disorders, etc. NOTE : Use Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat GENERAL ANXIETY DISORDER
The paper should specify in the introduction, the disorder and its definition, and usual symptoms, and the types and names of psychotherapy models found to be effective in its treatment (literature search, may be 3 or 4 models). Cite the most convincing research: describe the sample, data collection, findings and conclusion of at least-four published studies. The studies may be (but do not have to be) on the same model; however, the research should be on one specific disorder. Critique each study—are these strong studies on effectiveness? What are the studies’ limitations?
Explain why the studies chosen support a specific model’s use. For example, has cognitive therapy for eating disorders been shown to be more effective than psychodynamic models because of the symptom of dichotomous thinking? Are there cultural implications that affect the model’s effectiveness?
Finally, describe the implications for your practice.
