2-3 page assignment
• Imagine you are working in a community agency and would like to offer a group. A survey of clients reveals that there is a community need to address one of the following topics:
o Divorce and parental conflict.
o Traumatic loss and bereavement.
o Management of anger and impulse issues.
o At risk behaviors for youth
o Compulsive disorders.
o Intimate partner violence.
o Successful aging group.
o Caregiving for vulnerable populations.
o Substance use and gambling recovery.
As a first step to propose the group to your supervisor, you will identify research that supports the use, need, or appropriateness of group counseling for this topic for children, adolescents, adults or older adults.
Include the following:
o Title: Select a succinct title that communicates the group topic (issue or problem) and population.
o Type of group: Identify whether the group is counseling, psychotherapy, or brief. Do not propose a psychoeducational group, as it does not meet the requirements for the course project.
o Research support: Incorporate current peer reviewed articles (no more than five years old) supporting the use, need, or appropriateness of group counseling for the selected population. Make sure that there is sufficient scholarly research before submitting your project topic.
Your paper should meet the following requirements:
o Written communication: Written communication must be grammatically correct and free of errors that detract from the overall message. Writing should be consistent with graduate level scholarship.
o APA formatting: Title page, main body, and references should be formatted according to current edition APA style and formatting.
o Number of resources: Minimum of four scholarly resources. Distinguished submissions typically exceed this minimum.
o Length of paper: 2–3 typed, double-spaced pages. Abstract and Table of Content pages are not necessary.
o Font: Times New Roman, 12 point.
