Comparison between efficacy of CBT and the Stages of Change model as applied to PTSD among Veterans.
In the treatment paper, the student will select one issue (i.e., anxiety, health problem, disaster survival, sexual abuse, domestic violence, etc.) related to stress, crisis or coping, a population (children, adolescents, young adults, mid-age adults, older adults, military personnel, social workers, etc.) and address with two interventions, also discussed in the class materials, and compare and contrast them in a formal paper. The paper must correctly cite reference sources. To complete the paper correctly with adequate conceptual complexity, search for Blooms Taxonomy of Critical Thinking Skills online and incorporate analysis, comparison and contrast, synthesis and evaluation into your arguments for using the two selected interventions as supported by references to address stress, crisis or coping issues.

FIRST HALF OF PAPER
The first half of the paper due mid-semester includes 1, 2, and 6 above. Mention the two interventions (number 3) howyou plan to compare but do not go into detail at this point. Write the introduction and purpose of your paper, the description, and your reference page. Basically, your references will shape your paper.
FINAL PAPER: This will include all sections 1-6.
