Signature Assignment Paper Outline:
This assignment allows you use critical thinking to provide an assessment and intervention plan based on The Real Cases Project: Andrea R. Case. Mimicking the process you may complete in the field, use this assignment to demonstrate effective written skills working with individuals and families.
Below is an outline for the paper. Follow it closely and make sure to answer all the questions. You must cite evidence from the case to back up your points. Also, use information from outside readings/sources to further explain dynamics, roles, obstacles, and treatment. To complete this paper, you must use a variety of sources of information including information from the text and outside sources. Find the most appropriate model of intervention and back it up with evidence from the source. This paper should be written in APA 6th edition style in paragraph/essay form using professional language. Include citations and references for any idea that is not original. Try not to use direct quotations, as it is better to put the information in your own words but use a reference to show where you learned of the information. This paper should be no more than 5 pages not including a cover and a reference page.
