Family Systems and Social Networks in Counseling Paper (Evidence-Based)
Your task is to author a research paper including a minimum of five peer-reviewed journal articles (published within the last 10 years) to explain the effectiveness of social networks’ initiatives/evidence-based treatments for helping families with special needs (Social networks for this assignment do not mean social media websites).
Two of these articles must discuss the complex experiences of families with special needs. Your paper must discuss the unique needs of families with special needs (FWSN). These are families with members who suffer from serious disorders/disabilities (e.g., substance use, personality disorder, mood disorder; or any other syndrome of pathological nature). Your presentation must explain the characteristics of your identified serious disorders/disabilities.
Three of these articles must present social/community initiatives or evidence-based treatments to help families with special needs. You must use primarily research articles that address how social networks or community systems/agencies are useful for helping FWSN. You must describe the specific initiatives or evidence-based treatments that these social networks/communities use to help FWSN. Your paper must critically evaluate the effectiveness of these initiatives/treatments for helping FWSN (e.g., identifying cause-effect relationships versus correlations, or providing correlation coefficients, sample sizes, research designs, validity threats, etc.). Your evaluation of research articles/sources must focus on the strengths and limitations of each source/study you select, leading to a summary that identifies patterns in the literature. Your concluding remarks must also provide a set of implications that follow from your findings covering all the sources/articles you used to author your paper.
This assignment requires you to spend time locating research articles in couples and family related academic journals. This process takes time; you must study what each article contributes so your paper is not a simplistic report of one article after another. Consult your APA publication manual on how to write an acceptable literature review; providing a citation at the end of each paragraph is not acceptable.
Exact length of paper: Five pages, not including title page, abstract, tables, figures, or references; written in 12-point font size, double spaced. Consult your APA publication manual (7th ed.) for accuracy of your paper’s structure and writing style; consult the Zinsser (2006) to improve your writing skills. Content beyond five pages will not be read, nor graded. You must write within the exact length of this paper.
