Integrative Paper #2: Intervention Review (Micro Practice Focus)
Briefly describe and critique an intervention used in social work practice to address your chosen integrative topic. Select a clinical intervention that addresses any significant psychosocial challenge faced by older adults (or by older adults and their families). Because you will be offering a summary and critique of the research evidence supporting the intervention, it is strongly suggested that you find articles describing the results of research trials that have tested the effects of the intervention on older adults.Cite relevant literature using APA (7th ed.) format throughout the paper.Use headings and subheadings to organize content.
Follow the following format:
Page 1 : intervention being examined, and up to 10 bulletpoints that summarize content from pages 2–5 (i.e., 3–4 points about the intervention model, 3–4 points about known benefits of the intervention, and 2–4 points about shortcomings of the intervention)
Pages 2–3: Overview of intervention model (goals and techniques)
Page 4: Documented benefits of the model (positive outcomes that have been demonstrated by research evidence)
Page 5: Shortcomings of model (unmet goals, lack of evidence, feasibility challenges)
