Students will gain experience researching a behavioral procedure to identify and evaluate potential risks and benefits. Emphasis is placed on effective communication with colleagues and clients. The purpose of this assignment is to allow for application and expansion of course content to real-world case evaluation.
For this project you will conduct a risk-benefit analysis using a case from your current experience. Students are encouraged to use a case example from their own experience. In situations where a current case cannot be evaluated, a hypothetical case will be provided for you. (Please contact your co-instructor to request the hypothetical case.) Note: In real cases, only pseudonyms may be used – do not use real names or locations. In accordance with the academic integrity policies of the course and program, the content of your risk-benefit analysis must be your own original work, composed specifically for this assignment during this course.
You will conduct a thorough risk-benefit analysis using the steps from the Bailey & Burch textbook, Chapter 16. The products will include:
1) a Risk-Benefit worksheet. (See example on page 233 in Bailey and Burch)
2) a General Risk Factors for Behavioral Treatment worksheet. (Bailey and Burch – page 226)
3) a Benefits of Behavioral Treatment worksheet. (See example on page 230 in Bailey and Burch)
4) a Reference list in APA style.
Complete all of the following activities. Use headings to clearly indicate what section/part of the assignment you are completing.
