PSY 496 WEEK 2,
DQ1
There are very different views of what types of evidence are most credible in evaluating the effectiveness of psychological treatment research. In this discussion you will analyze basic applied psychological research as well as evaluate how researchers applied a research process in the development of specific components. To begin, read the following articles (which can be accessed through the ProQuest database in the Ashford University Library):
“Evidence-Based Practice in Psychology: Implications for Research and Research Training”
“Practice-Based Evidence: Back to the Future”
“Psychological Treatments: Putting Evidence into Practice and Practice into Evidence”

After reading the articles listed above, select two of them. Analyze the basic applied research within each of your two selected articles by answering the following questions:
What is the main point-of-view in each article?
What are the primary assumptions each author makes?
Which author are you inclined to agree with? Support your choice with scholarly reasoning and cite your evidence.
You are required to include one peer-reviewed source that was published within the last five years to support your perspective. You may not use any of the sources that were assigned for this course. For assistance finding articles view the “Searching for Articles” and the “Peer-Reviewed Articles” tutorials which are available under Tutorials on the Getting Research Help tab at the top of the Ashford University Library homepage.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers. As you respond to your peers, consider the following:
What evidence did they use to support their perspectives?
Do you agree or disagree with their conclusions? Support your position with evidence from the articles.
What alternative conclusions could be drawn from the evidence they discussed?

It is suggested that you return to the discussion forum before the end of the week to read and respond to the responses to your posts.
DQ2
Then, address the following points in your post:

What are three controversies discussed in the Halter, Rolin-Kenny, & Dzurec (2013) article? Give your opinions about these controversies. From your point view, are these legitimate concerns? Why or why not?

Name a disorder identified as requiring significantly more research and study from the DSM-5 section entitled, “Conditions for Further Study” (Section III of the DSM-5). Construct a research question that is pertinent to the disorder you selected.

Briefly outline a research method that could be used to investigate the disorder based on one of the research methods presented in your textbook.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers. Are the research methods they selected appropriate for studying the disorders they chose? Support your opinions with scholarly information and reasoning. What alternative research design could be employed to study the disorders they discussed?

It is suggested that you return to the discussion forum before the end of the week to read and respond to the responses to your posts.

Read the following articles, which can be accessed through the ProQuest database in the Ashford University Library:
Evidence-based practice in psychology: Implications for research and research training.
Practice-based evidence: Back to the future.
Psychological treatments: Putting evidence into practice and practice into evidence.

Write a three- to four-page article review in which you discuss methodological issues unique to psychological research and analyze basic applied psychological research relevant to the treatment of mental disorders. In your paper, you will discuss the topics of evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence and their roles in providing practitioners useful information for making decisions about appropriate mental health treatments.

In the body of your paper:
Discuss the methodological issues and challenges that are unique to psychological research investigating effective treatments for psychological disorders.
Explain the concepts of evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence and identify controversies associated with these concepts.
Select one treatment modality associated with a disorder in the DSM-5 and present at least one example of pertinent, applied psychological research investigating the efficacy of the treatment modality. Discuss the findings of the research. Locate at least one peer-reviewed article that contains a research study on a treatment modality to fulfill this requirement. You may not use any of the course materials.
Take the point of view of Bauer (2007) to analyze the article(s) you selected in #3. Using this author’s arguments from his Evidence-Based Practice in Psychology: Implications for Research and Research Training article, what would be his evaluation of the article(s) you selected?
Take the point of view of Brendtro, Mitchell, & Doncaster (2011) and analyze the article(s) you selected in #3. Using these authors’ arguments from their Practice-Based Evidence: Back to the Future article, what would be their evaluation of the article(s) you selected?
Discuss ways in which an evidence-based practice model might provide practitioners useful information for making decisions about the degree to which the treatment modality you selected in #3 is an appropriate treatment for the disorder you specified.
Conclude your paper with a discussion of your opinion of the utility of evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence for practitioners needing to identity effective treatments for psychological disorders.
Utilize a minimum of two additional peer-reviewed journal articles published within the last five years (not including the course text or any of the course materials).
