PSY 624 Milestone One

07 Feb

PSY 624 Milestone One Guidelines and Rubric:

Draft of Literature Review
For this initial milestone, you should focus on literature from only the last five years regarding violent offenders, non-violent offenders, and trauma victims. In
your research, focus on the legal system and how it interacts with these target populations. An article that addresses all target populations would be ideal, but it
may be difficult to find. Focus on the major treatment areas for the target populations and how the treatments address the needs. There is a lot to cover in these
topics, so finding articles that cover one or two populations or areas will allow for a more comprehensive approach. Make sure when you are developing your
literature review that you are familiar with APA formatting.
Learn How to Write a Review of Literature is a good place to begin.
Prompt: Submit a draft of the literature review (Section I) for your final project, including all critical elements as listed below. In the literature review, you will
summarize forensic psychological treatment literature in the last five years for each of the target populations (non-violent offenders, violent offenders, and
trauma victims). Please make sure to use peer-reviewed and academic sources for the literature review.
Specifically the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Literature Review: Summarize forensic psychological treatment literature from the last five years for each of the target populations. What are the most
common psychological concerns among each population? Are these concerns specific to populations within the legal system, or do they share common
concerns with other populations? Which treatments have been particularly effective in meeting the needs of each of the target populations? Are there
treatments that have been effective in the general population that might benefit the target populations, but are not admissible or feasible given the
constraints of the legal system?
a)
Non-violent offenders
b)
Violent offenders
c) Trauma
victims
Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: Your literature review must be submitted as a four- to five-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New
Roman font, one-inch margins, and at least six sources cited in APA format.
