Program Design Proposal

For this assignment, you will be applying what you learned about risk and protective factors related to your term paper topic, by designing an intervention or prevention program to decrease risk factors and increase protective factors.

You will be using the empirical research from your paper to design this evidenced-based intervention or prevention program that addresses your topic. This assignment is to get you started on the Program design and to give you feedback on your ideas.

 

Please provide a preliminary outline of the program you plan to base on the information from your term paper.

This information should include:

  • Specific issue to be addressed – this should map onto your paper topic (e.g., if your paper topic was adolescent substance abuse, then the issue to be addressed is adolescent substance abuse).
    1. The specific goals you want to achieve with the program
      1. Preventing your topic;

Or

  1. Intervening to mitigate or prevent the negative outcomes identified in your research paper
  1. If you chose an intervention to mitigate or prevent the negative outcomes
    1. Report the specific results from your paper showing your topic leads to these negative outcomes
    2. Provide the full APA references for the results reported
  2. The specific demographics of the people who your program is designed for.

 

  • The theory or conceptual framework (e.g., social learning theory) that will be the basis for how you design your program (look in the articles you reviewed in your paper for ideas).
    1. The theory/conceptual framework must be an existing theory/ conceptual framework
      1. Provide the reference of the article or textbook you used to find the theory/conceptual framework.

 

  • A description of at least two risk factors you want to reduce – identified in your research paper from two different studies:
    1. Report the 1st specific risk factor and the results that showed it was a risk factor
      1. Provide the full reference from your research paper the 1st risk factors and results came from
    2. Report the 2nd specific risk factor and the results that showed it was a risk factor
      1. Provide the full reference from your research paper the 2nd risk factors and results came from

 

  • A description of at least two protective factors you want to enhance – identified in your research paper from two different studies:
    1. Report the 1st specific protective factor and the results that showed it was a protective factor
      1. Provide the full reference from your research paper the 1st protective factors and results came from
    2. Report the 2nd specific protective factor and the results that showed it was a protective factor
      1. Provide the full reference from your research paper the 2nd protective factors and results came from
  • Find two scholarly, empirical evaluation studies of existing programs that address your topic. These two program studies will form the basis of the program you design
    1. Program 1
      1. The full APA format reference
      2. A two-sentence description of the program that was evaluated
  • Specific, clear results that show the parts of the program that were effective
  1. How you will use/adapt/apply those effective program elements to reducing the risk factors and/or enhancing the protective factors identified.
  1. Program 2
    1. The full APA format reference
    2. A two-sentence description of the program that was evaluated
  • Specific, clear results that show the parts of the program that were effective
  1. How you will use/adapt/apply those effective program elements to reducing the risk factors and/or enhancing the protective factors identified.
