After reading the assigned articles for this week, select one of the practice examples from the Holden & Barker (Links to an external site.) (2018) article, read whatever information you can find about it in the associated link, and post a brief note to your classmates addressing these issues: Identify the practice issue and describe in a paragraph or so why the intervention has been categorized as “highly questionable.”
In a second paragraph, apply criteria suggested by Thyer & Pignotti (Links to an external site.) (2016) (e.g., was credible evidence supporting the intervention provided? Were any peer-reviewed journal articles associated with the intervention? Was comparison made to a control group? Could the intervention do more harm than good?) and report your findings. In a third paragraph, identify the source(s) of your perspective.
For instance, do you view the intervention from experience as a clinical supervisor, therapist, quality assurance officer, agency administrator, or numbers cruncher? Do you agree that the intervention deserves the “highly questionable” categorization? Post these paragraphs (should be about 1 page) below. You will need to post your initial post before you can read any of your classmates’ thoughts.
