Brief Introduction

paper.

Literature Review of Possible Change Strategies
Literature Search Tactics. Using the TU library, I typed the key words (?family therapy? or ?family counseling?) and (?divorce? or ?separation?) into PsychInfo and received 250 hits. When I typed the same keywords into Social Work Abstracts, I received 80 hits. When I typed the same keywords into the Cochrane Library, I received 677,429 hits. When I typed the same keywords into Google Scholar, I received 1,390 hits. [Please

note that you will also want to search for ?practice guidelines.?]

Evaluation of the Evidence
List of Evidence-Based Change Strategies
When I scanned through all of the hits I received during my literature search, I noticed that several treatment modalities kept

recurring. These modalities and exemplar articles are listed below. [Please note that these are fictitious therapies and articles! You

will need to do the work to find the real ones! The names will show up in the abstracts or in the articles.]

Summary of the State of the Evidence
A brief review of the evidence for (or against) each treatment modality listed above is provided below. [Think about the following questions when completing this 2-4 page review. Does the treatment work? What types of outcomes occur? Who does the treatment work for?

Who does the treatment not work for? How strong is the evidence (case studies or pre-experimental designs or quasi-experimental designs or true experimental designs)?]

Creative Family Therapy:
Research shows that Creative Family Therapy is helpful for families who are going through the process of divorce (Mauro, 2011; Singer, 2011). It has been shown to increase communication within the parental unit (Mauro, 2011) and to decrease stress in children (Singer, 2011). Draine?s comprehensive literature review (2011) reports that Creative Family Therapy has been tested and shown to be effective with low-income and moderate-income populations as well as with Caucasians, African Americans, and Latinos. However, it has been less helpful with American Indian and immigrant populations (Draine, 2011). Although there have been no randomized controlled trials of Creative Family Therapy, comparison groups have been used in the research, which increases the scientific community?s confidence in the findings.

Justification for Selection of Change Strategy
Justification for Selection of Change Strategy
It is clear from the Summary of the Evidence that Creative Family Therapy has the strongest scientific support behind it. However, the

family with whom I am working has immigrated within the past 6 months to the United States. Because this therapy is not necessarily

helpful for this population, I will opt for the ?next best? option. Socio-Political Family Therapy has the next best scientific

evidence and has been shown to be helpful with immigrant populations.
