a neurological, psychological, or neurodevelopmental disorder.

Select a neurological, psychological, or neurodevelopmental disorder.

Write a 2,450- to 3,500-word paper comparing and contrasting three therapeutic interventions used to treat this disorder. Compare measures of effectiveness, such as validity, efficacy, symptom and behavior management, and recidivism. One therapy should be cognitive in nature, one should be pharmacological in nature, and the third should be an alternative therapeutic treatment.

Identify common symptoms associated with your disorder and rates of symptom reduction or management as reported with the three treatments. Based on your research, what would be your approach to treating the condition? Identify which treatments you would use. Explain why.

Analyze the neurophysiological underpinnings of diseases and disorders.

Examine contemporary attitudes toward the three treatments you selected.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Include 7 to 10 peer-reviewed sources.

  • Chapter 2 of the Goldenberg text focuses on the concept of family life cycles as multidimensional, multicultural, and multigenerational. What does the family life cycle mean to you, and why is it so important for family therapists to understand and incorporate into their practice? As you answer this question, consider two very different causes for unexpected disruptions in a family’s life cycle, a traumatic natural fatal event such as a heart attack or a hurricane versus a human-made traumatic event like a school shooting or a violent sexual assault. Do you think these different types of events would impact the family in similar or different ways?
