  • 3-5 pages long
  • Article not older than 10 years old
  • More articles the better and easier
  • 3 articles minimum
  • Read abstract and discussion of A LOT of articles
  • EVERYTHING YOU TURN IN IS A ROUGH DRAFT, at the end of the semester things can be edited and resubmitted.
  • Don’t worry about the procedure as much.
  • Use questions from the articles surveys to create our own survey.
  • Measurements- how are things defined.
  • It’s really important to know who your participants are.
  • Determine hypothesis, independent variable, and dependent variable in your literature review.

PTSD/Veterans/Alcoholism

Description

Is alcohol abuse more prevalent in combat veterans diagnosed with PTSD compared to those combat veterans with no diagnosis of PTSD? I. Introduction/Literature Review: (150 points) What specifically is the research about? Why is the topic important to the field of social work? What is known about the problem? If you are evaluating a treatment approach used with a client or a client group, you should review the literature supporting the efficacy of the treatment approach for that particular problem or, if not available, then discuss literature about the efficacy of the treatment approach with related problems. You should do both if available. If there is no empirical literature, then you might turn to practice theory literature to support the treatment. If your interest is in client satisfaction or a needs assessment, then your literature review should focus on why client satisfaction is important in general and in relation to your agency. Your literature review would also describe how satisfaction is used elsewhere. Finally, your literature review should include issues about measuring client satisfaction. For any proposed study, you should consider the types of methodological approaches used to assess the problem. In summarizing the literature you might wish to identify whether the findings are contradictory and whether these contradictions have been explained. Considerations: • Your literature review need not be long and is likely to be 3 to 5 pages. • You should try to find as up-to-date information as possible. Citations that are over ten years old may no longer reflect the latest information. • Articles must come from peer-review journals. Books are interesting but less relevant. Newspapers and popular press (e.g. Newsweek and the like) are interesting but have not gone through a scientific review. • BE CAREFUL THAT YOU APPROPRIATELY CITE THE ARTICLES AND DO NOT PLAGERAIZE. • Each student will find three articles related to their research questions and write a literature review. Students are required to complete any edits and combine all to produce One Literature Review. • Participants (important characteristics)–Who was in the study? How many participants? Both men and women? Race/Ethnicity? Age group? Married/single/divorced. Inclusionary and Exclusionary characteristics. • Procedure–What type of sample? Convenience sample? Simple random sample? Stratified random sample? • Measures/Materials–What measures will be used? Describe survey and scoring procedure. What was Evidence based? Describe what variables being be measured. Discuss Internal and External validity
