Claim Of Recommendation Regarding Treatment.
Claim Of Recommendation Regarding Treatment.
Please no plagiarism and make sure you are able to access all resource on your own before you bid. Main references come from Balkin, R. S., & Kleist, D. M. (2017) and/or American Psychological Association (2014). You need to have scholarly support for any claim of fact or recommendation regarding treatment. I have also attached my discussion rubric so you can see how to make full points. Please respond to all 3 of my classmates separately with separate references for each response. You need to have scholarly support for any claim of fact or recommendation like peer-reviewed, professional scholarly journals. I need this completed by 09/13/19 at 3pm.
Responses to peers. Note that this is measured by both the quantity and quality of your posts. Does your post contribute to continuing the discussion? Are your ideas supported with citations from the learning resources and other scholarly sources? Note that citations are expected for both your main post and your response posts. Note also, that, although it is often helpful and important to provide one or two sentence responses thanking somebody or supporting them or commiserating with them, those types of responses do not always further the discussion as much as they check in with the author. Such responses are appropriate and encouraged; however, they should be considered supplemental to more substantive responses, not sufficient by themselves.
Read your colleagues’ postings. Respond to your colleagues’ postings by explaining whether you agree with your peer’s choices to use the intervention they reviewed based on your understanding of the research.

Within section C: Professional Responsibility and under the Continued Education sub-section, counselors understand their need for continued education in current scientific and professional information (American Counseling Association, 2014, C.2.f.). This is imperative because counselors may have received their education several or more years ago as new and different research and findings continue to develop and are published. This is especially important for researchers as they need to take into consideration the latest research for their study as well as be able to reference current research in their plan for conducting their research protocol to a review board (Balkin & Kleist, 2017).
Implications for Practice
As someone who plans on conducting holistic counseling for Veterans in the future, I will need to not only know about the latest research in issues that many Veterans face ie. post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and problematic anger, but also I will need to keep up with the latest research in holistic and functional medicine as well. There is so much research constantly coming out in the ever-growing field of counseling and not only do we have a professional obligation to try to keep up with it but we should also want to know more (ACA, 2014, C.2.f.).
The other aspect of this sub-section is to not only try to keep up with the latest research, but also our continued education units (CEUs) as well. Most if not all counselors/professionals must maintain a certain amount of CEU’s annually, which will be taught using the latest research on each topic. This would be a part of our responsibility to remain informed on the best practices for working in diverse populations (ACA, 2014, C.2.f.).
The importance of evidence-based practice is all throughout the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics. However, this professional obligation does not only apply to counselors, but to many practicing professionals including researchers. Counselors will need to frequently work with current professional literature and research to maintain a competence and effectiveness (ACA, 2014, C.2.f.).

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
