The flow of the paper - The whole of the document is connected and each section is connected to the ones before and after in a logical manner. The paper should be 8-10 pages not including references and title page/abstract. No minimum or maximum number of references but rather use what is necessary to create a cohesive and well formed document. It is estimated that 8-15 references would be needed.
Content should identify and address the primary case concerns outlined in the case study. Content should be presented in a professional manner with sound rationale for claims asserted. Paper addresses all points posed in the research question fully.
Three different counseling theories are explored in relation to the case study given. Rationales for why these theories would be useful are presented with evidence on efficacy in these type of cases and/or age groups, basic tenants of the theories, and how one would expect they'd be used in this context.
Examples of techniques a counselor could use with this case study are explored and expounded upon. There should be techniques connected to each of the three theories selected in the same paper. Techniques selected should make sense given the realistic circumstances and resources in the presented case study. It is estimated that 2-3 techniques per theory would be sufficient to create an overall effective treatment strategy.
