Research Paper

Your culminating project in this class will be a research paper about an addiction of your choice. You will be asked to write the paper from a specific point of view. Be as specific as you can in your choice of addiction and point of view, as those choices will guide your research and writing.

You may choose one of the following viewpoints:

  • The addict
  • The social worker
  • The parent
  • The child
  • The significant other
  • The friend

The Final Research Paper is due in Week 11. You should present the research you have found in a cohesive 3-5 page paper, focusing on the point of view you have chosen from the list above. For example, if I choose to write about gambling addiction and I am writing from the perspective of the social worker, my paper could focus on strategies that a social worker might use to assess, treat, and follow-up with a client who has a gambling addiction.
