Final Project Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: Your evaluation report must be 10–13 pages in length (plus a cover page and references) and must be written in APA format. Use
double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Include at least six references cited in APA format.
The final project for this course is the evaluation of treatment programs addressing three different populations: non-violent offenders (e.g., drug-related charges), violent offenders (e.g., assault), and trauma victims (, victims of abuse, assault, rape, etc.) for the purpose of informing family or criminal court decisions (e.g., family reunification, jail diversion) for each of the target populations. In this project, you will summarize forensic psychology treatment literature from the last five years for each of the populations. Based on your literature review, you will evaluate treatment programs for their efficacy, legal admissibility, and feasibility, as well as their compliance with ethical guidelines and federal laws. Finally, you will include an aftercare plan for each target population.
- Literature Review: Summarize forensic psychological treatment literature from the last five years for each of the target populations. What are the most common psychological concerns among each population? Are these concerns specific to populations within the legal system, or do they share common concerns with other populations? Which treatments have been particularly effective in meeting the needs of each of the target populations? Are there treatments that have been effective in the general population that might benefit the target populations, but are not admissible or feasible given the constraints of the legal system?
- a) Non-violent offenders
- b) Violent offenders
- c) Trauma victims
- Legal and Ethical Considerations
- a) Compare and contrast ethical concerns related to the treatment of each of the target populations. For example, what ethical concerns do
psychologists face in treating each of the target populations within the constraints of the legal system? Are there special considerations in addressing victims versus those who are incarcerated, or violent versus non-violent offenders? Are there certain ethical principles that apply to all three populations? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific examples and guidelines from a professional psychology organization.
- b) Discuss how the specific ethical guidelines of a professional psychology organization may have informed the treatment strategies for each of the three populations. Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific examples.
- c) Compare and contrast federal laws related to the treatment of each of the target populations. How do these laws inform or constrain care options? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific examples.
- d) Assess the impact of U.S. Supreme Court cases on the development and implementation of treatment programs for each of the target populations. How do these cases inform or constrain care options? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific examples.
Aftercare Plan: Now that you have had a chance to evaluate various treatment plans for their efficacy and feasibility, recommend appropriate aftercare plans for each of the target populations. In other words, discuss where the subject will be going and what the subject will be doing upon discharge, release, or completion of care. Be sure to justify your recommendations with specific research.
