Sample Psychology Paper on Treatment and Supervision Plan

There are two parts to this assignment. Part 1 includes a written case description, the selected target behavior, intervention plan, measurement system, and plan for evaluating intervention effectiveness. Part 2 requires that you select the audience that you will train and provide a rationale for your choice. After identifying the audience, you will provide an overview of your virtual and in-person training for the selected audience, including how you will monitor to ensure proper implementation by all involved in services.

Part 1: Case and Intervention Overview
Part 1 is a combination of writing and outlining material related to your specific case study organized as follows:

Case Introduction
Briefly describe the individual in your case, using a pseudonym.
Base your case on someone from your professional or personal life; using the same person from your assignments in PSY7712 and PSY7713 is strongly recommended. Keep in mind that it is only acceptable to use someone from your personal life (such as your child) for academic purposes. It is unethical for you to provide behavior analytic services to family members.
No external references are necessary in this section of 1–2 paragraphs.
Target Behavior
State and provide an operational definition for the selected target behavior, discuss social significance, and confirm the function of the target behavior.
Consider and adhere to the current BACB Ethics Codes and Capella Compassion Code [DOCX] when selecting target behavior.
No external references are necessary in this section. Two paragraphs maximum.
Intervention Plan
Outline all intervention procedures, briefly summarize each intervention plan, and provide specifics of the implementation of each intervention for your target individual.
Consider and adhere to the current BACB Ethics Codes and Capella Compassion Code in your selection.
Each brief summary statement should be 3–5 sentences. Resources for each intervention should be cited and referenced, but lengthy details of the resources should not be provided.
Measurement and Intervention Effectiveness
Briefly describe how you will collect data on your target behavior, how you will measure the effectiveness of your intervention, and how you will ensure the data is being collected accurately.

Resources should be used to support your choices.
Two paragraphs expected. One page maximum.
