Prevention against African American Male Drop outs in high school

The evidence-based practice paper should be 9-13 pages in length (not including references) and must follow APA 6th format guidelines. The paper must be written in an academic tone in accordance with APA guidelines. Define your practice problem/issue and your population of interest. Use reliable sources to provide standardized definitions of your problem and describe the prevalence of the problem in the general population. Present your EBP question in a clear and concise manner. Keep in mind: the purpose of this section is to educate your reader on your issue and population, and make an argument for why your practice problem needs to be addressed. Describe how you went about searching for the evidence you present in the paper (include your search terms, what search engines/databases you used, about how many studies or articles were available for the problem you identified and how you decided on the research articles you selected). Your goal is to identify three evaluation studies (quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods) of social work interventions for your issue, and when possible, your population. Studies that identify risk factors for / correlates of a social work problem, or attempt to explain pathways that lead to the problem are not good fits for this section (although they may provide good information for your Background section).When you submit your draft of this section, you will also submit the three (or more) articles you intend to review with a very brief 2-4 sentence summary of the article (for example: “The Smith, et al. (2007) article is a quasi-experimental study that evaluates the ABC intervention for women with depression. I chose it because the sample closely aligns with my population of interest and it is one of very few studies on the topic that uses an experimental design.”) Briefly describe and critique the three intervention evaluation studies you identified. Include a brief (1-2 paragraphs) description of the intervention. Use the skills you have learned in class to provide thoughtful critiques of the evaluation research that has been conducted on these interventions (e.g., identify and discuss the study methodology, identify the studies’ strengths and weaknesses and discuss how they are important for interpreting the results, discuss issues of internal and external validity and why they are important, etc.). You are expected to go beyond what the authors provide to you in the manuscripts.Make an argument for one intervention approach (from those you presented in Part III) that you believe presents a viable solution to your practice problem. This intervention should be both relevant to your target population, and rigorous enough to be implemented with your population of interest.Describe how and why this intervention is the most appropriate for your issue and population. • What aspects of the supporting research have led you to believe this intervention will be successful in practice? • Assess and describe the fit of this practice solution/intervention for your client. Does it seem applicable to your client’s preferences, culture and values? Does it seem realistic (time needed or cost of intervention)? Why or why not? • What considerations will be necessary for successful implementation of this intervention in practice? Conclude your paper by briefly restating your EBP question and your primary findings. Identify gaps in the literature and suggest areas for additional research.
