For this assignment, choose a topic of interest to you that will promote your delivery of culturally competent services to a family from a traditionally underserved population (e.g., an underserved minority population, an underserved religious group, a military family). You will then find at least four scholarly resources on the topic. Choose a narrow topic. For example, you may choose to examine family therapy within an African-American family with an adolescent diagnosed with PTSD and alcohol abuse or play therapy for children with a parent experiencing PTSD related to military service. You may examine quantitative studies (highlighting statistics/numbers) and/or qualitative studies (highlighting stories/experiences).
The following journals (among others) may assist you in completing your research project:
- American Journal of Family Therapy
- Families, Systems, and Health
- International Journal of Narrative Therapy
- Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy
- Journal of Family Psychotherapy
- Journal of Family Therapy
- Journal of Feminist Family Therapy
- Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy
- Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
- Family Process
- Journal of Systemic Therapies
- American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy
- International Family Therapy Association
- Collaborative Family Healthcare Association
To complete the assignment, write down the research question that you were able to formulate based on the synthesis that you developed by comparing and contrasting the four articles and a brief paragraph outlining any clinical implications that you can draw from the information reviewed (i.e., What do marriage and family therapists need to know, consider, and do when presented with a family facing this issue?). Next, provide a few examples of how the authors of the articles that you referenced demonstrated sensitivity and adhered to ethical standards in conducting research with an underserved population. The paper will be graded for content, clinical implications, organization, and APA style and grammar.
