Provide a brief description of the topic to your instructor. Include a brief discussion of the treatment for the offender population. This could include the type of treatment-related assessment, the assessment instruments used and the treatment approach, a description of the offender population, and measures of the effectiveness of the treatment. These comments need to show that you have selected your topic and have enough resources to complete a scholarly review.
After you select a specific treatment for a specific offender population, conduct a preliminary literature search on the topic you selected to ensure that you have ready access to scholarly resources. In the report, include a list of scholarly resources to be used for the literature review of your course project. This list should contain a minimum of ten peer-reviewed journal articles and scholarly texts focusing on issues related to your topic, such as etiology, prevalence, and treatment. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, and institutions (.edu, .org, and .gov).
