Option #1: On-the-Job—Presentation
Imagine you are employed by an outpatient mental health clinic that has seen a recent influx of patients diagnosed with Post Traumatic-Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Major Depressive Disorder. You have been asked to develop a PowerPoint presentation to help educate the clinical staff at the outpatient clinic regarding evidence-based interventions that can be effective for patients with these diagnoses.
Conduct an internet search to identify evidence-based practices (EBPs) to treat both disorders (PTSD and Major Depressive Disorder). Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 8-10 slides in which you address the following items and questions:
Identify one EBP for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Identify one EBP for the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder.
Discuss the components of treatment recommended for each EBP.
Are there any differences in the EBPs for child versus adult patients? If so, what are they?
Are there specific treatments or interventions that are not recommended for patients with these diagnoses? If so, what are they?
Under what circumstances (if any) are medications recommended as part of the treatment for each disorder?
Identify resources that clinical staff may access (books, articles or websites) for more information on EBPs for both disorders.
Discuss and cite the course textbook and at least four additional credible sources to support the knowledge you present in the PowerPoint presentation. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find this credible source. This slideshow should be 8-10 slides in length with document and citation formatting per the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. A title slide and a closing slide for references should also be included, in addition to at least eight content slides.
To keep your slides engaging and brief, include speaker notes of 150 words on each of your content slides to help guide the presenter.
You may also want to use the Sample PowerPoint cited in APA in the Library’s website under the “APA Guide & Resources” link.

Motivational Enhancement Therapy and Relapse Prevention have both been identified by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as having been proven effective in preventing substance abuse.
In an essay 8-10 pages in length, address the following:
Explain the chief components of both prevention programs, including services offered, staff involved, and duration of services or treatments recommended, for example.
