Scenario: You are working for a community mental health agency that serves male adolescents aged 14-16 who have received a diagnosis of conduct disorder. You have been asked by your director of clinical training to answer one of the following question; What family treatment modes have been found to be effective (best practices, evidence-based) for treating this population?
Building upon the data you developed in Module 5, identify one or two research questions that can be evaluated using an experimental design.
Write a proposal that identifies one experimental design method you could use to study the question. The design may be single-factor or factorial and between-subject or within-subject.
Justify the choice of this experimental design as a means of studying the question(s) or hypothesis(es).
Describe the methods (sampling, measurement, and procedures, including assignment strategies) you would use to conduct the experiment.
