Compare and contrast the article you selected with your colleague’s article in terms of how they might inform appropriateness for use with the identified clien


Respond to two colleagues who selected a case study different from yours:

  • Compare and contrast the article you selected with your colleague’s article in terms of how they might inform appropriateness for use with the identified client.
  • Explain how reviewing the different studies presented in this Discussion influenced your decision about whether you would use the therapy, given various evidence for the different treatment modalities.


Identified Therapy:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

The methodological context of the study and the findings:

  • Hall, Rosado, and Chapman utilized a descriptive cross-sectional feasibility study design. Focused on examining demand, acceptability, and implementation. The data was collected from a purposive sampling of recipients and providers of the intervention via cross-sectional surveys and interviews

How the study and its findings are applicable to Ella:

  • The intervention being studied is called “Being Out With Strength” (BOWS). It is a group therapy model focused on young adults in the LGBTQ+ community. One of the assumptions of BOWS is that LGBTQ individuals experience depression primarily because of internalized oppression, and cognitive-modifying interventions can address the depression (Hall et al., 2019). Ella is newly identifying as bisexual and is not sure her mother will accept her. The added stress of how people will react to her bisexuality and the internal projection of that stress could be eased with guided sessions to help her modify her internal thoughts/feelings.

Why I would offer CBT – BOWS in Ella’s treatment plan:

  • I would recommend a BOWS group for Ella. The therapeutic and social benefits of meeting with other LGBTQ+ youth who are struggling could increase Ella’s self-worth, confidence, and healthy coping mechanisms. The study found that 95% of participants had at least one depressive episode in the last year, indicating there is a need for mental health services in the population and that 84% of participants, after the BOWS group was described to them, would be open to participating in a service like that. This information tells us that the need for the service is there and it is being delivered in an accessible way to the intended recipients.

  • Identify the therapy that you chose.

I chose cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for Ella Shultz's case study. CBT is structured and goal-oriented, focusing on the current problem and finding practical solutions (Turner, 2017).

  • Briefly paraphrase, in 2–3 sentences, the methodological context (i.e., research method, how data was collected, and the instruments used) of the study and the findings.

PTSD symptoms were measured using standard tests before and after CBT treatment in controlled trials and group studies. The purpose of this meta-analysis study was to assess the efficacy of CBT for children and adolescents with PTSD. The results indicate that CBT is significantly effective in reducing PTSD symptoms in children and adolescents (Xian-Yu et al., 2022).

  • Explain how the findings are applicable or appropriate for the client in your case study.

The research shows that CBT effectively reduces PTSD symptoms in youth, which is relevant to Ella's situation, given her history of trauma and emotional instability stemming from abuse and homelessness. Implementing CBT could assist Ella in managing her mixed emotions about reconnecting with her mother while also facing her immediate psychological and behavioral issues.

  • Determine whether you would use or not use the therapy you selected for the client in your selected case study (consider how culturally relevant it is, how aligned it is with social work ethics, etc.) and explain why.

CBT fits Ella because it can be adjusted to her cultural context, aligns with ethical standards in social work, is backed by evidence for effectiveness, and offers a thorough approach to therapy. These aspects indicate that CBT could equip Ella with the necessary resources and guidance to manage her current difficulties and make progress toward her goals.
