This literature review is part of a case formulation for a Master of Social Work program with a clinical focus. Needs to be 2 pages with a minimum of 4 references are required. Review the existing evidence from the literature. We are focusing on the client’s diagnosis of ODD, Oppositional and Defiant Disorder, in adolescents. The literature review should focus on the key aspects of the case, with attention to a practice that has been identified as evidence-based for the treatment of similar persons (i.e. age, gender, race, etc.) with a related range of diagnosis and/or presenting problems.
Identify relevant studies and skill sets and/or interventions that would be efficacious for the particular individual. If possible, any materials that describe the particulars of the treatment, (treatment manuals) should be identified and reviewed. A brief summary of the literature search should be included with references presented in APA style. Page 9 in the uploaded file has some references you can use for the literature review. You are welcome to add more or use others.
The second part of this is to review the salient data from the case and the literature. This needs to be 1 to 2 pages. After drawing on the clinical material derived from the interview(s) with the client, other case materials, and the literature review, the student should review and synthesize both and objective and subjective data to identify the critical components of the case. Also, identify gaps in the literature or where the current research does not adequately address your client’s problem(s)/issue(s). For example, client demographics, co-morbidity, etc.
