Evaluative Article Selection & Assessment of Problem Formulation and Intervention

Select a problem addressed by social workers.ELDER ABUSEThen identify three articles that focus on an evaluation of an intervention that is addressing the social problem. The articles should provide enough information on the intervention, the treatment population (sample) and the details of the evaluation plan sufficiently to make comparisons.The interventions should be from different theoretical perspectives or models of intervention.
To ensure that you are selecting the correct articles, use this checklist to determine if each of the fourarticles is correct for this assignment.Criteria1. Does the article describe an intervention? Does the intervention include:a. How long the intervention lasts?b. How frequently participants receive the service?c. Does the article describe the activities in the intervention?2. Does the article describe the sample receiving the intervention?3. Does the article describe the evaluation of the intervention?a. Does it identify the outcome?b. Does it describe the outcomes (results)?4. The article IS NOT a Meta-Analysis (Comparing several interventions)
Once you have selected and thoroughly reviewed the three articles. Please provide the following information
Elder Abuse- Problem addressed by the intervention is identified and supported empirically. The problem is narrowed, and specific antecedents are identified.
Theory-Theoretical foundation for the intervention or model is explicit, including key concepts that are mechanisms of action for the intervention.
Intervention Structure-The intervention structure is fully explicated to the point that it could easily be replicated.
Hypothesis-The hypothesis is stated and variables are easily identifiable.
Outcomes (Variables)-The outcome variables are identifiable and conceptually tied to the problem statement or theoretical foundation for the intervention.
