Intervention: Body project https://www.blueprintsprograms.org/programs/836999999/body-project/
Requirments: 2-3 double-spaced pages in length. Use 12pt Times or Times New Roman font with 1” margins on all sides.
Identify the problem(s) that will be targeted by the intervention and indicate why the problem is important to address. Use several specific facts about the prevalence of the problem. Some sources to help you with this section are posted in the Paper #1 Instructions and Resources module. ( Note: Make sure to include citations for where you got this information from.)
Describe the activities that occur during the intervention. Who provides the help? What do participants do during the intervention? How long does the intervention last? (e.g., LifeSkills Training is implemented over the course of three years. There are 15 lessons during the first year, followed by 10 booster sessions during the second year, and five lessons during the third year.) Where does the intervention occur?
Describe who receives the intervention (e.g., Who participates in the intervention? What age(s) are the participants?) Then, identify where the intervention lies on the intervention spectrum. Is it prevention, treatment, or maintenance/rehabilitation? If it is prevention, is it universal, selected, or indicated? Explain how you knew where the intervention was on the spectrum (e.g., LifeSkills Training is a universal prevention program because all youth at a school participate in LST).
Goals and Strategies
Identify the long-term goals of the intervention. Are the long-term goals to reduce problems, promote competence/wellness, or both? Identify the short-term strategies of the intervention. Are the short-term strategies focused on risk-reduction, competence promotion, or both?
Thinking about each of the main intervention activities, use Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model to identify which levels (or interactions between levels) are the focus of the intervention. Focus on what levels the program directly tries to change, rather than what it may change indirectly.
Without considering how the intervention was actually evaluated, discuss how you might know whether or not the intervention works. For example, what outcomes do you think should be measured? When should these outcomes be measured? (i.e., right after the program? Months or years after the program is ended?) Are there any challenges that may occur when trying to measure these outcomes?
On a separate page at the end of your paper, include a References page. At a minimum, this should include the citations for the websites that you used as sources. It should also include any other sources that you cite in your paper (e.g., articles from class, articles about the prevalence of the problem). Because APA is the standard format used in this field, it is the preferred style for the references, but APA format is not required.
