Case Study

PSY 570 Final Project Milestone Two Guidelines and Rubric Prompt: The four milestone assignments in this course will prepare you to complete your final project, a case study analysis. In Milestone Two, you will begin work on an outline of your final case study analysis paper. You will continue to explore the ideas you developed in Milestone One regarding the ethical conflicts and interactions present in your chosen case study vignette. Take this information and form the basis of an outline for the entire paper. You do not need to fill out all 11 areas at this time, but you do need to create and maintain working outline of your final project. Incorporate as much detail as possible as you progress through the course. Here is a template for your case study analysis outline with the areas relevant to this milestone highlighted:

1. Title Page 2. Case Study Analysis Abstract 3. Detailed Case Study Vignette Description 4. The Ethical Conflict 5. The APA Code of Ethics Principles

a. Identify and define all five principles b. Highlight, bold, or summarize all that might apply to your case study vignette’s ethical conflict c. Justify why highlighted or bolded principles apply to your case study vignette’s ethical conflict

6. The APA Code of Ethics Standards a. List and define all 10 standards b. Highlight, bold, or summarize all that might apply to your case study vignette’s ethical conflict c. Justify why highlighted or bolded standards apply to your case study vignette’s ethical conflict

7. Statement of Culture and Social Orientations in the Case Study 8. Statement of Dual Relationships or Multiple Relationship Issues in the Study 9. The Ethical Decision-Making Model (Eight-Step Model) 10. An Alternative Decision-Making Model 11. Summary and Conclusion

For Milestone Two, produce a document containing the rough outline following the form above. You are expected to address the first four elements (title page, case study abstract, the detailed case study description, and the ethical conflict). You should provide a working title for the case study analysis (you are encouraged to flex your creative muscle), a preliminary draft of your abstract of your case study analysis (4–6 line description outlining both the case study vignette and your approach to analyzing the case study), a summary of your case study analysis (1–2 pages), and a discussion of the central ethical conflict in your case study (1 page). Remember that you will use instructor feedback to further revise this milestone, which contains moving pieces of your final project submission. Guidelines for Submission: Your paper must be submitted as a 2–3 page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one- inch margins, and any sources referenced cited in APA format.
