Single-System Research Design (SSRD) Paper
This is an individual assignment. By the third week of the semester, identify an individual or group of individuals with whom to implement a single-system intervention and evaluation. This may be any individual or group in your life, not necessarily people with whom you are working in a professional social-work capacity (this is particularly true if you are not practicing social work currently). During the course of the semester, implement an intervention with this individual or group to help change an identified behavior. This will involve identifying:
• a target goal, which you will describe in the case plan;
• the behavior(s) associated with the target goal that the proposed intervention is attempting to change;
• the intervention designed to help promote behavior change;
• the measure(s) used to assess the desired behavior change; and
• the means by which you will collect data about the change.
For example, your partner may want to lose weight or your friend may want to spend less money or your family may wants to eat more healthy meals (these are target goals and behaviors). Design an intervention with this person or group. Perhaps your partner will park in a more distant parking lot at work to walk more or your friend may budget to spend $100 a week at the grocery store (these are interventions). Perhaps your partner will wear a pedometer to measure more walking. Steps walked is a measure of the behavior change, and the pedometer is the means by which you are collecting the data on the behavior. Your friend may keep a spreadsheet identifying her weekly food costs. Food costs in dollars is the measure of behavior change, and the spreadsheet is the means of collecting the data on the behavior.
As you implement the intervention, write a paper documenting the planned change and the results of the evaluation. Papers should be typed, double spaced, using 1-inch margins, 12 point Times New Roman font. Title and reference pages are required. An abstract is not required. Follow APA 6th Edition style guidelines. The paper (not including title and reference pages) should not exceed 10 pages.
