Estimate the effects of family psychosocial interventions
Estimate the effects of family psychosocial interventions in community settings for people with schizophrenia or schizophrenia-like conditions compared to standard care (Pharoah, Mari, Rathbone, & Wong, 2006, p.6).”You have also reviewed the chapter from the text that describes the multiple approaches, core components, and outcomes associated with family psychoeducation. I would like you to imagine that you are the director of a program that works with families of young adults with schizophrenia. You have just received some funding to implement some “effective family interventions” from a donor who has given you two criteria: your services need to be psychosocial and they need to have some evidence that they are effective. You will also be expected to have some measurable outcomes for a program evaluation report at the end of the two year funding cycle. Considering your task, please address the following: 1 List at least four family psychosocial strategies or interventions you would implement. 2. Why would you choose these four strategies? Provide a rationale for your answer using the research and other readings from this week, as well as any personal experience you might have. 3 In brief, what outcomes would you want to measure to evaluate the impact of your interventions at the end of two years? Be brief and specific about some of the variables about which you would want to report in your program evaluation.
