20661 SOWK 789 01 Independent Research Project: Clinical Use of Forgiveness DiBlasio Approved as an Advanced Research requirement for students in the Clinical concentration for the specializations of Families & Children; Behavioral Health; Aging; and Health. Students will review the clinical forgiveness intervention used in a study and will become familiar with the overall results. The data from this study have been collected from marital couples that were assigned to one of four experimental groups: forgiveness treatment; spiritual forgiveness treatment; problem-solving treatment and a no-treatment control. These data have been collected and the course will NOT involve the collection of data. Students will be asked to become familiar with the test questions that were used and from them to think creatively in designing a way to analyze the concepts of the study. The instructor will take the student’s ideas and he will design a statistical way to test them on the existing data and in turn explain the results to the student. The instructor will then give guidance to each student for how to report the findings. No previous knowledge in experimental statistics is necessary. The assignments include a review of the literature paper and a final written report. This course REQUIRES students who can: (a) work independently, think creatively and demonstrate initiative and motivation; (b) have flexibility and patience to be involved in an advance research pursuit where knowledge and familiarity builds as the course progresses; (c) attend ALL Monday class meetings (some classes will be devoted to individual/small group meetings) AND once or twice during the semester the student must be able to arrange a time on campus to meet with the instructor other than on Mondays; (d) invest out-of-class time to reading and other class activities (students accountable to document sufficient weekly out-of-class efforts).
