Assignment 1: LASA 2:  Treating the Substance Abuser and his Family Presentation

Harvey is married and has 2 teenage  children. Harvey has been heavily   drinking on a regular basis for the past 10 years.  In the past his wife  often covered for him  with his job, and usually made excuses for him  with his children and his  friends. Harvey has not attended his  son’s  baseball games this year, and he missed his daughter’s performance in  the  school play due to having been passed out from drinking. At this  time, he is at risk for losing his  job due to excessive absences, and  he was recently arrested for a DUI. Harvey  has realized that his  drinking is adversely affecting all aspects of his life  and he is ready  to quit.


Create an 8-10 slide Power Point  presentation to discuss treatment  plans for Harvey and his family. Use the  speaker notes in the slide  show to further discuss the topics on each slide. In  addition make sure  you have a title slide and a slide with references (in APA  format).   Please reference at least two  peer-reviewed journal articles in your  presentation along with appropriate  information from the assigned  weekly readings. In your presentation:

Evaluate the following methods of treatment and  develop a treatment plan  for Harvey: Alcoholics Anonymous,  Transactional Analysis, and Family Systems  Therapy.

Please: Provide  an assessment of Harvey’s situation and       what he needs from treatment.

Evaluate and discuss the at least one pro and  con of each of the following treatment methods: Alcoholics Anonymous, Transactional Analysis and Family Systems Therapy.

Develop a  treatment plan  for Harvey:


Choose at least one of the above treatments for the plan.

Address at least two issues that Harvey needs to resolve in treatment.

Include at least three steps for Harvey’s recovery.

Explain Brief Strategic Family Therapy and when it is used. Next, do the following:

Develop a treatment plan for Harvey’s  wife.

Address her specific needs as the spouse  of a substance abuser.

Include at least three steps for her  recovery.

Take care that this plan is specifically  addressing her recovery, and not how she can help Harvey recover.

Include at least three steps for their  recovery.

Recommend at least two substance use  prevention strategies aimed at adolescent children of substance abusers.

Choose one of the following cultures: Hispanic, African American, or   Asian American, and analyze how being a part of this culture might  affect  Harvey and his family’s treatment and recovery.   Explain at  least two issues present in treating substance abuse within  that  culture.

Discussion Questions (DQ)

  • Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
  • Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
  • One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
  • I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

  • Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
  • In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
  • Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
  • Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

  • Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
  • Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
  • I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

  • I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
  • As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
  • It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.


LopesWrite Policy

  • For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
  • Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
  • Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
  • Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

  • The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
  • Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
  • If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
  • I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
  • As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.


  • Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: 
    • Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
    • Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
