Psychological Intervention

First read widely about the topic so that you can get a good feel for the area. Think about an appropriate structure for this essay and introduce this structure at the beginning. Think about where you want to end up – which is evidence to support your final conclusion.  A key feature of these questions is to draw on the evidence base. After you have introduced the nature of the problem for which treatment is needed, review the evidence for or against them. Consider areas in which research appears to be lacking or groups for which the treatment has been shown to be helpful – and those for whom it has not been examined or not found helpful. Make sure your conclusion can be backed by the research
