Assessment overview. Provide a summary of the needs of the case in no more than one page. Theory selection rationale. In one paragraph, state the theory you would select to address the problem areas of the case. How is the theory a good fit to address the client’s needs? Consider other factors that impact your choice of theory, such as time available to provide the service and agency/program restrictions. Review of theory and empirical support. Support your theory selection through empirical research findings on its effectiveness/efficacy. In other words, what were your research findings on the use of this theory to address the problem areas of your case?
