Clinicians
at a small clinic have been introduced to a new method to treat post-traumatic
stress disorder (PTSD) in their clients for veterans. Research indicates that
virtual reality (VR) is a highly effective treatment option for patients with
PTSD. Currently, the clinic uses only cognitive processing therapy (CPT) with
their patients suffering from PTSD. The clinicians would like to find out
whether VR therapy has different results from CPT therapy. The measure used by
the clinic to measure PTSD symptoms is the Combat Exposure Scale. Both
therapies need to be applied for a minimum of 12 weeks to be effective.
Write a 525- to
750-word paper that addresses the following for your chosen scenario:
· Clearly define the problem or issue you are
addressing. Provide a brief background of any research you have found that
might affect your research hypothesis.
· Create a research hypothesis based on the
information provided in each scenario. You have been given a data set (Microsoft® Excel®
document) with two sets of interval data (just the numbers, as you must decide
what they represent, such as method A results or method B results). This means
you are going to test one thing against another, such as which method works
best (step 1 of the steps to hypothesis testing). State the null and research
hypotheses. Explain whether these hypotheses require a one-tailed test or
two-tailed test, and explain your rationale.
· Describe the sample you will use. Sample size
will be 30 for each group, which are provided in your data set. Explain what
type of sampling you selected.
Do you think you would also collect some descriptive
data, such as gender, age, or shift? Why do you think it makes sense to collect
descriptive data?
