Final Paper: From Policy to Delivery
Topics (As a focus for your research project, choose one from the following list):
Child Abuse Reporting Requirements: Child abuse reporting requirements have been enacted in every state in the United States. Laws requiring mandatory reporting cut across specialties (counseling, psychology, medicine, nursing, education, etc.). These laws have been challenged by certain professionals for interfering with their professional relationships with children.
Mental Health Parity: At the state and federal levels, mental health parity laws and regulations have been implemented. Not just the mental health community, but also the welfare and traditional healthcare sectors are affected by this “hot” topic.
Prison Diversion: To give an alternative to prison term for minor offenses, drug offenses, and felonies committed by juveniles or mentally ill individuals, many states and counties have devised court-based diversion programs. From a multidisciplinary standpoint, there are various aspects of this problem that can be investigated.
Psychologists’ Prescription Privileges: Efforts are underway at both the state and federal levels to allow psychologists the ability to prescribe psychiatric drugs to patients. This contentious issue cuts across various fields.
