The issue/problem to be considered critically is stated clearly and described comprehensively, delivering all relevant information necessary for full understanding.

a. Prevalence:

In your submission, be sure to include the critical elements listed below:

§ Research and justify the selection of a theoretically supported and effective intervention strategy for addressing the target issue.

· Efficacy: Analyze and critique at least two established intervention strategies for inconsistencies and effectiveness.

i. Critically examine intervention strategies for consistency.
