Assignment – Week 9

In this case study, the counselor, Steven, has collected data from his clients after participation in a psychoeducation therapy group. Steven wants to know whether his program effectively met the needs of the clients. He is interested in learning whether the clients met their program outcomes and whether the program evaluation data supports his desire to expand the program.

For this Assignment, you will review the data and determine whether the service contributed to client success.
