➢ Personal Reflection Paper on Client Capacity to Change Behavior (200pts.)—due Unit 3
You will turn in a Personal Reflection Paper on Client Capacity to Change Behavior paper that is completed using Times New Roman, 12-point font in the headers and throughout the body of the paper. You must include a title and reference page.
You should include in-text citations. This paper MUST be between 5-6 pages, not including the title page and references page. That means that the body of the paper must be between 5-6 pages. You must include at least 3 peer-reviewed references that are no older than 7 years old (3-5 years old is ideal) and you will be allowed to use your textbook as one of those three references. Students who fail to use Times New Roman, 12-point font in both the headers and throughout the body of the paper, use references older than 7 years, have a page limit that goes below five pages or over six pages, or improperly cite authors using first and middle initials will automatically lose half credit on this assignment.
