System Design

System Design Single system design can be a rigorous method used in implementing the evidence-based practice process. This method allows practitioners to monitor client progress, although there are obstacles that may prevent rigorous data collection. These potential obstacles include client crises that may not allow practitioners to collect sufficient baseline data; heavy caseloads, which increase the difficulty of collecting repeated measures; peers and supervisors who may not recognize the value of single case research; and clients who may resent extensive monitoring. In a single system design you can choose from several types of designs, including •AB: The basic single case design •ABAB: Withdrawal/reversal design •ABA: Multiple-baseline design Using these models, you can get different types of graphic representations with A representing the baseline phase and B representing the experimental phase. (The chart will be email to the writer.) This is a line graph displaying different representations of single system design with observation points making up the X axis and level of depression making up the Y axis. With that in mind, you analyze the strengths and weaknesses of single system design. In which you present an analysis of single system design in which you: •Summarize the strengths and weaknesses of single system design. •Describe how you can overcome identified weaknesses and build on the strengths of the single system design. •Explain how likely you are to use this evaluation method in your practice and why or why not. •Identify the case design you think is the most useful to your practice and research
