utilized multiple methods to collect data from the participants. The following are the tests utilized in this study to obtain relevant information from participants; EFI, BDI-II, CSEL, STAI, SSTAEL, and the Vulnerability to drug scale (2004). Lin et al., did provided adequate information on the assessment tools utilized and their importance to the study (2004). The article also mentioned that the Vulnerability to drug scale was given inside the treatment facility possibly allowing for unreliable data collected for the study. Since the assessments were not given anonymously it is possibly that individuals were influenced with their responses creating a bias in the results of the assessments (Lin et al., 2004).

The Authors Kress & Hoffman offers an extensive approach for the treatment goals of the sexual abuse survivors thought a theoretical perspective to help the victims of the abuse to integrate their abuse experience while keeping in their self-esteem as well as how we as therapists can help the survivors to connect with their personal strengths which can facilitate in their growth and development. I have observed through this journal about a treatment goal which integrates the survivors experience & preserving their self-esteem, which will be a most effective way in boosting up their confidence and change of their self-image. The reason I feel the authors have pin-pointed and wanted to work on the self-image of the survivors was because of the wrong perspectives which they develop about themselves after being victimized. For example: They start to believe that they are defective, damaged or flawed and blame themselves for the abuse. The author’s approach to the survivors of abuse by administering Solution-Focused Erickson as a group therapy was a very clever move.
The first article I chose came from the Mid-Western Educational Researcher, titled "Cheating Perceptions and Prevalence Across Academic Settings." Kelly Honz, a high school teacher; and Kenneth A. Kiewra and Ya-Shu Yang, both university professors, wrote and published it April 1, 2010. The peer-reviewed article was found on EBSCOhost with the keywords "academic honesty." The article discussed the results of the Academic Honesty Survey of high school students, which determined that the students all shared similar traditional perceptions of what constituted as cheating, and what setting a student had cheated or were tempted to cheat in most. While this article had little to no bearing on this paper on hand, it gave some interesting information-- what a student would most likely cheat at.
