Help in Structure of an APA Research Paper

Question- How should this Case Study Assignment be written APA (Structured, Formatted?) Can you explain or give me any samples, examples?

I already did the research! (Background, Present behavior, Theories, etc.) I just need to know How to Structure/format this type of Case Study paper. For instance, just explain and or show the correct structure of a paper like this. I am Not asking to have it done for me. Any help is appreciated!!! Thanks!

The purpose of Case Study 1 is to provide an opportunity to demonstrate course-related knowledge in speaking more "deeply" about one specific client. Your case study will identify specific behaviors and how those behaviors are evaluated in light of a specific theory. You will also identify ways that specific behaviors can be addressed in a manner consistent with the theories of your field.

Choose a case, circumstance, or situation at your site. If an appropriate case cannot be obtained from your site, then you may complete a case study on a historical or fictional character. You will need explicit permission from your instructor to use a historical or fictional character.

Discuss the following steps with your supervisor:
• Without violating confidentiality, provide background information on your subject (or group/situation), including behaviors observed, any medical information that is available, socio-cultural factors that might affect treatment, etc.
• Provide information about current behaviors, specifically maladaptive behaviors, and current treatment plans/progress.
• Using knowledge gained in your study of psychology in general and your cognate, in particular, provide a brief theoretical explanation of your case.

Using knowledge gained in your study of psychology in general and your cognate, in particular, identify a treatment plan detailing how you would continue to work with this case. (This treatment plan may be hypothetical.)

The paper must fulfill the following criteria:
• 3-4 pages
• Current APA format
• This document must maintain the strictest level of confidentiality.
