just please read everything I posted. There is a section on self care. Below is what I would incorporate into this. As for the textbook, I can always add on to the paper and cite in one area, however the text book section that applies to this also can be found in other areas. It does say I have to use 6 scholarly resources. APA Code of ethics counts.

Thank you,
