Literature Review

Analyze foundational research presented in the course for how the field of abnormal psychology has changed over time, how researchers have designed research to study psychopathology, and how issues of ethics have been addressed historically in the field. A. Summarize the claims made by the authors of the foundational research presented in the course regarding how diagnoses and treatments for psychological disorders have developed. In other words, what claims are made by the research about how psychological disorders are diagnosed in individuals? About how individuals with psychological disorders are treated? B. Summarize the claims made by the authors of the foundational research presented in the course regarding how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors contribute to the development of psychological disorders. C. Explain how the view of psychopathology has evolved over the history of abnormal psychology. Be sure to support your analysis with examples from research to support your claim. D. Explain the conclusions you can reach about research in abnormal psychology. In other words, explain what we know about psychopathology, based on your review of the research presented in the course. Be sure to support your analysis with examples from research to support your claim. E. Describe the specific research designs used in the foundational research presented in the course used to address research questions. For example, what were the specific methods used to address the research question? What type of research design was used? F. Explain how research designs were used by authors to conduct research in abnormal psychology. In other words, how did the research designs used by researchers help in conducting research regarding abnormal psychology? G. Discuss how issues of ethics have been addressed in the foundational research presented in the course. For example, how did the authors inform the participants of what the experiment would entail? How did the authors account for any potential risks to participants associated with the study? H. Discuss how issues of ethics in abnormal psychology have been viewed historically. In other words, how have issues of ethics in the field been viewed over time? Has this view changed as the field has progressed?

identify a gap in the research you have reviewed, explain how the research supports further exploration of that aspect of abnormal psychology, and develop a research question addressing the gap. You will then determine an appropriate research design and explain how it could be implemented and how you will account for issues of ethics in your proposed research question. A. Identify a gap in abnormal psychology research presented in the course that is unexplored or underdeveloped. For example, is there an unexplored aspect of abnormal psychology you believe could be further explored? B. Develop a basic research question addressing the identified gap. In other words, create a question that you could answer in potential research further investigating your identified gap. Be sure to support your developed research question with examples from research to support your claims. C. Determine an appropriate research design that addresses your research question regarding abnormal psychology, and explain why it was chosen. Be sure to support your response with examples from your analysis and the research presented in the course that supports the determined research design. D. Explain how you will account for issues of ethics associated with your proposed research. In other words, how will you ensure that issues of ethics associated with your proposed research have been managed appropriately? Be sure to support your analysis with examples from research to support your claims. E. Explain how your approach to accounting for issues of ethics was informed by your review of the research presented in the course. In other words, address the issues of ethics that you were able to inrnrnnrate in urn ir nwn riecinn?
