Question Description

Hello, I have to write a research paper for current ongoing class which will include following section:

  1. Research topic proposal. (you have to currently help me with this)
  2. Annotated bibliography ( I will make another post for this and other work)
  3. Research paper outline
  4. Research paper

Currently you have to work on (1) where I have to propose a topic.
I am attaching instruction and a sample paper.

A paragraph with 3-4 sources should be enough for proposal

I will attach the list of topic after we hand shake. I will also tell what topic I am thinking to write and other details later.

I would like my topic to be about grief that young adults experience when they suffer the loss of a romantic relationship. I would like to focus specifically on the disenfranchised grief that young adults feel when others dismiss or devalue their suffering. My paper will include the reasons why this is detrimental to their recovery and it will present approaches and techniques that may be used in grief counseling that can help young adults grieve appropriately and recover from the loss of their relationship. Kelly, G. F. (1981). Loss of loving: A cognitive therapy approach. Personnel & Guidance Journal, 59(6), 401-404. doi:10.1002/j.2164-4918.1981.tb00582.x Robak, R. W., & Weitzman, S. P. (1998). The nature of grief: Loss of love relationships in young adulthood. Journal of Personal & Interpersonal Loss, 3(2), 205-216.
Research Paper Assignment The final paper (1850 to 2000 words-not including your title page or references) will be a research paper in which you are expected to write on a problem or issue relevant to African American Issues in Psychology. Possible paper ideas vary greatly. General ideas to think about include: • • • • • The development of African American psychology The role of religion and spirituality in African American life The influence of racism on various aspects of African American life Academic achievement in African Americans Mental health issues in African Americans. Your topic should be more specific than the above general categories. I have also included a more specific list of topics to consider but your topics should be something such as “How stereotype threat impacts the academic achievement of African American high school students.” Remember though that you must have 3 to 4 sentences for your topic proposal. As part of this paper, you should offer some type of solution to the problem of issue proposed if your paper addresses a problem or issue. How to get ideas about papers: • • • Think of the areas of African American psychology that really interest you. Enter some of these terms as keywords in a search engine such as PsycLit and read abstracts to see what kind of research is out there. Starting with review articles may be most helpful. Browse various psychology journals such as the Journal of Black Psychology or Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology. Email me and we can discuss options. *Remember, if there is no research on it in peer reviewed journals, then it is not an appropriate topic for a paper. Also, you need to make sure there are at least 10 peer reviewed articles on the subject. You are to review a body of literature (at least 10 peer reviewed articles), synthesize the readings, suggest holes in the body of literature after evaluating it, and propose next steps for future researchers. Show me that you understand the problems with the research and what should be done next. What to do • Include a title page and reference page. • Start working on the paper early. • Read journal articles and take notes on the articles before you begin to write the paper. The will help you avoid plagiarism. • Use APA style • Visit the Writing Center to get help with making your paper stronger. • Have a strong thesis statement and keep your paper focused on it. What not to do • Do not use websites such as Wikipedia to get information for your paper. Your sources should be more credible. • Do not use quotes. Your paper should be in your own words. • Do not include pictures in your paper (including the cover page) unless approved by me. • Do not include personal stories in your paper. • Do not just summarize the studies you review. Briefly summarize and show that you have thought critically about what you have found. Good Luck!

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
