Question Description

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 of the course text, read the media piece Why Facebook Could Be Good for Your Health (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., read the journal article “Social Relationships and Health,” and watch the video Research Ethics Involving Human Subjects (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..

Now that the literature review has been completed, the text reading this week covers how important theories can be highlighted that will support your research topic. For example, particular groups may naturally link to known theories, such as feminist theory for women’s perspectives, or queer theory for perspectives from the LGBTQ community. The text also covers extensive writing tips in regard to scholarly writing which can help you reflect and develop your own scholarly writing in coursework that requires research. A third aim of the discussion is to touch on the integral aspect of preparation for performing research, ensuring you have considered the ethical concerns and protections for your research participants or subjects.

In your initial post, address the following:

  • Describe a social theory that was discussed in the “Social Relationships and Health” journal article and indicate how it was used to support the research.
  • Choose one of the quantitative research results presented in the article; describe the evidence presented and indicate which variables of the experiment were highlighted.
  • Determine the article’s conclusion in regards to social relationships in society. Based on the accompanying media piece “Why Facebook Could Be Good for Your Health (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.,” how could modern social media sites support the research findings in the journal article?
  • The course text reading discussed how research can also use the transformative paradigm in social theory to impact social change. How does it do this and what types of societal populations can the transformative paradigm specifically impact?
  • An important aspect of impactful research is that it should be disseminated through a scholarly document such as a research report or journal article. The author of the course text provides some helpful tips in scholarly writing. What tips did you find most useful to further develop your own scholarly writing in course work which requires research papers or a project?
  • Lastly, a research study should always be ethically performed. According to the course text reading and your review of the video, “Research Ethics Involving Human Subjects (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.”, answer the following:
    • The Belmont Report of 1979 established three ethical principles for research. Name the three principles and explain each principle.
    • All Universities and Research Institutions are federally mandated to follow ethics guidelines in the research performed which include the principles of The Belmont Report of 1979 – name what this set of guidelines is commonly known as, and describe what it covers.

Your initial post should be at least 800 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

Describe a social theory that was discussed in the “Social Relationships and Health”
journal article and indicate how it was used to support the research.
Social relationship is one of the social theories that were described in the article by
House, Landis, and Umberson (1988) and whose selection is based on its influence on the
maintenance of the health and wellbeing of an individual. According to the scholars, social
relationships play a significant role in the quality of life that a person would enjoy due to its
effect that was stated earlier. Also, the outcome of the research studies showed that the potential
for individuals who are not integrated socially to commit suicide is higher their counterparts that
highly integrated into the society. Finally, House et al. (1988) supported their claim on the
impact of social relationship on the health and wellbeing of people by stating that the outcome of
their cross-sectional survey of the general population revealed that people that experience illhealth were found to have fewer and non-meaningful relationships with people.
Choose one of the quantitative research results presented in the article. Describe the
evidence presented and indicate which variables of the experiment were highlighted.
Berkman and Syme’s quantitative analysis of the mortality rate of the general population and the
role of the identified social ties in their occurrence in the sample size is selected for this part of
the discussion. First, it is a large quantitative study of 4,775 adults in California who are aged 30
to 68 years old. Secondly, the survey instrument consists of questions that examined the
importance of “four types of social ties including ma...
