Walden University Week 5 Purpose Statement and Framework Discussion Paper

Walden University

Question Description

I need help with a Psychology question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Creswell (2018) compares a theory to a rainbow that connects a study’s variables to a researcher’s expectations or predictions (p. 51). If you are defining and addressing variables in your study, you may have already identified theories that inform what you are predicting or expecting to find as you conduct your study. Even if you have not identified a particular theory that informs your study, you will need to relate your study to significant concepts in your field’s literature for your work to be meaningful.

For this Discussion, you address what you plan to accomplish in your proposed study, and you describe the framework that informs the study.

Write an explanation of the purpose or intention of your proposed study. If you are planning on conducting a quantitative study, state what needs to be studied by describing two or more factors (variables) and a conjectured relationship among them related to the identified gap or problem.
If you are planning a qualitative study, justify the need for increased understanding about the issue to be studied. Cite at least two references to support the need for increased understanding about the issue.

Then, conclude your post with a description of the study’s theoretical or conceptual framework.

If your framework is theoretical:

  • Describe the theory(s) related to the topic you selected for your dissertation.
  • Describe the theory(s) and justify how it (they) may be appropriate to introduce your topic or to provide necessary background for your topic.

If your framework is conceptual:

  • If there are no established theories related to your topic, identify concepts or models in the literature, explaining why they are relevant to the topic of your study.

The Impact of Stress and Depression on the Effectiveness of Police Officers
Purpose of the study
The primary purpose of this study is to understand the impact of stress and depression on
the effectiveness of police officers. Just like in any other work environment, police offices
underdo a significant amount of stress that can have negative impacts on their performance. The
introduction of this paper alludes to the fact that "the cumulative effect of the pressure and long
working hours that the officers go through usually have adverse effects on them. In the long run,
many police officers end up being stressed and eventually getting depressed so much that they
experience poor health”. The primary role of any police officer is to maintain law and order. For
