Question Description

Ashford 5: - Week 4 - Assignment

Annotated Bibliography for the Article Review Final Paper

This week, you will research and create an annotated bibliography of five peer-reviewed articles that were published within the last 10 years and relate to the article you selected in Week Two for your Article Review. The peer-reviewed articles you select should be researched in the Ashford University Library and represent a variety of viewpoints on the subject matter. They may support or refute the information presented in your chosen article for review. Each of the peer-reviewed articles must include a complete reference that is correctly formatted in APA style as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center and an annotation of five to six well-developed sentences in your own words that summarize the source and describe its applicability to your selected topic. Please note that no sections from the abstracts of the articles should be included in your annotation.

In your annotation for each peer-reviewed article, analyze psychology as a science as it is presented in the article and explain how it relates to this particular topic. Assess the professional roles presented in the article and describe how they relate to the roles as presented in the article you have chosen for review. Explain any psychological theoretical perspectives presented in the article and how they either support or refute the information provided in the review article. Evaluate contemporary applications of psychology as they are described in the article and compare these to the descriptions within the article for review.

of extreme stress: The empirical foundation of a complex adaptation to
trauma. Journal of traumatic stress, 18(5), 389-399.

In this article, Van der Kolk et al., (2005) argues that post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD) has been observed to be a colossally helpful diagnostic construct with relevance to
various victim populaces and with its own particular neurobiology and therapeutics.
Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that while men are most of the time traumatized by
attacks, war, mishaps and cataclysmic events, being abused as children is by a long shot the most
regular reason for traumatization in ladies. However, only a limited aspect of posttraumatic
psychopathology is clearly captured by PTSD, particularly in children. Commonly referred to as
“comorbid conditions” in the PTSD literature, these are psychiatric problems that do not fall
within the framework of PTSD, as though they happened independently from the PTSD side
effects. Such problems include eating disorders, borderline and antisocial personality, as well as
substance abuse. By placing them in the category of seemingly unrelated “comorbid” conditions,
