Question description

Prior to completing this discussion, please interact with the Applied Psychology learning object located in the left navigation bar for this week, ensure that you have read the required chapters in your text, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance, which will help prepare you for this activity.

Identify your degree program (e.g., psychology, education, applied behavioral sciences) and what you hope to do after graduation. Then, based on your review of the course materials for the week, define applied psychology in your own words and describe how evidence-based practice informs your intended profession. Address the following as you respond:

  • Why do we do what we do in a given job?
  • Do we progress through trial and error, or do we base our efforts on previous research? Some of both? Remember, evidence-based practice refers to things we do or use based on proof from research.
  • Provide examples to illustrate or support your descriptions.

Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words and you must utilize at least one scholarly source (e.g., the course textbook, a peer reviewed article from the Ashford University Library, or a professional web source) that is cited according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. For further assistance in researching scholarly sources, please access the tutorials page on the Ashford University Library website.
