Psychology research

Order Instructions/Description

 

Will give info on readings to use as some of the references

Making use of the readings of the unit, post a brief but thoughtful reply to answer the Reflection Question, “What do you think it means to do research in psychology, human sciences, or organizational systems, as one who ascribes to humanistic, transpersonal, or existential points of view?” If these points of view are relevant for you, has your literature review so far provided useful materials connected to these perspectives?

Important note: Without direct quotation, paraphrasing in your own words, be sure to include clear citation in your text of sources that provided the basis of your contribution, which in conventional scholarly format means (author, year, page numbers), so that peers and the instructor may know and go to these sources to become informed and contribute further to the discussion.
