Internalizing problems of adolescent
Main topic: The issue of internalizing problems of adolescent with a focus on depression and suicide.
This paper is a capstone paper demonstrating your ability to utilize material in the textbook to better explain the issues of internalizing problems of adolescent with a focus on depression and suicide.
The goal of this paper is to demonstrate your ability to apply book material to some specific context of adolescence. 3 full pages of text and in APA format. The 3 pages doesn’t include cover page, and citation page.
You must have at least two research-based articles or research-based book chapters (2) that provide a good background about your adolescent issue (the textbook doesn’t count for one of the two). In the paper, you will briefly introduce your issue and establish why it is important to adolescents.
Next, provide a review of literature about what is currently known about your topic based on your two research articles or research-based book chapters. This first part should take about half of your paper. In the remaining part of your paper explain how the material in the text might improve our understanding of your issue by considering it within at least three of the developmental and contextual topics covered in the book (e.g. physiological, cognitive, psychosocial, family, peers, school, etc.).
For example, how might the changes that are occurring during pubertal or cognitive development be important to adolescents’ decisions about whether to engage in sexual intercourse or use illegal substances. For this section of the paper, you will need to be able to think about your chosen issue in ways that may not have been considered yet in the research. Also, in order to effectively use class materials in considering your adolescent issue, you will need to be able to think about how these materials might operate beyond what was covered in the textbook. Support your use of material using textbook.
