Create a survey that examined the frequency of drug use in middle school children.

Imagine you were to create a survey that examined the frequency of drug use in middle school children. Referring back to the considerations for creating surveys presented in this module and in your textbook, what specific factors would you need to consider when developing this survey? Make sure you address considerations related to age (early adolescence) and nature of the topic (drug use).
Class–

For this research question, one issue to consider here is honesty in responding.  So, a survey might best be complemented by other types of designs in this particular scenario.  However, in the context of the survey itself, there are *many* possible strategies and factors to take into consideration, and I would like folks to focus on how we would design the questionnaire instrument itself–what questions would be included, and how would they be worded?  I found this

Identify the various research methods and theories used to study human behavior .

In this assignment, you will gain a deeper understanding of research methods as they devise a study and test out a hypothesis they have regarding human development.

Select one area in lifespan development that you would like to study further.

Identify a hypothesis about this area of development.
Identify the various research methods and theories used to study human behavior, and choose one of these methods.

Write a 700-word research design for your study in which you would evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of your chosen methodology.
For example, you can study how social development throughout the lifespan is affected by children born with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). You may hypothesize that children with FAS will have difficulties with peer relationships throughout their life. To study this, you may use a case study.
Set up this design, and discuss the various times throughout the lifespan you would study and also discuss how you might do this (structured interviews, observations, and so on)

Note: You do not have to actually complete the research; just develop the research based on a design and discuss how this design will aid in testing the hypothesis you developed. 

Format any citations in your research design according to APA guidelines.

For your Final Paper, you will demonstrate your knowledge of psychopathology and

For your Final Paper, you will demonstrate your knowledge of psychopathology and apply your skills to a realistic scenario. Throughout this course, you have developed unique knowledge and skill sets that will allow you to critically analyze depictions of psychopathology in popular media and historical case examples from an informed point of view.
Your Final Paper will be a psychological report that may be based on a character from a movie or a historical case study. Review the provided lists of movies and historical case studies that are approved for use in this assignment.  You must choose from these lists. You may not use examples from your personal life in the psychological report since doing so would be unethical (see Standards 2.04 and 9.01a in the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct).
As you create this report, you will be taking on the role of a clinician who is conducting an assessment and providing treatment recommendations for a patient (a character from your selected film or historical case study). Please note that a psychological report does not follow the same structure for reports you may have used in other courses. Your report must follow the format below and it must include each of the sections and their headings listed in this order:

Identifying Information
Within this section, you will describe basic information on your patient, including the person’s name, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, race, occupation, and location of residence (country, state, and region).
Chief Complaint/Presenting Problem
Within this section, you will include the patient’s primary complaint verbatim to identify the main source of his or her distress and/or concerns. If there is no verbatim complaint, include observable information to create an overall picture of the presenting problem.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to address the following question (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

What are the patient’s complaints? (e.g., the patient might complain about “feeling on edge” or experiencing stress)

Symptoms
Within this section, you will interpret specific behavioral issues and intrapsychic conflicts as they relate to abnormal behavior, behavior patterns, maladaptive thought processes, and potential unconscious conflicts. Interpret and comment on the patient’s chief complaint and/or presenting problem in the context and language of the symptoms found in the DSM-5. (e.g., the patient who complains about “feeling on edge” might actually be experiencing symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder or generalized anxiety disorder)
Personal History
Within this section, you will analyze your patient’s personal background and history of abnormal behavior(s) that inform your diagnostic impression. You will also gather information about the patient’s cultural background and cultural norms.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to answer the following questions (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

Where did the patient grow up?
What cultures did the patient experience throughout life?
What was the patient’s school life like?
What were his or her grades? What is his or her highest level of education?
What is the patient’s interpersonal relationship history?
What was/is the patient’s romantic relationship history?
What was/is the patient’s friendship history?

Family History
Within this section, you will analyze the patient’s familial relationship(s) and identify any abnormalities that might affect future treatment. You will also integrate information about the patient’s family and cultural background to identify any maladaptive behaviors and relational patterns.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to answer the following questions (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

How old were the patient’s parents when the patient was born?
Who were the patient’s primary caregivers?
What was/is family life like? (Include any information relevant to your diagnostic impression.)
Did the family move often?
What was/is the patient’s relationship with their siblings (if applicable)?
What culture did/does the family come from?
What belief systems are attached to that culture?

Therapy History
Within this section, you will describe the patient’s therapy history to inform your diagnostic impression. Analyze the patient’s therapy history to identify the effectiveness of previous treatment(s). Analyze previous treatment interventions based on information and knowledge of the patient’s cultural background.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to answer the following questions (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

Who was the previous therapist (if applicable)?
How long did the previous therapy/therapies last?
What was the patient’s diagnosis?
What interventions did the therapist(s) use?
Were those interventions appropriate for the patient’s culture?
Was treatment successful?

Medical Conditions
Within this section, you will analyze the patient’s medical history and comment on any possible medical conditions that could influence your diagnostic impression. Interpret specific behavioral issues as they relate to salient medical conditions. If the person has any medical conditions, indicate that in this section. Integrate information and knowledge about the patient’s cultural background as it affects treatment options for medical conditions.
Substance Use
Within this section, you will analyze and comment on the patient’s substance use to identify any potential issues that could influence your diagnostic impression. Interpret specific behavioral issues as they relate to substance use. If the person misuses specific substances, indicate that in this section. Integrate information and knowledge about the patient’s cultural background to inform your interpretation of substance misuse in this patient’s case.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to answer the following questions (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

Which substances does the patient use? (Include any over-the-counter, herbal, and/or prescription medications.)
For how long has the patient used the substance?
What is the patient’s quantity and frequency of use?

Collateral
Within this section, you will interpret specific collateral information as it relates to your patient’s abnormal behavior and behavior patterns. You will also integrate information and knowledge regarding the patient’s culture in your evaluation of the maladaptive behavior as reported by the collateral sources.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to answer the following questions (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

What do other people have to say about the patient’s behavior?
Are there any commonalities between the collateral sources’ reports?
Do the collateral sources have any psychological issues that might exacerbate the patient’s problems?
Are there any police reports?
Are there any personality testing or intelligence testing reports available?

Results of Evaluation
Within this section, you will analyze the patient’s behavior and mental processes. There are two parts to this section. To begin your analysis, you will write a brief evaluation of each theory of personality development that you learned about in this course and determine whether or not each theoretical orientation can be used to conceptualize the patient’s current situation and treatment goals. Next, use one major theoretical orientation to write an in-depth analysis for your results of evaluation section. Within the context of this theoretical perspective, you will analyze all of the information from the previous sections. Analyze specific behaviors, cognitions, and intrapsychic processes as they relate to your diagnostic impression. Integrate knowledge of the patient’s cultural background and norms within that culture as you prepare your supporting evidence.

Typically, this section within a psychological report seeks to answer the following question (further elaboration within this section is encouraged where possible):

 

Based on the information you gathered in the previous sections, what led to the patient’s current state?

Diagnostic Impression With Differential Justification
Within this section, you will provide your diagnosis for the patient. To demonstrate your understanding of diagnostic procedure and justification, specifically address each symptom that the patient displayed and relate each symptom to a diagnostic criterion in the DSM-5. Analyze the patient’s behaviors and mental processes within your differential justification. Clearly demonstrate that the patient meets criteria to be given a diagnosis. If the patient does not meet criteria for any diagnosis based on your assessment, explain why. Also, explore any alternative diagnoses and explain why these were not chosen.
Recommendations
Within this section, you will you provide treatment recommendations for the person to help them improve his or her quality of life. These recommendations must be based on the theoretical orientation you used in your Results of Evaluation. Explain why you chose your treatment intervention(s) and include peer-reviewed articles that support your choice(s). If treatment is not necessary, explain why. Pay close attention to the person’s culture since some treatment options may be insensitive to his or her culture or way of living.
