A summary is provided for each study that includes the problem, purpose, research question, null hypothesis, study design, raw data, method of analysis of the data, and the results. Address the following questions for each of the 4 simulated research studies in a well-developed paragraph that has a logical flow using current APA format. What type of study design is used? Please explain. Does the study design accurately test the null hypothesis? Is the correct statistical test used to analyze the data? Why? Why not? Regardless of whether or not the correct statistical test was used, are the results statistically significant? Social science research uses a p value of .05 to determine statistical significance. Does the researcher reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis? What are the implications of the results for the study and the counseling field? This assignment will be submitted through SafeAssign and LiveText/Tevera. This assignment is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 7. Simulated Research Study #1 Clients who enter residential treatment for substance abuse demonstrate difficulties correctly identifying emotions in themselves and others, regulating emotions, and using positive coping skills to deal with their emotions. The purpose of the study is to quantify the level of emotional understanding, as well as other skills related to emotional intelligence among substance abusers. Do substance abusers have a different level of emotional understanding than the general population? The researchers used a convenience sampling method to obtain a sample of 40 substance abusers who have just entered residential treatment. The participants completed the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) to measure their emotional intelligence. Note: the ability- based model of emotional intelligence measures four branches: 1) the ability to identify emotions in facial expressions, 2) the ability to use emotional information to facilitate thoughts, 3) the ability to understand emotions, and 4) the ability to regulate emotions in the self and others.
