A NNOTATED B IBLIOGRAPHY I NDIVIDUAL S UBMISSION (16 P OINTS ) Although your textbook does a good job of discussing the research that supports our knowledge of psychological disorders, it is not possible for the authors to describe all important research studies. The goals of this assignment are to: (1) engage you in the literature review process, which is important to both research and clinical work, (2) update and expand your knowledge of psychological disorders with recent research findings, and (3) improve your ability to convey important information concisely and clearly , which is a necessary skill for clinicians and researchers alike. Moreover, this assignment will help you with the rest of your group project, as it can become part of your Introduction section and will help you generate hypotheses. W HAT D OES T HIS A SSIGNMENT I NVOLVE ? (1) You will perform a literature search to locate one *research * article on the psychological problem/disorder that is the focus of your group’s project. * A research article will have both a Methods and a Results section in it. If you are reading an article without these sections, then you are not using an appropriate article! (2) You will need to carefully read your article in order to summarize it and create your annotated bibliography. In your summary, you should describe all of the following: the rationale for performing the study – e.g. what are the researchers trying to show and why ; what theories are they drawing from? (Don’t just restate the title!) the basic methods used to perform the study – e.g. who participated; how many participants were there; what kinds of things (e.g. measures, tasks) did they do? the important results of the study – e.g. what did the researchers find?
