The researches are attempting to draw a between the two variables in specific populations. The strengths of a correlation design is that it allows the researches to examine a large number of variables in a single study, it also provides an evaluation of the strength of the relationship between two variables and it provides the ground work for future studies. The limitations of a correlation design is that it may be affected by extraneous variables which may not allow the researches to draw a conclusionabout causality. ReferencesHouser, J. (2018).

I feel that the Breathing Space Clinic was very impactful in making the participants feel more valuable and in control of their lives.As I shared, my brother passed within 6 months of his diagnosis. He didn't have the opportunity to enjoysuch a great clinical experience as mentioned in this study.
