Session 1 Journal Article Review
Find a scholarly, peer reviewed, full-text journal article on any topic pertaining to developmental psychology. CCU library’s online full-text journal article search will be helpful in completing this assignment. You may access the CCU library website by clicking on the Clifton Fowler Library link in the left sidebar for this course.
Your article needs to be peer-reviewed, which means experts in the field have reviewed it to ensure its credibility before its publication. In other words, Psychology Today is not an appropriate source, but the International Journal of Group Psychotherapy is appropriate. On the CCU Library website, you can choose to have results limited to only those that have been peer-reviewed and those that are full-text by selecting these options when searching topics. After selecting the “Articles” yellow tab and searching for your topic, click the “Full Text” and “Peer Reviewed” boxes that appear in the left sidebar of your search results to filter only articles that match this criteria and your selected search topic. Reading only an abstract is not sufficient for this assignment; articles must be full-text.
After reading your selected article in full, write a summary paper that is two to three pages (not including your cover page and reference page) in length and follows APA writing guidelines. The following should be included in your summary paper:
What was the purpose for this study?
Identification of participant demographics.
For example, was the study made up of 20 college-aged students at a small liberal arts college or 500 participants referred by inpatient psychiatric hospitals?
What were the results of this study?
What other factors should be considered when making conclusions about the results?
Include a biblical perspective on the topic using relevant Scripture to support your viewpoint.
Include in the reference page a link to the journal article for easy access.
This paper should be two to three pages in length (in addition to a cover page and reference page) and should meet the expectations outlined in the grading rubric. Please use Kail & Cavanaugh (2019) in addition to your journal article for a reference (make sure to reference both on your reference page) and include relevant Scripture references.
To practice searching for appropriate articles on the CCU library website, search for the following full-text journal article and review it to see an example of an appropriate article on this topic. However, you may not use this particular article for your paper:
