Research investigators often encounter the following saying: “A problem that goes unnoticed or ignored is a problem without a resolution.” Discuss a problem from the field of forensic psychology that you would like to have resolved through investigative research methods.

Question1: Read questions 1, 2, & 4 located in Critical and Creative Thinking Questions in Ch. 4 of Visualizing Psychology. Question 2: Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper describing an informal learning experience someone could have. • You may describe, for example, how someone becomes afraid of heights, why a particular food or smell moves him or her emotionally, or why he or she dislikes elevators. The experience must be concrete and can be singular or an experience that occurs over a longer period. Describe the experience by applying learning theories to the steps involved.

Your boss asks you to see a mother with her 3-year-old son. The mother brings her son to your office, and they are hostile toward each other. She states that he is hyperactive and has ADHD. She is demanding medication for him so she can manage his behavior. You request a session with her son for play therapy. During the 30 minutes of play therapy, he behaves appropriately with the toys in the room with no signs or symptoms of hyperactivity. However, when returned to the room with the mother, he exhibits hyperactivity and argumentative behavior.

Research investigators often encounter the following saying: “A problem that goes unnoticed or ignored is a problem without a resolution.”

Discuss a problem from the field of forensic psychology that you would like to have resolved through investigative research methods.

Use the following questions as guidelines for formulating the actual quantitative research question with respect to the problem that you identify:

  • What is the specific problem?
  • What is the evidence of the problem?
  • What do you suspect is causing the problem?
  • Is the research question clearly expressed without being too general or too narrow?
  • Does the question relate to the identified problem?
  • Is the research, based on the research question, feasible?
  • Will the research, based on the research question, add to the body of knowledge in the forensic psychology field?

After you submit your research question, read the responses of your classmates and critique the research question of at least two of them. To ensure each of your classmates receives feedback, please first respond to those who have not received any from your peers. Use these same questions as critique criteria in your response to other classmates:

  • Is the question clearly expressed without being too general or too narrow?
  • Does the question relate to the identified problem?
  • Are there any barriers to the research?
  • Will the research, based on the research question, add to the content body of knowledge?
  • Were these questions fully addressed?
    • What is the specific problem you are encountering?
    • What evidence do you have that there is a problem?
    • What do you suspect is causing the problem?
