Please follow the instructions attached. his week you will review all you have learned to date and begin reading Chapter 7, which is about learning Problem Formulation. In research, we must define the problem and then develop a research question. Discuss this chapter with your team. On page 147 you will read the following “Just wording a broad topic in question form does not guarantee that you will have a good research question. The question needs to be narrow and specific. Thus, “Is childhood sexual abuse an important issue in the treatment of depression among women?” would be a better research question if it were worded as, “What proportion of women currently in treatment for major depression report having been sexually abused as a child?” Think about this statement, for the discussion this week, present a topic of interest, and then provide a research question that will be appropriate for a study. The purpose of this is to practice going from the general to the specific. You will also state the type of study as presented in Figure 7.2 that best fits your research question as related to:
1) Research Purpose
2) Research Question
