Case Study Selection

Listen to the short podcast lecture on the assignment page of your online course to get helpful tips for completing this assignment.  This week you will select a case study you want to examine throughout the course. Each case study presents a topic and area of psychology. These topics will be used to study specific areas of psychology and will provide you with an opportunity to examine the uses of applied behavioral science. For example, if you select Case Study #1, you will explore the topic of severe depression from the clinical psychology perspective. If you select Case Study #5, you will explore motivation from the industrial organizational psychology perspective. For each case, you will also indicate why this topic and area of psychology are of interest to you. See the attached ABS200 Case Study List to review the case studies and make your choice.

The paper should clearly identify your case study selection, explain why you have decided to focus on this particular topic and area of psychology for your Final Paper, and explain the importance of the topic. Begin your paper with a well-written introduction that includes a succinct thesis statement, and end your paper with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis.  For assistance with creating a thesis statement, utilize the Thesis Generator tool on the Ashford University Writing Center website.

The paper should be one- to- two  pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. Your paper must contain at least one reference from a scholarly source that is cited according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.  Examples of scholarly sources include peer reviewed journal articles, research studies, professional websites with authored material, and government websites.  Popular Internet sites (Wikipedia, Newsweek, New York Times, etc.) are not considered scholarly sources. For further assistance in determining whether or not a site is scholarly, please access the Evaluating Web Resources tutorial on the Ashford University Library website.
