Research Paper Instructions
Write a professional research paper of 7–8 pages (not counting your title page or references page/bibliography) investigating PTSD in relation to a specific trauma, population, symptom or co-occuring disorder. At minimum, the paper should include a brief summary of PTSD (including key symptoms), exploration of treatment options or ways to serve those impacted by PTSD, and integration of a Biblical worldview or Scriptural principles. You may include additional information based on your interest area. The paper should be written in APA or Turabian style; however, you DO NOT need an abstract if writing in APA style.
There are a plethora of options for the topic of this paper that you may pursue based on your cognate of study and career/ministry goals. Some examples include: PTSD and a specific trauma: domestic violence, natural disasters, sexual assault, military sexual trauma, combat, etc. PTSD and a specific population: PTSD in children, military, missionaries, clergy, first responders, etc or PTSD and a co-occuring disorder (eating disorders, substance abuse, suicide, depression). Students will be given feedback on their proposed research paper topic in Week 2.
The paper must have a minimum of 8 scholarly references published in the last 8 years. You may have older sources and/or additional sources, but there must be a minimum of eight published in the last eight years. The paper is to be written in a professional manner using APA or Turabian style, and sources must be peer reviewed journal articles or published books/papers. Please do not use this paper as a personal journal or to explain lived-experience with PTSD, trauma or combat stress. Also, avoid using popular websites as references (ex: Wikipedia). Balance the paper with both a biblical worldview and theoretical perspectives. The paper is worth 150 points.
Length of paper: 7-8 pages – Points will be deducted if the paper is below 7 pages (not including title page and references/bibliography).
Include at least 8 current references (within the last 8 years) – points deducted for each missing current reference.
Follow current APA or Turabian format. Review APA or Turabian Grading Template for guidance and grading factors.
Paper will be graded on thoroughness, content, and use of theoretical material and integration of biblical perspective.
Plagiarism – Using or passing off someone else’s work as your own is a serious academic offense. Papers are submitted through SafeAssign to check for the proper treatment of sources. You may submit a draft version to check your score and then redo and submit.
Plagiarizing your paper will result minimally in failure of the assignment. Plagiarizing can also result in automatic failure of the course and academic discipline. Please make sure that all work is your own or is cited appropriately.
