“How-to” Guide

Description This project will require you to synthesize a body of relationship literature (from peer-reviewed journal articles or book chapters) and provide a practical guide that would be suitable for public use. Some examples include: How to Optimize Attraction, How to Improve the Quality of Your Relationship, How to Cope Following a Break-Up, etc. Here are a couple examples of “how to” type guides online: https://www.psychologytoday.
