Mind-Body Problem- Too Broad for APA Paper?3Stephanie23-222017-10-02 04:02:01
I have chosen the mind-body problem as the subject for my term paper, in which we are to cite EVERY sentence. I was wondering if there was a way to narrow this topic down because we are only alloted 7-10 pages of space to write- what with a minimum of 30 sources, my references will take up 2 pages alone. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated and thanks! PS- I have to focus on the history of psychology, not present day psychology... so think along the lines of descartes, plato, ect..[View Answers]

Can I work as a Chatered Psycholgist in the US Having Qualified in the UK?0good2012-11-05 21:38:53
I am currently studying towards a Degree in Psychology. I have already decided that I would like to study either Forensic or Clinical Psychology post grad. If I do this in the UK will I be eligible for registration with the APA (American Psychological Assoc) or will I have to complete more courses in America to prove my competencies or would the qualifications be automatically transferrable allowing me to go straight into a job? Any other advice on getting jobs or funding for post grad study would also be very helpful, Thanks![View Answers]

APA format psychology citing?0tinkle2012-11-05 03:09:50
like many psychology books, my texts are basically compilations of other people's thesis, essays, and research, edited by the "author" of the book. Because of this, do I have to cite each article, rather than the whole book? how do I cite? Also, when I do in-text citing, do i put the original author and the original date or do i put the new edited date?[View Answers]

Earning a Psychology Degree from a non-APA accredited program? (Still NCATE, NASP &Regionally Accredited?0LILIANA2012-11-04 12:57:55
Hi there and thanks for checking out my Q. =) First, I am a first year graduate student studying School Psychology at Ohio State University. I am in the Educational Specialist program. What I want to do in life, however, will require a PhD so I am looking to transfer next year. Here's the problem: The option has been presented to me to switch to the PhD program within the school. I am so tempted to stay here because I enjoy the program, my specialization, the faculty, location and the ease of just transferring into the PhD program (only based on GPA and letters of rec). PROBLEM: the PhD program is not APA accredited. They are, however, NASP, NCATE and regionally accredited. However, the program follows all of APA standards and meets each and every one of them. They told me that they are not seeking accreditation because it is too expensive. Is APA accreditation that important? I am worried about having to work in other states and being able to find jobs. Do employers ask about this? I am 100% sure I can get licensed because the school follows APA standards and 100% of its graduates that sought licensure received it. Any advice from School Psychs and other professionals in Psych would be helpful. Also, anyone who is in a grad/undergrad program considering a PhD can also chime in. Thanks =)[View Answers]
I'm a single mommy that works full time and wants to go to an online school for Psychology...?0questiongirl2012-11-04 08:24:02
I've herd many things and talked to many different colleges. I have a friend that has her Masters in the field of Psychology. I'm nervous that I wouldn't be taken seriously with an online degree. Not to mention my friend tipped me off that Maryland is picky and wanted me to make sure that the college I picked is APA certified. Apparently through some blogs between different Masters in the field felt that if I held a BA degree or even a Master's degree, showing an ONLINE University that employers would laugh and take the next guy that took the time to actually go to the College and have hands on training. It's perfectly reasonablee, I understand that may be true but with my circumstances it's impossible to attend in person...Please if anyone could give me insight and possibly some links to Online Psychological Colleges that Maryland would accept...I would be forever grateful because I can't seem to find anything that etches any one school in stone for being safe (as in I can get a job with time time and loads of money I will pay for my degree) in Maryland to guarantee my degree isn't a joke to everyone but me...[View Answers]

NEED HELP WITH ENGLISH PAPER?0gianina2012-11-02 20:31:09
PLEASE help me finish this...APA style. Mostly need help with the discussion and conclusion.... Introduction Rather it is rap or rock people like music in one way or another. From listening to Barney when we’re young, to growing up and listening to rap songs that portray women in negative way, talking about killing their own brothers over drugs, and other illegal acts. The fact that we go from one completely different genre of music to the extreme opposite is perplexing. Is it due to the fact that, music is nothing more than a phase changing due to our maturity? What are the most popular genre to each age group and how come it varies? I will be looking at the most popular and, least popular genres of music according to age and, asking why is it that each age group likes the music they like. Literature Review When the listener is listening to classical music, their heart rate slows down, when the listener is listing to heavy metal their heart rate is faster along with the rate of breathing, our overall cardiovascular health, according to B David Ferrel (Ranked #6 expert in Psychology &Psychiatry), “elements of music are related to the role it plays on the human psyche”. This research is according to age, culture, what that person has been exposed to. Christine G. White submitted a thesis to the faculty of the Virginia Polytechnic and State University on the subject of music preference stating that “As people age, they move through different social settings in which different kinds of culture, including musical opinion will change.” Christine also goes on to say that isolation, usually leads to a negative judgment of music no matter the age of the person. Method A musical survey with questions both personal and opinionated about musical genre preference and age is the procedure used in the survey. There is a total of ten surveys, and they were taken to my work place and given to a group of co-works ages ranging from categories nine to fifteen, to, forty-one to fifty years old and asked to rate the different genres of music according to a zero to five scale, (zero being, don’t like that genre at all, to five being loves that specific genre.) Genres of music include assorted rock, Jazz, International, assortment of Country, Opera and many others. Results A survey collected from the age range of nine to fifteen rated pop, and alternative as the top favorite, giving them a five out of five. Metal gets a total of four points out of five and, all other genres with a score of two and under most all being zero. Three surveys with age group of nineteen to twenty-five choose soft rock as a favorite with a accumulative of fourteen out of fifteen possible points. This is followed by oldies (1950-70) with 13 points, country, and alternative at 12. The least liked genre of this age group is texmex with only three points. Another, three surveys age group from twenty-six to thirty chooses alternative as their favorite genre giving it a total of fourteen out of fifteen points. International and metal come in second with twelve points. Lastly, rockabilly, texmex, and, religious come in as the least favorite genre with only one point. Two survey’s collected from age group of thirty-one to forty say’s that classic rock, metal, and oldies (1950-70) is their favorite genre, giving it a ten out of ten total points. The least favorite genre picked by this age group includes reggae, religious, texmex, and rockabilly giving each one a two out of ten points. The last age range surveyed was forty-one to fifty with only one collected. This age group chooses classic rock as their favorite genre and folk, blues, international, and indie as their least favorite giving a zero to each category. Discussion It seems both authors are correct in saying that music preference is different among different age group because as people grow up it depends on how they form their personalities. This how people come to enjoy the music they enjoy. I think as a person ages their surrounds and social groups have the biggest role in what music people enjoy. Speculations and inferentially...
