8 Assessment 8 Formative: Literature Search (Term 1) Ethics Worksheet (Term 1) Interview Protocol (Term 2) Method Workbooks x 2 (1 quantitative & 1 qualitative: Term 1 & 2) Summative Research Report x 2 = 100% Tutor Led

9 Areas Covered in Term 1 Labs 9 Forensic &Counselling Areas: Intimate partner violence Self-harm in prisoners Drug treatment therapies Mental illness and crime Statistical Techniques Descriptive and screening techniques Types of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA): one-way independent groups; one way repeated measures; two-way independent groups Post-hoc tests: Bonferonni, t-tests; Simple-effects analyses Tests of homogeneity of variance and covariance Others: Ethics in Applied Psychology Database and literature searching Tutor Led

10 Rules of engagement! 10 Relaxed teaching format in the laboratory classes Encourage student cooperation and group-work Tutor-led aspects of the laboratory Listening periods where the tutor explains concepts Student-led aspects of the laboratory Cooperative, talkative, interactive Students may take a break but must consider their fellow students Tutor LedStudent Led Tutor Led

11 Logging into the computer 11 Different to that for other university computers, and different to Unihub Username: your ITuserID E.g. AA1234 Password: your student number E.g. M Tutor Led

12 Today’s Session 12 Get in to groups of 3,4, or 5 Aim is to develop a research idea and translate it in to a research hypothesis for either: Intimate partner violence Self-harm in prisoners Open psy2005 folder > Week 2 Open Workbook1(week2).docx Tutor Led

13 Developing Research Ideas (Week 2) 13 Title: Key words: Introduction (Max. 250 words): Hypothesis Methods Participants: Design: Materials: Procedure: References To be submitted on UniHub by one member of the group Tutor Led

14 Conducting a Literature Search 14 Intimate partner violence Key words to start your search: intimate partner violence; Marital violence; Marital aggression; dating violence; family violence Associated key words for further research: Child abuse; pathological gambling; alcoholism; stress; aggression. Self-harm in prisoners: Key words to start your search: self-harm; suicide; attempted suicide; self-injurious behaviour Associated key words for further search: psychiatric disorders; prison; psychological factors; women; social factors; cognitive behavioural therapy Tutor Led

15 Literature Searching: Google Scholar 15 Tutor Led

17 Papers in Relevant Folders: IPV 17 Helfrtiz et al. (2006): Empirical study that investigates the usefulness of self-report in assessing men accused of domestic violence. (Uses ANOVAs) Herrenkohl et al. (2008): Review of the link between child abuse and exposure to domestic violence (may be used to generate ideas) Wittenberg et al. (2007). Qualitative study on the effect of IPV on health. Key areas of health could be further investigated. Student Led

18 Papers in Relevant Folders: Self-Harm 18 Marzano et al. (2009): Qualitative study that explores the subjective experiences of survivors of near-fatal self-harm. Case study Vignettes may generate ideas for further research Pannell et al. (2003): Empirical study with some reporting omissions but provides ideas on how external factors (attitude of prison officers) may influence self-harm: Uses PCA & ANOVA Biddle et al. (2010): Qualitative study exploring the reasons why people choose hanging as a method of suicide. Interviews with thematic analysis and some descriptive data Student Led

20 Developing Research Ideas (Introduction) 20 Title: E.g. “A Cognitive–Behavioral Motivational Intervention in a Group Versus Individual Format for Substance Use Disorders” Key Words: E.g. group therapy, motivational interviewing, cognitive– behavioral therapy, substance abuse Introduction (Max. 250 words): A brief overview of the subject area outlining research from the relevant folder and incorporating the key words. Hypothesis: If Quantitative e.g. That the Group Therapy participants will report significantly lower levels of substance use than the Individual Therapy participants Student Led

21 Developing Research Ideas (Method) 21 Participants: N-size; characteristics of sample; location of treatment E.g. “One-hundred Participants with a primary drug problem (PDP) voluntarily entered an outpatient treatment program at the Guided Self-Change Unit of the Addiction Research Foundation (ARF) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.” Student Led

22 Developing Research Ideas (Design) 22 “E.g. Figure 1 shows the client flow into the study. The 100 eligible participants were blocked on gender and primary substance problem then randomly assigned to either group treatment (Group Treatment; n = 50) or individual treatment (Iindividual Treatment; n =50).“ Figure 1. Client flow into the study. Eligible and randomly Assigned (n=100) Group Therapy (n=50)Ind. Therapy (n=50) Completed Session 4 (n=46)Completed Session 4 (n=44) Completed 12 month follow up (n=40) Student Led

23 Developing Research Ideas (Materials) 23 Outcome Measures: “E.g. DUHQ. The Drug Use History Questionnaire (DUHQ) gathers lifetime and recent drug use data (e.g., years used, route of administration, frequency of use; L. C. Sobell, Kwan, &Sobell, 1995).” “During treatment Self-Monitoring logs were used to collect self-reports of drug use (i.e., use or no use).” Student Led

24 Developing Research Ideas (Procedure) 24 “Participants randomized to Individual Treatment received the treatment delivered by one therapist and those in Group Treatment received the same treatment delivered in a group format with two therapists. Both conditions consisted of an assessment and four sessions. Individual treatment sessions were 60 min, while group sessions were 90 to120 min. The groups ranged from four to eight members and were closed (i.e., no new members after Session 1).” Please note: In research papers you will find more detail than this but we are at the start of the course.
