The aim is to draw from the collectiveresearch of the group to outline and evaluate a solution to the development of theidentified areas of applied psychology based on relevant theory, research, and otherliterary evidence. However, if you wish to deviate from your group’s solution andbase your solution on your own research or ideas from other group slides this is alsoacceptable.You should structure your solution to the problem appropriately using introductory,main body (i.e., start with theory, then research, evaluation, and intervention ideas)and concluding sections. The marking criteria, including all the information that isrequired in the solution, is included below and at the end of this guide.Your solution should include:1.A title that appropriately reflects the subsequent solution summary. Keep the titleconcise and precise and include your word count on your title sheet.2.Clear background information on the area of interest including detail on the keyunderlying theory(ies), definitions of concepts, and both contextual and widerimplications of your chosen area of interest and solution.3.An Identified theory, area of research or intervention (i.e. consultancy) that couldbe furthered in an identified applied area of psychology. You can also base ideason evidence from other areas of applied psychology.4.Inclusion of empirical theory and research support that supports your solutionideas.5.Appropriate evaluation of the strengths and limitations of the respective theory,research, or applied intervention techniques.6.Presentation of a valid and appropriate solution to the area for developmentwhich is clearly linked to the theory, research, and its evaluation.7.Evaluation of the strengths and potential limitations of the applied solution.8.A concluding section that adequately reflects the preceding content of thesolution.9.References to theory, research, and interventions should be cited throughout. Inaddition, you need to provide a full reference section either at the end of eachsummary or as a final section to the overall report. All references should beformatted according to CU Harvard style.
