Read the following article and write a review once you are finished. This will be the chapter 7 writing assignment. I realize that this article includes sophisticated material.  Do your best and make connections to ideas that you can explain.

Instructions

1.    Read the entire article. Many journal articles can be quite complex and use complicated wording and statistics. You may need to read the article a few times before you get a full grasp of it. http://bjp.rcpsych.org/content/177/4/343.long

2. Write a  summary of the article. This should be one to three paragraphs, depending on the length of the article. Include the purpose for the article, how research was conducted, the results and other pertinent information from the article.

3. Discuss the meaning or implication of the results of the study that the article is about. This should be one to two paragraphs. This is where you offer your opinion on the article. Discuss any flaws with the article, how you think it could have been better and what you think it all means.

4. Write one paragraph discussing how the author could expand on the results, what the information means in the big picture, what future research should focus on or how future research could move the topic forward. Discuss how knowledge in the area could be expanded.

5. Cite any direct quotes or paraphrases from the article. Use the author's name, the year of publication and the page number (for quotes) in the in-text citation. Refer to the link in the Resources section to do this correctly.

6. Make a references page. The citation should follow the American Psychological Association's style--consult the APA-style manual or the link under Resources for citation information. You will need the title of the article, the journal where the article is published, the volume and issue number, publication date, author's name and page numbers for the article.
