Four Scholarly

For this course paper, I will need to include a minimum of FOUR scholarly sources to support my ideas. One source may be from your textbook Feldman, R. (2015). Chapter 7: Thinking, Language, and Intelligence. Essentials of understanding psychology (11th ed.) (pp. 236-254, 264-283). New York, NY: McGraw Hill. and the other three should be scholarly journal articles.

It is similar to an annotated bibliography. Refer to the following resources for more information.
For this assignment,
List your sources in APA style. For more information on APA style, refer to this website:

Include a permalink to any scholarly articles you use. You will lose one point for each scholarly article that does not include a permalink. So, if you forget to include permalinks for four sources, you will loose 4 points off your assignment grade.
Summarize the main findings described in the sources.
Explain how each source relates to your paper topic.

For your paper, you will include FOUR scholarly references. For each resource, you will provide an APA style citation, brief summary of the findings presented in the resource, and a discussion of the relationship between the article content and your topic.

Here\’s a example of what is needed

Brief summary:
This review article explores the relationship between various lifestyle factors and depression. Some of these lifestyle factors include dietary, exercise, and other stress-reduction practices such as meditation. For example, there is ample evidence that exercise significantly reduces depressive symptoms. In addition, mindfulness meditation has been shown to affect brain structure and increase serotonin levels. Furthermore, there is a strong relationship between sleep and depression levels, with one study showing that individuals with insomnia were twice as likely to become depressed as non-insomniacs. Many of these lifestyle therapies provide a safe and inexpensive alternative to medications. This paper is important because it highlights potential steps individuals can take to prevent and manage depression.

Relationship to topic (how it relates to my topic and what I will write about):
In my paper, I will write about depression, including its symptoms and causes. This article directly relates to my paper topic because it discusses treatments for depression. I will discuss other traditional therapies including various medications, talk therapies, and electric shock therapy. Next I will discuss evidence from this article that shows how lifestyle changes may be incorporated into any prevention or treatment plan for depression.

Example 2.

Brief Summary:
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of exercise on depression levels in adolescents. Adolescents were randomly assigned to either the experimental group (12 sessions of exercise in addition to any treatment they were already receiving) or the control group (no exercise, but continue with existing treatment). Depression scores from the Childrens Depression Inventory (CDI-2) were obtained pre-treatment and post-treatment. Results showed a significant decrease in CDI-2 score 6 months post-treatment in the exercise group, but there was no change in CDI-2 score immediately after treatment in the exercise-group. These results suggest that exercise may lessen depressive symptoms, although there may be a delay in symptom reduction.

Relationship to topic (how it relates to my topic and what I will write about):
In my paper, I will write about depression, including its symptoms and causes. I will then discuss traditional therapies for depression including various medications, talk therapies, and electric shock therapy. I will then discuss the results of this research study which shows that exercise can be an effective treatment tool for managing depression.
