Tutor referral will apply to this assessment component. Tutor – referred work must be resubmitted on the date advised in your feedback.

The essay is assessed on the following three areas:

Relevance- the discussion must be relevant to the question set based on the key topics covered in lessons. Description should be avoided, instead critically evaluating the material content. The answer should relate back to the question and the quote.

Evidence – independent research should be undertaken to support the work. A wide variety of academic materials is recommended including textbooks, journal articles and reliable websites all of which should be accurately referenced. Recommended reading lists are available in the handbook but original, relevant research will be recognised.

Structure and Presentation- An appropriate essay format should be used. References must use the APA 6th referencing system. Consideration will also be given to how clearly the discussion is structured. Please make an appointment with the Academic Skills Tutors for any additional help needed with essay writing and referencing.

http://www.hud.ac.uk/library/finding-info/informationskills/evaluation/referencing/

It is essential that you reference all material that you use within your essay whether it is a direct quote or you have used the source to support your discussion. Referencing correctly will avoid plagiarism which has serious penalties and it also demonstrates that you have read widely to support your work. This essay should be based on researched academic material which requires referencing.

Order Description
E?????????????????????xample Assessments You may use the assessment examples, linked in the Assessment Example section of the Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like. Preparation Suppose you work as a counselor in a crisis center. The agency for which you work tries to offer informational sessions presented by staff members on a regular basis. You have been asked to present at the next session, and your topic is the causes of depression. You must decide if you believe the causes of depression stem from biological factors or from cognitive-behavioral factors, present your perspective (either biological or cognitive-behavioral), your position, and provide evidence-based arguments to support your position. To prepare for this, research the causes of depression that have been presented by experts. Links to several websites dedicated to the study of depression have been provided in the Suggested Resources for this assessment, along with a list of journal articles. Based on this research, decide which perspective you believe makes the most compelling argument. In the Capella library, locate at least four peer-reviewed articles that support your position. You may use two of the articles from the resource list provided, but at least two additional resources must come from your own research. In the real world, this type of presentation would likely use PowerPoint or a similar type of technology; however, for t?????????????????????his assessment, format your presentation following APA guidelines. This gives you more practice and experience with the professional writing style of the field of psychology. To help you organize your work, you may consider using the Causes of Depression Analysis Worksheet provided in the resources. Do not submit the worksheet as your assessment or with your assessment; this is provided solely to assist you in organizing and writing your assessment. Requirements Prepare a 3–5 page presentation on the causes of depression in which you first identify the perspective you have chosen, and then: Analyze the research that caused you to choose the perspective you did. Explain the main arguments presented in the research. Describe the evidence used in the research to support the main arguments. In other words, what evidence did the researchers use to support their perspective? Identify any assumptions made by the researchers. Describe the conclusions or findings of the research. Explain how the research findings might influence the way psychology professionals view depression. Be sure you consider both accepting and rejecting the findings. Support your position with credible, scholarly information. Additional Requirements Include a title page and reference page. Number of pages: 3–5, not including the title page and reference page. At least four current scholarly or professional resources. APA format. Times New Roman font, 12 pt. Double-sp?????????????????????aced.
