Question 4821 Gender and Health
Choose a person to interview from a different cultural background and gender. Use the Health Behaviors Questionnaire located in the Required Resources to interview your chosen person and yourself. Write up the responses from both interviews. Analyze the responses: What kind of similarities and differences
did you find between your definition of “being healthy” and your partner’s definition? What kind of similarities and differences did you find between your responses and your partner’s responses in the attitudes and behaviors concerning gender? What, if any, are the cultural values reflected in your
responses and your partner’s responses? Analyze any values you discover. How would you evaluate current psychological research as it relates to understanding culture, gender, and health attitudes? How can the knowledge of cultural differences inform social policy related to health care? Interview someone
who has a different cultural background from your own and is of a different gender. Then, self-interview and compare your responses with the person you interviewed. Finally, using both sets of responses, write 3–5 pages in which you examine cross-cultural and cross-gender similarities and differences in
health-related behaviors. According to Huff (1999), conceptions about health and gender held by various ethnic and immigrant groups within the United States may differ from and even contradict the health concepts of the mainstream society. This assessment will give you the opportunity to examine the concept of “being healthy” across cultures and genders, as well as look at how cultural differences inform social policy related to heath care.

Question 4826 Examine Quasi-Experimental Research Methods
Based on this week’s resources and additional research, create two Word Clouds. The first should be
based on quasi-experimental methods, and the second one should be based on experimental research
methods. Reflect on your readings and additional research conducted this week. What key terms or
themes surround each of these research methods? This reflection exercise will assist in creating your Word Clouds. Next, prepare a critical analysis of the differences between a quasi-experimental and an
experimental research method. For your selected research topic of interest, determine the types of
variables or measures might you want to examine that you don’t have any control over (e.g., age,
gender, IQ, or other factors that could impact the outcome dependent measures). With these variables
in mind, provide an example of a quasi-experimental research study where you intentionally look at
these variables as your ‘quasi’ independent variable; explain why your study would be considered
‘quasi’. How might you be able to revise this to a true experiment – even just hypothetically speaking?
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified
resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included. Length: 4-

Question 4845 Prejudice, Stereotypes and Gender
Unit 3 Project: Design and Justify an Intervention to Reduce Prejudice (2000 words) This Project accounts for 25% of your overall grade in this module. It should be completed by the end of the unit.
The suggested word count for this assignment is 2000 words (+/- 10%). To prepare for this Project: Read the literature both concerning how we can understand prejudice and stereotypes and the types of interventions that have been used in attempts to reduce prejudice. Reflect on the possibilities and the limitations of the interventions that were examined in this unit – which ideas covered in this unit have not been used to inform interventions if they were used what sorts of interventions might they support?
To complete your Project: This assignment requires that you write a 2000-word proposal for an intervention that could be used to reduce prejudice within a set of your choice. It is important that you reflect on the literature concerning stereotypes, prejudice, and communication to design and justify your proposed intervention. There are many forms that this intervention might take (e.g. group
awareness-raising sessions, contact between hostile or antithetical groups and/or individual interventions with key people) and many targets at whom the intervention could be aimed (e.g. school children, health care professionals or people within the education sector). The important point is to develop an intervention that you clearly justify through reference to the literature addressed in this module. Your proposed intervention should also include reflections on what problematic issues could arise (again drawing on relevant literature) and steps that might be necessary in order to maximize its potential positive impact. Advice on word count: Submissions that range from 10% below to 10% above
the recommended word count are acceptable. Students should recognize that assignment submission that falls outside these parameters may be marked down since the quality of the assignment is likely to suffer accordingly (following the academic policies of the University of Roehampton).
Assessment and Grading
This project accounts for 25% of your grade for this module. Review the Project Rubric for information on how your assignment will be graded.

Question 4847 Issues Analysis Paper
SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY This is a continuation of week 4 where you selected a topic of interest and chose 5 APA references………….. Your paper should be 5 pages in length, plus a Title Page and Reference Page………Please do not submit a 7+ page paper….. In the Issue Analysis Paper, you have select a topic, issue or subject relating to sports psychology and now you are asked to analyze the topic in the first half of the paper. First, identify an important Issue related to sport psychology and describes that issue in detail during the first half of the paper. Then, in the paper’s second half, analyze the issue and suggests solutions. Analysis requires breaking a subject, issue, or event into its constituent elements so that the assumptions or components are made clear and the relationships between them are made explicit. Thus, through the analysis paper, the student demonstrates comprehension of the material beinganalyzed. In that Sport Psychology is interdisciplinary, you can borrow topics and subjects from other
areas in which you have an interest, but we must be sure the topic relates to sports psychology. Issues can include mental or physical conditions, performance, goal- setting and imagery, aggression and
violence, group processes, competition, etc. The paper is not a personal opinion or reflection style paper. As such, it should NOT include personal story or observation sharing, but must analyze the issue;
the personal, you or I, must be left out of your thinking and writing. You should write as though your readers are intelligent but not fully informed about the topic. Your paper must be developed using research material from at least five sources. You may not use your textbook as a source. You may also
use the Internet for some of your material as long as you access scholarly resources and not popular media such as Sports Illustrated, Psychology Today, opinion .com sites or blogs, About.com sites or others that do summarizing for readers, abstracts without reading the full article, etc. NO WIKIPEDIA
articles may be used for these papers or any other writing assignment in this course. All sources must be listed on “References” pages (not “Works Cited or “Bibliography” – those aren’t APA format terms, and without the quotation marks) attached to the end of the papers. You must also cite the material within
the body of your paper, using the American Psychological Association (APA) format (this is the citation format used within the narrative of your textbook). Your paper should contain a cover page with your name and the title. Papers are to be typed and double-spaced using a font size of 10 to 12, no larger,
throughout, including the cover page. The pages should be full and margins should be no larger than 1″ on all sides. The cover page and “References” page are in addition to the five-page length requirement.
