Literature Review Draft


In addition to the other helpful links provided in Resources, we recommend you use an organizing tool from the Capella University Library Services and Tools page, such as the Scholarly Research Log, to help you track the theories, methods, and findings of the articles you have read.

Note: Be sure to post your draft of the literature review in the Unit 4 discussion and incorporate feedback from your instructor and peers before submitting this assignment.

For this assignment, submit the current draft of your literature review for instructor feedback and grading. Using your literature search question (LSQ), the annotated bibliography, and the abstracted outline to support your review, identify themes that emerge from your analysis of what we know so far about your topic. Use these themes to describe how your research builds on prior knowledge.

For instance, if your LSQ is What does the literature in psychology tell us about the utility of treating mild depression in adults with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous labyrinth walking and cognitive behavioral therapy? you might discuss literature that covers the themes of exercise and depression, cognitive behavioral therapy and depression, walking meditation and depression, mindfulness and depression, and so on. Do not organize the paper by referencing each article sequentially; your task is to synthesize concepts pertinent to the LSQ from the articles selected for this review.

Plan to identify articles and research that:

o Describe chosen area of research and provide rationale for choice.

o Describe significance of chosen topic: 

§ Explain and justify the implications of the new knowledge for stakeholders, including community members and those who serve the population.

o Summarize sources applicable to the history of chosen topic: 

Discuss historical context and dominant themes in the evolution of the topic; connect common themes and present counter-opinions.

o Summarize sources applicable to the theoretical background of the chosen topic: 

 Provide information about theoretical underpinnings such as empirical/behavioral or constructivist and humanistic orientations of the literature reviewed.

 Consider theory in light of seminal works by theorists such as Urie Bronfenbrenner, Sigmund Freud, B.F. Skinner, Carol Gilligan, Jean Piaget, Erving Goffman, and Clark Moustakas.

o Summarize sources applicable to best practices for engaging in research: 

 Describe data collection strategies, research procedures, and approaches for conducting and reporting research.

o Summarize sources that add significance and relevance to the knowledge base of psychology: 

 Indicate how the chosen sources help investigators identify topics that are well understood and other topics that represent gaps in the knowledge base and the need for further study.

 Create a scenario that illustrates the need for new research.

o Articulate guidelines of the profession applicable to ethical conduct in research practice: 

 Demonstrate ethical conduct associated with the protection of research subject vulnerabilities such as the need for data privacy.

o Identify practices and research guidelines that address respect for individual differences and diversity: 

 Address individual variation and diversity within and across groups. For example, when writing about marriage and family therapy, acknowledge research choices that exclude or include subgroups such as gay and lesbian families or families of particular racial, ethnic, or cultural compositions.

o Adhere to APA style and formatting guidelines, including concise and well-organized writing: 

 Organization of paper enhances the message and supporting points; writing reflects the quality and expertise expected for academic work.

 Organizes and summarizes sources thematically.

Your task is to present current considerations important to investigators and to indicate ramifications for stakeholders who rely on the current knowledge base. 

Use illustrative examples to explain and highlight key concepts. Good reviewers share evidence-based assessments of the current state of knowledge with their audiences.

This assignment is one component of the integrated project. It is expected that you will refine this literature review before submitting the final project.


Format your assignment as follows:

o Table of contents.

o Title page.

o Chapter headings (should start on new page).

o Subheadings.

Additional Requirements

o Font: New Times Roman, 12 point, double spaced.

o APA: Use APA format and style throughout, including citations.




Participated in the discussion by   replying to a minimum of 2 classmates, asking a question, providing a   statement of clarification, providing a point of view with rationale,   challenging a point of discussion, or making a relationship between one or   more points of the discussion.  Each reply post is unique and original   in nature and meets the required minimum word count of 150 words

Attachment begins at an early age. This week’s lesson describes attachment as a “strong tie of affection formed between the child and the parent or main caregiver” (CHFD308, APUS). An example of that is when infants become attached to their mother by forming a special bond. When the mother feeds and holds the infant, the infant feels safe and cared for. When the infant gets hungry he/she will long for the special person that has formed a safe and loving bond with them.  

It’s important for the parents and caregivers to form a trusted relationship with the infant. Parenting styles are related to many psychological outcomes for children (CHFD308, APUS). When the parent or caregiver responds to the infant with “sensitive care”, this “reduces uncertainty” for the child and helps build an attachment between the two (CHFD308, APUS). There is trust in the infant when they learn that caregivers “will respond” to his/her actions and be “comforted” (CHFD308, APUS). Children need to have healthy relationship’s and attachment with their daily caregivers for their “well-being throughout life” (CHFD308, APUS). The child’s psychological development is influenced by “biological traits and experiences in the environment” (CHFD308, APUS). Parents and caregivers are the main people that will spend the majority of their time with a child. Children that experience safe and loving attachments to others at an early age will learn to apply those experiences later in life. These positive interactions will guide them to achieve a healthy social and emotional life.

           If attachment does not securely develop, the child will not trust certain people and may not feel loved or safe. Children “may withdraw and avoid social or emotional contact with others” (CHFD308, APUS). If the child does not overcome these psychosocial conflicts, the experiences can have long lasting effects on the child’s life. An example is growing up with “self doubt” as an adult (CHFD308, APUS). Obtaining “secure attachment” is important and gained through “early experiences and care” (CHFD308, APUS).

Hello Everyone,

Attachment in children is a that bond they build so string with a parent, grandparent, caregiver, etc. That bond is a close one for the little child as they use that as their comfort. There a few different levels of attachment that a child could show. They have the secure attachment which is a little lesser of an attachment. The child will walk around and explore the room while the person they are attached to is present but once they leave they show signs of sadness. The next is avoidance attachment. This attachment is where they are solely attached to that one persona and they will cry and throw fits when that person is gone. There are 2 other ones but these 2 seem to be the most prominent. 

Forming healthy attachments is good for the child because they are able to have those relationships with them forever as long as they carry them. It is also good for them because they will have that sense of love and people being there for them. 

If they do not form attachments properly some of things that I had mentioned could happen. They could grow up developing improper relationships as well as having avoidance and not wanting to be around people etc. It is very important that we develop good and healthy relationships. You do not want them to attached because that can cause problems but you also do not want them distant. It is a fine line to walk and is important to maintain. 

My son and I have developed a great bond. He is only 6 months but we have a really tight bond. He is not so much as attached to me as he can go without seeing my wife or I. However he lights up when we walk in and gets happy seeing us.

What about using appraisals for training indicators? That training might be remedial, or it could be for expanding the position, or moving the employee to a higher level.

If the performance evaluation points to deficits that I certainly think the sooner these evaluations are done, and the more frequent, the better for both the employee and the employer. If you were bringing on a new hire how often might you do a performance appraisal?
