Submit an annotated bibliography of 24 peer-reviewed, evidence-based articles (6 per course specialty area selected). An annotated bibliography is an APA formatted list of all the published sources used for an assignment with the word “References” centered at the top of the page. All refrences must be 10 years old or newer nothing older then ten years will be counted. The term “Annotated” in the assignment title differentiates this from a regular References list and requires that each article used include directly below it a brief paragraph 4 to 5 sentences in length describing what the each article’s authors investigated and how and what their finding were. These paragraphs must be written in the student’s own words. Quoting is not permitted for this assignment. Peer-reviewed and evidence-based means that all of the articles are published in academic journals and each is about one single experiment conducted by the article author only, and not author writing about a topic, essay style and/or including citations of multiple other authors’ articles or summaries of multiple study findings in the same article.
Additionally in another document you need to do a – PLAN OF ACTION that provides :
-Progress from last to this week
-Goals to accomplish with Capstone Project for the upcoming week (e.g., write 10 pages)
-Any anticipated problems with accomplishing these goals, and what you can do to ensure that progress is not impeded
(I HAVE ATTACHED THE PLAN OF ACTION OUTLINE FROM LAST WEEK AND THE TOPIC PROPOSAL)

PTSD RESEARCH OUTLINE 7 PTSD Research Outline PTSD Research Outline Introduction The topic of Post Trauma Stress Disorder (PTSD) is important and appropriate for research because it clarifies the means through which people can prepare to avoid becoming stress victims after attaining a psychological shock. The paper based on this topic will be guided by the thesis statement that, “not all individuals attain post trauma disorder after a severe injury, since the disorder has many other factors that contribute towards its attainment.” Terms that are important to explain in the review among others include trauma, stress, shock and social psychology. The explanations and provision of the review will be based upon four major areas. These include: Social Psychology Contemporary issues in psychology Crisis and emergency intervention Psychopathology Each of the areas relates significantly to the theme of the paper as follows. Social Psychology will help in studying an individual’s relationship with others, and means through which the individuals can reduce stress. Contemporary issues in psychology explain about the many issues of psychology that arise regularly Crisis and emergency intervention explain the means through which emergency can be managed. Psychopathology help in understanding the behaviors of individuals. Literature Review Many literal sources exist which provide information concerning PTSDs. The majority of these sources are research studies that have been carried out by other scholars. Examples include: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) study article, authored by Michele Spoont. Psychological treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), authored by Jonathan Bisson and Martin Andrew. Pharmacotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), authored by Dan J Stein, Jonathan C Ipser, Soraya Seedat, Carli Sager and Taryn Amos. Each of these studies have both similarities and differences. Different research studies are focused and address different research areas within the study. The difference in research purpose and scope causes the difference in the research study findings (Stein, Ipser, Seedat, Sager, & Amos, 2006). Facts concerning a topic cannot change, and thus all facts that the researchers identify about the PTSD condition consists of the similarities of the study. Conclusion; All literal sources explain that individuals in different situations attain the PTSD disorder while others do not. The aspect of people attaining the disorder is not only caused by the factors of people attaining a physical or psychological shock, although in many occasions this aspect is the trigger of the disorder occurrence. Discussion The first main understanding from the literature of others is the fact that PTSD disorder is never attained by an individual without any form of trauma occurring in the life of that individual. People’s capability to resist trauma is the determiner of whether an individual will attain the PTSD disorder after attaining a physical or psychological shock or whether they will not. The determiner factors include both internal capabilities of an individual or life experiences that the individual has passed through. The literature review of the many literal sources provided a significant understanding of the disorder and how it is obtained. I also attained the understanding of the many ways through which I can help individuals suffering from the disorder recover from the shock and stress brought by the disorder Conclusion Explanation of the significant difference between individuals suffering from the disorder and those who manage to resists it. Pointing out the many ways through which people can manage to resist and recover from the disorder after thy have attained it. Reflecting on the thesis and explaining how the paper has managed to provide an explanation on its establishment. References Andrew, M. & Bisson, J. (2013).

TOPIC PROPOSAL ACTION PLAN 4 Topic Proposal Action Plan Name University Topic Proposal Action Plan Stress problems are among the most prominent and major problems that people go through. Unlike the general worries that people we deal with commonly within a day, stress refers to a condition where people become extremely sad for an extended period of time. The types of stress problems that people attain are classified according to the means through which the individuals attain the stress. A good example of a certain type of stress disorder that people experience is the post trauma stress disorder, (PTSD) (Krippner, Pitchford, & Davies 2012). PSTD is a type of disorder that people attain after they have been involved in severe injuries or other forms of psychological shock. Some however attain the shock while other people manage to exist without attaining this disorder even after they involve in similar injuries or those psychological shocks. A study of this disorder is therefore appropriate, since it will help to clarify the individuals who are likely to attain post trauma disorder and those that are not likely to attain the disorder. This work will be guided by the theme that, not all individuals attain post trauma disorder after a sever injury, since it has many other factors that contribute towards its attainment (Goulston 2013). From my program, I will utilize four main courses as my subject matter. The first main course is Social Psychology. This refers to the study of behavior regarding individual’s socialization with others. This will help in studying an individual’s relationship with others, and means through which he or she can reduce stress. The second course is contemporary issues in psychology. This course explains about the many psychology issues that arise regularly. The other course is crisis and emergency intervention. This course will help in explaining the means through which emergency can be managed and how individuals can avoid PSTD. The last lesson is psychopathology. This course will help me to understand behavior of individuals completely and the reasons or motives behind that behavior (Stein, Friedman, & Blanco, 2011). References Goulston, M. (2013).
