Cardiovascular disease

The attached file is the paper I turned in. This way you will have all the information that it is asking for from week three.

Assignment 2: Research Paper

In Week 3 you conducted a literature review using the course competencies as a guide in choosing the articles. For this week you will take that information and incorporate it into a final paper. The paper is not just the literature review; it is a culmination of what you have learned over the course. As in Week 3 use the course competencies as a guide to developing your paper.

  1. The major theories of health psychology.
  2. Stress on and health of an individual.
  3. Stress due to the developmental stage.
  4. Models of coping and their varied uses according to context (e.g., home, work, and geography).
  5. Current trends steadily on the rise in the United States (e.g., diabetes, obesity, and eating disorders).
  6. Chronic and life-threatening illnesses (e.g., cardiovascular disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS).
  7. Contributions of typical and alternative treatments.
  8. The link between the mind and the body with regard to protective and vulnerability factors.

Your paper should adhere to the following guidelines:

For the main sections, it should have:

  • A title page
  • An abstract (not more than 250 words)
  • An introduction
  • A literature review
  • Discussion or conclusions
  • References

Introduction: This should be one to two pages in length. The introduction provides a brief overview of what will be covered and the purpose of the research paper.

Literature review: The literature review is taken in part from what you wrote in Week 3. The literature review is not a copy of that material. Rather, it is a synthesis of the material you found into a cohesive review of the literature on your chosen topic.

Discussion and conclusions: The difference between a great research paper and a marginal one is the depth and originality of the discussion and conclusions section. This is where you bring together what you learned from the literature review (as well as through the course) in your concluding remarks regarding your topic. The discussion and conclusions section should be one to two pages in length.

Reference page: Remember to follow the APA format and style.
