Data Collection Essay
Data Collection Essay
- Review this week’s Learning Resources.
- Focus on the case study of “Andrea C.” on pages 125-127 of Abnormal Psychology.
- Think about how a client’s gender, culture (including the culture of physical disabilities), ethnicity, family (or lack thereof), and possible religious background may help you form a more complete case conceptualization.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 an analysis of the cultural factors and related social and familial issues that you consider important in making a culturally sensitive diagnosis of “Andrea C.” (found in Chapter 4, “Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis”), and an explanation of their impact on the assessment and diagnosis.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references from the Learning Resources.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
