SEMESTER Fall 2021
Clinical Psychology (PSY401)
Assignment No. 01
Due Date: 28.12.2021 Marks: 20

Assignment: Following are given two hypothetical research scenarios. You are required to read them carefully and answer the questions given at the end of the scenarios.
1. Ali is going to conduct a study on the role of social support in anxiety management. In this regard, he is going to interview a sample of employed people between the ages of 21-62. No sampling frame is available. Previous researches suggest that gender has also a significant impact on responses, so he will consider that equal proportion of males and females must be included in the population.

2. Mr. Sherazi was student of Psychology and doing internship in a psychiatry ward of a hospital to meet the requirements of his BS psychology study program. In the coming semester he is also supposed to work on his thesis so during his internship he intends to choose a practical topic for his thesis. On the basis of his past experiences through internship he came to know that treatment strategies being used in ward were inconsistent with what Sherazi actually studied in his Clinical Psychology class. After reviewing some literature, he found that Clinical Psychology should be linked to the social/external environment in which the patient lives and survives. So, he decides to work on the role of peers in coping strategies of patients for his thesis.

Question No. 01

Which research design will be most suitable for each study? Justify your selected research design in each scenario as well. (2+2)

Hint: There are many research designs, i.e., descriptive research design, correlational research design, experimental research design. You have to choose one of these designs in your answer.

Question No. 02
You are supposed to formulate one research hypothesis for each study. (2+2)

Hint: Focus on the given topics and extract a proposition explaining the relationship between two variables

Question No. 03
Your last task is to identify the variables (independent, dependent, moderating and extraneous) in both studies independently and provide justification of your identification in one line as well. (6+6)
Hint: Independent variable is the one that identifies forces or conditions that act on something else.
The variable that is the effect or is the result or outcome of another variable is the dependent variable. Moderating variable is one that has a strong contingent effect on the independent variable-dependent variable relationship. Extraneous variable might conceivably affect a given relationship.
