Adolescent psychology assessment 4.
For this assessment, create a one-page (front and back) fact sheet targeted at a public audience (parents, community members, clients, constituents, and so forth). This information sheet should concisely describe the issue at hand, what current research indicates about the issue, and what action items are recommended as a result. You should provide citations within the fact sheet, so that every statement made is clearly documented. Graphics that support rather than distract from the information are encouraged but should not dominate the fact sheet.
If needed, use Fact Sheets and Action Alerts, available in the Suggested Resources, for assistance in developing the format consistent with expectations for a fact sheet.
Identify key theories and research relevant for the intended audience.
Recommend best practices that are relevant for the intended audience.
Use grammar, punctuation, and mechanics expected of graduate-level composition and expression.
Use APA format and style, with only minor errors that do not detract from meaning.
Written communication: Use the accepted form and style of the psychological professions, employing grammar, punctuation, and mechanics expected of graduate-level composition and expression.
APA style and formatting: Format citations according to current APA style and formatting guidelines.
Length of fact sheet: Two pages (intended as the front and back of a single, 8.5 x 11 inch handout)
