questions. 16 PF Results Upon reviewing the Interpretive Report of the 16PF generated from my responses, I determined areas for growth and areas of strength within my personality. Areas for Growth I have always considered myself a practical thinker, but my results from taking the 16PF illustrate a different picture. On the primary scale that measures abstractness, I was scored at a 7, certainly leaning toward abstract thinking. My Interpretive Report included a sentence that I would not have

Even though there was a decline in the percentage of adolescents who abused alcohol and drugs between the year 2002 and 2006, the national survey report (2003) noted the youth ages 12 to 17 years going through drug treatment remained somehow stable.

symmetrical. Five blots appear in black and white (Plates 1, 4, 5, 6, and 7); two appear in black, white, and red (Plates 2 and 3); and three are composed of pastel colors. The blots are presented to the respondent one at a time with the instruction to report: 'What might this be?' If only one response is provided to the first blot, the examiner may encourage the person to see whether it looks like anything else. Consequently, there is often more than one response to each blot. After the person provides
Running head: Florida A&M University Research Strategy Florida A & M University Research Strategy Report By Joseph Sanders Akon Research, Inc. 17 October 2011 Abstract The purpose of this report is to go over the different areas of research and how it is done. I have been tasked by one of my clients at Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, Florida to conduct some necessary research on a project that we had been discussing earlier. To further expound on what I will be
paper will focus on two of these methods, Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis and Discursive Psychology, describing their histories, epistemological positions, goals and methodology. The analytical methods of each discipline will then be critically evaluated, using 2 published research papers by Wilde & Murray (2009) and Guise, McKinlay, & Widdicombe (2010) with a commentary on the limitations of each of the research methods in turn. Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) has a relatively

care intervention can be designed. Methodology and Research Design This naturalistic, exploratory study will use interpretive phenomenological methods (Benner, 1994). Interpretive approaches address research that aims to understand rather than explain human phenomenon, occurs in a natural uncontrolled setting, and utilizes the knowledge embedded in experience (Mackey, 2005). Interpretive phenomenology will provide a rich and thick description of the rural family healthcare transition experience.

When revising the WAIS-IV, a number of objectives were noted within the technical and interpretive manual which includes modernizing theoretical infrastructure, heightening developmental usefulness, increasing user-friendliness, enhancing clinical utility, and improving psychometric features (Gabel, 2003).
