30 Jan Any topic (writer’s choice)
Select a topic you would be interested in researching. (Ex: bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, etc).
In your initial post, provide some background information that shows why this is an important topic to be explored further. Apply the scientific method by identifying one or more appropriate research areas of psychology that your topic might align to (for example, a study about treatment for bipolar disorder would align with clinical psychology, or a study of relationships in which one party is bipolar could come under social psychology). Does it fit into more than one? If so, which do you feel is the closest fit, and why?
