Week 6 – Final Assignment Integrative Literature Review Pathbuilder is being used for this assignment. Please be certain to complete the “Survey Acknowledgement Quiz” this week in order to submit the Integrative Literature Review. You will not be allowed to submit your Final Paper until you have completed the quiz this week. The primary goal of this literature review is to integrate concepts from four different content domains within the larger field of psychology. The four content domains should be chosen from previous coursework in this program. In this paper, students will review the findings in the individual empirical articles, organize the research in a meaningful way, evaluate the reliability, validity, and generalizability of the research findings, and present an integrated synthesis of the research that sheds new light on the topics within and across the four domains. The result of a successful integrative literature review may be a significant contribution to a particular body of knowledge and, consequently, to research and practice. Therefore, before writing this literature review, substantive new research must be conducted via the Internet and within the Ashford University Library for each of the four chosen domains. A minimum of six sources must be included for each of the four domains. Although content from literature reviews completed in prior courses within this program may be included, it may not constitute the total research for the individual domains addressed within this assignment. No more than four sources from previous literature reviews completed in this program may be utilized for this integrative review. The headings listed below must be used within the paper to delineate the sections of content. These sections include the following: a clear introduction that provides a general review and organizes the research in a meaningful way; a discussion in which the evidence is presented through analysis, critique, and synthesis; and a conclusion in which the discussion is drawn together in a meaningful way, the claims of the introduction are brought to a logical closure, and new research is proposed. Introduction Provide a conceptual framework for the review. Describe how the review will be organized. The questions below may be used to guide this section. What are the guiding theories within the domains? How are the domains connected? Are there competing points of view across the domains? Why is the integration of these domains important? What is the history of these domains? What are the related theories or findings? Describe how the literature was identified, analyzed, and synthesized. How and why was the literature chosen? What is your claim or thesis statement? Discussion Provide the analysis, critique, and synthesis for the review. Analysis Examine the main ideas and relationships presented in the literature across the four domains. Integrate concepts from the four different content domains within the larger field of psychology. What claim(s) can be made in the introduction? What evidence supports the claim(s) made in the introduction? Critique Evaluate the reliability, validity, and generalizability of the chosen research findings. How well does the literature represent the issues across the four domains? Identify the strengths and the key contributions of the literature. What, if any, deficiencies exist within the literature? Have the authors omitted any key points and/or arguments? What, if any, inaccuracies have been identified in the literature? What evidence runs contrary to the claims proposed in the introduction, and how might these be reconciled with the claims presented? Explain how the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct might influence the reliability and/or generalizability of the chosen findings. Did the ethical issues influence the outcomes of the research? Were ethical considerations different across the domains? Synthesis Integrate existing ideas with new ideas to create new knowledge and new perspectives. Describe the research that has previously been done across these domains, as well as any controversies or alternate opinions that currently exist. Relate the evidence presented to the major conclusions being made. Construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based psychological concepts and theories to posit new relationships and perspectives on the topics within the domains. Conclusion Provide a conclusion and present potential future considerations. State your final conclusion(s). Synthesize the findings described in the discussion into a succinct summary. What questions remain? What are the possible implications of your argument for existing theories and for everyday life? Are there novel theories and/or testable hypothesizes for future research? What do the overarching implications of the studies show? Where should the research go from this point to further the understanding of these domains and the greater study of psychology? Attention Students: The Masters of Arts in Psychology program is utilizing the Pathbrite portfolio tool as a repository for student scholarly work in the form of signature assignments completed within the program. After receiving feedback for this Integrative Literature Review, please implement any changes recommended by the instructor, go to Pathbrite (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and upload the revised Integrative Literature Review to the portfolio. (Use the Pathbrite Quick-Start Guide (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. to create an account if you do not already have one.) The upload of signature assignments will take place after completing each course. Be certain to upload revised signature assignments throughout the program as the portfolio and its contents will be used in other courses and may be used by individual students as a professional resource tool. See the Pathbrite (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. website for information and further instructions on using this portfolio tool. The Integrative Literature Review Must be 20 to 30 double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Must include a separate title page with the following: Title of paper Student’s name Course name and number Instructor’s name Date submitted Must begin with an introductory paragraph that has a succinct thesis statement. Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought. Must end with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis. Must use at least 24 peer-reviewed sources, including a minimum of 20 from the Ashford University Library. Must document all sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Must include a separate reference list that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

Explain why cultural patterns are effective for thinking about people from other cultures and understanding cultural differences. ·

Apples to Apples: Major Elements of Cultural Patterns

People are surrounded by multiple cultures in family units, organizations, communities, and nations. Although complex in nature, cultures share similar characteristics that can be identified and evaluated. You may have heard the saying apples to apples when referring to a process of comparing similar items. The categories of orientation explained in your text give you an “apples to apples” framework that can be used to compare similar characteristics of different cultures.


· Review your Discussion posts from Week 1 about how your beliefs, values, and norms are derived from your culture.

· Review the major elements of cultural patterns in Chapter 4 of your course text:

· Activity orientation

· Social relations orientation

· Self-orientation

· World orientation

· Time orientation

· Use the Cultural Patterns Continuum document to analyze your orientations and those of your national culture for each of the five orientation categories.

· Review the optional Walden Writing Center resource on effective PowerPoint presentations.

Submit a 10- -slide PowerPoint presentation in which you:

· Compare your preferences in each dimension to those of your culture.

· For the places where you marked yourself differently from your culture, explain what you believe accounts for these differences.

· Explain why cultural patterns are effective for thinking about people from other cultures and understanding cultural differences.

· Predict how knowledge of cultural patterns can be applied to interaction with people from a culture you select.
