You discuss the importance of empirical evidence. Scientific research is a critical tool for successfully navigating our complex world. Without it, we would be forced to rely solely on intuition. It is through systematic scientific research that we divest ourselves of our preconceived notions and superstitions and gain an objective understanding of ourselves and our world. Scientific knowledge is empirical: It is grounded in objective, tangible evidence that can be observed time and time again, regardless of who is observing.However, it is not clear how the evolutionary perspective is contemporary. Please provide an example of a more contemporary discipline in psychology. I look forward to your follow-up answer.

In the early 1800s, anatomist Franz Josef Gall proposed that anatomical differences in the form of the head were related to the development of the brain. He founded the science of phrenology (or cranioscopy), based on the idea that the morphology of the skull correlated with characteristics related to behavior, ability, intelligence, and emotional functioning (Kaitaro, 2001). Although Gall and his followers tended not to scrutinize phrenology scientifically, their theories went uncontested for approximately 10 years until proven wrong. Some years later, Paul Broca, another physician, also explored the functions of the brain in his theory that lesions in the cortex of the frontal lobe affect speech. Unlike Gall, however, Broca insisted on testing this hypothesis for support and confirmation (Benjamin, 2013). Why might some psychological theorists have failed to adequately test their hypotheses? In other words, what challenges might they have faced related to empirical research? In addition, what are the consequences of failing to conduct adequate research?For this Discussion, review the Learning Resources. Consider the evolution of psychological disciplines grounded in theory as well as research. Select a contemporary example of a psychology discipline that appeared to have strong theoretical support but was found later lacking in empirical evidence due to lack of research or inadequate research.By Day 3Post by Day 3 a description of your selected example of a psychological discipline. Explain challenges the theorist might have faced related to conducting empirical research on psychological disciplines. Then explain the consequences to the public of implementing this discipline without conducting adequate research.

This week, you are bringing all your learning together through the application a

This week, you are bringing all your learning together through the application and evaluation of your learning of qualitative methods. Specifically, the second Signature Assignment brings forward two main parts: In Part 1, you will examine two research questions and outline what method you would use and why, providing a clear rationale of the decisions made, while also addressing key design components. The second part affords the opportunity for in-depth reflection on the work over this section of the course. You are invited to provide thoughtful and careful consideration of the views and experiences of the topics and tasks from this section. PLEASE CITE Research Methods for the Behavioral Sciences Privitera, 2017 GENEROUSLY THROUGHOUT BOTH PARTS. Pt: 1Review the scenarios and related research questions below. Create some context for the identified scenario and research question. Then, select one qualitative research method that could address the research questions (one for each) based on the section topics and readings. For each method, discuss what the method is, how it would be designed to support the research question and the rationale for choosing the selected method. Explain the following, and then justify your response:Justify the use of the qualitative method you selected.
Identify the potential population and sample.
Explain the collection and analysis strategies you would use.
Examine the relationship of trustworthiness to your selected design.
Analyze any ethical issues, including the process of reflexivity and how you would account for it.
You must clearly describe the key points of each area, supporting each step with citations to your course text as well as peer-reviewed studies that directly align with the key areas discussed. Scenario: Research has demonstrated that bank teller turnover continues to be high throughout the financial industry. In particular, studies reveal that if the turnover issue is not addressed, poor customer service and increase in training costs will continue to be a concern. After reviewing the literature, it is clear that a qualitative exploration may help reveal a meaningful understanding of the turnover issue and how it might be improved. The following research question was developed in support of this problem: Research Question 1: How do bank managers perceive reducing high turnover in their banking institutions? Scenario: Research has demonstrated that bank teller turnover continues to be high throughout the financial industry. In particular, studies reveal that more needs to be understood about its existence in particular to how the industry may fully appreciate the issue and then consider how it might be approached. After reviewing the literature, it is clear that a qualitative exploration may help reveal a meaningful understanding of the turnover issue. The following research question was developed in support of this problem: Research Question 2: What are bank managers’ lived experiences of high turnover in their banking institutions? Pt: 2Reflect on your experiences. First person perspective is acceptable. In the reflection, begin by considering your research learning experiences for the past six weeks of this course, and then address the following: Describe your experiences of engaging the activities and material for Weeks 7-12.What was new information to you?
What was familiar?
What did you enjoy the most and why (if at all)?
What did you enjoy the least and why (if at all)?
What preconceived notions did you have about qualitative methods and how have your experiences over these weeks supported or conflicted with them?
As you continue exploring research on your topic of interest and a potential research problem and research questions, and if the research was revealing that a qualitative study was more appropriate, how comfortable are you with implementing a qualitative research study (again, consider how the problem and research questions guide this direction)?
Support your assignment (for Part 1) with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.Part 1 Length: 8-10 pagesPart 2 Length: 3-5 pagesTotal Length: 11-15 pages, not including title and reference pagesYour assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
Requirements: Pt 1: 8-10 pages, Pt 2: 3-5 pages
