Area of Focus needs to have at least 1 empirical reference that supports your observations, is discussed critically, and relates to that particular Area of Focus.
In order to “exceed expectations” the paper needs to be 12+ pages of text (this does not include the title page and abstract) with at least 12+ references that support the Areas of Focus listed

below. Each Area of Focus needs to have at least 2 empirical references that support your observations, are discussed critically, and relate to that particular Area of Focus.
References need to be from empirical research journals. Textbooks, websites books and magazines are not to be used.
Format of Paper: Paper needs to be organized using the Areas of Focus as section headings so the information can be easily identified.
Areas of Focus:
1.    What major principles/concepts have you learned from the Positive Psychology course and according to the research why do you think these principles are important?
2.    What changes do you notice in your emotional states, processes and experiences and according to the research why are these changes important?
3.    What changes do you notice in your cognitive states and processes and according to the research why are these changes important?
4.    Describe examples of how you are currently applying the information and what changes have you observed?
5.    Describe your goals and plans for applying the information from the course in the future. (Include in your discussion how these goals and plans will build strengths in a multicultural

environment.
6.    How will you apply this information to prosocial behavior in your current workplace or future career to create a positive environment? What research supports these behaviors to be

important?
7.    Within the concepts and terminology of Positive Psychology list and describe your challenges and obstacles.
8.    Within the framework of Positive Psychology what are your unanswered questions or areas where you question the validity of the information?
A good starting point is to examine the area(s) in your Positive Psychology textbook for references and researchers associated with the concepts that you are particularly interested in. The

references in the back of the book are examples of APA citation. Use this format for the references you use in your paper.
The paper needs to be written in the APA style, e.g., title page, abstract, 1 inch margins, running heads, DS, proper reference format, etc. See the following websites for more
