My topic is Grief and Loss

This is instructions.

In this final step, you will write a research paper on the topic used in your Research Paper: Topic Proposal Assignment and Research Paper: Annotated Bibliography Assignment. Guidelines for topics are provided in the Research Paper: Topic Proposal Assignment Instructions document. Do not use a paper, a portion of a paper, or topic you have used in previous classes; this will not be accepted.


Develop a research paper that is full of up-to-date research (published within the last 5 years) on your topic. This includes using citations liberally throughout the paper (please do not include direct quotes).

The assignment must meet the following requirements:

Include a title page in current APA format.

At least 3–5 pages of content (the body of the paper) while demonstrating your understanding of the theories. Be sure to integrate Christian counseling theories in your discussion of this issue.

For example, if you chose depression as your topic, you should discuss how Christian Counseling theories speak to our understanding of this issue and/or its treatment.

A reference page in current APA format with at least 4 scholarly sources and the Bible.

An abstract is not required.

Emphasize quality before quantity.

Follow current APA guidelines throughout the paper.

Your paper must be typed, be double-spaced, and use a current APA approved font.

Must cite at least 4 scholarly references in addition to the Bible. The textbook is not considered one of the 4 required scholarly sources.

The list of sources may be changed if needed, just be sure they still meet the source requirements.
