Psychoanalytical Model and Cancer
Write a paper in which you discuss cancer from a biopsychosocial perspective. More specifically, you should select one specific type of cancer and research three risk factors for that cancer (one biological, one psychological, and one social).
The paper should discuss how those risk factors are associated with the occurrence and/or recovery from that cancer. Find primary sources (i.e., research journal articles) that addresses each risk factor and CITE them. Do not use non-academic, non-scholarly sources (i.e., no websites, magazine articles, etc.).
For each risk factor, briefly describe the research reported in the journal article (4 different sources) (How was the study conducted? Who were the participants? What were the results?). Then discuss how, taken together, these studies contribute to a biopsychosocial understanding of cancer (Which factor(s) seem(s) to play the biggest role? Which has/have the strongest research support? How might the factors interact to influence cancer risk? etc.) FOUR SOURCES MINIMUM.
The paper should be approximately 4 pages long, double-spaced, with 12 pt font and 1-inch margins. The paper should also include an APA style reference page and in-text citations.
