This is a 2 part assignment. You did the last one now we need to do an outline and then the final draft. I have copied the last assignment we did and enclosed the abstract for part one. If it needs to be changed then please change this. I need this by Sunday afternoon.
Assignment 2: Identifying Themes
For this assignment, you will develop a Title page, Abstract, and a References page. Articulate your main research/focal question as the opening for your paper. Be sure it is specific, researchable, and important to the field. Then go on to list a detailed outline of the body of the paper, (including all headings and subheadings). Be sure to format your entire paper, including the headings and subheadings according to APA style. Also include ten references with this outline.
The Relation between Heredity and Suicidal Behavior has many different experiments to use as examples. Some say that most individuals inherit the suicidal behavior and other does not. This paper will examine different experiments on the outcome of this topic and what might be influenced by genes that might run in a family. Then again there are the other factors that might show the influence of other suicidal behaviors. The outcome will provide different articles that will provide information on the behavior characteristics of suicidal behavior and what the interpersonal psychology theory of suicidal behavior just might be.

The Relation between Heredity and Suicidal Behavior
The paper will focus on examining the relation between heredity and suicidal behavior and also look into the interpersonal psychology theory of suicidal behavior. The paper will seek to affirm that suicidal behavior is influenced by genes that run in the family lineage and as such it could be inherited. Various theories can be used to explain the relationship between hereditary and suicidal behavior. One these theories are Interpersonal psychology theory of suicidal behavior. This theory provides that, acquired capability, belongingness and burdensome are the 3 main determinants of suicidal behavior. The paper will also provide articles review on the interpersonal psychology theory of suicidal behavior.
The Research questions
This paper is guided by the research question; what does the research show about the relation between heredity and suicidal behavior. This will help in formulating the best research methods and topics for the study.
In the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology a meta-analysis research paper on the Brain-derived neurotrophic factor gene in suicidal behavior is presented. This is a meta-analysis work that looks into the brain-derived neurotrophic factor gene in suicidal behavior. The analysis links the BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor) to suicidal behavior amongst individuals. The paper uses data from previously published samples and also its own present sample of 3352 subjects among which 1202 have a history of suicidal behavior. The analysis provides a trend in which the Met allele and genotypes carrying Met confer the risk of suicide and are also associated with the history of suicide attempts. The research therefore concludes that the BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) is a contributing factor to suicidality. The research gives room for investigating the role of BDNF in suicidal behavior (Zai, Manchia, De Luca, Tiwari, Chowdhury, Zai, Kennedy, 2012).
An article presented by (Smith, Ribeiro, Mikolajewski, Taylor, Joiner, Iacono, 2012) sought to examine of environmental and genetic contributions to the determinants of suicidal behavior among male twins. This is an original psychiatric research published in 2012. It examines the genetic and environmental contributions to the determinants of suicidal behavior among male wins. In light of the interpersonal psychology theory of suicide, the research focused on the individual differences in the proximal, jointly necessary and sufficient causes of suicidal behavior. According to the interpersonal psychology theory, acquired capability, belongingness and burdensome are the 3 main determinants of suicidal behavior. The research uses a sample of 348 male twins in their adolescent age and employs univariate biometric models to help estimate how the variance in belongingness, acquired capabilities and burdensomeness are affected by the magnitudes of non-additive genetic (D), additive genetic (A), non-shared environmental (E) and shared environmental (C) (Smith, Ribeiro, Mikolajewski, Taylor, Joiner, Iacono, 2012).
The research results showed that the best fitting model for acquired capability allowed for environmental and genetic effects, while the best fitting model for belongingness and burdensomeness allowed for non-shared and shared environmental effects. The research findings also provide that burdensomeness and belongingness could be more appropriate target for intervention compared to acquired capabilities (Smith et al, 2012).
Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology presents a case study on familial clustering of suicidal behavior and psychopathology in young suicide attempters. This is a case study that focuses on the familial clustering of suicidal behavior and psychopathology in young suicide attempts. Besides borrowing from previously done studies the case study takes the form of a population-based record-linkage study with a nested control design. The results show that out of the sample used, almost 47% of all the suicide attempts are likely to be connected to family psychopathology, and 13% are associated with family suicide attempt while 7% are associated with suicide completion and the remaining 25% are associated with their own psychology. The research provides that the evaluation of the suicidal behavior in families would form a great base for risk assessment especially among young psychiatric patients (Mittendorfer-Rutz, Rasmussen, Wasserman, 2008).

Assignment 1: LASA 2: Submitting Final Paper
Based on your review of the most recent, relevant research findings on your chosen topic, submit a final version of your literature review paper, integrating feedback received from your instructor.
Be sure to include a research/focal question, synthesis of the literature you reviewed, well-established conclusions, and points of discussion and/or future research. Apply current APA standards for editorial style, expression of ideas, and formatting of the text, headings, citations, and references. You may want to study the style and formatting illustrated in the sample APA paper in the Doc Sharing area and model your paper after it.
The following components, each in current APA style, must be included:
1. Title page
2. Running head with page numbers
4. 8-10 pages in the body of the paper. Be sure to: Articulate a research question which is specific, researchable, and important to the field.
