“Use numerals for all numbers “that denote a specific place in a numbered series, parts of books and tables, and each number in a list of four or numbers” (APA, 2009, p. 115). Write Grade 6 (but sixth grade); Trial 5; Table 6; page 71 (do not cap page); chapter 8 (do not cap chapter); 2, 4, 6, and 8 words in a series”.
Gather a study-buddy bunch and host an after hours Psych n Stats Salon at your home!
The host receives a complimentary one hour face to face tutor session (valued of $35 and 30% discount off future tutorials).
Salons are online in n your home, backyard or local cafe (or pub ~:-) for Cairns locals, or via Skype (psi_tutor) or WizIQ for cyber colleagues.
A Party can be as short as 45 minutes or as long as half a day (4.5 hours). Recommended for a high tea evening with wine and cheese, the Psych n Stats Party is also suited to a day in the lounge, at the park or in the yard round a bbq.
Bring together classmates and share food and in-depth topic of choice conversations. Demonstrations and activities ar e options, as well as journal critique discussions or lecture and class tutorial reviews. Homework or exam prep are also possible through the flexibility of a Psych n Stat Party.

The use of statistics is of benefit to professional roles in psychology, social work, management, environmental sciences, human resources, education, finance, data mining and nursing and allied health disciplines.
“You may think that statistics would be relatively useless in law — and criminal law, in particular — but you’d be surprised. The logic of statistics is useful in developing legal arguments, and the methods of statistics are often directly applicable to data pertinent to a case” ~ Carlton F. Gunn, Attorney
Personal narratives detailing the lived experience of social anxiety, can be as informative as published empirical studies:
“In the regulation of behavior, the role of GABA neurons has been extensively studied in the circuit of fear, where GABA interneurons play key parts in the acquisition, storage and extinction of fear”
“…particularly molecules and processes that may pre-determine vulnerability or resilience, and those that may act to switch off or “unlearn” a response to an aversive event. The glutamate system is an interesting target in this respect, especially given the impact anxiety disorders have on neuroplasticity, cognition and affective function” (Harvey & Shahid, 2012).
“We identified 269 meta-analytic studies and reviewed of those a representative sample of 106 meta-analyses examining CBT…The strongest support exists for CBT of anxiety disorders, somatoform disorders, bulimia, anger control problems, and general stress…
CBT showed higher response rates than the comparison conditions in seven of these reviews and only one review reported that CBT had lower response rates than comparison treatments…However, additional research is needed to examine the efficacy of CBT for randomized-controlled studies” (Hofman, Asnaani, Imke, Vonk, Sawyer, & Fang, 2012).
Qualitative research can deepen your understanding of a phenomena.
The lived experience can be expressed in narrative, through structured interview, categorising and rating, or as part of a focus group.
As well, phenomenological methods provide personal interpretations of an experience. Interpretations highlight important moments and identify gaps in knowledge to meet the needs and expectations of a population.
Following are a selection of research resources to help determine if phenomenological is the approach for your study. And ways to go about implementing such a design to answer your research questions.
As a psych n stats tutor I read many a lab report.
Following are some resources I gathered this evening, that aim to help you to enrich your critical writing and descriptive skills when writing a psychology lab report.
Note in the first video that APA 5th formatting style is used. Currently APA 6th is the required.
Also, I disagree with Stewart’s advice to students to not be explicit about random/non-random sampling used. How do you and I know, that you actually understand what you are saying by random, if you do not state it (with citation and date).
How to Format a Lab Report (Tables) Note that the Chemistry Lecturer does not align with APA 6th criteria. So, use the tips and tricks for creating Tables to align with APA expectations.
Lab Writing Tips is great as it provides sets of questions to be answered, and so each section of the lab report gets written. Then all you need do is flesh it out with evidence for examples etc.
Again, remember that APA 6th formatting style is what is expected of you as a student of psychology.
