I need a methods section of a research proposal completed. The topic is PTSD among Men and Women in Law Enforcement. I will be using a stratified random sample. I want 200 participants. The strata are males/females. I need to determine if there is a correlation with gender and PTSD. The following headings should be utilized and expanded upon the paragraphs below the headings are simply directions. I need any sources, materials, questioners, etc, cited in APA style and copies attached. I also need this to be completed in a well written fashion. Absolutely no plagarism….

Participants

Begin
with indentation and describe in great details all the characteristics
(numbers; age; gender; ethnicity; locale or region where applicable) of the
participants you propose to use for your study. Explain your sampling
procedures, i.e., whether every person who fits your criteria will get to
participate in your study. If not, explain who will be excluded, and why?

Material

Begin
with indentation and describe, in details, the material you will be using for
the collection of your data. If you are usi ng a questionnaire, provide a
general description here; give examples of the type of questions to be included
in the survey, and how you will score the responses. Include a sample of your
entire questionnaire in the appendix of your report. If you are using an
instrument that has been used in other studies, provide a description; identify
the developers of the instrument, its psychometric features including
reliability and validity; how the instrument is administered; how it is scored,
and what the scores mean. State how the operational definition of all key terms
in your proposal will be measured.

Procedure

Begin
with indentation and provide a detailed, step-by-step description of how you
will solicit informed consent from the participants; where the study will be
conducted; what you will ask your participants to do; what question or
questions the data will answer, and how you will compile the data collected.
The important thing to ask yourself here is this: will any person, who is not
you, be able to follow the directions you describe in this section and collect
the data the way you envision it without you being present? If the directions
you provide require the person collecting the data to disturb your blissful
vacation somewhere on the white beaches of the Bahamas with a rude phone call
to ask you to explain what you mean at a certain point in your description
because they do not understand your written directions, or that some crucial
steps are missing for which your clarification is needed, your procedure is
lousy. A good procedure is one that your assistant will be able to follow
and collect the data in such a way that on your return from your vacation, you
will have no problem handing over the precious gift you bought for yourself to
the person for the good job he or she has done in our absence.
