identify a potential research problems

my dissertation topic: Psychology of Music in Positive Psychology as it pertain to the mindset in praise and worship.

Use the evidence from your previous article readings to present the research area and from that body of evidence, present a potential research problem. Write a paper to identify your potential research problem by including the following:

  • Introduce your area. Include a broad overview of the area, and then focus on the specific part of that area you will present the problem for. Support all claims with references.
  • Write a Problem Statement of no more than 500 words. Begin with “The problem to be addressed by this study is…”. This statement should logically flow from the introduction and clearly identify the problem to be addressed by the study.
  • Offer a brief discussion of the problem and provide evidence of its existence.
  • Identify who is influenced by the problem (e.g., individuals, organizations, industries, or society), what is unknown that should be known about it, and what the potential negative consequences could be if the problem is unaddressed in this study.

Support your assignment with at least five of the resources you used for last week’s annotated bibliography. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.
