Content of the paper:
• You MUST have three scientific citations to support your paper. The citations may come from the textbook or a professional journal but NOT popular press. Better sources include scientific (peer reviewed) journals.

6. What might have been done to change the development of this character in regards to the psychological concepts you have chosen to study? Family, peers, environment, medication, etc…
