Description:

The paper first looks at J. Wagner and M. Rehfuss' article "Self-Injury, Sexual Self-Concept, and a Conservative Christian Upbringing: An Exploratory Study of Three Young Women's Perspectives," in which the qualitative and exploratory research question is if a conservative Christian upbringing is correlated with self-injurious behavior and negative sexual self-concept. Next, the author analyzes Alexander, Tajuddin and Gangadharan's reported literature review "Personality Disorders in Intellectual Disability: Approaches to Pharmacotherapy," in which the research question is how psychotropic medications are most effective for populations diagnosed both with an intellectual disability and a personality disorder. The paper concludes by reviewing an article by Lyon, Benoit, O'Donnell, Getson, Silber and Walsh entitled "Assessing African-American adolescents' risk for suicide attempts: attachment theory," about research that focuses on the possibility that attachment theory might explain suicide attempts in the African-American community and other situational variables.

From the Paper:

"The results are adequately and correctly reported, but with insufficient detail. Narrowing the study to a narrower question would have helped. Moreover, the author does not actually mention why the research is necessary other than to promote the use of pharmacological interventions among a population diagnosed with both an intellectual disability and a personality disorder. The article is a worthy systematic analysis of research but has little to offer the clinical community."
