Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
This will be a discussion post for my doctoral aging and diversity class. You must support your response with at least two new peer-reviewed articles, but can also cite any of the provided resources. For this particular assignment, using Mehrota, Chandra and Wagner, Lisa. (2009). Aging and diversity 2nd ed. New York: Routledge.
Ch. 8 & Humboldt et al. (2014) respond to the following topic:
Discuss the issues related to religion and spirituality in later life. Substantial empirical evidence exists indicating that religion and spirituality are beneficial to people as they age, albeit the relationship between religion/spirituality and well-being, life satisfaction, and health is mysterious. Rarely do we examine the potentially negative aspects of religion and health. Discuss three potentially negative aspects of religion and/or spirituality as they relate to issues of diversity and aging.
The expectation for satisfactory work is 500 – 750 words per topic with at least 3 current peer reviewed references utilized. Textbooks, blogs, magazine or internet articles, book chapters, or special reports, do not count toward the peer-reviewed minimum. Connections to the peer reviewed references should be used throughout your writing with in-text citations and matching reference citations.
For your reference, I am a healthy, white 34-year old female from Kentucky. I am extremely active and spend a lot of time working out and eating healthy food. Also, I am a college professor in the Exercise Science department and own an online fitness and nutrition coaching business.
I have attached recommended resources to elaborate on the assignment expectations. Make sure to provide substantial evidence from scholarly resources and refrain from making generalized statements. Textbooks, blogs, magazine or internet articles, book chapters, or special reports, do not count toward scholarly resources.
