This is an assignment for my Experimental psychology class.

Write a 750-1000 statement briefly summarizing a problem, situation or ‘observation-in-need-of-scientific-explanation’ and brief description of the population or group to which the problem applies.

My topic is about the “effects of trauma on perceived levels of stress” and the population/group I need to focus on is “college students”. Explain why this topic needs more scientific observation/explanation and awareness.
