Hi, I've decided to do my extended essay in Psychology(it's one of my HL subjects so seemed appropriate).The actual topic is suicide and the depression paradox
The structure is somewhere along the lines of intro,depression,bio,cognitive,sociocultural level of analysis and then conclusion(Is it a good break down of the title?).Its impossible to find books concentrating specifically on this topic and therefore at the moment my research is mainly done through internet sources(i've been told i'll have to find some books)( any recommendations for books?).To be trully honest my supervisor isn't all that helpful due to the fact he knows little about the extended essay part of the IB. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.....along the lines of how to get excellent psychology extended essays?Research help?Structural ideas?

What is your research question? Have you read any psychology extended essays? You can find some exemplars here.

I'd start searching Google Scholar and Amazon, you'll find tons of books on depression so you'll have to sift through all the results before you find ones that'll be helpful.
