    As part of an assignment on my psychology course we have been given a month to write a research report. Everyone in my class seems to have some sort of clue about what they want to do, and I can't find anything.

    I'm beginning to panic now as we have to present our idea's to our tutor within the next week or so and I have no idea what to do.

    I'm just looking for some ideas, or useful sources that could help me with my report? I just feel a bit lost and need a nudge in the right direction.

    I can mimic a report from the past, ofcourse. I basically just need a website/book or some names to help me research into past experiments?

    Any help will be appreciated,
    Nancy.

    Try flicking through the latest publications in the clinical psych journals. There will inevitably be some anxiety/phobia papers. Then go through their literature and see if there is something you can replicate or modify.

    I highly doubt the ethical committee would allow that to go ahead nowadays. Poor kid
