I am doing EPQ this year and I'm not sure what topic to choose. The three topics I'm interested in are DID (dissociative identity disorder) or the psychologically behind domestic abuse. I'm not sure which to choose and I'm having trouble coming up with a question/ working title for the topics. Could someone help me decide which is the best topic to do and what the question should be?

They're all big topics so you need to pick quite a small focus of one of them for your EPQ. Are you interested in why these things occur? how early diagnosis can help? strategies for living with them?

Brainstorm each one to narrow down the topic. Keep all this as it is evidence for your log of how you decided on a title. Look how much research there is available and how many relevant scholarly articles there are on each area. Maybe choose the one you are most interested in. It needs to be a title which there is enough research on and which enables you to show some good analysis but one that is not too broad. 5000 words soon get used up.

would "why, psychologically, is it so hard for people to leave abusive relationships?" be a good question or is it still to broad? also is there a better way i could word it?

Hiya, I’ve just finished my EPQ based around psychology, the biggest tip to get a good grade is to make your title a question, for instance ‘to what extent is DID caused by traumatic life experiences’. I was told you should be doing something that couldn’t just be looked up on google, it needs to be a conclusion based on your own/compiled from others research

First you need to show that they do. Then answer the question. With an introduction, conclusion and possible abstract I think this will be hard in 5000 words.
