Arianna Dotson RE: Discussion – Week 8 COLLAPSE This week we are to list the themes that we found within our articles that relate to our gap. In week 4, I noted that, “I observed a pattern amongst the studies that appeared to leave a gap for my current research study idea. Religion and spirituality are often studied with other variables that are not centered on emotional/psychological abuse. I believe this is a true research gap because the results of my study could potentially provide insight to prevention and treatment methods for victims of non-sexual spiritual abuse.” These are some of the themes that I have found while looking at the 10 articles that I have collected in this course: Emotional Abuse Trauma Post-Traumatic Child maltreatment Religious Coping Victims/Survivors Microaggressions Religion-related/Faith-based abuse These themes relate to the research gap because I want to focus on the victims’ perspectives and experiences in my research study. It also indicates themes for myself to look out for in my interview transcripts, such as: trauma, religious coping (how the victims view religion currently), and any instances of spiritual microaggressions that may have had an effect on them. All of the themes relate to my proposed topic, but none synthesize spiritual abuse from the victims perspective. Further, I have not created a summary table as indicated in the readings this week, but I may consider an edited version to help me organize my literature. Galvan (2015), suggests that the table can help students to visualize which articles/topics to use within their literature review (p. 91). I think that the summary table may help me to outline the themes I want to use in my literature review, and keep my thoughts organized. References Galvan, J. L. (2015).

Melonie Bland RE: Discussion – Week 8 COLLAPSE After selecting a topic and reading and analyzing various articles on the topic, it is important to organize and summarize the information in preparation for the literature review (Galvan, 2015). Creating summary tables may be helpful in keeping the information organized and can include definitions of the variables being considered, research methods and designs, and research results (Galvan, 2015). This exercise is helpful to begin identifying themes for the literature review. After reviewing various articles, I have identified the following themes: Generational differences in work ethics Factors that may increase sustainability with millennial workers Identifying reasons millennials may stay or leave organizations Most articles I have read so far have taken a quantitative approach to the research on millennials in the workplace and ask millennials to share responses to questionnaires and surveys from the ideas the researcher has about retaining millennials or the reasons they leave. This leaves a gap, as there are minimal studies that take a qualitative approach where millennials who have resigned from positions without providing sufficient notice can share their experiences. Instead of testing a hypothesis as to the factors that are causing millennials to stay or resign from positions, the study I am working on designing would take a narrative approach where participants would be able to share their stories and themes would be developed from their narratives.
