Clinical Psychology Research Paper

Spring semester my freshmen year, I took a course called clinical psychology. I enjoyed this class very much. One of my favorite elements to this course was writing the final paper. Our final research paper did not have too many strict guidelines, other than that the research paper we were to write had  to focus on one topic we studied in class. I decided to write my research paper on Megan’s Law. Megan’s Law is ethically controversial. Megan’s Law was a  law implemented in 1996. After the rape and murder of a young girl, Megan, by a sexual predator, her parents lobbied for a law to be passed that requires that the public have the capability of finding out whether or not a sexual predator lives in the area. This law of course created much controversy. I argued that there were many more negative sides to the law than there were positive, such as it ostracized sexual offenders and actually caused a relapse.
