5- The researcher may use the experimental method, one group would be given group therapy while another would be placebo, in this research, IV would be gender, age, and DV would be therapy and effects used by the researcher.
6- To find the relationship between variables and conditions, the correlational study would be preferred. The psychologist could measure both positive and negative correlations to validate the research.
