Psychology Capstone Project Ideas

Psychology is a science that studies the mind of humans and its functions, especially those functions affecting behaviors. Psychopathology is very broad, and its broadness sometimes throws students into confusion while they make efforts to choose psychology capstone project ideas. In fact, some students believe that coming up with a good psychology capstone project idea is harder than the actual process of project writing. We have decided to help students with capstone project ideas so that they can succeed in their academics. We have listed the best psychology capstone project ideas here for students. You will find these topics as you scroll down. All the capstone project ideas that we listed here are interesting and easy enough for students to use. We strongly believe that students will easily know what to write about their projects if they use the topics below. We took our time to gather only the popular concepts of psychology so that students can work with very familiar ideas. By using our ideas for your capstone project, you will surely make the most out of your project.

Client-centered care is important for clients who are admitted to hospitals, and can extend beyond discharge from hospitals to help them continue to be successful with their goals. Research shows that follow-up conversations are not always occurring once clients discharge from hospitals. This poster highlights a small study conducted to follow up with clients post-discharge to see if there were any lingering questions, how their transition went, and if there were any barriers to following through with their discharge goals. Based on the findings from this small study, post-discharge follow up can be beneficial and helpful for clients. 

Continuation of Client-Centered Care Post-Hospital Discharge

Brenda adams, community health center of southeast kansas school board, the impact of adverse childhood experiences .

My poster explains what Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are and how the trauma that comes with these experiences, may impact children as well as adults. A child’s background and home life are not always taken into consideration when they are experiencing difficulties during school. By educating teachers, parents, and school administrators, a social worker is better able to help give these children the protective factors they need to thus promote healthy development and alleviate these traumatic factors. 

The Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences

Courtney Alexander

Van go, inc..

The purpose of a suicide screening tool at Van Go is to both fill a gap in service and to eventually lead to the creation of a pipeline between community organizations. Early intervention and identification are imperative to suicide prevention for young people and Van Go’s target clients fall within the age group where suicide is the second leading cause of death. Implementing the Ask Suicide-Screening Questions (ASQ) periodically throughout the year will allow clients to disclose suicidal ideation and be connected to additional services as needed.  

Benefits of Implementing a Suicide Screening

Gabriella Barnum

Swope community health center.

Enhanced Care Pathway is a program to provide extra support to patients at risk for suicide. This was inspired by Zero Suicide, and similar programs have already been implemented in other clinics in the area. This will start in the behavioral health clinic, but the end goal is for the entire clinic (including remote locations) to participate fully.

Enhanced Care Pathway

Relationship changes between persons with Alzheimer’s Disease (pwAD) and caregivers are perhaps some of the saddest consequences of dementia. These changes often result in role reversal, detachment, and/or isolation. Due to the nature of loss in the caregiver and pwAD’s relationship, it can become challenging to work through feelings of grief. Due to the unique impacts this has on caregivers, I wanted to explore theories that can be used to devise interventions that meet the challenges of caregiving and improve the relationships between pwAD and caregivers at end-of-life.

Valeo behavioral health care, assessing & improving  interprofessional collaboration in a community mental health center.

Integrated care models have become the gold standard in healthcare due to their ability to simultaneously deliver excellent quality of care at optimized costs while improving population health and the work life of health care providers. However, the "quadruple aim" of integrated healthcare can only be achieved with effective interprofessional collaboration (IPC). Recognizing the important role IPC plays in the equitable delivery of high-quality, person-centered, comprehensive healthcare, I developed a survey to assess IPC within my agency. I then used the results of this survey to inform a report offering research-based suggestions for improving IPC within the organization.

Edan Alemayehu Belihu

University of kansas health systems.

As part of the integrated healthcare team, I have had the opportunity to work with Leukemia and Bone Marrow Transplant patients. While most patients experience some difficulties during treatment, I have seen undocumented patients impacted the most. Undocumented patients face a broad range of social, financial, legal, and language barriers as they strive for treatment. My project focused on how to work within the interdisciplinary team to reduce these barriers and ensure that undocumented patients are treated and achieve positive outcomes.

TTRPGs can be used for group therapy. They can effectively treat the symptoms of multiple disorders in a diverse group of clients. This poster gives the basic information necessary for a therapist to achieve an understanding of what this therapy can do. Along with a little research and experience, they should be able to lead or co-facilitate a TTRPG therapy group.

Kasey Bossard

Usd 497-southwest middle school.

I observed a multifaceted gap within the school setting regarding LGBTQ awareness and inclusivity both in the educational systems and in the classrooms. Because there was a void of comprehensive LGBTQ policies and basic knowledge, students were burdened with the responsibility to make space for themselves. As a social worker and ally, I wanted to advocate for students by addressing the questions and concerns teachers had and how to effectively advocate for LGBTQIA students. Through providing education, resources, and giving updated tools to the staff to implement in their practice.

Empowering Teachers to be Student Allies

Tennyson Clary

Family guidance center.

Previously during the training process at Family Guidance Center, workers were only given a resource list for the largest county that is served. However, the agency serves nine counties altogether. This project focused on creating a comprehensive resource list for each county that is served and then distributing it to each employee during the training/orientation process.

University health-truman medical center, psychological first aid for victims of crime .

This poster provides an overview of Psychological First Aid for Victims of Crime (PFA-VC). Psychological First Aid (PFA) is traditionally used to help adults, children, and families in the aftermath of a disaster. This form of PFA focuses on assessing and creating interventions for those who are victims of crime. The PFA-VC approach allows social workers and other victim advocates to identify and meet each victim’s specific needs.

Olivia Doucas

Research psychiatric center.

Research Psychiatric Center is an inpatient psychiatric care center in Kansas City, MO that provides comprehensive behavioral health services for teenagers, adults, and seniors. One of my roles as a student was facilitating forty-five-minute group therapy sessions daily for adult patients at different ages with a variety of psychiatric diagnosis facing many different barriers. I asked patients for their feedback on groups using a set of questions I created. This project is focused on patient feedback and provides resources for future students conducting group therapy in inpatient settings.

Four county mental health center.

The Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model is an evidence-based practice that gives services to clients in need that would not do well in a traditional setting.  Not only providing individual therapy and case management, but also the ACT team will assist with medicine management and other client needs.  Four County Mental Health is the first rural use of this model in the United States and offers key insights into success and setbacks.

Chelsea Fluker

Children's mercy hospital.

This topic was selected due to the noted increase in pediatric behavioral health patients visiting the Emergency Department who are experiencing continued mood and behavior dysregulation in conjunction with the increase of wait times and difficulty connecting to resources during these emergency visits. This project will provide an overview of the ER environment in comparison to the therapeutic environments of behavioral health urgent cares currently being developed around the nation. In addition, potential for implementing change within the emergency room will be explored in order to mitigate wait times, increase resources, and create a safer environment for both staff and patients based on the therapeutic models of behavioral urgent cares.

Ku alzheimer’s disease research center, changes in perception of people with alzheimer's and other dementias after listening to the experience league.

The Experience League is a panel of people with early-stage Alzheimer's or another form of dementia that virtually speak with students about what life is like living with a diagnosis. When asked what three words come to mind when thinking about dementia/Alzheimer's before listening to the Experience League, students frequently responded with forgetful, sad, and confused. When students were asked the same question after listening to the Experience League, they frequently responded with support, strong, resilient, and courageous.

The Sobriety Treatment and Recovery Teams (START) module is a child welfare intervention that has been shown, when implemented with fidelity, to improve outcomes for both parents and children affected from prenatal substance use disorder. This START module uses a variety of strategies from theories such as Attachment Theory and Self Determination to promote collaboration and system-level change within and between the child welfare agencies. Prevention, permanency and parent recovery outcomes show promise for the START module.

Atchison community health clinic, implementing sbirt in integrated health care  .

The purpose of this project was to take what I learned in our February IHS training and apply it to my practicum site. Atchison Community Health Clinic (ACHC) is an FQHC serving northeast Kansans in an integrated and holistic manner. The primary care physicians would address patient needs with initial positive screens, but not use psychoeducation or motivational interviewing techniques to decrease substance or alcohol use. I feel like I can make a difference as a Behavioral Health Consultant by freeing up time for our PCPs and by helping the patients with motivational interviewing, referral to specialty clinicians when needed, psychoeducation of the effects of alcohol and substance use on the mind and the body, and encouragement for all. 

Implementing SBIRT in Integrated Health Care

Amanda Graham

Community health center of southeast kansas.

Police officers are progressively the first responders/professionals to assist individuals within the community when a mental health crisis is being experienced. Many officers have shared that they do not feel equipped, prepared, or obtain the needed skills to respond appropriately to mental health crises. An operative and effective approach in response to mental health crisis involves collaboration between health, mental health, and police professionals. This is to warrant the safety of the effected community members and provide beneficial emergency access to mental health support, if needed.

Crime and Care

Brandi Harris

I had a two-question survey at the reception desk for adults to volunteer to fill out that came into the behavioral health side of the clinic for services. First question: Should childcare services be offered while parents receive behavioral health services. The second question was what other resources you would like to see offered on the behavioral health side. Also wanted to see if there was any research study done on trauma link to children being present listening in on parent's therapy sessions. I have had several small children attend parent sessions because of no babysitter. I could not find any research data of this nature.

Childcare Services While Parents Receive Behavioral Health Services

Southeast Kanas Mental Health Center

Southeast Kansas Mental Health Center (SEKMHC) is located in rural Southeast Kansas (SEK) and covers six counties: Bourbon, Lynn, Neosho, Woodson, Allen, and Anderson.  The mission of SEK is to advocate and coordinate quality mental health services in our area and to improve quality of life in SEK.  By adopting the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) model, it has enhanced training opportunities for therapists and staff, offered effective treatment to match the needs of clients, and reached underserved populations throughout SEK.  This shift in mindset has given the agency the most impact with clients, high frequency sessions with therapists, well-coordinated and multifaceted evidence based treatments, and leverage services that have been underutilized.

Compass behavioral health (garden city), outcome rating scale (ors) and session rating scale: the importance of client progress evaluation and feedback .

With each of my clients, we completed to ORS at the beginning of each session and the SRS at the end of each session with time to discuss progress and feedback. The client would rate each category on a scale of 1-10. Overtime, I complied graphs on each client’s progress and allowed them time to give me feedback surrounding the session. This is something other clinicians may implement in their own practice for progress tracking and client feedback.

Outcome Rating Scale and Session Rating Scale

Kimberly Johnson

Satori counseling services.

This year my practicum was at Satori Counseling Services where I provided supervised visitation and therapy for a father. This experience sparked my interest in exploring custody bias with fathers. Awareness of this issue is important for social workers because Fathers are equally capable in determining child best interest, nurturing, providing safety, and having a predictable routine for their children. Meditation and supervised visitation can support parents in custody situations to decrease custody bias against fathers.  

Custody Bias

Kim Keating

Pawnee mental health crisis stabilization unit.

A collaborative approach towards interning at the Crisis Stabilization Unit. I created this resource guide as a tool for inters as they start off at the CSU to empower them with the tools and information past interns found helpful in their work with clients on the unit. This is an effort to lessen the anxiety of being new to the field and entering an atmosphere that caters exclusively to individuals experiencing low to high levels of crisis. The aim is to keep interns from feeling as if they are starting out at "square one", but rather they have a plethora of tools created by other students who were in their same place and know what is most helpful in this setting. I was the sole creator of the project, however, did gather information from a plethora of sources, and got feedback directly from therapists on the unit, and other inters already placed there. Additionally, the hope is for future interns to add their own tools and frameworks they found to be of most help, so that the book never stops evolving and keeping with the latest and best practice.

Implemented the BackSnack Program at Blue Valley West High School. This is a confidential program to students, families, and staff. The BackSnack Program provides weekly food packs to those who want to participate. It’s important for schools to be aware of food insecurity that students may face and how it can impact them academically and socially.

Children’s Mercy Hospital provides transportation assistance to patients and families to increase access to medical care. Due to a widespread shortage in accessible vehicle rides through these services and through Medicaid transportation, patients using wheelchairs struggle to find rides, resulting in long waits, missed appointments, and long-term barriers to care. Using information recorded in Children’s Mercy EMR, I gathered and presented information regarding the need for improved accessible transportation options and suggested possible next steps to hospital stakeholders.

Children's mercy hospital (development & behavioral clinic), behavioral health care:  bridging language & cultural barriers.

Developing, implementing, and providing health literacy supports to non-English speaking families accessing developmental & behavioral care at Children's Mercy. By providing additional, cost-effective supports and making small adjustments to the existing intake system, that will help increase Spanish and non-English families to be able to access care that will align more with other clinics at Children's Mercy. This will promote diversity and inclusion of all community members and will reduce healthcare disparities among patients.

University health behavioral heath .

Acute mental health care settings work with vulnerable populations including individuals with severe mental health illness and substance use. Patients are often readmitted due to chronic mental illness and substance use and this is prevalent in the mental health field. Coordinating patients care after discharge is crucial because this can improve their quality of life by ensuring continuity of care to deal with crisis management, coping skills, and meaningful communication with their health service providers.

Kvc hospitals, transgender youth in inpatient psychiatric settings .

KVC Hospital Kansas City is an inpatient psychiatric facility with the goal of stabilizing clients in crisis. There are five inpatient units, caring for clients ages six to 17. Currently, clients are assigned to units based on gender and age. Transgender and gender-diverse clients are usually placed on a unit on their gender assigned at birth rather than gender identity. Transgender and gender-diverse youth deserve an environment where they feel safe and affirmed. Specialized units on which clients can milieu based on gender identity, not assigned gender, is necessary for treatment and identity confirming healthcare. 

Transgender Youth in Inpatient Psychiatric Settings

Misty Phillips

Osawatomie state hospital.

I completed my Capstone Project on the effectiveness of interdisciplinary teams (IDT). My practicum is at Osawatomie State Hospital, and IDT meetings are an essential part of daily services. The IDT involves team members from different disciplines working together with a common purpose to set goals, make decisions, and share resources and responsibilities. The IDT team meetings contribute to better care and satisfaction for the clients.

Effectiveness of Interdisciplinary Teams

Melissa Ramig

Goodland regional medical center.

My project is about Animal-Assisted Interventions in an Integrated Health Setting. In my research I found the benefits of utilizing animals (mostly dogs) in a healthcare facility to foster therapeutic relationships. Human-animal interactions have been found to have beneficial short and long term physical and mental health outcomes and are even considered a protective factor for people who own companion animals. Utilizing therapy animals in inpatient & outpatient healthcare settings have benefits that far outweigh the risks and could benefit our especially challenging populations such as children & the aging population. Therapy animals in any healthcare facilities, including nursing homes, have substantial benefits to patients & residents that could improve health, satisfaction of care, and boost morale. 

Animal-Assisted Interventions in an Integrated Health Setting

Jonathan E. Ruiz

Samuel u. rodgers health center.

In the United States, there is a big disparity in access to healthcare, it is often thought of as a luxury, whereas in other “western” countries it is more widely available, because of that the access that marginalized identities such as black, indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) women have to healthcare is greatly impacted. But making it to the appointment is one thing, but facing medical bias is another thing as well, that is something that black, indigenous, womxn of color face disproportionately. In a system that has this type of bias it’s important to practice cultural competency in all settings, my research poster poses suggestions to social work practice that we can incorporate into our practice, and using the effective Behavioral Health Consultant model, just like the one used at Samuel Rodgers Health Center we can strive for better culturally competent patient outcomes.

Johnson county mental health – adult detox unit & crisis recovery center.

My practicum is at Johnson County Mental Health in the Adult Detox and Crisis Recovery Center. Client’s come here for 3-5 days to socially detox (not a medical detox). They are then provided with a drug and alcohol assessment which the state will pay for unless they have private insurance. The assessment helps determine the level of care recommendation for the client. The crisis recovery center is with the adult detox, which is for clients who are needing a step down from inpatient hospitalization. It is considered a residential center. The problem that was identified for the poster was “Staff burnout during COVID-19” (specifically in residential settings). To measure this, I created a survey to see the impact on Covid-19 and burnout with staff:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BCCVM9M . We then created a list of possible solutions to prevent and decrease staff burnout after getting the results of the survey. We have found some articles that discuss Covid-19 and burnout or about the "Great Resignation" as well. This issue is unfortunately so prevalent right now in many workplaces.

Access family care.

The BHC (Behavioral Health Consultant) Resource Book was created to provide providers with accessible, helpful materials to share with patients during warm handoffs. Access Family Care uses warm handoffs in the primary clinic, pediatrics, dental, and OBGYN offices. The Resource Book contains handouts and information on topics ranging from tobacco cessation to depression and anxiety. The book is a living document that can be adjusted as time goes on and is utilized in hard copy and digital format in the clinic.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among adolescents and young adults in the United States, with the majority of suicides occurring among LGBTQ+ youth. Due to the tumultuous time of development and social pressures, there is an immense need for interventions targeted to adolescents. In order to meet this need, I created a 4-week adolescent intensive outpatient program for my practicum site. This will increase accessibility to treatment for adolescents in the Kansas City area. 

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program

Angela Swetnam

Lilac center.

Working with adolescents in mental health, social workers often hear them say that they wished their parents understood their mental illness.  Social workers also hear from parents and caregivers that they do not know how to best support their teenager and feelings of inadequacy.  By integrating family therapy in adolescent intensive outpatient dialectical treatment, social workers can best support the family as a unit and as individual members through teaching effective communication, coping skills and strategies.

Blue valley academy.

In the Blue Valley School District, teen suicide risk and mental health issues are a growing concern as we are seeing an uptick in the prevalence of teen mental health issues. Children’s Mercy paired with the Blue Valley School District to provide more support in school for youth in grades K-12 by providing more social workers in schools. With the added support, programs have been implemented to assist in intervening with suicide risk on a district wide level through peer support programming. Peer support programming aims to empower youth to de-stigmatize mental health as well as aid in changing school norms that are harmful through the power of social connection. At Blue Valley Academy, we have implemented a program called Sources of Strength and worked with our youth in using their skills and connections to generate conversations around mental health with their peers. 

Teen Suicide Prevention and Peer Support Practices

Bailey Wilson

Kansas suicide prevention headquarters.

This project involved creating an ongoing training that centers around work with youth and young adults for staff and volunteers answering national and local suicide hotlines. The aim is to bring awareness to issues and risk factors specific to this population and provide resources to better serve young people experiencing crisis.

University of kansas health system case management.

The University of Kansas Health System (TUKHS) developed a multi-visit patient (MVP) program to support patients with complex needs, which are difficult to meet with typical case management services. For this project, I interviewed several TUKHS providers about their knowledge of and collaboration with the MVP program. Interview respondents indicated that their care coordination tasks varied by their specialty and individual workflow. Providers also had a strong interest in data on the MVP program's outcomes. 

Maximizing the Multi-Visit Patient Program Impact

Type 2 diabetes affects millions of Americans and managing this chronic illness places considerable stress and expense on patients and the healthcare system. An integrated health approach allows patients to receive comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary team of professionals. This qualitative study shares the results of interviews regarding diabetes management within an integrated Internal Medicine practice. It emphasizes how clinical social workers can contribute to patient care through their expertise on behavior change and resource referrals for negative SDOH (social determinants of health).

Whether you are a BSN, MSN, or DNP student, we are optimistic that this comprehensive list on the internet is all you need to begin brainstorming on your capstone project topics .

What is the Nursing Capstone Project?

A nursing capstone project also referred to as a senior capstone or capstone experience refers to an academic paper that consolidates practical work experience, experimentation, facts to help identify real-world setting issues, and applying skills from class to develop actionable solutions. Capstone projects in nursing can either be inclined towards research or problem-solving.

A nursing capstone paper can be anywhere between 20 pages and 100 pages in length. It should have a compelling argument, exhibit the choice of excellent capstone nursing topics.

Capstone projects are evidence-based practice (EBP) projects and reinforce best practices in different nursing fields. A common focus of the capstone projects in nursing is how to implement technology into practice and effective care delivery. They also revolve around finding solutions for better healthcare management of the staff and staffing issues.

When undertaking a capstone project course, a student works with a practicing professional (a capstone graduate) to help them all the way, offer real-world experience, and advise on the design.

Why Capstone Projects are Important for Nursing Students

There are many goals of a nursing capstone project. These reasons are anchor the need for most students to choose a capstone project over a nursing thesis if given a chance.

A good capstone project must reflect research ethics, statistics, program theory, leadership and is always preceded by a capstone research proposal.

Given the goals, graduate program capstone projects in nursing might take an entire semester. On the other hand, BSN capstone projects might take ten weeks to two semesters.

Do you need help with writing your nursing capstone project?

Difference between a Nursing Capstone Project and a Nursing Thesis

As you get close to the final term and the residency program gets closer, you will most likely either handle a thesis or a capstone project. A typical confusing question nursing students ask is, what's the difference between a capstone and a thesis in nursing? We have the answers right here for you.

Most nursing programs, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, mandate that the students complete either a nursing thesis or a capstone project.  While a thesis project is meant to focus on a general issue and provide insights to the reader, a capstone thinly focuses on a specific issue, concern, or problem in the realm of nursing.

Also, unlike a thesis that presents a theory or solution, a capstone paper describes the issue using a fact-based approach.

A capstone project is most likely to be assigned from undergraduate to graduate level, whereas a nursing thesis is only assigned to graduate nursing students. Nursing capstone projects are also more focused compared to the theses. One of the reasons is because a capstone demonstrates the understanding of the topic through a detailed analytical approach. On the other hand, a thesis paper for nursing entails the generation of hypothesis or research questions, conducting research, analysis of data, explanation of the findings, and concluding as well as recommending the evidence-based practice.

Even with the differences, both nursing thesis and capstone projects form grounds for evidence-based practice in nursing.

When objectively reading recent articles published in nursing and medical-related journals is a viable way to come up with worthy capstone project ideas for your nursing capstone projects.

3. Clinical Rounds

You can convert the knowledge on your experiences during your clinical rounds and when offering care to the patient. How did you feel? What were some of the challenges? What concepts worked, and which ones flopped? Did the clinical facility apply evidence-based practice or evidence-based nursing? Were the staff focused on patient-centered care? You can generate many ideas at the end of the day by just reflecting on your clinical.

4. Nursing Capstone Papers from Past Classes

You will most likely be paired with a graduate capstone student. You can also ask your instructor and friends who have been through the nursing capstone paper writing process.

Skim through the past nursing capstone papers and see if some ideas come to mind. You will notice that as you interact with the content, your mind will wander into insightful topic ideas for your capstone project.

5. Class Notes and Material

The course objectives are given before you commence a course that can also be a starting point to brainstorm for nursing capstone ideas. As you read the objectives, you will understand what the end project capstone paper must look like. Also, class notes and reading material can give you useful insights. Still, you can comb through your past nursing essays, research papers, concept papers, and term papers or case studies to get good nursing capstone ideas.

Recommended:  Get Biology Paper Writing Service

Regardless of what area of nursing you want to specialize it is important to remain specific. You can consider choosing a topic that deals with ethics, diversity, history among other ideas for your research paper. However, the key rule with a nursing research paper is using relevant sources along with maintaining the research structure format.

The nursing research paper, as a rule, must have an introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion with the reference page, depending on the format requirements. Keep an academic writing style without bringing in colloquial language and first-person, if the paper is not a personal reflection.

When introducing facts in support of your argument, remember to provide a proper citation from relevant nursing journals, articles, and books to avoid plagiarism risks.

Nursing Research Process Components

Perfect nursing research always begins with prior research for possible topic ideas and finding the relevant academic journals dealing with the topic. Let’s say, for instance, you want to research child care. It is recommended to research works on this topic by other scholars to understand the challenges and relevant issues before settling on researchable topics under this segment. By doing so, you will find related sources and choose a little different approach to make your research paper unique.

The next step is the research paper introduction where you have to provide an interesting hook that can either be a solid statement or providing an arguable argumentation.  If you are writing a hot controversial research topic, consider making a claim that can is developed into a suitable thesis statement.

When writing the body paragraphs, you must desist from using too many ideas since this approach confuses your audience and generally makes it difficult to come up with a conclusive conclusion. As the concluding paragraph, make sure it calls to action and provides a personal recommendation or analysis of information conversed.

If you are going to use any statistics or comparison data in your research paper, make sure to include a full listing in the Appendix or notes if required. Be sure to use nursing theorists, support your arguments with accurate in-text citations and make your research paper’s qualitative elements prevail over quantitative.
