What is the problem statement (gap identified in the literature) this research addresses?

HI, So basically this assignment is a continuation of an earlier assignment. Earlier in this course we were told to research a topic of interest. I have uploaded my topic of interest along with the instructions for this assignment. I will also give you guys the sign in for my school portal so you can see any other information in this course you might need.

The purpose of the literature review is to make a compelling case for the study (i.e. the research topic/question that you are proposing). Each assertion must be supported by a citation. The literature review must be no more than 2 pages and must include at least 5 citations and references from peer-reviewed literature in current APA format. 3 out of the 5 citations must be published within the last 5 years. Conclusions from peer-reviewed articles must be provided to make a compelling case for the significance of the problem. In addition, relevance to the counseling field must be established, and the literature review must include an articulation of how the proposed study fills a gap in the peer-reviewed literature. You will need to demonstrate scholarly writing skills, paraphrasing the literature with no quotations. Along with a narrative of the previous literature surrounding the topic, the literature review portion of your research proposal must also explain the following:

What is the problem statement (gap identified in the literature) this research addresses? This must be stated clearly, using citations to tell the narrative.

What is the purpose of the research proposal (how this study fills the gap)? This must be stated clearly.

Research Questions
What is (are) the research question(s)?
Why is this research question important?
What research design will help answer your questions and why (see Heppner et al.
Chapter 6)? (Descriptive lab, Descriptive field design? Experimental lab design?
Experimental field design?)
o Will your research produce qualitative or quantitative data?
o If quantitative:
What is the researchers hypothesis? What is the null hypothesis?
What variables are you planning to explore?
How will you measure these variables? (in other words, what formalscale could you use to specifically measure this variable?)

How will this research investigation contribute to the field of counseling
