psychology disorders

Why study psychological disorders? Odds are that you know or will know people with psychological disorders; you may even have one yourself. Find one disorder in Chapter 12 in which you have an interest. After reading Chapters 12 and 13,  describe the symptoms, types, and origins of the disorder.

The assignment will be graded on the following:

  • Provide enough information and detail to support and explain your experiences, thoughts, and/or ideas.
  • Provide information that reflects an understanding of the assigned readings.
  • Write in complete sentences using correct grammar and proper punctuation.
  • Do not use text message acronyms.
  • Make sure that your purpose/thesis is evident.
  • Your paragraphs should clearly support the purpose/thesis.
  • Sentences within a paragraph should clearly support the topic of that paragraph.
  • Be sure that the content within the assignment is placed in a logical order.
  • Your transitions between ideas should illustrate the relationship between ideas and allow the reader to pass from one idea to the next without confusion.
  • Your conclusion/conclusions should be apparent and clearly defined.
