Abnormal Psychology Paper
Exploration of a psychological disorder
1) Choose a psychological disorder you are interested in.
2) Research your topic. The textbook is a great starting point. Avoid Wikipedia.
3) 1st paragraph introduce your topic. (Do not say “I am going to talk about…) No “I’s” in this paper.
4) Include typical symptoms of the disorder.
5) What are the different theories on the causes of the disorder (biological-psycho-social, etc.)?
6) What specific treatments, therapeutic and medication, are used for the disorder?
7) Prevalence (i.e. age, culture, family patterns)
8) Interesting facts about the disorder (i.e. popular or famous people with the disorder)
9) Include at least 3 scholarly resources.
(Students will lose points for using the following: DO NOT USE: simplypsychology.com or K. Cherry at verywellminded.com, goodtherapy.com and NO Wikiapedia) Locate scholarly sources to complete the paper. Websites ending in .org, .edu or .gov are typically scholarly. The SCC online library is also easily accessible.
10) Important Information: Paper should include APA formatted citations and a references section, and title page. The paper should be 5 pages in length, First page is the title page, pages 2, 3, & 4 content pages (full pages of content–the actual paper that you write), 5th page references page.
If you do not have a reference page or internal citations, you will receive a ZERO, because you have plagiarized. When using other people’s thoughts, ideas and/or words you must give them credit (i.e. citations). Plagiarism will not be tolerated and you will receive a zero for the assignment. When in doubt—cite.
