Treatment of Psychological Disorders
For the project, you are asked to select a disorder you would like to know more about. You may choose any disorder which falls under the areas of the DSM-5 we have explored in this course. You are then asked to search for scholarly (i.e., peer reviewed, empirically based) articles to investigate the types of treatments which have been tested for the disorder. Please keep in mind that newspapers, Newsweek style magazines, or informational web pages such as Web MD or About.com are not considered scholarly. If you are unsure if an article is scholarly, please review the information found on the following web page, and/or ask me:
Use your critical thinking skills to examine the effectiveness of the treatments that are presented in the research. For some diagnoses you may find multiple types of treatments which have been tried and tested, and for others you may find that only a limited type of treatment has been tested. For some others, you may find that the treatment varies depending on the severity and or timing of the diagnosis, as well as other factors. It is up to you to compare these findings in the literature. In research articles, the authors will generally talk about the theory or theories in which their studies are based. For the treatments in the articles you find, pay attention to what the authors are saying about the theories which provide the backdrop for the treatment(s). The final product should be a high quality, 3 page paper minimum paper, not including the title, or reference pages. The paper must be typed, doubled-spaced (Times New Roman, 12-point font, one inch margins), and properly documented with section headings, in text citations, and references, using the APA style. The paper will be evaluated on organization, critical thinking, clarity of presentation, and the use of APA style. It should include the following:
· A brief introduction to the DSM-5 Diagnosis you chose, including a discussion of the DSM-5 criteria
· For each treatment, a discussion of the theoretical framework which forms the basis of the treatment (e.g., If systematic desensitization is chosen, which is rooted in Behaviorism, you would discuss Behaviorism)
· A discussion of the history of the treatment of your diagnosis (i.e., How has treatment of the disorder changed over time?)
· A discussion of the specifics of each treatment option (i.e., What is it and how does it work? If it is medication, what dosage is typically used? Does the treatment change as the course of the diagnosis changes? How does age factor into treatment,
