This research assignment focuses on learning and teaching classmates about psychological disorders using references beyond the textbook. Chapter 14 covers six major areas:
Basic Concepts of Psychological Disorders (pgs. 493-503)
Rates of Psychological Disorders (pgs. 503-505)
Anxiety Disorders, OCD, and PTSD (pgs. 505-512)
Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder (pgs. 513-522)
Schizophrenia and Other Disorders (pgs. 522-533)

Choose a specific topic within one of these major areas that you find particularly interesting or one that you just want to learn more about. Your task is to engage in research to find more information about the topic (i.e., go beyond the information in the text). You will share your research findings with all of us, teaching us about psychological disorders or a related topic. Use just one of the following presentation methods of your choice:
METHOD 1: Write a 5-7 paragraph “mini-lecture” on the topic from the perspective of a professor of psychology. Be sure to include the results of at least one study; the results should come directly from a primary source (or the original publication of the study) and not from an article that is reporting about the researchers and their findings. In addition to the study, use at least 2 other scholarly references of your choice. Also include one relevant image (see below for instructions for posting images) and your references. To submit your lecture, simply reply to this discussion board prompt and paste your lecture in the text box before hitting “post reply.”
METHOD 2: Write a 5-7 paragraph case summary from a caregiver, doctor, nurse, or therapist point of view. Be sure to include the results of at least one study; the results should come directly from a primary source (or the original publication of the study) and not from an article that is reporting about the researchers and their findings. In addition to the study, use at least 2 other scholarly references of your choice. Also include one relevant image (see below for instructions for posting images) and your references. To submit your lecture, simply reply to this discussion board prompt and paste your lecture in the text box before hitting “post reply.”
METHOD 3: Create an infographic on the topic (see Canva (Links to an external site.)* for many free, easy templates and instructions or use any other infographic maker website). A great example of an infographic is the one used on the Chapter 14 objectives and tasks page from National Alliance on Mental Illness (Links to an external site.). Be sure to include the results of at least one study; the results should come directly from a primary source (or the original publication of the study) and not from an article that is reporting about the researchers and their findings. In addition to the study, use at least 2 other scholarly references of your choice. Be sure to make your document look appealing with images and provide accurate information using your own words and explanations from scholarly references. And, be sure to include your references. You can be as creative as you’d like! To submit your infographic, simply attach the file to the text box here in the discussion board.
METHOD 4: Create a pamphlet or brochure on the topic. Be sure to include the results of at least one study; the results should come directly from a primary source (or the original publication of the study) and not from an article that is reporting about the researchers and their findings. In addition to the study, use at least 2 other scholarly references of your choice. Microsoft Word is just one example of a program that has a number of pamphlet or brochure templates that you can use. Or, see Canva* for many free, easy templates and instructions (try searching for “brochure template”). Even though you will not be printing and folding your pamphlet, design it as if you are. That means your pamphlet should have a total of 6 panels…three panels on each side. Be sure to make your document look appealing with images and provide accurate information using your own words and explanations from scholarly references. Be sure to include your references, and be as creative as you’d like!
METHOD 5: Create a PowerPoint or Google Slides presentation on the topic using at least 6 slides (not including the title and reference slides). You should include speaker’s notes at the bottom of each slide. Use complete sentences in the speaker’s notes, writing what you would say if you were presenting in person. Check with me if you do not know what speaker’s notes are. Be sure to include the results of at least one study; the results should come directly from a primary source (or the original publication of the study) and not from an article that is reporting about the researchers and their findings. In addition to the study, use at least 2 other scholarly references of your choice. Your last slide should be a list of references used to create the presentation. Be creative! To submit your presentation, simply attach the file to the text box here in the discussion board. In the text box, include the title of your presentation.
Important: If you pick options 3, 4, or 5 your creation should be the equivalent of at least 3 solid paragraphs of writing. Focus on teaching classmates new information on the topic of your choice. And, again, while you can certainly include information you learn from the textbook, your goal is to add to the information that can be found in Chapter 14. This means you should use references in addition to your textbook.

All options require findings from at least one study that is a primary source and at least 2 other scholarly sources.
Be sure to respond to at least two classmates by the time the discussion ends.
In your responses, let your classmates know:
what you found interesting
something new you learned
something specific you liked about their posting
