I’m working on a psychology project and need an explanation to help me learn.
STEP 1: Pick one of the disorders you read about in this module and learn more about it in order to make a “At-a-Glance” page with details about the disorder. Visit the National Institute of Mental Health and search for the disorder, read through the information, then scroll to the section on “Research and Statistics” or “Journal Articles or Reports” to find helpful links to outside information. Look elsewhere as well for details about the prevalence, signs, symptoms, details, and research related to the disorder. Keep track of all of your sources as you investigate.
STEP 2: In a format of your choosing (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Canva, Infogr.am, Photoshop, Google Doc, etc.), create a 1 page visual that includes the following information about the disorder:
- Causes and Risk Factors
- Recent Research (referencing at least 2 research articles)
- Either as a footnote on the same page, or on a separate page, include the citations in APA format
STEP 3: Create a simple, yet visually interesting “At-a-Glance” page with information about the order. Although not required, we recommend adding a Creative Commons license (Links to an external site.) to your completed work and uploading it to either Flickr (Links to an external site.) or Wikimedia Commons (Links to an external site.) so that other psychology instructors and students can use your work.
