I’m working on a psychology Worksheet and need an explanation to help me understand better.
To demonstrate an understanding of psychological disorders by creating a Flyer.
- Please pick a psychological disorder category from the following options. Create a flyer designed to raise awareness about the disorder you choose among the general population. Please use graphics in your flyer (not just text. Think of what things grab your attention as a starting point). You may not use Powerpoint. A Flyer should be one page. You may not pick the disorder you are using for your final project!!
- You may choose from the following:
- Anxiety disorders
- Mood disorders
- Obsessive compulsive disorders and related disorders
- Dissociative disorders
- Personality disorders
- Eating disorders
- Disorders in childhood
Using your book and Google, research your chosen disorder category. Create a flyer that addresses the following:
- Define the disorder category
- History of the disorder (how it was perceived and explained throughout history)
- Risk factors for the disorder
- Who the disorder impacts most frequently (age, gender, race)
- Recommended treatment and ways to get help (hint- provide resources to a local treatment center/hotline if possible).
- 2 ways to reduce the stigma around this psychological disorder
- Make sure to CITE your sources
