help me with a case study
The class paper, or written assignment, is a Case Study. To get started:
1. Choose an individual demonstrating a particular disorder. Do write to me using the class messaging system if you are not clear about choosing a topic.
2. Google the topic to see what kind of information is available out there. Again, write me with your questions using the course messaging system please.
3. If there is a famous person you would like to write about or a character from a book or movie, write about them. The written assignment required parts are explained in the syllabus. An example of a completed paper is provided on this homepage. Follow the form of the example, but do not use the content.
4. I have provided notes called “School of Theory” to give you ideas what to write about. If you are not familiar with the concepts listed there, look them up.
If you look at my link on the homepage called Schools of Theory. Notice it names all eight school in a list that is color coded.
The first line for each school gives example of theorists,
The second line provides concepts, the ones who would explain the cause of a disorder.
The third line provides applications, the treatments that would treat a disorder.
