Question Description

I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Please pick a psychological disorder category from the following options. Create a 1-2 page flyer (NOT a PowerPoint) 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 cannot pick the same disorder you are using for your final project (you will not receive credit if you do this).

You may choose from the following: 

  • Anxiety disorders

Mood disorders

  • Obsessive compulsive disorders and related disorders

Schizophrenia   

  • 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) and how the disorder is perceived now in the United States
  • 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).
