Assignment 2: Course Project Part I: Interview and Background Research

Refer to the Course Project Overview. Early in the course, you selected a specific disorder. Research it using your textbook and Argosy University online library resources. A minimum of 5 sources in addition to your textbook should be used. At least three of those sources should be peer-reviewed journal articles. The remaining 2 sources may be books, journal articles, or reputable web sites (like those from professional organizations or governmental agencies, not Wikipedia or similar sites).

Review the rubric, as it provides detailed instructions on how best to succeed on this assignment. In the rubric, you will find that you need to address the following in a paper:

· Description of the selected disorder (Identify the DSM diagnostic category for the disorder and distinguish between diagnostic and commonly used terminology.)

· Causative factors of the disorder

· Diagnosis of the disorder

· Treatment of the disorder

· Survey of current research on the disorder

Write a 4–5-page paper in Word format. Remember to use the rubric as you write your paper. Apply APA standards to citation of sources, and include an APA style  title/cover page and reference page. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M3_A2.doc.

By the due date assigned, post your assignment to the Submissions Area.

Working ahead using the feedback provided to you by your peers and instructors, finalize your interview questions and conduct the interview with a mental health professional in preparation for the paper due in Module 5.
