Prompt:

According to your text, a “psychological disorder is a condition characterized by abnormal thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that cause distress or significant impairment in functioning”.  Think about a person you are familiar with in the media (celebrity) and using their behavior, diagnose them with a psychological disorder from chapter 15.  In a two page essay, using APA guidelines, present your celebrity and diagnose their disorder using examples of their problem behaviors and mental processes. Also, suggest a form of therapy that would help them improve their life.

APA: 

Most of you are not familiar with APA format. Although we will not cover all the requirements for an APA paper there are a few things that I would like you to focus on such as (1 inch margins, 12 point Times New Roman font, double-spacing everything, left alignment, use name as header in the top- right corner , nothing in bold, no contractions, no informal language, references list, correct grammar and spelling).  Please see the rubric provided for more details on how you will be graded.

If you still questions about APA formatting especially for citations here is an  (APA style guide) that I prefer you  use.

Resources:

There are also library reference/research assistance services provided by SAC’s Nealley Library for you if you would like assistance locating any outside research materials needed for your paper.

For those of you that  may be new to using Turnitin I recommend using the guide within SAC’s Canvas Student Training.
