Project #15564 - Abnormal Psychology

PAPER #1: BOOK REACTION

8-9 pages

 

 

The purpose of this assignment is to integrate your learning (based on textbook, discussion, and other supplemental learning materials) with a personal, real-life story of a specific type of mental disorder.

Select a book pertaining to either a mood disorder or a psychotic disorder (a list of possible choices is provided below). Read it along with the related chapter from the textbook. Summarize the key points regarding the person’s experience of a psychological disorder and the impact on his/her life. Compare and contrast the autobiography with the textbook. How was the personal story similar to or different than the text? How did reading the longer personal story enhance your understanding the disorder? What is your personal, inner reaction to the personal story that you read? Critique the presentation of the personal story. For example, what was weak or missing in the personal story? What did you specifically learn from the autobiographical account?
