Project #21132 - correctional counseling

Assignment: Clinical and personality disorders

Select two disorders, one clinical and one personality, from the DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic Statistical Manual, 4th edition, text revision) and write a paper in which you examine how each disorder may contribute to an offender’s criminality.

Recall that clinical disorders are from Axis I, and personality disorders are from Axis II. Information on clinical and personality disorders can be found in a variety of sources, but it is recommended that you review the actual DSM-IV-TR, if possible.

The Mayo Clinic's website is an excellent resource for further information on various clinical and personality disorders. You can access the site by visiting: http://www.mayoclinic.com/. From any page on the website you can type in a specific clinical or personality disorder in the search box to obtain a list of related articles. Examples include: Mood disorder, anxiety disorder, and borderline personality disorder. You can also just try typing "personality disorder" to see a list of articles on various personality disorders.

Be sure to use each disorder and connect the major symptoms associated with each disorder, as well as the diagnostic criteria for diagnosing someone with the disorder. Then, compare your position and how that particular disorder might contribute to an offender’s criminality. In other words, break down how the symptoms of that disorder relate to a person committing crime. Differentiate any strategies you think would be effective in helping someone overcome each of the disorders you researched.

The paper should be at least 3 pages long. Include both a title page and a reference page (these pages do not count toward the 3 page requirement).

Utilize library and internet resources as needed. Cite any sources used according to APA guidelines both within the body of the paper and on a References page at the end.
