Project #47600 - Psychology #6

 

Provide an in-depth analysis of schizophrenia. You discuss major symptoms of the disorder, as well as ways in which the disorder affects the brain. You analyze the influence of the disorder on the life of affected individuals, and you explore treatments of the disorder, including “alternate” treatments and whether such treatments can be considered ethical. Finally, you reflect on ways in which culture may influence diagnosis and treatment of individuals with the disorder. You compile these elements into a 4- to 6-page paper.

 

Your project paper must include the following:

 

  • Provide a brief summary of major symptoms of schizophrenia
  • Describe the areas of the brain most impacted by this disorder
  • Discuss long-term implications of the disorder and give at least one example of how schizophrenia might affect one’s development or independence in the world
  • Discuss at least three accepted treatments for schizophrenia: one treatment in the psychopharmacology area, one in the behavioral area, and one in the social/support area
  • Evaluate at least one “alternate” treatment for the disorder and explain whether this treatment could be an effective part of a therapeutic plan for a client with schizophrenia
  • Discuss whether the use of an alternate treatment is ethical—provide a rationale for your perspective
  • Reflect on how differences in culture may influence diagnosis and treatment of clients with schizophrenia

 

To prepare for the Final Project:

 

  • Review Chapter 14, “Psychological Disorders.” Focus on Table 14.2, which detailed the general categories of psychopathology.
  • In Chapter 14, review the section entitled, “Classifying Mental Disorders—Problems by the Book.” This section gives an overview of an array of psychological disorders.
  • In Chapter 14, review the section, “Schizophrenia—Shattered Reality,” for a detailed description of the types of this disorder, potential causes, and outcomes.

 

Project is written using APA format.
