· Differential diagnosis – Compare and contrast another disorder (ONE) which is similar and how to differentiate it from the disorder you have chosen to research. In what ways is it similar and in what ways is it dissimilar? (How do you tell it apart?) E.g. Major Depression vs Persistent Depressive Disorder (formerly known as Dysthymia). (2pt.)
Must be double spaced (12pt type and Times New Roman)
Must have within text citations. THIS IS A MUST
Articles, the DSM-5, books, and online sources are fine (.org more preferable but .com is fine with discretion). Try to use empirical sources when possible. E.g. Journal of Abnormal Psychology etc.
**Do not use the text book or myself as an instructor as a source.
***Ideally 10 to 12 pages all together including title and reference pages.
NO LESS THAN 8 PAGES FOR YOUR TEXT. YOU CAN EXTEND THE NUMBER OF REF. PAGES IF NECESSARY.
