Understanding Psychological Disorders

Process

familytherapist.jpg

I've gathered links to websites that provide good basic information on the most prominent psychological disorders. These sites won't make you an expert but they will provide the grounding for a good understanding of the conditions.

 

Task 1: Choose 4 of the disorders and create index cards with their general information. If the disorder comes from a group, be sure to identify what group the disorder comes from.

The index template is available in the first attachment file.

 

Task 2: The second attachment contains a test covering information from all the disorders. Choose 3 of the questions and answer them.

 

I'm pleased to see some interest in this webquest.

If you make the effort of following the tasks on this page, I would be happy to see your work. Please attach your completed work and send it to me at flytheneck@hotmail.com. I will evaluate it and return a comment if you wish.
