Choose one of the options below to research and explore:

Option 1

Choose one specific dissociative disorder discussed in Chapter 8 to explore. Briefly summarize in one to two sentences the diagnostic criteria for your chosen disorder. Research and present the potential causal factors and possible treatment strategies for the disorder. Why are dissociative disorders difficult to diagnose and treat? What is the role of trauma in the development of dissociative disorders? As a reminder, Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) has distinct symptoms and criteria and is not a personality disorder, which we will explore in Module 6.

Option 2

Briefly summarize in one-two sentences the diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia. There are many well-researched potential genetic and biological causes for schizophrenia. Our text also explores potential psychological and sociocultural factors that may contribute to the disorder. Taking into consideration the diathesis-stress model, and information now available about neurocognitive deficiencies that accompany schizophrenia, explain how research findings regarding psychological and other sociocultural factors can be reconciled with the more widely supported biogenetic approach to causality. How would one be able to tell when an individual is “delusional” versus having non-delusional beliefs that differ from the societal normal? How should cultural and sub-cultural variation be taken into account when assessing psychotic symptoms? What non-medication treatment approaches may be useful in reducing symptoms of Schizophrenia?

Option 3

Choose one specific Somatic Disorder discussed in Chapter 8 (Table 8.2) to explore. Briefly summarize in one to two sentences the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for your chosen disorder. Research and present the potential causal factors and possible treatment strategies for the disorder based upon academic journal research and not a summary of the textbook. Are there risks to attributing physical symptoms to solely psychological causes?
