Product Description

Focus of the Final Project

For your Final Project, you will use the psychological disorder that was selected and approved by the instructor in Week One. In your project, you will provide an overview of the major biopsychological theories of the disorder as well as a detailed discussion of the biopsychological causes and treatment approaches for the disorder. The Final Project must utilize peer-reviewed sources, published within the last five years, and cited according to APA guidelines, to support and enhance your analysis of the selected disorder. In addition to the general overview of biopsychological causes and available treatment approaches, locate two to three published research studies that support a discussion of possible, effective biopsychological approaches to treatment and incorporate the biopsychological cause of the disorder.

Paper Components:

Introduction

This section should provide a general introduction to the psychological disorder you have selected that includes the focus of your critique, as well as an overview of the background and history of the disorder. Additionally, it should provide demographic data that indicates the prevalence of the disorder in both general and specific populations. Finally, this section should clearly indicate the direction that the critique will take.

For example, there are many biopsychological theories of alcoholism. In this section you would express your intent to focus on the role of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) in alcoholism. There should then be research on the role of GABA and GABAergic pathways in the development of this disorder. This is not to say that your paper must focus on only one biopsychological cause or system, but you should indicate your areas of focus in the introduction.

Discussion

In this section you will present a detailed discussion of the biopsychological etiology and treatment for the disorder you chose. Indicate if this disorder appears to be genetic in nature or due to factors in the environment. When discussing the biopsychological causes of this disorder, be specific. Your discussion should refer not only to specific systems (such as the GABA, noted previously) but also to the pathways in the brain that are believed to be involved. This section must utilize current, published research studies to support your discussion. This section should be the majority of your Final Project.

Conclusion

Provide a concluding summary of your findings regarding your selected disorder. Additionally, address the possible future research directions that could be taken to further examine the role of biopsychology in the expression and treatment of this disorder.

The Final Project should contain a minimum of eight to ten double-spaced pages (excluding title and reference pages) and must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. You must include a minimum of six to eight peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last five years, and at least two to three of these must be published research studies.
