The Research paper topic is to choose an anxiety disorder that is included in the DSM 5 (see last page of the syllabus). Research papers should include symptoms, basic concepts, genetic factors if applicable, course of the disorder, development of the disorder (such as cognitive, emotional, and behavioral components) and treatment (including pharmacological treatment). 




Included in the paper should explain how your chosen anxiety disorder fits criteria for the anxiety disorder category and how it differs from other disorders within the anxiety classification (hint: use differential diagnosis information). Critical thinking should be evident within the content of paper (in other words, do not provide only straight factual information).   Critical thinking can be provided in applying cognitive theory or other therapeutic orientations to the treatment of the disorder.




  Papers should be between 1,000 and 1,500 words, and should include at least six references and follow APA formatting examples.  Please note that any papers that do not meet the wording criteria within 10%  (i.e., 900 to 1,650) will result in the deduction of an entire letter grade. 



Scholarly sources must be used.  You may use popular sources to support public opinion and perhaps your critical thinking but it must be in addition to 6 scholarly sources. I have attached several scholarly peer reviewed resources.








Prior to engaging in this discussion, please read Chapters 8, 9, and 10 in Applied Metacognition, and review your notes (including those on all articles read in this course about metacognition).  Respond to at least two of your classmates by  Day 5 (Saturday).  Comment on at least one of your classmates’ responses to your initial post by  Day 7 of the week. Be sure to respond to your instructor’s comments to you in this forum by Day 7. 

Reread your posts from the Week One discussions and consider everything you have learned during the past four and a half weeks. Then, apply the knowledge attained from the course to your own development by critically considering the following questions: What did you learn about yourself through the process of learning about learning?What did you learn about your peers in the class through the process of learning about learning? How will you apply what you have learned about yourself in your future learning activities (whether you are the learner or the instructor in these activities)?Describe an event you experienced during the past five weeks in which you noticed learning theory at work.How have your metacognitive experiences in this course influenced your desire to better understand learning in comparison to others?Do you agree or disagree that by applying the elements of metacognition into your studies, you will improve your ability to learn more effectively? Thoroughly explain your reasoning and provide research to support your statements.

Transitioning from elementary into middle school, from middle school into high school, and from high school into postsecondary opportunities represents highly stressful and potentially traumatic times for students. Review the ASCA National Model’s three domains—personal/social, academic, and career. Identify at least three strategies—one from each transitional phase—that you could employ to help students cope with and prepare for these developmental crises. Identify the domain within which each of these strategies fall.


In this assignment, you will define and apply various personality theories to your personal life experiences. The assignment consists of two parts. Be sure to complete both parts.


In psychology, personality theorists have sought to understand the traits and other factors that determine our very nature. Some of these factors are innate, and others seem to be shaped by environmental forces. Each theory takes a different approach to understanding personality. Familiarity with theories of personality will help you to understand and organize behaviors that you observe in others and yourself.


Part I: Apply each of the four personality theories to your personal life experience by answering the following questions.The Five Factor Model of Personality: Explain where you fall on each of the five dimensions or traits in this theory. Discuss whether you feel you were “born with” this trait or if you feel this trait developed through experiences in your environment (such as family experiences or other learning experiences). Based on your experience, explain whether personality traits are primarily biological (innate) or environmental (learned) (Nature vs. Nurture).Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory: Describe how social learning theory played an influence in your own personality development. Identify whose behavior you modeled and provide specific details to describe the ways in which their behavior influenced you.Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: Identify which stage of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs you are currently experiencing. Explain which level you hope to experience in the future.Freudian Theory of Personality Structure: Regarding your own personality functioning, provide an example of how your own Id, Ego, and Superego might all work together to help you meet your needs and have a successful life. Many contemporary psychologists disagree with Freud, and do not believe that the unconscious mind plays an important role in every day behavior. Based on your readings in psychology, as well as your own experiences, do you believe that the unconscious mind is important in everyday life? Why or why not?

Your response should be a 3–4-page Microsoft Word document written in a clear, concise, and organized manner. Be sure to demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA); and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Part II: Psychological Autobiography

In this course, you have applied several theories and concepts from psychology to your own life. In this part, you will re-write the Autobiography submitted in Module 1 using the material you explored throughout the course.In your Psychological Autobiography, describe your life in a way that incorporates 12–15 terms and concepts you learned in this class. You do not need to analyze your struggles in this assignment, or disclose sensitive material. The purpose of the assignment is to simply apply the concepts we explored throughout the course to your own life history in an everyday manner.In your Psychological Autobiography, you may use any terms, research, concepts, or theories covered in class, however, you must use terms and ideas from at least five of the following theorists or perspectives:PiagetEriksonKohlbergEysenckBanduraMaslowFreud

There is room for creativity in this assignment! What is most important is that you show the instructor how much you have learned in this course by applying several theories, terms, or concepts to your life story. At a minimum, you should use information from your lectures and readings in this portion of the paper. This portion of the LASA assignment should be 2–3 pages in length. Here are some suggestions for developing your Psychological Autobiography:Write your life history according to one or more of the developmental stage theories.Apply key concepts to your early development.Explain how the concepts apply to your current life situation.

Prior to completing this journal, please review Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences, watch the Environmental and Genetic Influences on Intelligence  and Multiple Intelligence videos, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. 

For this assignment, you will create a 500-1000 word Journal entry. First, you will reflect on what type of intelligence you feel you embody, according to Gardner’s theory, and why.  Then, take this learning style quiz and report your results within the journal.  How did your perception and the test results differ? How are intelligence and learning style similar, if at all?  If they do not seem to be related, explain why you think that is.  In what ways has either your intelligence type or your learning style benefited you in your development, and in what ways has it held you back?  How can being aware of your intelligence type and learning style relate the value of continued learning by promoting success here in your educational journey at Ashford and in your personal life?

You must cite all of your sources (including the video embedded above) in proper APA style.

Professional counselors must follow legal and ethical guidelines to protect their clients’ or students’ privacy and confidentiality. However, they also need to protect their clients or students from self-harm and harm by others, and they need to protect other people from potentially dangerous clients or students. At times, these duties may limit a client’s or student’s right to confidentiality. State laws contain specific statutes or regulations that mandate when a counselor must break confidentiality to protect clients or students from harm. Schools and agencies will also have specific guidelines and policies that must be followed in such cases.

Create a 250-word scenario for a client or student who is under the age of 18, reflective of the work you will do as a professional counselor that describes the client or student who expresses one of the following: Thoughts of harm to self. Thoughts of harm to another. Disclosure of abuse.

Address all of the following in your case scenario: Include the student’s or client’s age and the setting in which you are working. Describe the specific steps you will take to assess the potential risk to or from your student or client. Discuss the guidelines you will follow to report if a minor has experienced abuse or is in jeopardy of being harmed. Locate the specific laws in your state that address mandated reporting procedures and cite the sections of these laws that would guide your actions. Explain how you will address informed consent and any exceptions to confidentiality with your student or client so that damage to the counseling relationship is minimized. Include specific examples to illustrate your ideas, and support your discussion with references to state laws and regulations, the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics and/or the 2010 ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors, and articles from the professional literature.
