DSM-5 Summaries Instructions

First, you will need to choose 5 of the following DSM-5 categories that you are interested in and desire to learn more about. Keep in mind that this will help you narrow down which category you want to base your Research Paper on for this course.

The categories you can choose from are:

·         Neurodevelopmental Disorders

·         Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders

·         Bipolar and Related Disorders

·         Depressive Disorders

·         Anxiety Disorders

·         Obsessive-compulsive and Related Disorders

·         Trauma- and Stressor-related Disorders

·         Dissociative Disorders

·         Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders

·         Feeding and Eating Disorders

·         Elimination Disorders

·         Sleep-Wake Disorders

·         Sexual Dysfunctions

·         Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Related Disorders

·         Substance-related and Addictive Disorders

·         Neurocognitive Disorders

·         Personality Disorders

·         Paraphilic Disorders

 

Next, provide a 100–150-word summary for each of the 5 categories you chose (after reviewing these categories in the DSM-5), giving a brief overview and the disorders within this category. Include a title page in current APA format. Also, include a reference page in current APA format that cites the DSM manual. This assignment will be graded for grammar and quality of writing. You must include a running head and page numbers. See the DSM-5 Summaries Grading Rubric for more information on points.
