profilepeachewsrenm_17

The 4 assignments are an analysis of the selected neuropsychological disorder-Social Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia. Be sure to use current terminology from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5 (DSM-5). The emphasis of your 4 papers should be on the neuroscience aspects of Social Anxiety Disorder and be formatted according to APA style.

Assignment 1: Neuropsychological Disorder-Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia)

 Must be a minimum of two to three double-spaced pages in length (not including title and reference pages). In your paper, please be sure that the following aspects of your topic are discussed:

• Explain the theories of etiology (causes) with a focus on the neurobiology of the disorder.

• Explain associated factors in development of the disorder (genetic, environmental, familial, lifestyle).

• Describe the pathology of the disorder with an emphasis on the abnormalities of nervous system structure and function, including any genetic and biochemical aspects.

• Give examples of treatment options, including both drug (pharmacological) and non-drug (nonpharmacological treatments), with rationales for use of these treatments based on current understanding of the neurobiology of the disorder.

• Summarize diagnostic and research technologies employed in clinical diagnosis, clinical and behavioral health care, and basic science research.

Research the topic and obtain a minimum of two to three scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources published within the last five years. These sources should provide evidence-based information regarding the biological and psychological features of the disorder, with an emphasis on the neurobiology of your selected topic. 

Assignment 2: Annotated Bibliography

For this assignment, be sure to complete and submit the Annotated Bibliography Template

Complete the following:

• Find at least six to eight scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last five years, including a minimum of two original research studies that discuss Social Anxiety Disorder.

o Plan on using these sources in this assignment, as well as your 3rd assignment and your 4th assignment

 This will allow you to select, read, and summarize your sources to determine how you will use them in your Final Project.

 You may reuse the references you used in completing your 1st assignment. You may use the DSM-5 as one of your resources.

 With the exception of the DSM-5, you may cite and reference course materials such as the textbook, required or recommended reading, or multimedia, but these will not fulfill the source requirement.

o Include a full reference citation in APA format for each resource.

o Summarize each resource in a paragraph (do not copy the article’s abstract—this summary should be in your own words).

o Describe how you plan to use this source in your 3rd assignment.

Assignment 3: Final Project Annotated Outline

This assignment is an analysis of the neuropsychological disorder-social anxiety disorder-that supports your 4th assignment. You will create an outline of the main points of your 4th assignment. The 3rd assignment outline will be organized into three sections, each main section having required components. This outline is both an analysis of social anxiety disorder and a tool to use for the 4th assignment. 

For this assignment you must:

• Complete and submit the attached Final Project Annotated Outline template.

o Use the references you found for the Week 1 assignment and the Week 2 annotated bibliography assignment. You may also use additional references as necessary.

Please note: This assignment should incorporate information from your 1st and 2nd assignment, but it must expand on that information and use the template provided, which is in the format of an annotated outline. 

Assignment 4: Biopsychological Analysis of Social Anxiety Disorder

In your 4th Assignment, you will synthesize an overview of the major theories relating to the pathology of a disorder, as well as provide a detailed discussion of the etiology (causes) and clinical interventions, using research to support your analysis. Expand on the subject content from your previous assignments. Be sure to include all the information covered in the Week 3 outline. In keeping with the focus on the neuroscience aspects of the disorder, to include the following:


• Must be a minimum of 10 to 12 double-spaced pages in length (not including title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style.

• Explain the theories of etiology (causes) of the disorder with a focus on the neurobiology of the disorder.

• Explain associated factors in development of the disorder (genetic, environmental, familial, lifestyle).

• Describe the pathology of the disorder with an emphasis on the abnormalities of nervous system structure and function (brain structures, neural pathways, neurotransmitter/receptor systems), including any genetic and biochemical aspects.

• Give examples of treatment options including both drug (pharmacological) and non-drug (pharmacological treatments), with rationales for use of these treatments based on current understanding of the neurobiology of the disorder.

• Summarize diagnostic and research technologies employed in clinical diagnosis, clinical and behavioral health care, and basic science research.

Your research will include the references you identified in your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd assignments, with additional references as needed. Your references should include a minimum of six to eight peer-reviewed and/or scholarly sources, which provide evidence-based information regarding the biological and psychological features of the disorder and were published within the last five years. At least four of your references should be peer-reviewed publications of original research studies. To justify your assertions, provide in-text citations for all factual statements taken from your research, with corresponding references drawn from scholarly sources. All citations and sources are to be documented according to APA style and should support and enhance your analysis of social anxiety disorder. Sources may include review articles, original research articles, information from governmental agencies (e.g., National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, Drug Enforcement Administration) and/or professional societies (e.g., professional society position papers or clinical practice guidelines). With the exception of the DSM-5, you may cite and reference course materials such as the textbook, required or recommended reading, or multimedia, but these will not fulfill the source requirement.
