PSY 3360 Psychological Disorders

PSY 3360 Assignment

For this course, you'll be completing a few assignments*, where you'll need to track down scholarly research on a specific psychological disorder.

This guide will provide a starting place for looking for reference sources (such as encyclopedias and handbooks), books, and peer-reviewed journal articles that will provide useful evidence for your paper/presentation.

Do some initial searching on your own, and then contact me with your questions. I'm happy to schedule a consultation with you to discuss your specific topic.

*Check your syllabus for more details about your assignments.
