Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

believe Complex PTSD is a viable diagnosis, it is not yet in the DSM-5 and
cannot be used for this project.

Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder
Dissociative Identity Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder
Substance Use Disorder (choose a specific
substance such as opioids, meth, etc.)
Anorexia Nervosa
Students will write a
4 to 5-page research-based paper in current APA format that focuses on a DSM-5
diagnosis. More is fine, less than 4 pages results in a point deduction. Papers
less than three pages will not be graded.
Using the approved
articles from your Annotated Bibliography address the questions below. If your
articles were not approved, you will need to locate new articles of the correct
source type. You do not need to submit a new ABIB.
DSM-5 (not 4!)
criteria for the diagnosis (use “5” not “V” as the Roman numeral is no
longer used) (Do not use the DSM or your textbook. Find this in one of
your articles.)
What are the symptoms/triggers?
What do they look like?
Is it common (i.e. many people
experience it) or is it rare? (What groups are more likely to be diagnosed
with this disorder?)
What is the etiology? Is this
biological, environmental, or both? What are potential genetic influences?
What are treatments (NOT
medication—psychologists can only prescribe in five states, so do not
discuss medication or you will get a zero for the treatment portion.) Look
for CBT, EFT, etc. These are broad categories and have specific
techniques, so you will want to discuss and describe specific techniques
that are used.
What life disruption occurs as
a result of the symptoms of this mental illness? Address all areas (family,
relationships, work, social interactions with strangers, functioning
What is the prognosis if
untreated versus treated effectively? In other words, if left unchecked
how will symptoms impact one’s future work/relationships/life? What are
the worst-case and best-case scenarios? If treated, will the person need a
lifetime of maintenance care? (You may refer to medication generally in
this section, such as “will need antipsychotic medication and a life-long
series of doctor’s assessments to monitor for side effects” but this
section needs to be very specific and refer back to life disruption
The page length does
not include the title page, abstract page, or references page. The
4 to 5 pages must be the writing/body portion of the paper.
This is an academic
research paper. This paper is
not about your personal opinions, rather it is an article review that discusses
the research articles you have located. This is NOT an essay; it requires
constant in text citation. It is an APA-formatted research paper using APA
7th edition. It must be an informative
paper, meaning that for full credit your topic discussion must demonstrate
understanding of the researched articles.
For example, it is
great if you want to discuss a case study about Generalized Anxiety Disorder
(GAD) and that particular individual’s situation, but 99% of your paper should
focus on the various aspects of GAD (etiology, symptom manifestation,
treatment, and prognosis).
You must cite
peer-reviewed sources in support of the information that you discuss.
A minimum of eight peer-reviewed journal articles from
2017-2022 located in WTCC’s online database should be cited and referenced for
this paper (although you are encouraged to use as many more as you would like).
No other sources may be used. No books or web sites of any kind may be used.
NOTE: Cite only the
authors of your articles, do not cite who they cite. If the authors give
incorrect information and you have cited them, this will allow me the chance to
see why you have incorrect information, which makes a difference when papers
are graded.
Here is the quick
1. Your
paper must be 4 to 5 pages; your title page, abstract, and reference page are
not part of that page count. For each quarter page under four pages, a
five-point deduction will be taken. Papers less than 3 pages will not be
graded. Longer than five pages is fine, less than four creates deductions.
2. Do
not use quotes. Paraphrase and cite only. Cite constantly. I should see in
text citations every two or three sentences (yes, even if it the same article
being used). If you give a facts or discuss a definition there should be a
citation since this paper is based on the research articles you have located,
not on your prior knowledge. Any paragraph that does not have citations at
least twice will not be graded. Remember that a citation is used with
paraphrasing to demonstrate from whence the information was derived (i.e. this
information comes from a certain article.) Even if the same article is used
throughout that paragraph, you cite twice so that the reader knows that all of
the discussion is research-based. Per the rubric five points will be
deducted for each quote, so put the information into your own words.
3. Read
your paper out loud and check your wording. Personal pronouns (he,
she, they, their, his, her, them, I, my, we, our, mine, etc.) and contractions
count as grammar errors. I will post an example of how to rewrite without
personal pronouns.
4. Only
peer-reviewed/scholarly academic journal articles from WTCC’s library database
from the last five years may be used. No other source types (textbook,
books, web sites, etc.) may be used. If I already approved your ABIB you may
use those articles.
5. The
paper should also include a cover page, abstract, and reference page. The
paper must include an introduction and a conclusion in addition to the written
portion. With the reference page, you may partially reuse your ABIB if the
reference format was correct, but remove the summaries first. If
you leave the summaries, you will lose format points.
6. Failure
to use APA 7 format will result in an automatic 10-point deduction prior to
rubric grading. A single APA error will only be a 2 pt deduction, so
do not panic if you miss a space error, etc.
No emailed papers or late papers are accepted under any circumstances. Although the portal says you may submit up to
11:59p.m. often students find themselves unable to upload at the last minute,
so plan on submitting a day or two prior. If the time stamp is midnight it is a
zero, so start early. I personally recommend submitting your
“finished” draft as soon as you can and then, if you choose to edit
it further, can submit an updated draft before the due date/time. This will
help in case something goes wrong and you are unable to submit on the due date.
Missing a few points due to a few grammar errors is still better than a zero
from missing the paper!
8. Only Word
documents (.doc or .docx) will be graded. If you copy/paste your paper into the text box, or if you
upload the wrong file type, it results in an automatic zero. You may submit up
to four times, so if you catch an error you are encouraged to submit an
updated/corrected version. I will only grade the last version you upload, so do
not worry if there is some issue in an earlier version. If you are using a Mac
and need to convert your paper, please contact WTCC’s IT group for help. If I
cannot open your file, it is a zero.
