This is an Abnormal psychology class for reference and the following are the questions needed to be answered in the discussion post:
1.Briefly summarize in one-two sentences the diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia.
2. There are many well-researched potential genetic and biological causes for schizophrenia.
3. Our text also explores potential psychological and sociocultural factors that may contribute to the disorder. Taking into consideration the diathesis-stress model, and information now available about neurocognitive deficiencies that accompany schizophrenia, explain how research findings regarding psychological and other sociocultural factors can be reconciled with the more widely supported biogenetic approach to causality.
4. How would one be able to tell when an individual is “delusional” versus having non-delusional beliefs that differ from the societal normal?
5. How should cultural and sub-cultural variation be taken into account when assessing psychotic symptoms?
6. What non-medication treatment approaches may be useful in reducing symptoms of Schizophrenia?
7. After completing your initial post for this Module, what questions do you still have in relation to your topic or the information covered in the Module in general?
The following is the Professor’s Checklist to get the Maximum Points:
1. Initial post is a minimum of 600 words (not including references) and demonstrates complete
comprehension and clear evaluation of the material referenced in the question.
2. Initial post references and cites three scholarly sources such as those accessed through EBSCO,
PubMed or Google Scholar, using in-text citations and reference page with one reference being the
class book which I will attach to attachments, and two of which must come from a peer-reviewed
scholarly journal article, using correct APA 7th edition.
3. The Professor also has us attach a copy of our discussion to an assignment tab that checks for
plagiarism, so please make sure everything is written properly with the in-text citations and references.
3. Lastly, there is a grading discussion rubic that the Professor uses to grade the post. I will attach this
to the attachments as well, so please look at it when done with writing post to make sure everything is
in it that the Professor is looking for. Thanks.
