Select 1 the following disorders:
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Body Dysmorphic Disorder
- Hoarding Disorder
Focus your discussion of the disorder on the following:
- What are some of the symptoms? What would this disorder look like in person? Make sure you relate this back to the DSM criteria.
- Based on your research, do you think the media has portrayed the disorder you selected in an unbiased manner or is it sensationalized? Support your answer.
In the DSM-IV Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and Trichotillomania were in separate chapters.
- Why do you think the DSM-5 has placed Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and Trichotillomania into a chapter called Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders? Support your answer with research.
You may also research the psychological disorders, by reviewing an electronic version of the DSM-5 in CTU’s library. For more information on accessing the DSM-5 in the library please review How to Access DSM-5 and/or watch this video.
