I will divide up groups that focus on a certain disorder5-6 people in each group. If there is a disorder you don’t want to work with for personal reasons, let me know.  


  1. Prepare an oral presentation that includes:  

  • Symptoms and what it means for individual to live with. Good if this includes a case study.  

  • shortly explain causes and treatments from two perspectives view point (psychodynamic, humanist, biological, cognitive, behavioural perspectives, social psychology) 

  • The presentation should be 10 min and be presented in a manner that engages the class. The purpose is to teach each other about the disorders.  

This will be presented before the break in class on 17 December
