For this assignment, you will explore research and theories from your book that are considered to be significant in shaping our thinking and understanding of psychological disorders. You will research your topic and create an infographic highlighting the key ideas and most important or interesting information.
Imagine the Infographic will be used in an initiative to help educate students about psychological disorders on campus.
You must use two scholarly sources and cite those sources in APA format directly on the infographic.
You will use Canva.com (Links to an external site.) to create a free account and construct the infographic. Canva provides free tools and you may upload images and information into Canva – so there is no need to spend money when completing this assignment on anything supplemental. If you are skilled in desktop publishing use one page and make it intricate, if you are new to this or this is not your strength, than use several pages and use a simpler design.
Make sure your infographic reflects accurate and clear information about your topic. An infographic uses sparse text, visual organization and images to give a general overview of a topic. Your audience is a student who is not familiar with this theory or research. The infographic should be submitted as a jpeg or pdf.
Your topic choices are all discussed in Chapter 15. Choose one specific disorder from the following categories of psychological disorders:
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
