Your paper should include factors such as diagnostic criteria, history and prevalence of the disorder and treatment. To make this paper more meaningful, choose a topic that is personal foryou. For example, if you have a child or relative with a disorder, this will provide a great opportunity to learn more about it. If you wish, you may also do a Case Study as a part of your paper.
