Psychology – Psychological Disorder Webquest

I’ve gathered links to websites that provide good basic information on the most prominent psychological disorders. These sites won’t make you an expert but they will provide the grounding for a good understanding of the conditions.

 Task 1: Choose 4 of the disorders and create index cards with their general information. If the disorder comes from a group, be sure to identify what group the disorder comes from.

Task 2: The second attachment contains a test covering information from all the disorders. Choose 3 of the questions and answer them.
