Your research paper should include the following headings: (a) Causes, (b) Prevalence, (c) Differentiating Criteria, (d) Progression of the Disorder, (e) Developmental and cultural considerations, (f) Assessment Process and (g) Treatment Considerations. You will note that these headings are aligned with each of the required discussion items above.
include a title page and at least six bibliographic references from peer-reviewed/refereed journals, in addition to the course texts. References from general websites (e.g. WebMD, Wikipedia and the like) are not acceptable references and should be avoided.
In addition to the title page your paper should include a reference page, both in correct APA format. References should be cited throughout your paper in correct APA format.
