PSY 215 Schneider: Diagnosis Information (Parts B and E)

Background Information for your Diagnosis and Treatment Plan

Background info vs. articles

When completing Part B of your assignment you will likely end up using a combination of background sources like the ones listed here and journal articles (more info on the Journal Articles tab).  

Remember that journal articles will be reports of specific research that was done on a given diagnosis.  They will not provide overview information about recognizing and treating a diagnosis, they will only include information about the specific issue that was being researched.  

Both background information and journal articles have a role in your assignment but you're sure to get frustrated if you go to the journal literature looking for that background information.
