The focus of this paper is on researching a specific mental disorder in the DSM-5. The paper should include the following: a. Identify the disorder you selected from the DSM-5 and describe it in detail. This should include a description of the diagnostic criteria as set forth in the DSM-5 (do not just copy and paste the criteria, this needs to be presented in your own words), typical course of the disorder, prevalence rates, and differential diagnosis. b. Discuss the treatment that is recommended for the disorder. This should include a detailed description of empirically supported psychotherapy treatments and psychotropic medication. You need to describe the treatment in detail and discuss studies that provide evidence the treatment is effective with those who have the disorder. ******These references should be from peer-reviewed articles in reputable psychological journals.
