With graduation on the near horizon, Jamal is excited about completing his psychology degree. He is anticipating a highlight of his academic journey; the Psychology Department has asked Jamal and a few of his peers to engage in a panel presentation that will spotlight their knowledge on a topic relevant to abnormal psychology. Jamal is honored to have been asked to participate in the presentation and hopes to use this opportunity to add some valuable artifacts to his career ePortfolio.
As Jamal prepares the content of his presentation, he considers the role of research and practice in mental health. Likewise, Jamal considers the various biomedical and psychological approaches to treating psychological disorders, including the ethical factors that impact treatment. In addition, he considers the ways in which social support can promote education and awareness about psychological disorders. Lastly, Jamal considers the many ways in which we can enhance compassion and empathy for people who struggle with psychological disorders and perhaps help to humanize (and normalize) aspects of abnormal behavior.
For this project, you will be presenting along with Jamal and must create a presentation that includes speaker notes. Your Module Five Milestone, along with your reading assignments, will support you in developing your speaker notes.
