Imagine that you are giving a lecture to an upper-level undergraduate class in abnormal psychology. Your topic is “Explaining the origins of psychopathology.” In your lecture, you will:
- Deliver an overview contrasting different historical views of psychopathology.
- Explain and compare the various perspectives on the etiology of psychopathology.
- Indicate the directions that the study of psychopathology may be taking.
Support your lecture with at least two scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Your lecture should be scholarly, yet engaging. In making your lecture engaging, you may depart from usual writing form and organization by choosing to use anecdotes, humor, or other speaking tools; however, be sure, to cite your sources appropriately in the print version of the lecture you submit.
For grading purposes, submit a transcript of the lecture you would present, along with any visual aids (chart, graph) that you would use to enhance the presentation.
