Question description

You will write a paper on a chosen DSM-5 category topic approved by your instructor.(Personality Disorder) The content of your paper must address the following:
1. A succinct overview of the disorders in this DSM-5 category (do not copy and paste from the DSM-5—this information must be evaluated and reworded into your own words)
2. Potential causes of these disorders (think nature and nurture both in this section: genetics, heredity, environment, and spiritual)
3. What processes would be used to evaluate for disorders in this category
4. Treatment options for these disorders
5. A biblical worldview of these disorders and their treatment
6. Future research considerations for disorders in this category

The paper must be 12–14 pages (not including the title page, abstract, or reference pages). The quality of the paper must reflect the level of graduate work. Avoid having too many quotes and integrate your research (i.e., sources) in your paper. A good graduate paper must not be like a quilt, but like a rug: not patched together, but woven together. While structure is important, content is more significant. However, writing your paper without subheadings or not correctly referencing your sources is never acceptable. For example, stating something such as, "research has shown that…," without documenting the source will lower your grade. Papers MUST BE written in current APA format; check your APA writing carefully because you will be graded on the accuracy of APA format. The APA Publication Manual provides information on how to write (e.g., grammar), how to format a paper (e.g., title page, abstract, headings), how to cite references, and many other helps. Use the table of contents to help you locate things. Additionally, be sure to examine the research and topic from a biblical worldview, demonstrating critical thinking. You may also need to use the following reference materials to support your point of view—biblical word studies and biblical commentaries.

To validate the information included in your paper, use articles published in professional peer-reviewed (scholarly) journals. Please limit your use of general textbooks to a maximum of 2. Websites should be avoided as many of these are not scholarly. If you are unsure- check with your professor.
