  • Treatment options (pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic, with rationales for use based on current understanding of the disorder)
  • Diagnostic and research technologies employed in clinical diagnosis, care, and basic science research  

Your research will include two to three peer-reviewed sources that provide evidence-based information regarding the biologic and psychological features of the disorder.
