Hello there,Phew, right on time with everything. Took a little bit more because I wanted you to have in-text citations for everything that was written. I am attaching to this message a Microsoft Office Word(.docx format) file entitled "Final Eating and Sleeping Disorder Worksheet" which contains your completed worksheetThe pathologies chosen were the following:Eating disorder: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Pica DisorderSleep-Waking disorder: Hypersomnia, Insomnia, and Narcolepsy.The last page consists of references and you also have in-text citations. Every reference used is either a psychology manual ( as it is the case of the DMS V edition which was used for all the diagnostic criterions ) or peer review articles. Please take a look and tell me if you need any changes. Far as I can see, this is what you needed.
