Below I have provided topics that are current issues in abnormal psychology. You will choose one to address. These topics are presented in the form of a question as you will be choosing to represent either the "pro" OR the "con" side of the debate. 1. Is appropriate care possible for mental health issues and/or disorders through cyber-therapy, tele-therapy, and/or apps? 2. Is forced treatment of Seriously Mentally Ill individuals justifiable? 3. Is social media helping to de-stigmatize mental health or causing further detriment and leading to other sub-features related to exhibitionist behaviors? 4. Should psychedelics (like MDMA and LSD) be used for therapeutic use? Your goals in the debate will be to: Demonstrate understanding of the emerging issue and relevant research findings Display critical thinking skills, while demonstrating an understanding of the emerging issue that enables you to present your side in a rational manner. Identify at least two critical dilemmas and/or points related to the issue (e.g., ethics, socio-cultural norms) Defend your position with compelling arguments and predictions for future trends Select and apply relevant theoretical discussion, empirical data, and practical evidence from professional, scholarly journals. Format: A page length is not set for this assignment. The emphasis is on clear, critical analysis. Historically, strong, well-developed papers average around 1-2 pages of text, before adding title page and references page. Structure your paper utilizing APA style (7th Edition); this includes title page, headings, in-text citations, reference page, and general paper format (1-inch margins, double-spaced, appropriately sized sans serif or serif fonts - e.g., 12 Times Roman). An abstract is not required. Accurately use APA style citations and references. Use in-text citations within your assignment and a reference list at the end. Text from outside sources either needs to be fully paraphrased in your own writing style (not just a few words changed) or needs quotation marks, even if cited. Apply sound writing mechanics: write with clarity, paying attention to spelling, grammar, and syntax. Submit to your Assignment Folder as a single document in either Microsoft Word, PDF, or RTF format.
