review diagnostic categories and select a specific mental illness/psychological disorder to research and apply to the sport psychology setting.

This course project provides you with the opportunity to develop an expanded knowledge base regarding a specific mental illness/psychological disorder and increase your expertise in diagnostic skill.
For this module, review diagnostic categories and select a specific mental illness/psychological disorder to research and apply to the sport psychology setting.
Spend some time reviewing the DSM and Abnormal psychology text to skim through the diagnostic categories for a specific mental illness/psychological disorder that interests you. You are encouraged to choose a mental illness/psychological disorder that you want to learn more about rather than one you are very familiar with. To synthesize and integrate your learning in a more comprehensive manner, you may want to consider a selection that is based on your professional or personal experiences so that it is personally meaningful to you.
Next, write a brief description (250–300 words) of the mental illness/psychological disorder that you have chosen to study in Microsoft Word document format.
Provide rationales for choosing the mental illness/psychological disorder.
