This activity can help students take an in-depth look at various psychological disorders to better their understanding of the disorder and its treatment options.
Students will form groups of three and research a specific psychological disorder from the perspective of a patient living with the disorder, a doctor treating the patient, and an advocate who is trying to create awareness and understanding for people affected by the disorder. The groups will then present the information to the class.
