Depression and anxiety disorders
Discussions are fundamental to shared learning, so please be sure to participate early and often!
After you have completed the Reading, and without reviewing your classmate’s responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 200–250 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.
After you have submitted your initial post, take time to review your classmates’ responses and to respond specifically and substantially to at least two of them. Refer to the Discussion Rubric in your Syllabus for specific grading explanation.
In your reading this week, you learned about several different theories and techniques used to help people struggling with psychological disorders. Complaints of depression and anxiety are very common among adults seeking help these days (Dunlop, Scheinberg, & Dunlop, 2013). Use the knowledge you have gained in this unit to consider ways that these therapies can be used to help people.
