Psychiatric disorders | Education homework help


As you have learned this week, diagnosing psychiatric disorders in children has mental health professionals evaluating many factors. Most of this is defined within the DSM5. Yet there can be problems and a misdiagnosis can occur. What effect might misdiagnosis have on children lives?

In addition, some questions of mental wellness may be related to aspects of empathy, sympathy, and morality. How is empathy developed in young children? Why do some have this quality and it seems absent in others? Should we “teach” morality? If so, how is that accomplished? What is the role of parents in developing these very important qualities?

You may be tempted to use personal narrative which is fine to a point. BUT, since this is college you must support your ideas with factual content (reference).
