For the Week 3 discussion on parent guides, we are going to handle it differently than the instructions indicate. You will not be assigned to a group.
Construct a tri-fold brochure, two-page pamphlet, or a short power-point presentation on the topic of your choice. Focus more on the idea that this is meant for parents. Remember that lay materials are usually at the 6th-8th grade reading level. Instead of academic references, include some links that are appropriate for parents. Respond to one other colleague and give them feedback on their product.
Thanks for your patience in this very challenging situation. I appreciate that you are adult learners and will be counting on you to function at a higher level with less feedback than usual due to the numbers of students in all psych courses.
Collaboration is essential to accurate diagnosis of the conditions under consideration in this week. For this week’s Discussion, you practice collaboration by working in a group on developing a “Parent Guide,” which will serve as a teaching tool for parents with children who have been diagnosed with a specific mental health disorder.
It is recommended that you make your project as attractive as possible and consider using the finished product as teaching tools for families that you will work with in your own practices.
