1. COLLAPSE Three facts that I learned about the brain that I did not know befor

1. COLLAPSE
Three facts that I learned about the brain that I did not know before are that the brain weighs 3 pounds, the brain can be divided into three basic units: forebrain, midbrain, and the hindbrain. Also, I had no idea that a cell called a neuron serves as the fundamental functional unit. Neuronal signals that flow through them produce all feelings, movements, thoughts, memories, and experiences. The cell body, dendrites, and axon are the three components that make up a neuron.  
Your brain is the source of all your characteristics, uniqueness, and skills. Understanding the brain’s functioning will enable us to comprehend the principles behind human behavior and activity. All healthy human brains share the same fundamental structures and functions, despite each being unique.  
If I could choose any nervous system disorder to study, it would be Carpal Tunnel Syndrome why? because I have it. Three facts about this syndrome are that it occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. It is also often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself. Women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.    
2. COLLAPSE
Three things I learned about the brain while studying this unit are that the brain weighs only 3 pounds and is surrounded by a fluid called cerebrospinal fluid; this fluid also surrounds a person’s spinal cord. A person’s brain is not fully developed until they are 25 years old and information in their brain travels up to 268 miles per hour. These three facts are things about the brain that I did not know until now, and I find them very interesting. Another thing that I found interesting is that sleep is as essential for the brain as food and water are to the rest of our bodies and well-being. Sleep deprivation can increase the build-up of protein in our brains which is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. 
The brain controls a person’s nervous system, which, unfortunately, can have many different disorders. I find the most interesting disorder, and the one I would like to study is Alzheimer’s disease. Over 3 million cases of this disease affect people in the United States alone every year. It is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other mental functions. Memory loss and confusion are the two main symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease; sadly, no cure exists. This disease interests me the most because I have watched several family members suffer from it, and it is one of the saddest things I have ever witnessed. I could not imagine losing all memory of my loved ones, especially my children and grandchildren. I hope and pray that a cure will be found at some point in the future, and nobody will ever have to suffer like that again.

  For this assignment, students will investigate and propose a psychiatric diagn

 
For this assignment, students will investigate and propose a psychiatric diagnosis based on the case study from the Gorenstein and Comer (2015) textbook Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology, chosen in the Week One “Initial Call” discussion or the Week Two “Initial Assessment” discussion. This paper will include an in-depth overview of the disorder(s) within the diagnosis, treatment options for the diagnosis, and a sound rationale that explains why this diagnosis was made. Note that the diagnosis may include more than one psychiatric disorder.
The paper must present a thorough overview of each disorder within the diagnosis. Assume the audience has no prior knowledge of the disorder(s) within the diagnosis, and provide relevant and easy to understand explanations of each for the readers. When writing the paper, it is critical to convey all the necessary information in a straightforward manner using non-technical language. (Reference the Professional Voice and Writing Links to an external site.resource provided by the Writing Center for assistance.) Support the analysis with at least five peer-reviewed sources published within the last ten years in addition to the course text.
The Psychiatric Diagnosis topical paper must include the following:
Explain psychological concepts in the patient’s presentation using professional terminology. Identify symptoms and behaviors exhibited by the patient in the chosen case study.
Match the identified symptoms to potential disorders in the DSM-5 diagnostic manual.
Propose a diagnosis based on the patient’s symptoms and the criteria listed for the disorder(s) in the DSM-5 diagnostic manual.
Analyze and explain how the patient meets criteria for the disorder(s) according to the patient’s symptoms and the criteria outlined in the DSM-5 diagnostic manual.
Justify the use of the chosen DSM-5 diagnostic manual (i.e., What evidence supports the validity of this manual? What are limitations of this manual?).
Summarize general views of the diagnosis from at least three theoretical orientations (g., cognitive, behavioral, humanistic, biological, sociocultural, evolutionary, psychoanalytic, integrative, etc.). NOTE: Be clear that you are writing about theoretical orientations and using the theoretical orientations to explain the diagnosis. Do not use the theoretical orientations to discuss any therapy or treatment approaches. Your application of the theoretical orientations should answer the question: What causes this diagnosis? For example, “Based on the cognitive perspective, what causes this diagnosis?” “Based on the humanisitic perspective, what causes this diagnosis?” Etc. In addition, you may include a historical perspective on the diagnosis, but this is not required. Also note that here you are summarizing views of the overall diagnosis, not specific individual symptoms.
Include a discussion on comorbidity if the diagnosis includes more than one disorder.
Evaluate symptoms within the context of an appropriate theoretical orientation for this diagnosis (e.g., cognitive, behavioral, humanistic, biological, sociocultural, evolutionary, psychoanalytic, integrative, etc.).  NOTE: Here you are evaluating specific symptoms, not the overall diagnosis.
Use at least two peer-reviewed articles to assess the validity of this diagnosis, and describe which demographics are at a higher risk of developing the disorder or receiving the diagnosis based on age, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. Provide a brief evaluation of the scientific merit of these peer-reviewed sources in the validity assessment.
Summarize the risk factors (i.e., biological, psychological, environmental, and/or social) for the diagnosi If one of the categories is not relevant, address this within the summary.
Compare evidence-based and non-evidence-based treatment options for the diagnosi
Evaluate well-established treatments for the diagnosis, and describe the likelihood of success or possible outcomes for each treatment.
Create an annotated bibliography of five peer-reviewed references published within the last ten years to inform the diagnosis and treatment recommendati In the annotated bibliography, write a two- to three- sentence evaluation of the scientific merit of each of these references. For additional assistance with this portion of the assignment, access the Writing Center’s Sample Annotated Bibliography.Links to an external site.

 Discussion- HIV & Communication Skills
 Discussion Topic
For this discussion, read the below scenario and answer the following questions:
Scenario:
 Leon is an African American community activist in one of this country’s largest cities. His role has made him very visible and the public watches his every move. When Leon was diagnosed with HIV three months ago he became overwhelmed with thoughts of people in the community finding out and discriminating against him publicly, so he moved to a small rural farming community where his mother lives. Leon felt very depressed and isolated from his life in the big city, so his mother suggested that he visit a peer educator at their local hospital. Reluctantly, Leon agreed and scheduled an appointment. When Leon arrived at his session he was greeted by his peer educator, a short, bald, overweight, older white male. Leon gasped as he followed the peer educator to the private meeting room. 
Discussion Questions: 
How might the Peer Educator address cultural barriers?
How might the Peer Educator address disclosure issues?
What services might the Peer Educator suggest?
At least 250 words. APA Format
