Assignment 1: Interview Preparation and Discussion
Refer to the Course Project Overview in Module 1. Early in the course, you have selected a mental disorder to work on for your course project. In Module 3, as part of your course project, you will conduct field research on the practice related to your selected disorder. To gather information for your field research, you will interview a mental health professional to learn about the practice related to the disorder. In this assignment, you will prepare for the interview.
- Write ten interview questions that will bring out the information you need.
- Formulate questions that ensure an appropriate understanding of the disorder. These questions should assist in differentiating the chosen disorder from those found within and outside its parent category.
Ensure that the person you interview has a background in the disorder you are studying.
By Saturday, October 4, 2014, post your questions to the appropriate Discussion Area.
Through Wednesday, October 8, 2014, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses. In your review and comments to your peers, be sure to discuss how your questions and those of your peers may have been similar or different. Discuss how this relates to the disorder you have selected to study.
