For this assignment, I want you to choose a specific form of psychopathology. You are free to choose any disorder (but do not do anxiety disorder please). Your goal is to write a concise analysis of the disorder using a “transactional-ecological” perspective. What do we know about risk factors associated with the disorder? How might different aspects of the ecology promote the occurrence of the disorder? As the disorder emerges, how might various components of the ecology react? Are there ways in which the environment might respond that could either sustain the disorder or ameliorate it? How do these things affect the overall prognosis? Be sure to focus on ways in which the individual and the environment mutually influence each other.
