There is a great deal of new research into the origins, diagnosis, and treatment of various mental and emotional disturbances

"Abnormal Psychology in the News." There is a great deal of new research into the origins, diagnosis, and treatment of various mental and emotional disturbances. The results of these studies are typically published in scientific, peer-reviewed journals. However, the general population generally does not read or have the scientific background to understand these reviews and thus relies on popular media as their source of information.

This assignment requires you to find a recent (published no earlier than January 2017) popular press report (e.g., newspaper, magazine) discussing some form of psychopathology (any of the disorders we've covered in this course, for example, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, alcohol dependency, etc.) and compare it to information found in scientific journals.

Based on this comparison you will determine the accuracy of the news report as well as how the presentation of the news article might influence public knowledge and opinions about mental illness.

The paper should be written in APA style and should be 3 – 5 pages in length (double-spaced, Times New Roman 12pt. font).
