PSY 280 Week 5 Discussion: Discussion Board 5

Initial post:

Chapter 13: Developmental and Disruptive Behavior Disorders

Please complete the required readings first, then bring in information/research (at least 2 key terms/concepts) from the required readings to answer the questions below:

After reading Chapter 13, you learned about Developmental and Disruptive Behavior Disorders. What may be considered “typical” behavior at one age, may qualify as “disruptive” in later stages of development based on the DSM V criteria. “When you next see a child being disruptive in public, ask yourself what might be causing the child’s misbehavior”, (Kearny and Trull, 2018). Using the content from the required readings:

  • Explain how disruptive behavior disorders differ from typical protest behaviors. How are they different and in which areas do they overlap in certain cases?
  • Define the major symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. What are the subtypes and how does diagnosis differ with the identified gender of the child?
  • Using what you have learned about Disruptive Behavior Disorders, why do you believe there is a higher percentage of diagnosis for children identifying as boys than those who identify as girls?

*Remember to use in-text, and full reference citations in APA format for all content that you bring in from the readings. Your textbook should be your PRIMARY source of information, not an internet search. Feel free to express personal feelings/views/opinions, but also remember to use an academic voice when writing your post and responses. *

Discussion Content

Discussions play an integral role in monitoring your course participation throughout the term. You should check back to the weekly discussions multiple times throughout the week to engage in the discussion with your professor and peers. Participation is only counted during the week in which this discussion is assigned. Be sure to appropriately cite any sources you use to support your responses with standard APA citations. Answer the prompt question(s) thoroughly, using at least 150-200 words, and respond to as many of your peers as possible. Note that responses to 2 of your peers are required for full credit. Be sure to answer any additional questions asked by your professor in the discussion threads. Your initial post is due by Day 3 of the current week, and follow up posts to your peers are due on Day 7!
