STEP 2: Find out the following:
Describe the range of complexities typically associated with these co-occurring disorders.
What risk factors may contribute to the development of these co-occurring disorders and what developmental models are used to explain this?
What causal models are used to explain how these co-occurring disorders interact?
What strategies are used for the prevention or early intervention of these co-occurring disorders?
What treatments are commonly used/recommended to manage these co-occurring disorders?
Answer as many of these as you can. There should be some research on each topic but the amount will vary depending on the co-occurring disorders you choose. You may need to answer one or two of these questions by researching more broadly for example the treatment recommended for anxiety disorders is x whilst the treatment recommended for alcohol abuse may include x y or z. If you do this however focus on the information that can be applied to both disorders.
Structure of your essay
Introduction
One to two paragraphs giving a brief overview of the topic you have chosen and what information about this you will address in your essay
Development
A summary of a few key papers that talk about the development of the disorders you are studying either separately or together preferably a combination of both. You do need to include what the research says about how they interact with one another ie using causal and/or developmental models discussed in class.
HINT: more than one model may apply to the co-occurring disorders chosen
Prevention or early intervention
Depending on what the research suggests is most appropriate describe prevention or early intervention strategies that have been suggested to prevent/intervene in the co-occurring disorders you have chosen.
For example some symptoms of depression can emerge whilst a person is alcohol dependent yet not develop into a diagnosable disorder
Treatments and models recommended
Describe the dominant model(s) of treatment or therapy reflected in the research on the co-occurring disorders you have chosen to study.
Conclusion
One or two paragraphs tying together and summing up the information in the essay youve just written covering the above three sections.
