Select a psychological disorder and a local organization that provides mental health services. Obtain faculty approval of your selected disorder before beginning this assignment. (I have requested permission to use Neurodevelopmental disorder: Autism Spectrum Disorder specifically. I will let you know if this is approved. Also, the town I live in is small so there would not be a facility here that would treat that disorder. So I have requested that I am able to act as if I live in a larger place that has a lot of facilities that treat this disorder.) I will let you know once this is approved. I just wanted to go ahead and get this assignment posted so you have it so you can be thinking about options and considering it.
Research the organization’s website or speak to someone in the organization.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you examine your selected psychological disorder in the context of the chosen organization’s goals. Include the following in your paper:
Identify multiple cultures the organization serves.
Identify symptoms of your selected disorder and describe how the interpretation of the symptoms varies across cultures.
Discuss how the impact of culture affects interpretations of symptoms and recommendations of services for that organization.
Include a minimum of three credible, peer-reviewed references.
