1. Group case presentation
Assessment details:

Students will
form groups of 6 people and will be assigned a class/category of disorders.
● Each group will be split into two subgroups to each present a case
study of a person (so two cases for each group)
with a disorder from that category, focusing on the symptom presentation, diagnosis, and etiology
(predisposing, precipitating, and perpetuating factors), and personal coping adopted by the person.
● The other subgroup will all attend and critique the presentation and
discuss questions as in a panel discussion.
● Each subgroup
should submit:
their slides in PPT.
2. (15%) a 15-min video-recording (no fast-motion
please) of their presentation, which
they would play by screen-sharing during class. The recording should
be in English, with the students’ faces shown clearly (video-conferencing is recommended e.g.,
zoom meeting)
3. (5%) a 5-min video with the
other subgroup providing
feedback to the presentation (with 3
slides). The peers are expected to evaluate peers’ presentations by giving constructive criticism in terms of content
and presentation style
(1.5%), providing concrete suggestions for improving the contents (2%), and raising thoughtful questions
and follow-up questions, as appropriate (1.5%).
the signed
consent form of the case study

Select a real-life (non-fictional) case from personal experience (preferred), newspapers, magazines, movies (based
on true stories), and/or other sources

It is not necessary that the
person’s presentation meets the diagnostic criteria, as long as
a significant degree
of distress or impairment is indicated.

For cases of personal experiences/acquaintances, please make sure the person’s identifying information is protected, and the consent form is signed
and submitted. The
goal is to provide the audience with enough details
relevant to your

Should a case be unavailable first-hand, the subgroup may look
for cases from secondary sources. It is highly
important to ensure
that the materials you gather are as raw as possible, so that you are not
just using other people’s analysis, which would drastically reduce the value of the exercise and may
even constitute plagiarism. Adequate references with
news-clips/screen-shots should be included
in the slides.

Please coordinate among your
group members to present divergent cases within the class of disorders, in order to facilitate
the breath of learning collectively.

Presentation includes: source of the case, basic demographics (please
make sure you anonymize
and protect the identity of the person), symptoms and their impact, diagnoses
(if any; and there can be
comorbidities) and differential
diagnoses, etiology (predisposing, precipitating, and perpetuating factors; relevant theoretical models
and concepts to understand the psychopathologies), personal coping
adopted by the person, and some recommended
treatment directions.

Citations and references should be included in APA format in the presentation slides
Important points
to note:
● The presenters are expected to

Demonstrate the ability to make meaningful connections between the
case and the
knowledge and concepts taught in our course

Provide accurate analyses of the diagnosis and symptoms of the disorder

Demonstrate critical thinking in analyzing the case

Provide logical analyses of the etiology of the

Communicate their ideas
to the audience in an engaging and easy-to-understand manner
