    Write a brief, but thorough definition for each of the following terms.

    PY4310- Abnormal Psychology

    INSTRUCTIONS: Write a brief, but thorough definition for each of the following terms. Most, or all of the terms can be defined using your textbook (check the index first) and DSM. Be sure to cite where you get your information. You are free to use internet sources, but be sure they are professional sources and will give you the correct definition (again, cite the source). You may also be able to find many of these answers in your Mind-Tap access if you have that. The definitions will be graded for completeness and accuracy, but need not be lengthy. After you complete the sheet, submit it in the courseroom in the appropriate place as a Word attachment, before the deadline. Include your name in the file when you save it such as “definition assignment fred smith.docx”. You will want to keep a copy handy for your reference throughout the course as you encounter various terms.
