Psychology EPQ ideasWatch
I'm wanting to do an EPQ on a psychology topic and am looking towards something mental health related, maybe a specific disorder. However I don't want to do the typical 'what causes ....' If anyone has any ideas or suggestions it would be very much appreciated
Alternatively you could write an essay on the best ways to treat a disorder.
For my last Masters essay I wrote about the use of exercise in the treatment of anorexia nervosa bearing in mind that exercise can be a symptom/correlate of anorexia. I loved researching and writing that because the research is generally pretty recent, and it was interesting to look at a different perspective in AN treatment.
You could look into CBT/DBT/family therapy/medication effectiveness for a particular disorder, or on the outcome of one of those disorders (prognosis, quality of life, etc).
You could do something to do with inpatient treatment (looking at the prevalence of a certain issue - self-harm, gender differences, staff attitudes, physical health in mental health inpatient units, anything...)
Stereotypes and public attitudes towards a particular disorder (or mental health problems in general), stigma, things like that?
