Select one disorder from the list below that you do not have a deep understanding of.
In your post:
Identify the disorder that you selected.

Choose from this list of disorders:

Autism Spectrum Disorder
Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another (FDIA)
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Learning about a disorder that you are not familiar with can help you to understand the range of disorders that are present in society. It can also give you an idea of the various ways in which psychological disorders affect others.
Note: If you already have a deep understanding of each of these disorders, you can choose a different disorder from Psych Central’s site: Symptoms & Treatments of Mental Disorders.
