The purpose of this class is to become familiar with PsycINFO, a database produced by the American Psychological Association, so you can use it to find abstracts of two empirical studies related to your case study (“A Sixty-seven Pound Weakling: A Case Study”) and the disorder it describes. Use this worksheet to guide yourself through searching PsycINFO. Save it to your H:\ drive for future reference. (worksheet will be available the day the class is scheduled to visit the library for instruction)
Please e-mail the completed document to me firstname.lastname@example.org
These areas of abnormal psychology have their own individual Library Guide.
