Areas of Abnormal Psychology

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 and the disorder it describes.  Use this worksheet to guide yourself through searching PsycINFO.  Feel free to save this worksheet for future reference.
