Additionally, you MUST INCLUDE your own thoughts concerning any preconceived beliefs, stereotypes, attitudes and awareness on the questions presented by Dr. Cooke.

Therefore, please write your 1 st paper including questions from below:
1. What were your previous beliefs about the Depression and the Biological Causes of Depressive Symptoms? (Note: Feel free to be as honest as you are comfortable being.

Make sure you Compare and contrast this belief with what the DSM-5 highlights about symptoms included within the diagnosis of The Major Depressive Disorders only.
2. What were your previous beliefs about the role of the Brain with regard to being involved in the symptoms associated with Depression, at a Physiological and Neuro-chemical level? (Note: Feel free to be as honest as you are comfortable being. The objective is to indicate where you were before your introduction to the lecture material and selected film footage.)
a. Make sure you Compare and contrast this belief with both what was discussed during our lecture and what you recall learning from the two films you were able to observe.
Remember that for this course I am sincerely interested in your thoughts and feelings as you discuss in your papers your preconceived beliefs/ideas/thoughts. This includes sharing any stereotypes, stigmas, and/or inaccurate observations with the intent of providing new information that has helped to revise, update and clarify your new knowledge and understanding of Depression.
Overall, these papers are designed to increase your factual knowledge and understanding juxtaposed to your preconceived notions, which have been shaped by society and culture. The length of your paper should be more than 1500 words and utilize the APA Publication Manual 6 th Edition recommendations for citations when referring to either the video clips from the films; YouTube clips or the DSM-5.
