Psycho-Physiological Disorders. Until recently, psychologists believed that psychological symptoms interacted with only a few physical medical conditions. Now, psychologists recognize that in almost every medical condition there is a complex interaction between psychological factors (mind) and physical factors (body).
Describe in your own words how psychological factors and physical factors affect each other in a specific medical condition of your choosing. In addition, please provide a brief definition of psychological stress and explain how the medical condition you chose can be affected by this kind of stress. Choose two specific treatment methods to illustrate how a person with this medical condition can decrease the negative effects of psychological stress.

To support your proposed treatment methods, use the Ashford University Library to locate at least one peer- reviewed article that was published within the last five years. Your article must be cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
