I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
The topic I’m choosing for this paper is eating disorders.
The paper must be between 5-8 pages in length (double-spaced, 12 point font, 1-inch margins; no hand-written papers). Please note, title page and reference list page are both required, however, neither are included in the 5-8 pages in length. Papers less than 5 pages will not receive full credit. The paper must include at least 3 research citations (scientific references, APA style for citations and references).
