Capstone Project (B.A.) Liberal Studies Department


This information is part of a power point presentation/workshop explaining the origin of Pica, several definitions about Pica and the three theories that lead to possible causes of the Pica behavior. The project is a collection of slides illustrated with photographs of non-food items found in the most secured environments students/people have: school and home. The goal is to address the invisibility of Pica and the easy accessibility to non food items as an attempt to educate teachers and parents.
