    1. Crane 5.1 Abnormal psychology Concepts of Normality

    2. Defining Abnormality • Abnormality: • The subjective experience of feeling “not normal”

    3. 7 Criteria of Abnormal Behavior • Rosenhan and Seligman (1984) • Suffering—experiencing distress or discomfort • Maladaptiveness—engage in difficult behaviors • Irrationality—incomprehensible or unable to communicate • Unpredictability—act in ways that are unexpected • Vividness and unconventionality—experience different things • Observer discomfort—makes others embarrassed • Violation of moral or ideal standards—habitually break

    4. Mental Health Criteria • Jahoda (1958) 6 Characteristics of Mental Health • Efficient self-perception • Realistic self-esteem and acceptance • Voluntary control of behaviour • True perception of the world • Sustaining relationships and giving affection • Self-direction and productivity • Jahoda does not account for societal or cultural differences

    5. Classifying Abnormal Behaviour • Use the 7 Criteria of Abnormal Behaviour(Rosenhan and Seligman, 1984) and the Mental Health Criteria (Jahoda, 1958) to classify each… • Transvestitism (p.530) • Nail Biting • Mathematics Anxiety (p.50) • Talking to Oneself (p.285) • Homosexuality • Narcissistic Personality Disorder (p.661) • Psychosis Risk Syndrome (worrying) • Should these be listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV)

    6. Is it abnormal? What to call it? • Abnormal Behaviour • Mental Illness (Psychopathology) • Psychological illness that is based on the observed symptoms of a patient. • Problems of the Brain OR Problems in Living? • Psychological Disorder

    7. How do we diagnose Psychological Disorders? • ABCS of Psychological Disorders • Affective symptoms: emotional elements (fear, sadness, anger) • Behavioural symptoms: observational behaviours (crying, physically withdrawn, pacing) • Cognitive symptoms: ways of thinking (pessimism, personalization, self-image) • Somatic symptoms: physical symptoms (facial twitching, stomach cramping, absence of menstruation)

    8. Diagnosing Mental Disorders • Reading Disorder • Separation Anxiety Disorder • Caffeine-Induced Sleep Disorder • Schizophrenia • Agoraphobia • Bipolar Disorder • Hypochondrias • Bulimia Nervosa • Nightmare Disorder • Antisocial Personality Disorder • Hypersomnia Type

    9. Validity and Reliability of Diagnosis • Reliable • Should be possible for different clinicians to arrive at the same diagnosis for the same individual • Valid • Should be able to classify a real pattern of symptoms which can then lead to effective treatment • Is the DSM-IV valid? (Ethnocentrism) • Rosenhan (1973), READ p. 142 • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZOcfllWBq8&feature=related

    10. Ethical Considerations in diagnosis • Stigmatized—socially exclude people • Experience prejudice and discrimination • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy • Act as they think is expected of them

    11. Biases in diagnosis • Racial and Ethnic • Jenkins-Hall and Sacco (1991) • Are African American women less socially competent? • Confirmation Bias • Rosenhan (1973) • If I go in for evaluation, is it assumed that I have a problem? • Powerlessness and Depersonalization • Institutionalization • Verbal and physical abuse

    12. Cultural Considerations • Culture-Bound Syndromes • Depression (absent in Asian societies) • Reporting Bias • Data based on hospital admissions • China—mental illness carries stigma • Difference in Symptoms • Affective (emotional symptoms) • Somatic (physiological symptoms) • Culture Blindness • Whose cultural symptoms are the norm?

    13. General concerns about Culture and Validity • Examine p. 199 (Jamison book) • Read: Supplemental book (p.157)

    14. Apply your knowledge • Read the description of Anne on p. 147 and answer the following questions.

    15. Crane 5.2 Abnormal Psychology: Psychological Disorders • Making a diagnosis (Symptoms and Causes) • Symptomology—identification of symptoms • Examine symptoms of major depressive disorder, • Crane, 149 (Symptoms of Major Depressive Order) • Etiology—why people suffer from a disorder • Biological • Cognitive • Sociocultural Factors

    16. Diagnosing depression in College Students • “Depression can strike early, undetected” • ABC News Article (Discussion) • http://abcnewsradioonline.com/health-news/depression-can-strike-early-undetected.html

    17. Environmental Causes--Analysis • Seasonal Affective Disorder • “Have you cried today?” • August: • Men (4%) Women (7%) • December: • Men (8%) Women (21%)

    18. “This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.” Charlie Brown

    19. “Depression is nourished by a lifetime of ungrieved and unforgiven hurts.” Penelope Sweet

    20. “Depression is not sobbing and crying and giving vent, it is plain and simple reduction of feeling...People who keep stiff upper lips find that it's damn hard to smile.” Judith Guest

    21. Hiding in my room, safe within my womb,I touch no one and no one touches me.I am a rock,I am an island.And a rock feels no pain;And an island never cries. Paul Simon (VIDEO BREAK!!!)

    22. “Nobody tells me. Nobody keeps me informed. I make it 17 days come Friday since anybody spoke to me.” Eeyore

    23. “After all, what are birthdays? Here today and gone tomorrow.” Eeyore

    24. “Depression…is well adapted to make a creature guard itself against any great or sudden evil.” • Darwin (1887)

    25. Crane 5.2 • Making a diagnosis (Examination of Data) • Prevalence Rate—total # of cases in a population • Lifetime Prevalence--% of the population that will experience the disorder at some time in their life • Onset Age—average age at which it is likely to appear

    26. Crane 5.2 • Examine Depression (blue box) and Be a thinker, Crane, 149.

    27. Analyze paper 2 • Discuss Cultural and Ethical considerations in Diagnosis • Culture Bound Syndromes (depression in Asia) • Culture Blindness in Diagnosis (normative white) • Social Class • Stressful Life-Experiences (coping resources) • Biological Differences (fluctuations in hormones) • Gender and the Environment (power relationships)

    28. Can Facebook make us depressed? • http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/facebook-blues-12796540

    29. Quick Write • On your notes, write down as many symptoms of depression as you can think of

    32. Prevalence and Recurrence • Prevalence Rate • Affects 15% of people • ¼ of all psychiatric admissions in the UK (1980) • 2-3 times more common in women than men • More frequent among low socio-economic groups • More frequent among young adults • Recurrent: 80% subsequent episode (3-4 months/ 4 times) • Making diagnosis: Is the person really suffering from depression?

    33. Prevalence and Recurrence • # 1 reason people seek mental health services • Leading cause of disability worldwide • Can depression be a form of psychic hibernation? • Slows us down • Defuses aggression • Restrains risk taking • Redirect energy to positive experiences • Darwin anyone???

    34. Is it depression or dysthymic disorder? • “The difference between a blue mood after bad news and a mood disorder is like the difference between gasping for breath after a hard run and being chronically short of breath” Myers

    35. Etiology of Major Depressive Disorder (Causes) • Is depression a response to a single event? • Or, to long-term consequences (continual stress and disappointment) • Does stress always lead to depression?

    36. Integrative Analysis Chart • Using your Crane text (p.151-156), construct an integrative analysis chart on the causes/ factors of DEPRESSION

    37. Research in Psychology • Read/ Discuss • Crane p.153 • Crane p.156 • HW: Crane p.155 • “Discuss the interaction of biological, cognitive, and sociocultural factors in abnormal behavior (depression).”

    38. Etiology and Treatment • Must we know the causes prior to providing treatment? • Can we identify specific causes of disorders? • Examine your integrative analysis chart…

    39. Treatment (Adv. vs. Disadv.) • Biological • Drug Therapy • Cognitive (Psychological) • Individual Therapies • Social • Group Therapy

    40. Biomedical • Drugs are used due to a chemical imbalance • Antidepressants • Elevate the mood of people suffering from depression • Serve to increase or decrease levels of neurotransmitters • Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) • Prozac (fluoxetine)
