    1. Psychological Disorders

    2. What is a Psychological Disorder?

    3. Psychological Disorders • …are “harmful dysfunctions” in which behavior is judged to be atypical, disturbing, maladaptive, and/or unjustifiable

    4. Atypical • is abnormal – being different from most other people in one’s culture

    5. Disturbing • means that a behavior goes against the standards of acceptable behavior, is unnerving, grotesque, or otherwise disruptive to a generally acceptable level of comfort.

    6. Maladaptiveness • indicates that the behaviors are distressing or disabling or puts one at a greatly increased risk of suffering or death

    7. Unjustifiable • means that certain behaviors are irrational, or that a behavior lacks any mental clarity or reason

    8. What is the nature of Psychological Disorders and their causes?

    9. Biological Model (Medical Model) • Abnormal behaviors are caused by physiological malfunctions – IE. a failure of the central nervous system, an improperly working endocrine system, an abnormal flow of a specific hormone, genetic factors, brain damage

    10. Psychoanalytical Model • Abnormal behaviors are symbolic expressions of unconscious, internal conflicts, often associated with early childhood – IE. A fear of open water due to almost drowning as a child, obsessions with women who remind you of the mother who abandoned you, serial violence against homosexuals based on your own internal orientation conflicts

    11. Behavioral Model • Abnormal behavior is the result of learned behavior – IE. you are a psychopathic killer because you watched violent programming on tv….you obsessively clean the house because Mom obsessively cleaned the house

    12. Diathesis-Stress Model(Bio-Psycho-Social Perspective) • Abnormal behavior is caused when prone individuals who otherwise may not exhibit symptoms are put into stressful situations and then exhibit symptoms

    13. IE. You may occasionally be stressed, or drink a bit or a have trouble sleeping, but then your house burns down, your ID is stolen online, your bank accounts are emptied, your wife leaves you……thus you “snap”. An anxiety disorder emerges, a substance abuse disorder emerges, a sleep disorder emerges….

    14. Classifying Psychological Disorders

    15. There are 18 categories of Psychological Disorders, as specified in the DSM-V (May 2013) – the American Psychiatric Association’s “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders”

    23. Bipolar Disorder

    24. Bipolar Disorder • A person’s mood alternates between mania (expanded self-esteem, reduced need of sleep, talks more often and talks longer, ideas flit in quick succession, thoughts race and preoccupy the person, over indulgence in enjoyable behaviors with high risk of a negative outcome (e.g., extravagant shopping, sexual adventures or improbable commercial schemes) and depression (characterized by a pervasive and persistent low mood that is accompanied by low self-esteem and by a loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities) 

    25. Depressive Disorders

    26. Major Depressive Disorder • Symptoms may include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and worthlessness, as well as complaints of physical pain and changes in appetite, sleep patterns, and energy level. • Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia) • A serious state of chronic depression, which persists for at least 2 years (1 year for children and adolescents); it is less acute and severe than major depressive disorder.

    28. Dissociative Disorders • Involve disturbances in a person’s consciousness, memories, identity, and perception of the environment

    29. Dissociative Identity Disorder • A person has two or more distinct personalities that alternate in their control of the person’s behavior

    30. Amnesia • Loss or impairment of memory. • AnterogradeAmnesia – Cannot create new memories • Retrograde Amnesia – Cannot access old memories • Amnesia with a physical cause is called organic amnesia, whereas amnesia of psychological origin is called functional amnesia
