Chapter 14 Answer Key
essay question 1
Essay Question # 1
  • It has been said that not all deviant behavior is maladaptive, but all maladaptive behavior is deviant. Discuss this idea, based on what you’ve learned about the definition and criteria of abnormal behavior.
essay question 2
Essay Question # 2
  • Freud believed that most, if not all, psychological disorders are mainly the result of anxiety. However, Freudian explanations of the anxiety disorders receive much less attention today than they once did. From what you’ve learned of Freudian theory, how would a Freudian explanation of the etiology of the anxiety disorders differ from the types of explanations presented in your text?
essay question 3
Essay Question # 3
  • There appear to be some similarities between posttraumatic stress disorder (Chapter 13) and the dissociative disorders in that most cases of each type of disorder are thought to result from extreme stress. How would you justify creating separate classifications for these disorders?
essay question 4
Essay Question # 4
  • Some of the most prominent modern theories of the mood disorders focus primarily on cognitive factors. You learned in Chapter 10 that some theorists believe the experience of emotion is heavily influenced by cognitive factors. In what ways do some of these cognitive theories of emotion agree with theories about cognitive factors in the etiology of the mood disorders?
essay question 5
Essay Question # 5
  • According to the DSM-IV, individuals should not be diagnosed as having a personality disorder before they’re 18 years old because personality is not well established before then. From what you know about personality development (Chapters 11 and 12), can you support this position? You may wish to answer from the particular viewpoint of one of the personality theorists covered in your text (e.g., Erikson, Mischel, Maslow, or others).
