Considering concepts and phenomena from different theoretical perspectives can broaden your understanding. In this Discussion, you will consider maladaptive behaviors from several different theoretical perspectives or viewpoints.
To prepare: Review this week’s Learning Resources. Focus on the causal factors and viewpoints in Chapter 3 of Abnormal Psychology. Be sure to read the examples for each of the different causal viewpoints and factors. Think about the effect of taking different viewpoints on diagnosis and assessment. Choose one psychological disorder and put the name of the disorder in the subject line of your post.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 a description of one psychological disorder and explain the disorder from two or more causal viewpoints.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references from the Learning Resources.
