Defining Abnormality / Mood Disorders
Unit 1 Discussion 1
Normal and Abnormal
How are the terms normal and abnormal used in the study of human behavior? Where is the boundary between normality and abnormality, or health and ill-health? Are health and ill-health necessarily opposites?
Create an original example of a person or character whose behavior is problematic, and explain how this person’s behavior represents some of the elements of abnormality described in the text. (The elements of abnormality are suffering, maladaptiveness, deviancy from statistical normality, violation of standards of society, social discomfort, irrationality, and unpredictability).
