3 Historical Perspectives on Abnormal behavior
The Ancient World China (200 BC) Chung Ching stated that both organ pathologies & stressful psychological situations were causes of mental disorders. Greece Hippocrates ( BC) believed mental illness was the result of natural, as opposed to supernatural, causes. Galen ( AD) divided the causes of mental disorders into physical and psychological explanations.

4 Middle Ages ( AD) Islamic countries- a. mental hospitals were established (792 AD)b. Persian doctor Sina wrote the Canon of Medicine(medications). Europe –abnormal behavior was most frequently viewed as demonic possession. treatment entailed – prayer & exorcism.

5 The Renaissance AD Spanish nun Teresa of Avila ( ) established the conceptual framework that the mind can be sick. Both Johann Weyer ( ) of Germany and Scot ( ) of England used scientific skepticism to refute the concept of demonic possession.

6 Humanitarian Reforms (18th-19th century)
In France, Philippe Pinel ( ) pioneered a compassionate medical model for the treatment of the mentally ill & established a hospital in Paris. In England, William Tuke ( ) introduced trained nurses for the mentally ill & helped to change public attitudes regarding their treatment. In US, Benjamin rush ( ) founder of American Psychiatry, encouraged humane treatment of the mentally ill & hospitals.

7 Scientific Advances of the 20th Century
Development in technology such as MRI and PET scans have added to our knowledge of the biological bases of psychological disorder. MRI PET Development in pscycho-pharmacology have provided effective treatment for many psychological disorder.

Explanation Treatment Example Illustration

15 Medical Perspective Explanation:
Focus on biological and physiological factors as causes of abnormal behavior . Treated as a disease, or mental illness, and is diagnosed through symptoms and cured through treatment. Treatment: Hospitalization and drugs are often preferred methods of treatment rather than psychological investigation. Example: Schizophrenia needs medication to quiet voices, hallucinations and level dopamine.

16 Psychodynamic Perspective
Explanation: Evolved from Freudian psychoanalytic theory, which contends that psychological disorders are the consequence of anxiety produced by unresolved, unconscious conflicts(childhood). Treatment: focuses on identification and resolution of the conflicts. Example: Child neglected, no love will grow up to not love him/herself or others

17 Behavioral/Learning Perspective
Explanation: Results from faulty or ineffective learning and conditioning. Treatments are designed to reshape disordered behavior and, using traditional learning procedures, to teach new, more appropriate, and more adaptive responses. For example, a behavioral analysis of a case of child abuse might suggest that a father abuses his children because he learned the abusive behavior from his father and must now learn more appropriate parenting tactics

18 Cognitive Perspective
Explanation: People engage in abnormal behavior because of particular thoughts and behaviors that are often based upon their false assumptions. This is how the information is being decoded and retrieved (interpreted or memory issues). Treatments are oriented toward helping the maladjusted individual develop new thought processes and new values. Therapy is a process of unlearning maladaptive habits and replacing them with more useful ones. Example: Anger issues from low road to high road

19 Social-Cultural Perspective
Explain: Abnormal behavior is learned within a social context ranging from the family, to the community, to the culture. Treatment: Introducing and teaching the individual about in abnormal behavior within the culture by comparing and contrasting. Example: Anorexia nervosa and bulimia are psychological disorders found mostly in Western cultures, which value the thin female body

20 Biological Perspective
Views abnormal behavior as arising from a physical cause, such as genetic inheritance, biochemical abnormalities or imbalances, structural abnormalities within the brain, and/or infections Agrees that physical causes are of central importance but also recognizes the influence of biological, psychological, and social factors in the study, identification, and treatment of psychological disorders

21 Bio-Psych-Social Perspective
States Psychologists contend that ALL behavior, whether called normal or disordered arises from the interaction of nature and nurture. The bio-psycho-social perspective is a contemporary perspective which assumes that biological, sociocultural, and psychological factors combine and interact to produce psychological disorders.
