Psychoanalytic Cause of mental illness--Internal, Unconscious Conflicts mostly stemming from childhood Freud, Horney, Erikson, Adler, and Jung

Cognitive Cause of mental illness—irrational, dysfunctional thoughts or maladaptive ways of thinking
Sociocultural Cause of mental illness—Dysfunctional society; not you but the society that you live in
Biomedical Cause of mental illness—organic problems, biochemical imbalances, genetic predispositions Psychiatrists

Schizophrenia FRQ—Stand Up Review! Often misunderstood, schizophrenia is a psychological disorder affecting one percent of the population. In treating the disorder, psychologists work to identify its nature and origins. – Identitify two characteristics used to diagnose schizophrenia – Discuss a research finding that supports a genetic basis for schizophrenia – What is the dopamine hypothesis regarding the origins of schizophrenia? – Describe how medications used to treat schizophrenia affect the actions of neurotransmitters at the synapse. – Identify a risk inherent in the treatment of schizophrenia. – People often times confuse schizophrenia with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder). Identify two characteristics that differeniate DID from Schizophrenia.
