Exploring the complexities of abnormal psychology: Understanding and treating mental health disorders.
The psychological approach examines the impact of past experiences and traumas on an individual's mental health, while the sociocultural approach looks at the role of cultural and social factors in the development of mental health disorders. There are many different types of mental health disorders that fall under the umbrella of abnormal psychology. Anxiety disorders, for example, are characterized by persistent and excessive worry or fear. Common anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Mood disorders, on the other hand, involve significant and persistent changes in mood, including depression, bipolar disorder, and seasonal affective disorder. Personality disorders are characterized by inflexible and maladaptive personality traits, such as borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, and antisocial personality disorder .Author(s): Margarita Sala*
