Abnormal Psychology – 8/31/16  Rosenhan Study: 1973: Psychologists acted like they had a mental illness, recorded that they heard the words: thud, hollow and empty in their heads -were admitted to the hospital- took 7 weeks to be released, normal behavior seen through the lens of ‘acting’ through their illness. -marked as having psychotic symptoms in remission  Normal Behavior- typically social, non disruptive to society.  If behaviors disrupt day to day life they are labeled as Abnormal. -Highly unusual for social context, causing significant distress, interfering with social/ occupational functions.  Abnormality example: 1) Jennifer dropped in weight, friends complimented her on her ‘lean look’, stopped eating normally which caused her to lose focus on school work, even though she is skinny she still would like to lose more weight despite the sideffects.  2) John the heavy drinker, gotten caught for drinking, grades falling, over drinks- abnormal to conceal your problems with alcohol, may be using this as a coping mechanism. 4 D’s of Abnormality- 1. Deviance from the norm -seen as abnormal and unusual- influenced by cultural norms -can be compared to a bell curve, outliers on tails of the graph -if they do not display 1 or more of the other D’s they are not considered abnormal. 2. Dysfunctional -interferes with person’s ability to function 3. Distress -causes physical or emotional pain -or the absence of distress 4. Dangerousness - Either dangerous to yourself or people around you 2

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."
