Date Created: 01/22/16
Week 1 1/13/16 Behavioral definitions: psychopathology refers to some kind of behavior  E.g. strange or unusual behavior  E.g. socially deviant behavior  violates social rules, common in sociology  E.g. maladaptive behavior  Not in persons self interest, self defeating behavior Behavioral definitions have serious problems:  Many consensus pathologies do not involve any characteristic behavior  Specific types of behavior specified by behavioral definitions don't hold up  Behavioral definitions just don’t work!! Disability Definitions: psychopathology refers to behavioral disability (dysfunction, functional impairment), not to a kind of behavior  Preferred version: "A person is in a pathological state when there is a significant restriction in his or her ability to engage in deliberate action, and equivalently, to participate in the social practices of the community" (Ossorio, 2006)  Know what your doing, and do it on purpose  Elements of Ossorio's definition:  Significant restriction in ability  To engage in deliberate action E.g. P doesn’t know what he or she is doing E.g. P can't control behavior  Participate  Social practices of community Cf. Freud: "love and work" 1/15/16 What is "normality"?  Ossorio: "normal" - not abnormal, not pathological; it's simply absence of pathology Beyond normality: "positive mental health"  Ossorio: person is (1) not in a pathological state, but, beyond this, is (2) unusually capable of participating in life in meaningful and fulfilling ways -- unusually able to "love and work" Part 1 of course: Anxiety Disorders - Phobias Definition: a persistent and unreasonable fear of a particular object, activity, or situation (Comer, 2013)  Must be debilitating, disabling
