Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy ▯ Abnormal Psych ~ Chapter 1 ▯ What is abnormal? o The scientific study of abnormal behavior in an effort to describe, predict, explain, and change abnormal patterns of functioning. What is psychological abnormality? o Most definitions have certain features in common: The four d’s Deviance Behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that differ markedly from a society’s ideas about proper functioning/ social norms Distress Behaviors, ideas, or emotions usually have to cause distress before they can be labeled abnormal Dysfunction Abnormal behavior tends to be dysfunctional – it interferes with daily functioning Danger Abnormal behavior may become dangerous to oneself or others o Behavior may be consistently careless, hostile, or confused What is treatment? o Treatment or therapy, is a procedure designed to change o According to Jerome Frank, all forms of therapy have 3 essential features: 1. Sufferer seeks healer Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy 2. A trained, socially accepted healer is chosen 3. A series of contacts between the healer and the sufferer change “abnormal” function to “normal” functioning o Each year 30% of adults and 19% of children an adolescents in the US display serious psychological disturbances and are in need of clinical treatment In addition, most people have difficulty coping at different times o Ancient views and treatments The work of evil spirits Stone age Treatments: trephination and exorcism Greek and Roman views and Treatments 500BC to 500AD Hippocrates believed and taught that illness had natural causes Unbalance of the four fluids, or humors o Treatment: rebalance, bloodletting, warm baths Europe in the Middle Ages: Demonology Returns 5001350AD The church rejected scientific forms of investigation Demonology reemerges The renaissance and the rise of Asylums 14001700 Demonological views decline The mind was as susceptible to sickness as the body/care improves through humane and loving treatment of people with mental disorders Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy o Unfortunately, this time also saw a rise of asylums (institutions) th The 19 century: reform and moral treatment As 1800 approached, the treatment of people with mental disorders began to improve once again Care that emphasized moral guidance and humane and respectful techniques. 19 Century By the end of the 19 century, the moral treatment movement started to reverse th By the early years of the 20 century longterm hospitalization became the rule once again Early 20 century: Dual perspectives Late 1800s, two opposing perspectives emerged: The Somatogenic perspective o Abnormal functioning has physical cases Biological approaches yielded mostly disappointing results throughout the first half of the 20 century In the 1950s, a number of effective medications were finally discovered. The Psychogenic perspective o Abnormal functioning has psychological causes Hypnotism: Freud/outpatient therapy Psychoanalytic theory and treatment Current trends 43% of people surveyed believe that people bring mental health disorders upon themselves and 35% consider mental health disorders to be caused by sinful behavior. How are people with severe disturbances cared for? Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy o In the 1950s, researchers discovered a number of new psychotropic medications: Antipsychotic drugs; antidepressant drugs; antianxiety drugs o Led to deinstitutionalization and a rise in outpatient care Outpatient care has now become the primary mode of treatment o Nearly 1 in 6 adults in the US receives treatment for psychological disorders in the course of a year, the majority for fewer then 5 sessions o Development of programs devoted exclusively to one kind of psychological problem. A growing emphasis on preventing disorders and promoting mental health o The community mental health approach has given rise to the prevention movement Many of todays programs are trying to: Correct the social conditions that underlie psychological problems Help individuals at risk for developing disorders Energized by the positive psychology movement What are todays leading theories and professions? o Theoretical perspectives: Psychoanalytic Biological Behavioral Cognitive Humanisticexistential Sociocultural Research in Abnormal Psych Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy o The systematic search for facts through the use of careful observations and investigations Clinical researchers must consider different cultural backgrounds, races, and genders of the people they study They must always ensure that the rights of their research participants, both human and animal, are not violated. What is a case study? o Provides a detailed, interpretive description of a person’s life and psychological problems What is a correlation? o Correlation is the degree to which events or characteristics vary with each other. o Examples of correlational questions in clinical research Are stress and onset of mental disorders related? Are family conflict and mental disorders related? o Correlational Data Positive, negative, unrelated (no slope) the magnitude (strength) of a correlation is also important Hi magnitude, low magnitude o What ate the merits for the correlational method Advantages Can generalize findings Can repeat (replicate) studies on other samples Difficulties with correlational studies: Results describe but do not explain a Relationship, one does not cause the other Experimental methods Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy o A variable is manipulated and the manipulation’s effect on another o Three things that are part of an experiment to guard against confounds: A control group A group of research participants who are not exposed to the treatment Random assignment Equal possibility of being placed in either group Blind design Participants don’t know if they are in control or experiment Double blind The person doing the experiment doesn’t know which group the participant is in. o Quasiexperimental Use groups that already exist o Natural Experiment Nature manipulates the independent variable and the experimenter observes the effects o Analogue Experiments Allow investigators to manipulate independent variables while avoiding ethical and practical limitations o Singlesubject experiment A single participant is observed both before and after manipulation of an independent variable Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy ▯ Abnormal Psych ~ Chapter 3 ▯ ▯ Models of Abnormality Paradigms influence… o What investigators observe, o The questions they ask, o The information they seek, o And how they interpret this information The Biological Model o Medical perspective o Psychological abnormality is an illness o Includes: Brain anatomy: problems in specific brain areas Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy Brain chemistry: endocrine system Genetic abnormality Evolution Viral infections o Biological treatments Three types of biological treatment: Drug therapy Electroconvulsive therapy (ETC) Psychosurgery (or neurosurgery) o Assessing the Biological model Strengths Valuable new information Treatments bring great relief Weaknesses Can limit our understanding Treatments produce significant undesirable (negative) effects. The Psychodynamic Model o Behavior is determined largely by underlying psychological forces of which he or she is not consciously aware. o Assessing the Psychodynamic Model Strengths First to apply theory and techniques systematically to treatment monumental impact on the field Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy Weaknesses Unsupported ideas; difficult to research The Behavioral Model o Several forms of conditioning Operant conditioning Modeling Classical conditioning o Assessing the Behavioral Model Strengths Can be tested in the lab Significant research support for behavioral therapies Weaknesses Too simplistic The Cognitive Model o Cognitive processes the center of behaviors, thoughts, and emotions Faulty assumptions, illogical thinking o Assessing the Cognitive Model Strengths Focuses on a uniquely human process Therapies effective in treating several disorders Weaknesses Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy Precise role of cognition in abnormality has yet to be determined The HumanisticExistential Model o The humanist view Focus on drive to selfactualize through honest recognition of strengths and weaknesses o The existentialist view Emphasis on choice and individual responsibility; meaning o Assessing The HumanisticExistential Model Strengths Taps into domains missing from other theories Optimistic Emphasizes health Weaknesses Focuses on abstract issues Difficult to research The Sociocultural Models o Social and cultural forces that influence an individual Norms and roles in society o Compromised of two major perspectives: Familysocial perspective Multicultural perspective o Familysocial treatments Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy Includes: Group therapy Family therapy Couple therapy Community treatment Includes prevention o How do the multicultural theorists explain abnormal functioning Unique cultural context Evaluates prejudice and discrimination faced by many minority groups. o Assessing the Sociocultural Models Strengths Awareness of culture and social roles Successful when other treatments have failed Weaknesses Research is difficult to interpret Correlation doesn’t = causation Integration of the Models o Integrative therapists are often called “eclectic” taking the strength from each model and using them in combination Example: biopsychosocial theorists favor a diathesisstress approach. Abnormal Psychology 01/28/2016 ▯ Abnormal Psych ~ Chapter 4 ▯ Clinical Assessment, Diagnosis, and Treatment Clinical assessment: How and Why Does the client behave abnormally? o Clinical assessment is used to determine how and why a person is behaving abnormally and how that person may be helped. o The specific tools used in an assessment depend on the clinician’s theoretical orientation o Hundreds of clinical assessment tools have been developed and fall into three categories: Clinical interviews Tests Observations Clinical interviews o Facetoface o Often are the first contact between a client and a clinician/ assessor o Can be either unstructured or structured Clinical Tests o Tests are devices for gathering information about a few aspects of a person’s psychological functioning, from which broader information can be inferred o More than 500 clinical tests are currently in use They fall into six categories 1. Projective tests Require that clients interpret vague and ambiguous stimuli or follow openended instruction Mainly used by psychodynamic practitioners Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy Most popular o Rorschach test o Thematic apperception test o Sentence completion tests o Drawings Strengths and weaknesses o Helpful for providing “supplementary” information o Have rarely demonstrated much reliability or validity o May be biased against minority ethnic groups 2. Personality inventories Designed to measure broad personality characteristics Usually selfreported Most widely used: Minnesota multiphasic personality inventory Strengths and weaknesses o Easier, cheaper, and faster to administer than projective tests o Objectively scored and standardized o Tests fail to allow for cultural differences in responses. 3. Response inventories Usually based on selfreported responses Focus on one specific area of functioning o Affective inventories Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy o Social skills inventories o Cognitive inventories Strengths and weaknesses o Have strong face validity o Not all have been subjected to careful standardization, reliability, and/or validity procedures 4. Psychophysiological tests Measure physiological response as an indication of psychological problems. Weaknesses o Require expensive equipment that must be tuned and maintained o Can be inaccurate and unreliable o Intelligence Tests 6. Intelligence Tests Designed to indirectly measure intellectual ability Typically compromised by a series Strengths o Highly standardized on large groups of subjects o Have very high reliability and validity Weaknesses o Performance can be influenced by non intelligence factors (motivation, anxiety) o Tests may contain cultural biases in language or tasks Clinical observations o Systematic observations of behavior o Several kinds Naturalistic: occur in everyday environments Analog are used and conducted in artificial settings Selfmonitoring people observe themselves and carefully record the Does the client’s syndrome match a known diagnosis? o Using all available information, clinicians attempt to paint a “clinical picture” Influenced by their theoretical Abnormal Psychology ▯ Abnormal Psych ~ Chapter 5 Abnormal Psychology ▯ What distinguishes fear from anxiety? Fear is an immediate response to a specific stimuli Anxiety is the lingering apprehension, or a chronic sense of worry or tension, the sources of which may be totally unclear ▯ How can experiences fear and/ or be useful? ▯ Anxiety Anxiety Disorders o Most common mental disorders in the us o Five disorders Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) Excessive anxiety under most circumstances and worry about practically anything Symptoms include: feeling restless, keyed up, or on edge; fatigue; difficulty concentrating; muscle tension; and/or sleep problems GAD: the sociocultural Perspective Most likely to develop in people faced with social conditions that are truly dangerous GAD: the Psychodynamic Perspective Some children experience particularly high levels of anxiety, or their defense mechanisms are particularly inadequate, and they may develop GAD GAD: the Humanistic Perspective Propose that GAD, like other psychological disorders, arises when people stop looking at themselves honestly and acceptingly. GAD: the Cognitive Perspective GAD is caused by maladaptive assumptions GAD: the Biological Perspective Abnormal Psychology GABA inactivity: Benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax) found to reduce anxiety o Probably more complicated than a single neurotransmitter Phobias Persistent and unreasonable fears of particular objects, activities, or situations We all have our areas of special fear; this is a normal and common experience How do such common fears differ from phobias? Most phobias technically are categorized as “specific” Also 2 broader kinds: o Agoraphobia o Social anxiety disorder Specific Phobias Persistent fears of specific objects or situations When exposed to the object or situation, sufferers experienced immediate fear Most common: phobias of specific animals or insects, heights, enclosed spaces, thunderstorms, and blood What causes specific phobias? The behavioral model: o Phobias develop through conditioning o Once fears are acquired, the individuals avoid the dreaded object or situation, permitting the fears to become all the more entrenched. How are specific phobias treated? Behavioral techniques are most widely used desensitization, flooding, and modeling together called “exposure treatments” Agoraphobia Abnormal Psychology Afraid of being in situations where escape might be difficult, should they experience panic or become incapacitated Social anxiety disorder Severe, persistent, and irrational fears of social or performance situations in which scrutiny by others and embarrassment may occur. Panic disorders Panic, an extreme anxiety reaction, can result when a real threat suddenly emerges “Panic attacks” are part of panic disorder, but not everyone who experiences panic attacks has panic disorder Panic disorder often (but not always) accompanied by agoraphobia Panic Disorder: the Biological Perspective Norepinephrine Brain circuits and the amygdala Drug therapies o Antidepressants o Benzodiazepines (especially Xanax) Panic Disorder: the Cognitive Perspective People misinterpret bodily events Cognitive therapy o Tries to correct people’s misinterpretations of their bodily sensations Step 1: educate Step 2: teach accurate interpretations Step 3: teach coping skills ▯ ObsessiveCompulsive Disorder Abnormal Psychology Made up of 2 components o Obsessions Persistent thoughts, ideas, impulses, or images that seem to invade a person’s consciousness o Compulsions Repetitive and rigid behaviors or mental acts that people feel they must preform to prevent or reduce anxiety ObsessiveCompulsive Disorder o Was once among the least understood of the psychological disorders o The most influential explanations are from the psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, and biological models. OCD o The psychodynamic Perspective: children fear their id impulses and use ego defense mechanisms o The Behavioral Perspective: concentrated on treating compulsions o The cognitive Perspective: pointing out that everyone has repetitive, unwanted, and intrusive thoughts. o OCD: the cognitive Perspective: According to this model, people with OCD are more likely than other people to: Have some history of depression Have exceptionally high standards Believe their thoughts can bring harm Believe that they should have full control over their thoughts. o OCD: Treatment CognitiveBehavioral therapy Combination of the cognitive and behavioral models more effective than either intervention alone Abnormal Psychology Psychoeducation Exposure and response prevention exercises o OCD: The Biological Perspective 53% concordance rate in identical twins, versus 23% in fraternal twins Abnormal serotonin activity Abnormal brain structure and functioning Orbitofrontal cortex and caudate nuclei / too active Biological therapies Serotoninbased antidepressants Research suggests that combination therapy (medications/ ObsessiveCompulsiveRelated Disorders o DSM5 has created the group name “ObsessiveCompulsiveRelated Disorders” and assigned four patterns to that group: hoarding, hair pulling disorder, excoriation (skinpicking), and body dimorphic disorder Abnormal Psychology Dr. Joy ▯ Abnormal Psych ~ Chapter 7 ▯ Mood Disorders ▯ Two key emotions Depression o Low, sad state in which life seems dark and its challenges overwhelming o Depression > Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) Mania o State of breathlessness euphoria or frenzied energy o Mania > Bipolar Depression Cycles of mood disorders o MDD: goes low, stays low, rises, but then is low o Bipolar: goes high, then low, then high, then low, over many weeks ▯ Unipolar depression Major depressive disorder (MDD) is the leading cause of disability in the US for ages 1544 o Around 8% of adults suffer each year o Lifetime prevalence rates ~19% Gender difference o Women are twice as likely to experience MDD than men o No gender difference in childhood Highly comorbid o If you have one, you probably have the other o Generalized Anxiety disorder o Other medical disorders 4x more likely to experience heart attack Cancer Parkinson’s disease Eating disorders Substance uses Symptoms o What may be some symptoms and criteria for depression?

Trouble concentrating or indecisiveness 9. Suicidal ideation or attempt Diagnosing Unipolar Disorder o DSM5 lists several types of depressive disorders: Major depressive disorder Dysthymic Disorder changes to Persistent Depressive Disorder Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder Disruptive Mood regulation Disorder What causes Unipolar Depression? o Stress o Biological Factors Genetic factors High degrees of heritability (twin & adoption studies) Neurotransmitters– SSRI’s Molecular Biology– 5HTTLPR o Psychological Factors Three main models Psychodynamic view No strong research Strengths o Link between depression and grief o Early loss= greater risk for depression o Lack of need in childhood= greater risk Weaknesses o Inconsistent research o Sometimes impossible to test: what is an id? Behavioral View Strengths o Support from research Weaknesses o Largely self reported o Typically correlational and doesn’t assess the actual number Cognitive view Two main theories o Negative thinking Cognitive triad Negative views about: self, world, future Cognitive errors Unrealistic bad thoughts about the event Strengths Strong empirical support Limitations Research fails to show that such cognitive patterns are the cause of unipolar depression o Learned helplessness Strengths There has been significant research support for this model Limitations Laboratory helplessness does not parallel depression Much of the research has been dome on animals o Sociocultural Factors Familysocial perspective The connection between declining social rewards and depression is a two way street Marital stress Separated or divorced= higher rates of depression The multicultural perspective The relationship between gender and depression has become particularly interesting A variety if theories has been offered o Artifact theory o Hormone explanation o Life stress theory o Body dissatisfaction theory o Lack of control theory o Rumination theory Relationship between cultural background and depression Nonwestern countries experience greater physical symptoms than cognitive Within US, differences have been found Living in oppressive situations ▯ Bipolar Depression Symptoms and Criteria for Bipolar Depression o Assessing for Bipolar Depression o Five main areas of functioning may be affected: Emotional symptoms Motivational Symptoms Behavioral Symptoms Cognitive Symptoms Physical Symptoms o Symptoms of Mania Abnormally, persistently elevated or irritable mood lasting at least one week Three or more of the following Grandiosity Decreased need for help Pressured speech Flight of ideas Distractibility Increased goaldirected activity/ psychomotor agitation Excessive involvement in pleasurable activities DSM5 distinguishes two kinds of bipolar disorder o Bipolar I Full manic and major depressive episodes Most experience an alternation of episodes Some have mixed episodes o Bipolar II Hypomanic episodes alternate with major depressive episodes Diagnosing Bipolar Disorders o Between 1 and 2.6% of all adults in the world suffer from a bipolar disorder at any given time, and as many as 4% over the course of their lives o The disorders are equally common in women and men o The disorders can manifest from 1544 years Causes of Bipolar Disorders o Neurotransmitters Permissive theory Low norepinephrine in depression. High in mania Low serotonin in depression… doesn’t equal high in mania Mania= low serotonin + high norepinephrine o Ion activity Ions, which are needed to send incoming messages to nerve endings, may be improperly transported through the cells of individuals with bipolar disorder o Brain structure o Genetic Factors Abnormal Psych ~ Chapter 8 Treatments for Mood Disorder Mindfulness Approach Is Being o Present o Nonjudgmental The research o Decreased depression in firefighters experiencing PTSD o Longterm improvement in depressive symptoms in adults who experienced abuse as children o Decreased symptoms of depression and PTSD in veterans. Treatments for Unipolar Depression Traditional Approaches o Around half of persons with unipolar depression receive treatment from a mental health professional every year o Many other people seek support for depressed feelings Psychological Approaches o Psychodynamic Widely used, research support not strong Psychodynamic therapy Free association Therapist interpretation Review of past events and feelings Why might these approaches be quite limited when used with people suffering with depression? o Behavioral Primarily used for mild or moderate depression but practiced less than in the past Behavioral Therapy Reintroduce pleasurable activities Improve social skills Behavioral treatments are best for mild forms Behavioral techniques most effective when paired with cognitive strategies o Cognitive Has preformed so well in research that it has a large and growing clinical following Cognitive Therapy Includes a number of behavioral techniques Help clients recognize and change their negative cognitive process Phases Increased activities and elevating mood Challenging automatic thoughts Identifying negative thinking and biases Changing Primary attitudes Sociocultural Approaches o FamilySocial treatments Interpersonal therapy (IPT) Interpersonal loss Grief Interpersonal role dispute Couples or family based therapy What people need from others Love language survey o Five different ways that we feel loved Interpersonal role transition Transitions How major changes in life can affect our roles and us. Interpersonal deficits Social skills Studies suggest that IPT has a success rate similar to cognitive and cognitivebehavior therapies for treating depression Biological Approaches o Medicine or Medical Care Bring great relief Antidepressant drugs (MAO inhibitors or Tricyclic’s) Tricyclic’s are believed to reduce depression by affecting neurotransmitter (NT) reuptake mechanisms Sometimes includes electroconvulsive therapy or brain stimulation Secondgeneration antidepressants Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) Fluoxetine (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), and escitalopram (Lexapro) Selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and serotoninnorepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are also now available Cognitive, cognitivebehavioral, interpersonal, and biological therapies are all highly effective treatments for mild to severe unipolar depression Psychodynamic therapies = less effective than other therapies in treating all levels of unipolar depression Psychotherapy + drug therapy is modestly more helpful than either treatment alone. Treatments for Bipolar Disorder Recall the emotional roller coaster included depression and mania o Low serotonin + low norepinephrine = depression o Low serotonin + high norepinephrine = mania Treatment Medications Lithium and Other Mood stabilizers o Lithium and Other Mood stabilizers o Lithium side effects/ kidney, thyroid, dehydration Need to find right amount o Researchers do not fully understand how moodstabilizing drugs operate. Treatment o Mood stabilizing drugs alone are not always sufficient o 30% or more of patients don’t respond, may not receive the correct dose, and/or may relapse while taking it o Therapy focuses on medication management, social skills, and relationship issue ▯ Abnormal Psych~ Sleep ▯ Biorhythms Circadian: o Around a day, 24hours (eg.
