o Inadequate parenting styles § Baumrind's four parenting styles § Authoritarian • Impose strict rules • Expect absolute obedience • Use harsh punishment • Permissive § Permissive • Submit to child's desires • Make few demands • Use little punishments § Authoritative • Exert control by establishing rules and consistently enforcing them • Explain reasons for rules • Encourage open discussion § Rejecting/neglecting • Disengaged • Expect little and invest little § Studies have found that children with the highest sel-esteem, most self-relience, and greatest sense of control over their own lives tend t have warm concerned, authoritative parents § Divorce § About half of the children born in the past few decades wille xperience their parents divorce and spend an average of 5 years in a single parent home • Usually mom is the custodial parent § Children in intact families § Children in divorced families • More likely to have social academic and behavioral problems that children in intact families • Adult children are more likely to experience social, emotional, or psychological problems than adult children of intact families • More likely to be in lower SES • More likely to have their own marriage end up in divorce § Children with stepfamilies • Boys in stepfamilies are more likely to accept a stepfather and benefit from his presence than girls in stepfamilies • About 75% of women who divorce are likely to remarry, about 80% of men are likely to remarry • Most commonly mom, stepdad, and mom's biological children • About 15% currently living in a blended family § People report being happier and more satisfied immediately after a divorce • Remarriages are more likely to fail than the first marriage § Maladaptive peer relationships § Popularity SOCIOCULTURAL THEORIES AND CAUSAL FACTORS OF ABNORMALITY • Overview o More focused on the social components that are more broad: § Lower SES § Unemployment § Social change and uncertainty § Violence § Homelessness o These are not mutually exclusive --> they overlap a lot of times o Result in the increase of stress that can increase the sociocultural causal factors (ex: lower SES causes more stress and can cause more psychological problems) • Also note that when individuals experience a mental disorder, they are more likely to move into a lower socioeconomic group, become unemployed, have increased difficulty adjusting to social change and uncertainty, experience more violence, and become homeless --> in other words it is a two-way street INTERACTIVE THEORIES OF ABNORMALITY Clinical Assessment ASSESSMENT INTERVIEW • Face to face interaction in which a clinician obtains information about various aspects of a clients life o Work history, home history, ever been hospitalized, every tried to commit suicide o Based on self-report which may not be the most reliable o (ex: structured interview - predetermined set of questions; unstructured interview- minimal structure, a lot of open-ended questions interview) • Structured interviews are generally more reliable • Unstructured interviews allow you to gather important information that you may not have gathered in structured interview • Lots of times clinicians will use both CLINCIAL OBSERVATION • Direct observation of the client's appearance and behavior (ex: are they dressed for summer when its cold out, are they clean-shaven, are they limping, are they hostile, are they shaky) GENERAL PHYSICAL EXAMINATION • Medical evaluation of a client to assess physical symptoms (ex: x-rays, vision screenings, hearing screenings) NEUROLOGICAL EXAM • Medical examination of client to determine the presence and extent of organic brain damage o (ex: brain wave abnormalities --> EEG, structural abnormalities --> cat scan or MRI, functional abnormalities --> PET scan or fMRI) READ IN THE TEXTBOOK BECAUSE SHE WILL ASK ABOUT THIS NEURPSYCHOLOGICAL EXAMINATION • Overview o Psychological batter of tests that assess a client's cognitive, perceptual, and motor performance to identify extent and location of brain damage o Used to detect behavioral and psychological impairments due to organic brain abnormalities --> these brain abnormalities may be detected via neuropsychological exams before they are evident on the neurological exams • Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Test Battery INTELLIGENCE TESTS • Test used in establishing a client's level of intelligence • Classification of intelligence tests o Achievement test - designed to asses what a person already have learned, that is their current level of competence o Aptitude tests - intended to predict your ability to learn a new skill, they are designed to predict a person's future performance or one's capacity to learn o Individual test - administered to one individual at a time, buy one test o Group test - administered to a group of individuals, all at the same time and place • Psychometric properties o Standardization - process of establishing norms for a test (ex: paper with a 32 or 92, we don't know which is better) • Administer test to representative sample • Obtain norms • Compare test scores to norms o Reliability - consistency over time • Test-retest reliability - expect some relationship between your two scores • Internal consistency - expect some relationship within the test (ex: look at odd numbers vs. even numbers) o Validity - degree to which test measures what it purports to measure • Valid tests are reliable but reliable tests are not necessarily valid • Wechsler tests of intelligence o Most commonly used tests of intelligence o Each test is made of a verbal component and performance component o Versions of the Wechsler tests • Wechsler primary and preschool scales of intelligence (WPPSI) - 3-6 years old • Wechsler intelligence scale for children (WISC) - 6-16 years old • Wechsler adult intelligence scale (WAIS) - 16 and up o Wechsler subtests • Verbal § § Comprehension --> common sense § Vocabulary --> define a bunch of words (this would be the best subtest to give to measure IQ) • Performance § Block design - make colored blocks look like a picture (visual and performance skills) • Get bonus points for going faster o Interpreting Wechsler scores • End up with overall IQ, verbal IQ, and performance IQ • Average score is 100 § About 68% is between 85 and 115 § 2% score above 130 --> cut off for giftedness § 2% score below 70 --> cut off for mental disability § About 96% will score between 70 and 130 PROJECTIVE PERSONALITY TESTS • Overview o In using projective personality tests, individuals are asked to respond to ambiguous stimuli, in that there is no right or wrong answer, their responses are thought to be a projection or reflection of: • Underlying traits • Preoccupations • Conflicts • Coping techniques • Motives • Rorschach test o Developed by Rorschach in 1911 o Projective test that utilizes inkblots to elicit information on a clients personality • Involves considerable training to administer and interpret • Has minimal reliability and validity o Ambiguous stimuli are inkblots --> not real pictures o Not used as much today • Not very reliable or valid • Exner --> information about him in textbook o Has computer technology --> does increase reliability of the test but perhaps still not enough (insurance will not reimburse you) • Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) o Constructed in 1930's by Morgan and Murray o Projective test that utilizes ambiguous pictures to elicit information on a clients personality • Still used in clinical practice and personality research • Has minimal reliability and validity o Ambiguous stimuli --> nonspecific pictures OJECTIVE PERSONALITY TESTS • Overview o Can be questionnaires, rating scales, etc. o More easily quantifiable --> greater reliability • Minnesota multiphasic personality inventory (MMPI) o Most widely used personality test for both clinical assessment and psychopath research in the US o Used in many other countries • Updating the MMP § MMPI (1943) and revision MMPI-2 (1989) is what we use now • Empirical keying § Used in selecting items for the original MMPI § Came up with a bunch of statements and administered them to multiple groups: • Normals: individuals that did not have any known diagnosis • Homogenous groups: group of individuals who were believed to be depressed, schizophrenic, etc. § "I am easily awakened by noise" - no obvious relationship to any psychological problem § Did a bunch of analysis to see which statements differentiated the normals from the homogenous groups § Do not necessarily indicate disease --> just differentiates the groups • Clinical scales - assesses one's propensity to respond in ways that are psychologically deviant § 10 of them (depression, hysteria, schizophrenia, paranoia, etc.) § Just because you score high on the scale doesn’t mean you have the disease; you just share some characteristics as the people who have the disease • Validity scales - measures the individual's tendency to respond to the questions honestly § Try to asses how accurate the person's responses § (ex: "What other people think of me does not bother me." If you say true, that is probably unlikely so your validity score goes down) • Profile - graphical depiction of an individuals MMPI scores on the clinical and validity scales § Plot the scores from the clinical scales to create profile INTEGRATION OF ASSESSMENT OF DATA • Need to put it in to some kind of cohesive assessment • Try to come to an understanding and diagnoses • Then you will come up with the best treatment plan DSM:DiagnosticandStatisticalManuel TWO MAJOR PSYCHIATRIC CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM • International classification of disease system (ICD) o Created by the world organization o Typically used in other countries, not the US • Diagnostic and statistical manual (DSM-5) o Written by the APA o Used in the United States as the standard o DSM-5 came out in May 2013 --> goals was to make them more similar • Similar in many ways, but different in others BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DSM • DSM-1 o Came out in 1952 • DSM-2 (1960's) o Updated it but not a significant amount • DSM-3 (1980's) o Introduced a number of new methodological changes • Came up with explicit diagnostic criteria for each disease in the DSM • Introduced multiaxial system for diagnosis - included 5 different axes • More descriptive; a-theoretical --> not based on any theory --> strictly identifies facts • DSM-3-R (1987) • DSM-4 (1990's) • DSM-4-TR (2000's) • DSM-5 (2013) o Did away with the multiaxial system of classification o Added psychological disorders o Took away psychological disorders o Rearranged categories of psychological disorders MAJOR DIAGNOSTIC CATEGORIES o Includes 22 major diagnostic categories, organized across the lifespan • Early in life (neurodevelopmental disorders)(ex: learning disorders, ADHD) --> adolescence and young adulthood (depressive disorders) --> later in life (neurocognitive disorders)(ex: Alzheimer's) • One of these categories, called Other Conditions That May Be A Focus of Clinical Attention includes conditions that do not constitute a disorder but may be the focus in clinical practice (ex: someone who lost a parent who just needs someone to talk to and benefit from talking to a counselor [not a psychological disorder because we expect someone who loses someone close to them to be upset and grieving]) o Non-axial documentation of diagnosis TYPES OF INFORMATION INCLUDED IN THE DSM-5 • Diagnostic criteria - guidelines for making diagnoses o Individual has to meet all the diagnostic criteria to be diagnosed with a disease • If the individual is meeting most of the criteria but not all, they can be diagnosed with "unspecified (disorder)" - catch-all's for people that you don't know what to do with them § Very common in personality disorders o A person can be diagnosed with more than one diagnosis (ex: schizophrenia, learning disability, and paranoia --> more than one is possible) o Gender differences, age of onset, prognosis, etc. • Subtypes - variants of the same disorder o Not all disorders have subtypes, but many do (ex: ADHD - predominantly inattentive/hyperactive, impulsive/or combined presentation) • Specifiers - indications of the severity, course, and/or the descriptive features of the disorder o Severity - mild, moderate, severity o Course - in partial remission o Descriptive features - with peripartum onset • Associated features - relevant clinical and physical features associated with the diagnosis o Not needed to be present to get the diagnosis • Prevalence -available information on the frequency of the disorder • Development and course - typical patterns in both the onset and evolution of the disorder o Onset - when the disorder most typically begins (ex: most typical time of onset for depressive disorder is mid-20s) o Prognosis - Remission? Continually disintegrating? Waxing and waning? • Risk factors - factors that put an individual at risk for developing a disorder o Temperamental - part of our personality that may be inherited; temperament - individuals way of approaching or reacting to a situation o Environmental - all of those that are non-genetic; occur either while still inside the mother's womb or after the child is born o Genetic and physiological - genetic - inborn influences • Gender-related diagnostic issues - relationship of gender and the development of the disorder (ex: autism is more common in boys) o Also will include different symptom patterns that we see between males and females • Functional consequences - consequences of a disorder on the overall functioning of the individual • Differential diagnosis - comparison of similar disorders so as to assign the best dianosis NONAXIAL DOCUMENTATION OF DIAGNOSIS • How it used to be o Axis 1 - clinical syndromes o Axis 2 - personality disorders and/or intellectual disability o Axis 3 - medical condition o Axis 4 - overall functioning o Axis 5 - psychosocial stresses • How it is now o Instead of axes, you just make a list • Still uses the same information as before o Basically, just not organized in the same way
