Summary
What is abnormality? Using the case studies of two young women-one who has depression, one who has an anxiety disorder-as a springboard, this program presents three psychological perspectives on mental disorder. Section one considers it as a bodily disease, identifying underlying assumptions of the biomedical model and illustrating the treatments it offers. Section two looks at it as a disease of the mind, developing the view that the origins of some mental disorders may lie in people's experiences. And section three outlines the basis of the constructionist perspective and the idea that mental disorder is socially defined. The increasing medicalization of behavior is also addressed
