generally conceptualize people with mental illness? What are some common stereotypes of this
population? How does the media portray people with mental illness? (Film, news reports, etc.). Why do
you think the media portrays people with MI (mental illness) as violent, when the exact opposite is
much more accurate? What is stigma, and how could/does it affect people within this population?

Question 4740 Defining Abnormal Psychology

Read the following article in the link then answer the following questions: It mirrors some of the
content with Chapter 1 regarding the definition and parameters of abnormal psychology. Reaction?
What do you think of the parameter of “violation of socially accepted standards”? This idea allows us to
start to understand that what we consider as “abnormal” is a socially, culturally, historically, and
politically-constructed concept. What is an example of a behavior that is considered normal in this
country but completely abnormal in another country? What about the opposite (normal in another
country but completely “strange” in this country)? Describe someone that you would characterize as
“abnormal”. What are they like? What sort of traits, characteristics and/or behaviors do they have? Why
do you feel that these traits are “abnormal”? (Think about the culture of your own mindset and what
YOU consider to be normal behavior). What would need to change within these traits for you to
consider this person to be “normal”? Please answer every question separately.

Question 4741 Overview of Models of Abnormality

Consider this scenario: A friend comes to you depressed and talks about how “lousy” a person she is.

exercised, which she usually does, and hasn’t gone out with friends. Your friend describes difficulty
sleeping and studying and generally feels physically unwell. You also know that she has had a great deal
of difficulty with her family, and you suspect she may have been emotionally abused. She tells you she’s
going nowhere, that she can’t do anything, that she has no future, and that no one will ever love her.
What do you say to your friend? Consider the following issues: – how your friend thinks about herself

and her future (cognitive perspective) – What she does and doesn’t do (i.e. she is isolated and is not
getting any exercise) (behavioral perspective) – She might have a neurochemical imbalance or physical
disorder of the brain (biological perspective) – Her problem might stem from her past and perhaps she is
not even aware of it (psychodynamic perspective) – She should realize what a good person she is and
that she has the potential to be anything (humanistic perspective) Discuss these various viewpoints in
terms of this case. Based on your own perspective (your personal theoretical orientation that you
subscribe to, what do you tell her to do?

this discussion you will take on the role of a clinical psychologist treating clients for depression. You are
interested in doing research on effective treatments for a chronic form of depression called dysthymia.
In the DSM-5, it is referred to as persistent depressive disorder. The DSM-5 is listed in your
recommended resources, and details regarding the disorder can be found in section 300.4(F34.1). In
your review of the current materials, you find that most of the previous research on this disorder has
been done using quantitative methods. Identify an aspect of this topic you feel should be studied using
qualitative methods. Apply the scientific method to this research issue and develop a specific research
question. Compare the characteristics and appropriate uses of various qualitative research designs and
choose an appropriate qualitative design for this research question. Create a feasible research design

Question 4757 Joe is a 45 year-old Caucasian married male living in rural New Jersey

Consider the following case: Joe is a 45 year-old Caucasian married male living in rural New Jersey. He
had a relatively stable childhood and joined the Army at 18. He spent 6 years in the military which
included one deployment overseas where he was involved in active combat. He was discharged at age
24 and married his long-term girlfriend. They currently have 2 children, ages 15 & 12. He currently works
in sales and marketing and reports that his relationship with his wife has been somewhat rocky lately
and he feels that their connection “just isn’t what it used to be”. Joe came into your office today at the
urging of his wife. For the 2 months, he has been having nightmares of his days in combat. He hasn’t
been sleeping well because of it. He also has experienced periodic bouts of anxiety and feeling “like [he]
just couldn’t sit still. He describes his memories of his combat days in vivid detail, and he has spoken about feeling like was reliving the situation. He also reports that he gets “jumpy” at loud noises and they
sometimes give him an “anxiety attack”. This is the first time (within the past 2 months) that Joe has
experienced these symptoms. He is afraid that he is “going crazy”. He also reported that he hasn’t been
to a doctor for a checkup in over 3 years, and that he is worried about his status at work because their
sales were down for the last year and the company had started to lay people off. He is worried that he
will not be able to provide for his family if he is laid off . “What kind of man would I be if I lost my job
and had to go on unemployment?” Discuss the following: – What might be happening for Joe? Explain
the possibilities of causal factors from a Biological, Cognitive, Sociocultural perspective (considering the
impact of family, culture of veterans, the culture of being male, etc.) – What role are these stressors
playing in his life? Are they exacerbating the symptoms of PTSD, or is it the other way around (The PTSD
symptoms influencing his negative view on the current status of his life)? – Explain the effects of stress
on a person’s physical and psychological functioning. (You may have to do some additional research for this).

Question 4758 Depression

This Discussion Thread has 2 parts: 1. Consider the following articles- Biological bases of depression
symptoms: What
is your reaction to this material as it relates to depression treatment? If further research on depression
continues to indicate biological causal factors, how will that impact how society views the disorder?
How would this impact treatment strategies? 2. Presently, one of the main ways we treat depression is
through anti-depressant medications. Currently research is showing, however, that some anti-
depressants are not as effective as they were once thought to be, and some are proving to be actually
ineffective! Here are a couple articles about alternative methods of treating depression: In the times that you or someone you know
has experienced depression, what coping strategies have you used to combat it? What has worked?
What hasn’t worked? In your view, what is the best method for treating depression?

Question 4759 Discussion post

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapters 1 and 2 of the Hesse-Biber e-book, Mixed
Methods Research: Merging Theory with Practice, and the two required articles for this week. Mixed
methods is a current popular methodology. While this type of methodology is useful for some studies,
because of its dual nature as both quantative and qualitative, it is not effective or appropriate for all
research. For this discussion, you will consider the use of mixed methods for the topic you have chosen
for your Research Proposal. In your initial post, apply the scientific method to your research topic by
defining your research question and determining the method(s) necessary to answer that question.
Compare the characteristics and appropriate uses of the different methods and explain if your research
question could best be answered through qualitative or quantitative methods, or a mix of both. Identify
the dominant method (quantitative or qualitative) for your proposed study. Explain whether or not a
mixed methods approach is the best way to study the topic, demonstrating that the second method is
not added as an afterthought or merely to impress journal editors who favor mixed methods. If you have decided not to use mixed methods, explain why the study is best completed with either a
quantitative or qualitative focus. Justify your design choice and support your position with scholarly
sources. Include a discussion explaining how you would apply ethical principles to your design to address
concerns which may impact your research.

Question 4760 Writing an Article Critique

Writing an Article Critiqué In APA Style – REQUIRED BODY OF PAPER The Introduction should be
