Defining Normal and Abnormal
At this stage in your study of human psychology, you might be wondering, “I can often recognize what I consider to be abnormal behavior, so why is it so difficult to define?” As you found in this week’s assigned reading, some of the issues involved in distinguishing abnormal from normal behavior are complex and fraught with controversy. Additionally, the definition of abnormal behavior can change with time.
Post a comparison of normal and abnormal behavior, drawing from your original definition of abnormal behavior and from the definitions put forth in your learning. Include any challenges you might see in using these definitions to guide the assessment of your clients in a clinical setting. 500 word minimum, 3 primary source cites, APA ONLY,
