21. General Psychology
Collection of articles for use in an introductory college course. Topics include neuropsychology, sensation and perception, learning and memory, emotion, language, personality, and psychological disorders.
Dr. C. George Boeree
Shippensburg University
Welcome to the General Psychology e-text! These pages were originally created for the students of my General Psychology classes at Shippensburg University. They deal with most of the issues covered in standard textbooks, but without the outrageous price tags. Psychology is the study of the mind, along with such aspects of mind as perception, cognition, emotion, and behavior. In some ways, it has only been around since the late 1800's, when people like Wilhelm Wundt, William James, and Sigmund Freud separated it from its various mother disciplines such as biology, philosophy, and medicine. But in other ways, it has been around as long as human beings have been discussing human beings. I suspect that cavemen and cavewomen probably sat around the fire talking about the same things we do: How come their kids are weird, why can't men and women get along better, what's with those folks from the next valley, how come old Zook hasn't been the same since that rock hit him, and what do dreams really mean. Today, psychology tries to be a science. Science is the effort to study a subject with an explicit promise to think as logically and stick to the empirical facts as tightly as is humanly possible. Other sciences chemistry, physics, biology, and so on have had great success this way. Our cave-person ancestors would be astounded at our understanding of the world around us! But the subject matter of psychology (and the other human sciences) is harder to pin down. We human beings are not as cooperative as some green goo in a test tube! It is a nearly impossible situation: To study the very thing that studies, to research the researcher, to psychoanalyze the psychoanalyst.

    What Is a Psychological Disorder?
    A psychological disorder, also known as a mental disorder, is a pattern of behavioral or psychological symptoms that impact multiple life areas and/or create distress for the person experiencing these symptoms. zSB(3,3)
    How are Psychological Disorders Diagnosed?
    The classification and diagnosis is an important concern for both mental health providers and mental health clients. While there is no single, definitive definition of mental disorders, a number of different classification and diagnostic criteria have emerged. Clinicians utilize the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV TR), published by the American Psychiatric Association, to determine whether a set of symptoms or behaviors meets the criteria for diagnosis as a psychological disorder. The International Classification of Diseases (ICD-16), published by the World Health Organization, is also frequently used.

    In these notes I discuss the psychological disorders: their classification and reclassification, behavioral "symptoms," and, in selected cases where something is known about it, heritability and underlying physiological changes.
    Classification of the Psychological Disorders
    Such labels can be very helpful to practitioners. They make it relatively easy to communicate the major features of a person's disorder to other practioners, as everyone in the field knows what sorts of abnormalities a person diagnosed, for example, as "schizophrenic" is likely to display. And once a person has been identified as having a particular disorder, this immediately suggests which treatments are likely to be the most beneficial to the client. On the negative side, however, it is too easy to label someone as "a schizoprenic" and forget that one is dealing with an individual human being and not merely a collection of symptoms. Furthermore, nonspecialists soon learned that to be labeled a schizophrenic, manic-depressive, or psychpathic personality was not exactly an honor, and as the general public became more familiar with the typical symptoms of the various disorders, they tended to use them as stereotypes, as if everyone with the label "schizophrenic" exhibited the entire set of symptoms in their most extreme forms. Developing category labels for these disorders may have been necessary, but it did not always have positive consequences for those who were being pinned with the label.

    Unipolar Depression
    All of us experience dejection from time to time, but only some experience unipolar depression. Normal dejection is seldom so severe as to influence daily functioning significantly or to persist very long. Such downturns in mood can even be beneficial. Periods spent in contemplation can lead us to explore our inner strength, our values, and our way of life, and we often emerge with a sense of greater strength, clarity, and resolve. Clinical depression, on the other hand, has no redeeming characteristics. It brings severe and long lasting psychological pain that may intensity as time goes by. Those who suffer from it may lose their will to carry out the simplest of life's activities; some even lose their will to live. There are two kinds of Unipolar Depression.

    A Tribute to Hope
    When our son was about fourteen, we began to see signs of problems. His grades fell, he no longer played sports, he hung out with kids who got in trouble. We tried to cope by talking with him, giving him rewards and punishments, and sending him to a counselor. Astonishingly, we considered ourselves well informed about kids and drugs, and we did not think that was the problem! Things got worse. There was evidence of drinking and drug use, but we thought these were just occasional episodes. Our son promised not to use again. We tried a different high school. Then we tried another different high school. At last we became convinced that drugs were a significant part of the problem. We took our son to a hospital and signed him in. A week later we took him home. Then we went to the Hope Institute. Yes, the family had to be involved three nights per week, just like the kids. Over two years we learned a lot more about drug abuse, and our family learned to talk together better. Our son's downhill slide stopped. He graduated high school. We were cautiously hopeful.

    According to Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General , mental disorders are “health conditions that are characterized by alterations in thinking, mood, or behavior (or some combination thereof) associated with distress and/or impaired functioning.” About 15 percent of the U.S. adult population use some form of mental health service in any year. Having a psychological disorder does not necessarily mean a person has a disability, yet in many cases the condition is severe enough to be disabling.
    The following are descriptions of some of the more prominent psychological disorders and the impact they can have in the workplace, including effects of common medications taken for the conditions.

    Depression is one of the most common and most serious mental health problems facing people today. This year, more than 19 million American adults (9.5% of the population) will suffer from this disorder. Major depression is manifested by a combination of symptoms that interfere with the ability to work, study, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities.
    While the severity and number of symptoms vary from person to person, they can include the following: a persistent sad mood; loss of interest or pleasure in activities that were once enjoyed; significant change in appetite or body weight; difficulty sleeping or oversleeping; physical slowing or agitation; loss of energy; feelings of worthlessness or inappropriate guilt; difficulty thinking or concentrating; and recurrent thoughts of death or suicide.

    Psychological Disorders
    A psychological disorder is a mental health condition that disrupts the normal feelings, mood, or ability of one person to interact with others. A psychological disorder may be caused by genetic or inherited characteristics, or it may result from environmental factors. Psychological disorders are distinct from physical illnesses or injury, although a physical condition may be a contributing factor to the progress of a psychological condition. A healthy relationship between mind and body is fundamental to optimal athletic performance. Any disturbance in the equilibrium between physical and mental performance will usually create a cause and effect relationship: impaired mental health will lead inexorably to an equivalent physical result. A body of science, sport psychology, has grown dramatically in recent years as the demand to better understand the mind/body relationship in all sports has increased. There are common psychological disorders that influence athletic performance. These conditions are not limited to sports, but are frequently the source of problems for athletes. Some of the disorders are interrelated in that they may occur concurrently in the athlete. Others exist alone, but are found to arise when more generalized factors such as the mental stress of competition also exist. The athletic environment is a fertile breeding ground for many disorders, as traditionally, an athlete who failed to maintain the level of training or competitive skills due to psychological reasons was perceived as weak and unsuited to high-level sports. For this reason, athletes would often keep secret any psychological problems they found themselves experiencing.

    Psychological disorders cover a wide range of disorders such as neuroses, psychoses, and personality disorders. The majority of psychological disorders are controlled using a combination of medications and psychotherapy. If the student self-discloses to the instructor, it may be appropriate to discuss problems and side effects associated with medications. Only a limited number of court cases have been conducted to set precedents for reasonable accommodations for students with any of these disorders. Based on court rulings on other types of disabilities it is probably that some of the following accommodations may be considered appropriate and reasonable.
