- Curriculum Connections Psychology: Abnormal Psychology
This book describes the scientific study of psychological disorders. As well as detailing mental disorders, it examines social attitudes toward them and treatments that have been used through the centuries. Other important issues covered include the way in which the number and type of recognized mental disorders constantly changes, and how psychological difficulties affect a child's learning and social experiences.
- Mental Health: Topic Page
Mental health was once defined as the psychological state that exists in the absence of mental illness. Contemporary social scientific thought, however, has abandoned the view that mental health and mental illness are antithetical to one another. Now, lack of mental illness no longer simply implies the presence of mental health, just as lack of mental health no longer suggests the presence of mental illness. Thus, the term mental health refers to a social psychological state greater than the mere absence of mental illness. Moreover, some scholars suggest that mental health can be present in individuals diagnosed with mental illness, a position that lends greater support to the view that mental health and mental illness ought not to be treated as oppositional categories.
- Mental Retardation: Topic Page
Mental retardation is below average level of intellectual functioning, usually defined by an IQ of below 70 to 75, combined with limitations in the skills necessary for daily living.
