Question and answer
Q: List and briefly describe the six definitions of abnormal behavior
A: What is Abnormal? Before we can write about specific behavioral disorders, we must define 'abnormal'. And what is normal behavior? The following criteria are used to determine wheter a persons behavior is abnormal or not: 1.Deviation from statistical norms;the word abnormal means 'away from the norm'. Many population facts are measured such as height, weight and intelligence. 2.Deviation
from social norms; every vulture has certain standards for acceptable behavior; 3.Maladaptiveness of behavior; this third criterium is how the behavior affects the well-being of the individual and/or social group. 4.Personal distress; the fourth criterium considers abnormality in terms of the individual's subjective feelings, personal distress, rather than his behavior.
