=====================================
Learning Targets:
1. The (DSM) Diagnosis and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders is the handbook used by mental health professionals to diagnose psychiatric disorders.
2. There are many types of disorders, but they all involve debilitation that makes routine life situations difficult.
3. Schizophrenia is not dissociate identity disorder. It is a disorder that involves a break with reality and auditory hallucinations.
4. Personality disorders are the most difficult disorders to diagnose and treat. The most common treatment is anti-psychotic medication (most have side effects).
5. Medication is effective as a treatment, but it is often combined with a form of “talk therapy” to provide a more complete therapeutic technique.
6. Behavioral & cognitive therapists are very popular forms of “talk therapy.”
7. Original Freudian therapy, though well known, is not utilized much anymore. However, psycho-dynamic techniques are combined with many methods to help patients and can be very helpful. 

Essential Questions:
- What are the various approaches to dealing with abnormal behavior, psychological disorders?
- Is all psych disorder caused by biological issues? Can they be solved medically?
