Transcript of 05.01 History of Psychological Disorders

How does culture affect the identification and treatment of psychological disorders? Be sure to define culture and provide an example in your response.
Culture is a set of ideas and beliefs shared among groups of people. Every culture has what they consider to be the norm. Regarding psychological disorders, culture does affect the identification and treatment of such disorders. For example, dissociative identity disorder in most cultures is considered a "wacky American fad". This causes the disorder to not to be acknowledged in many cultures which results in patients not being treated properly.
Explain one strategy to reduce the stigma associated with seeking treatment for a psychological disorder.
To prevent the negative stigma associated with seeking help for a psychological disorder the person should gain a better understanding of their own disorder. By doing so they can get the appropriate help needed and realize that they have nothing to be ashamed about. Also, by seeing other people go through the same problems it can help reduce the stigma too because it makes them feel as though they aren't the only ones.
