Most psychologists today agree that it is important to look at the biological, psychological, and social factors that are involved with the etiology and treatment of mental disorders. The Diathesis-Stress model proposes that genetic and/or psychological vulnerabilities, combined with individual or environmental stressors, leads to distress and/or dysfunction and the possible development of psychological disorders.

For this assignment, you will select two of the disorders we have discussed in Lessons 2, 3, and 4 (e.g. generalized anxiety disorder, anorexia nervosa, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, etc.) and discuss the following.

  1. Symptomology – Give a thorough description of the specific characteristics of two (2) disorders.
  2. Etiology – Discuss the etiology of the disorders from a diathesis-stress model perspective.  Include biological, psychological, and environmental factors that contribute to the development of the disorder.
