Posted by Sassy on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 at 3:38pm.

Can any one let me know if I matched these up together correctly, and if not what ones should I redo? Thank you in advance.


Models of Abnormality

Psychologists use several different models to explain abnormal behavior. These different models have created shifts in values and beliefs as well as improvements in clinical research. These differences in ideas mean that the different models are sometimes in conflict with one another. People who follow one model often point out where another model fails in its interpretations, investigations, and treatment methods.
