Irene has experienced physical problems because her life has been disrupted by environment changes and constraints. She complains of headaches, sleep problems, and poor relationships. Her condition can best be explained by which viewpoint?
- The biopsychosocial model
- The psychosomatic hypothesis
- The hoeostasis mechanism
- The indirect stress model
Abnormal Psychology -
Since you are taking into account the environmental changes, the biopsychosocial model would most applicable. The stress seems to be direct, and she does not seem to be maintaining homeostasis. Psychosomatic hypothesis does not take the environmental changes into account.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
