The term “psychopathology” simply refers to the scientific study of mental illness, along with the factors which may contribute or be relevant to such disorders.
The determination of mental health conditions is guided by The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which identifies the criteria that must be present in order for mental health practitioners to come to a specific diagnosis.
Causes of mental disorders may fall under various categories such as psychological, social or genetic. The field also examines mental conditions across the lifespan, developmental stages and manifestations, examining the treatments that are effective in treating various manifestations.
Psychopathology is the scientific study of the nature of disease and its causes, processes, development, and consequences.
When it comes to making a diagnosis, there are four themes, or abnormalities, that are considered. These themes are known as “The Four D’s.” They are deviance, distress, dysfunction and anger. These four criteria define the concept of abnormality.
