Theories of Maladaptive Behavior
Locate at least two peer-reviewed scholarly articles in the Keiser online library that demonstrate how the biological theory explains etiology in two different mental illnesses. Answer the following questions about each different mental illness:
a) What are the specific biological mechanisms associated with each diagnosis?
b) How would each diagnosis be explained by a major psychological theory other than biological theory (e.g., cognitive-behavioral)?
c) Could each disorder be better understood by the combination of both biological theory and another perspective? If not, why not? If so, which other perspective is best? Why?
