Abnormal Psychology part 1

What is “Crazy?” – there is no such thing

What is “Insanity?” – Legal term, not medical

So, what makes someone No-Longer-Normal? 3 things:

1. The behaviour must be unusual

2. The behaviour Must be dysfunctional

The person does it, but it is NOT helpful to them in any way.

3. The behaviour MUST be unjustifiable

When you ask them why they do this, they can’t explain.

There is no 4th but if there was, it might be that the behaviour is consistent; it occurs more often than not and usually on a daily / weekly basis. Abnormal behaviour does not occur just “once in a while.”
