Question Description

Each of your written assignments must be a minimum of 850-900 words (usually will

amount to 2 ½ pages, or so). They must be typed, double spaced, 12 pt. font, with 1 inch

margins. Put your name and the date in the top, right corner, on the first 2 lines (single

spaced), then double-space, and start your paper. Remember, 5 points will be deducted for

each day the paper is late, and if you did not follow the above directions. Papers are to be

submitted, in hard copy, in class, on the due date.

Here is the question: Are we ‘pathologizing’ everyday life? Does the trend to include more and more disorders in

successive editions of the DSM mean that people who need help are more likely to receive

clinical attention? Or, are we expanding the boundaries of mental disorders to the point where

almost any behavior has the potential to be considered abnormal?

Boundaries of Mental Disorders
Pathology is a branch in the field of medicine that deals with the origin, the causes as
well as the nature of various illnesses. It involves examining organs, tissues, autopsies, and fluids
within the body with the aim of studying and diagnosing a certain disease. Normality is a state at
which a person can be said to be typical or usual. In the context of mental illness, a mentally
normal person is one who is in a state that can be described as usual and not showing any
unexpected behavior. In today’s world, there are a lot of cases that have been termed as mental
disorders. Most of these conditions had not been put under the category of mental illnesses
sometime back and most people feel that there is an overdiagnosis and the health realm is
pathologizing behaviors that can be categorized as normal in our everyday lives. The following
paper looks into Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental wellness (DSM), the scientific
concepts that the DSM is based on and its utility, as well as, the boundaries that divide a
pathology and normality.
