Psychological Disorders
Psychological disorders cover a wide range of disorders such a neuroses, psychoses, and personality disorders. The majority of psychological disorders are controlled using a combination of medications and psychotherapy. If the student self-discloses to the instructor, it may be appropriate to discuss problems and side effects associated with medications. Only a limited number of court cases have been conducted to set precedents for reasonable accomodations for students with any of these disorders. Based on court rulings on other types of disabilities it is probably that some of the following accomodations may be considered appropriate and reasonable.
Accommodations may include:
  • extended time for exams, quiet testing area with a proctor
  • notetakers, readers, or tape recorders in class
  • seating arrangements that enhance the learning experience of the student
  • incompletes or late withdrawals in place of course failures in the event of prolonged illness
  • assistance with time management and study skills
  • encouragement to use relaxation and stress reducing techniques during exams
  • flexibility in the attendance requirements in case of health-related absences.

Classification and Models of Disorder Psychological disorders have been variously regarded as discrete categories of abnormality or deviations along continuously variable dimensions. Importantly, the latter suggests two alternatives: That it is only deviation beyond a certain critical threshold that constitutes disorder, with variation existing into the normal population, or that dimensions only exist within categories of disorder, roughly corresponding to the severity of disorder. Neither a completely categorical nor a completely dimensional method of classification of psychological disorders is entirely satisfactory. Discuss. American Psychiatric Association (1994).

MENTAL/psychological disorders AND REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS The ADAdefines “mental impairment” as any mental or psychological
Guidelines for Reasonable Accommodations and Disabilities (GRAD) Introduction ADA Compliance Unit Armstrong Injunction Requirements BPT Legal Authority ... Conclusion MENTAL/PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS AND REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS: The ADA defines “mental impairment” as any mental or psychological disorder, such as emotional or mental illness, which includes:
  • manic depression, major depression, bipolar disorder, most anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and personality disorders found in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV).
Mental illness is not the same as mental retardation. The two are distinct disorders. A diagnosis of mental retardation is chiefly characterized by limitations in intellectual functioning, as well as difficulties with certain skills of daily life. By definition, mental retardation begins before the age of 18. In effective communication, approach each inmate/parolee with an open mind and about his/her strengths and abilities. Effective communication may be achieved by using basic communication skills in a patient, respectful, dignified manner, avoiding big words or complicated concepts.

Psychological Disorders Recent studies demonstrate the profound role one’s conscious and unconscious attitudes play in the onset of and recovery from disease. The immune system is strengthened by such feelings as optimism, love, and hope. At the same time, it is evident that it can be weakened by fear, guilt, anger, and depression. For the best possible outcome in treating health conditions, we strongly recommend our healing mind-body assessment program by Peter. S. Reznik , CSW, PhD.. To reach and engage deeper levels of the self, Reiki is a mind-body modality that can help one to heal both body and spirit. If you have any questions, you can e-mail Sandra M. Davis , RM, IARP at:

    Hysteria People with high Tamas and Rajas are susceptible to mental disorders especially when faced with aggravating factors such as grief, fear, excessive worry etc. When mental unrest becomes becomes severe, a person ceases to be able to function normally in everyday life. This leads to nervous exhaustion and breakdown or serious disorders such as insanity, delusion, psychosis and schizophrenia. Ayurvedic treatment focuses on increasing the Sattva quality in the mind and reducing Rajas and Tamas . To increase Sattva a sense of trust must be developed with the practicioner along with assurance and proper guidance, with the aim of increasing positivity and re-affirming ideas at each step. Specific herbal formulas are prescribed which detoxify and clear any blockages that may be present in the subtle channels of the brain as well as rejuvenating and strengthening the mind. Anxiety neurosis With the stresses and strains of modern life, most people are suffering some form of tension at a mental level. This may be expressed by such emotions as depression, anxiety, irratability, insecurity or a general feeling of disatisfaction with life. The presence of psychological disorders indicate that we have lost touch with our inner spirit. The spirit, or soul is the source of our creativity, joy and enthusiasm for life. Without this connection we are like a ship without a rudder, unable to find our way to true happiness and contentment.

    73. Historical Treatment Of Psychological Disorders
    Historical Treatment of psychological disorders As a result, the history of thetreatment of psychological disorders and insanity makes a grim story.
    Historical Treatment of Psychological Disorders For centuries, supposedly "civilized" societies looked upon psychologically disturbed humans as subhumans, to be tortured or locked away and forgotten. As a result, the history of the treatment of psychological disorders and insanity makes a grim story. For hundreds of years insanity was associated with the supernatural, and the psychologically disturbed were thought to be possessed by demons or the devil. One "cure" that dates back to the Stone Age involves cutting a hole in the patient's skull to let out the evil spirits. In Europe, during the 17th and 18th centuries hundreds of thousands of persons were tortured to "bring them to their senses." If that did not work, they were burned or hanged.
    In 1793, during the French Revolution, Philippe Pinel brought about a startling new reform at the Bicˆtre Asylum in Paris. He released the patients from their iron chains and called for "wiser and more moderate restraints." He reported that a number of previously violent patients, once freed of chains, became relaxed and talked quite agreeably with officials. Although he was not the first to do so, Pinel attempted to classify the different types of psychological disturbances and to suggest that different forms of insanity required different types of treatment. He showed the importance of keeping case histories and approaching each patient as worthy of individual treatment.
    A major breakthrough for the mentally ill in the United States came in 1909 when Clifford W. Beers founded the National Committee for Mental Hygiene. Its purpose was to improve conditions in mental hospitals, encourage psychiatric research, enlarge the facilities for the care of the mentally ill, and make the public more aware of mental health.

    Psychological Disorders Associated with Serial Killers Psychological Disorders are illnesses that affect millions of people worldwide. They can range from Clinical Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder, to Schizophrenia and Tourettes's Disorder. The American Psychiatric Association has published five editions of what is called the Diagnostical and Statistical Manual. This specific manual defines all recognized disorders; and their symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and associated demographic information. Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder- The essential feature of this disorder is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity impulsivity that is more frequent and severe than is typically observed in individuals at the same level of development. This is seen in academic, occupational, and social situations. In the case of serial killers, the most prominent type is of an attention deficit, therefore we will focus on this type. There is a significant amount of evidence correlating behavioral and cognitive disfunction in young adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). These individuals are commonly referred to psychiatrists for treatment of psychopathy and rage. DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Attention Deficit Disorder Antisocial Personality Disorder (also called psychopath or sociopath)- There are two underlying characteristics of people with this disorder: general disregard for others and repeated violation of the rights of others. Two central features that interplay with these characteristics are deceit and manipulation. These patterns usually begin in childhood or early adolescence and continue into adulthood. Antisocial personality disorder is also referred to as psychopathy, sociopathy, or dyssocial personality disorder. **NOTE: There is a general misconception that antisocial means someone who is withdrawn and doesn't want to socialize, however this is not the correct meaning.
