Choose one of the options below to research and explore:
Although psychological disorders are universal, there are cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic influences related to diagnosis, assessment, and treatment. Using research from academic journal articles, what ethnic, cultural, and/or socioeconomic factors may prevent individuals from minority and immigrant groups from seeking and receiving accurate treatment and diagnosis for mental disorders? Based upon your research, how may these disparities be addressed? Are there differences in what is considered “abnormal” behavior dependent upon cultural factors?
Review the different perspectives on causal factors under each of the five main current paradigms in psychopathology as presented in Chapter 2: Genetic, Neuroscience, Cognitive-Behavioral, Sociocultural, and Diathesis-Stress Model.
Choose ONE of the disorders listed below. Then, choose TWO of the paradigms listed above to compare and contrast how an individual may develop the disorder. Explain which research-based etiology you find to be the most convincing in identifying the likely elements of causation and why.

Substance Use Related Disorders
Anti-Social Personality Disorder (ASPD)
