In this activity you will explore the contemporary approaches used to understand, treat, and prevent psychological disorders. Although psychologists may blend concepts from more than one approach, each approach represents a distinct view of the central issues in psychology.

To begin, you will learn about these approaches and their unique perspectives on human nature and psychological disturbance. Then, you will put each into practice for a common psychological disorder.

Begin by exploring the different approaches.
