PSY645Week6IA.png As a scholarly member of the psychological community, you will be expected to engage in philosophical conversations on the nature of psychopathology and changes in the mind. This interactive assignment is an opportunity to have a philosophical conversation with your instructor and classmates on positive psychology and the nature of psychological suffering. For your posts in this forum, you will follow the instructions provided to you in the instructor guidance for this week. As a class, you will judge and comment on the use of diagnostic manuals and handbooks including how they may limit our understanding of psychopathology. Guided Response: The goal of this discussion is to have a single, dynamic, and respectful conversation about positive psychology and the nature of psychological suffering, not a series of 20 to 30 separate conversations. This means that every post should be in response to another student’s post, creating one long thread. Only start a new discussion thread if you want to address an entirely different theme or question(s) within the discussion subject area. Additionally, only post after first carefully reviewing your colleagues’ posts within the thread. Review several of your colleagues’ posts. Post at least twice by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful interactive discourse in this forum. Each of your responses to your peers should include a summary of the thoughts presented by your colleague as well as your evaluation of your colleague’s comments in a manner that contributes to the further understanding of the various phenomena under consideration. Simple agree and/or disagree statements are insufficient to be counted as a response. When presenting your opinion, be certain to cite relevant references which support your claims. Do not repeat what your classmates have already stated, and do not ignore them if they ask you questions. Any questions asked of you must be answered, including questions from your instructor. Try to keep the conversation moving forward by presenting options, insights, alternative ideas on and/or interpretations of the topics and research. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) on Day 7 of the week and be sure to answer any questions your colleagues pose to you. Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.

Addicts, agoraphobics, compulsive pilferers, psychotics, obsessives, and even psychopathic serial killers, are altogether purportedly subject to compelling wants that propel the individual to act. Philosophy is not new to the fact of psychopathology as rendering a man weak even with its requests. Most likely, pop culture takes a comparative perspective of numerous mental issues. The essential point of this paper is to contend that this origination of psychopathology is false, and, in this manner, to offer an observationally and clinically educated comprehension of disarranges of organization, as I might call these conditions, where center indications or keeping up variables of the confusion incorporate activities and exclusions Michael Fara posits psychopathic serial murderers are powerless to prevent themselves from killing, just as an addict is powerless to prevent himself or herself from using drugs, is, to put it bluntly, shocking. We should pause, and ask ourselves some flat-footed questions. How is it possible to conceive of murder in this way? How could a person not be able to stop themselves intentionally killing someone else? How could murder be an action a person is powerless to prevent? Positive brain research supplements instead of replaces conventional treatment, in which objectives incorporate knowing yourself better, facilitating enthusiastic agony and disarray, and growing better methods for adapting. While you work to diminish undesirable musings or practices, there is a question of why not have a go at building bliss also. Pain can be portrayed as penetrating, boring, copying, pounding, throbbing, stinging, pressing, et cetera. Each of the descriptors suggests the nearness of a weapon or weapon-like protest that can harm the body—the bore that penetrates, the discharge that copies. Individuals with mental torment utilize the exceptionally same similitudes to portray their encounters. A bereaved man who lost his wife after a home invasion that saw the wife rapped by the six-man gang can be traumatized by such events for a long time. He can remain quiet for so long by the crippling torment of misfortune, but in the end when he opens up to a specialist, he will have a broken spirit and a change psychologically. He can offer an explanation on what he feels, he can say it felt like a bomb, he clarified, that detonated within him, devastating everything in his body. In pain, we feel as if there must be some weapon-like object like a bomb that is moving toward and threatening us; that when it strikes, it will injure, possibly even destroy us; and that we must get away from it or shield ourselves at all costs. Even when there is nothing coming at us, when there is no injury, when we remain motionless, we feel the movement, the injury and the desire to run. Whatever happens that makes us feel these things—the loss of a loved one or the physical destruction of cancer—we experience pain. References Krishnamurti Online (Producer). (1982, April 16).
