psychological disorder 11

The case of Emily Fox Gordon tells us a lot about psychological disorders. They can strike anyone, they can lead to dangerous or frightening situations, they can lead people to feel isolated and alone, but in some instances they can be overcome. Some of Emily’s behaviors, such as attempting suicide or attacking a classmate, clearly reflect a disturbed mind. Other behaviors, such as going into a rage or being promiscuous, are maladaptive but they don’t necessarily reflect a psychological disorder.

What separates a person who has a psychological disorder from one who doesn’t? Do you think a clear distinction can be made, why or why not?
