Disorder a state of mental/ behavioral ill health
Patterns collection of symptoms that tend to go together
Distress and Dysfunction symptoms sufficiently severe to interfere with one's daily life and well being.
Deviant differing from the norm/ different from what would be expected in that culture.
Internalizing symptoms characterized by quiet, internal distress; depressive and anxiety disorders (separation anxiety disorder, OCD, panic); they are harder to detect because they don't affect the environment (can't detect worry or fear)
Externalizing symptoms characterized by overtly, socially negative disruptive behavior (problematic for parents, teachers, etc); disruptive, impulse-control and conduct behaviors (ODD and CD); usually more noticeable and are those that can affect behavior (hyperactive)
Neurodevelopmental Disorders result in structural differences in the brain (apparent in early child development) => impairments of personal, social, academic, or occupational functioning (eg. Autism, ADHD, language disorder, ID, etc)
Separation Anxiety Disorder (SAD) excessive fear concerning separation from attachment figures.
ADHD Persistent patterns of inattention and/or hyperactivity that interferes with functioning/development
Equifinality divergent pathways resulting in a similar outcome (ADHD has multiple causes and effects)
