Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Depression in the context of abnormal psychology. It needs to be at least 2250 words. Depression refers both to a serious mental disorder and to a normal mood involving sadness that all people occasionally experience.The duration and grouping of symptoms distinguishes depression as a mental disorder from occasional feelings of sadness. This article discusses depression as a disorder. Medical experts believe that depression causes more disability throughout the world than almost any other medical illness or disorder. As the number of patients suffering with different types of depression is showing an abrupt increase over past few years, it has become imperative to evaluate its causes and treatment modes. This paper intends to analyze a number of research studies in the context of symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment and even the results of various modes of psychotherapy and antidepressant medicines.The evolution in our understanding of abnormal psychology is revealed by the changes in the way we have treated those suffering such disorders. For most of history, the emotionally disturbed were considered to be society’s castoffs. They were commonly locked up in prisons or workhouses alongside criminals. No exception was made for children, who were generally considered to be merely small adults. (Coriat, 1999)The predominant method today is based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), first published by the American Psychiatric Association in 1958. It contains descriptions of symptoms of each recognized form of abnormal psychology.
