 Factors That Influence the Development of Psychopathology

            Research by Sadock et al. (2015) demonstrates the complexity of biological components in psychopathology. Even though improvements in neuroscience and genetics have allowed for more accurate diagnosis and treatment of mental health disparities, it is still crucial to consider the client’s social, cultural, psychological, and interpersonal environments while providing care. Improvements in neuroscience have been a boon to evidence-based medicine by providing the most accurate way to predict whether or not a treatment will work (Quinlan et al., 2020). Understanding which brain regions and neurotransmitters play a role in psychosis is vital for developing effective treatment strategies. Since most psychopathologies originate from heritable biological impairments mixed with high-risk situations, combining cognitive behavioral therapy and medication may produce the maximum benefits conceivable if the client is amenable.

           The development, maintenance, and resurgence of psychopathological diseases are all thought to have a psychological component. Examples include things like cognitive biases, impairments, and unhelpful worldviews. Given that these cognitive dysfunctions are inextricably related to relational and emotional processes (Brandes et al., 2019), they may be the underlying cause of some psychopathological symptoms or disorders. People with mental health issues may also have cognitive impairments that prevent them from recognizing they need help or reaching out for it.

         Many people model their actions after what society considers “acceptable” (Smith et al., 2020). Mental health may be affected by socioeconomic status, race, gender, and sexual orientation, in addition to any preexisting medical conditions (Smith et al., 2020). Having a mental health disorder is still socially stigmatized in some communities. When diagnosing patients from different cultural backgrounds, it is crucial to have accurate translations done by translators with experience in mental health. The shortage of translators is a real problem, in my opinion. The ability to speak the language is no substitute for familiarity with the culture. For some clients, the whole picture of their predicament will not become apparent for years. Providing and receiving care may need more time than is available when translations are unavailable due to dialect and lack of social support.

         Conversations with other people are indicated by the term “interpersonal.” When people have problems speaking, it can strain their mental health. Several mental diseases may benefit from the incorporation of interpersonal competence into treatment. Barriers between individuals can lead to the emergence of new behaviors (Smith et al., 2020). A person who has problems articulating their emotions
