Chapter 14: Treating Psychological Disorders

Short Answer/Essay Questions


Try these AFTER you have thoroughly studied the chapter. You should not have to look back at the text to answer them (only to check your answer!). Remember, the point is NOT to memorize parts of the textbook but rather to understand the material and describe it in your OWN WORDS.
If you are going to write more than a couple of paragraphs, think about the structure of your answer.
  1. Describe two direct brain intervention therapies.
  2. What is CBT and how is it used to treat psychological problems?
  3. How do researchers evaluate the effectiveness of different therapies?
  4. How do SSRIs work and what are some of their side effects?
