1 doctor agrees
In brief: 3 D's
That is a very good question! i teach that abnormal behavior is defined by the 3 d's.
Distress - the person (or people around the person) must be experiencing some type distress dysfunction - the behavior has to be causing some dysfunction in everyday life (not working, poor relationships) deviance - generally, behavior must be considered not normal for population.
