Normal and abnormal behavior

Defining the difference between normal and abnormal behavior begins with the 4 D’s

  1. Deviance from a society’s ideas about proper function
  2. Distress – pain or discomfort
  3. Dysfunction –  or maladaptive behavior which interferes with daily functioning
  4. Danger – behavior that becomes dangerous to self or others.
