biological & social-cultural thesis

Reply to:


Schizophrenia, a mental disorder that alters a person’s behavior, emotions, and thought process, is explained by theorists throughout several models that include biological, social-cultural, and psychological (Comer & Comer, 2021). Genetics is the focus on how the biological model explains Schizophrenia. The social-cultural model references the explanation to the multicultural differences as an impact on the development of schizophrenia. Furthermore, the labeling on people is another influence on the development of schizophrenia. The psychological model incorporates the psychodynamic cognitive behavior of a non-emotional and un-nurturing parent that leads to the evolution of the mental disorder.

In my opinion, the biological model is most fitting to explain schizophrenia because it incorporates a scientific pattern that explains a flow of levels of dopamine, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are inherited.
