The dsm cretieria for dementia is…
-Score statistically infrequent compared to norm
-personal distress(feces example)..but there are obvious examples of it i.e.anxiety)..exception for being
abnormal is tht it don’t cause distress i.e. psychopath
-violation of a norm(relative concept though, cause the norms chng over time i.e.homosexuality which
use to be a disorder)..must threaten/make anxious the person who is observing it to be abnormal
-impairment vs. disability/disfunction(impairment..i.e.anxiety,depression have tht impairment but wont
disable you)..abnormal when manifests in normal activities(abnormal)
