Summary/Abstract: Psychopathology is the study of origin, development, and manifestations of mental or behavioral disorders. It has used various categorizations of psychological disorders throughout its life span categorizing this study as a developmental notion of categorization of mental and behavioral disorders common to various populations. It is thus crucial to define psychological disorders within the study of psychopathology as psychological dysfunctions identified within individuals associated with distresses or impairments in functioning and response deviating from their cultural norms (Barlow & Durand, 2009).
