MUST USE THE BOOK: Abnormal Psychology in a Changing World by Jeffrey S. Nevid, Spencer A. Rathus, and Beverly Greene eleventh edition. Your assignment this week is a 3- to 5-page descriptive essay on the theoretical models of psychopathology. Extending from your discussion board post, you will explore the role of theory in understanding psychopathology and the connection to abnormal behavior along with a review of the strengths and limitations of each model. Finally, you will provide a discussion of the role of early childhood trauma in the development of psychopathology, connecting trauma to the biopsychosocial model of abnormal behavior. Be sure to address the following elements in your paper this week: Part 1: Describe the biopsychosocial model and how it is used to understand behavior and psychopathology. • Describe how the model is used to understand behavior. • Explain the strengths and limitations of the biopsychosocial model in understanding psychopathology. • Explain the benefits of using the biopsychosocial model to understand psychopathology. Part 2: Explain early childhood trauma and the development of psychopathology. • Using at least one peer-reviewed journal article, describe at least three ways early childhood trauma can contribute to the development of psychopathology later in life. • Explain how the biopsychosocial model can be used to understand psychopathology associated with early life trauma. Your assignment should be 3–5 pages, not including the title and reference pages, and should include the following elements: • Title page: Provide your name, section number, and date. • Body: Include an introductory and a concluding paragraph. Answer all the questions, reflecting style and mechanics (including the use of correct grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure). • Your responses should reflect professional writing standards and appropriate personal and professional insights. o The assignment must be written in Standard English and demonstrate superior organization, including a highly developed viewpoint and purpose that is clearly established and sustained. The communication of your thoughts must be highly ordered, logical, and unified, displaying exceptional content and organization, style, and mechanics (including the use of correct grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure). o The writing and writing style should be correct and accurate, and reflect knowledge of the foundations of psychopathology. o Reference page: Sources listed in current APA format. o Include a minimum of two sources to support your responses and conclusions. One can be your text. The other should be from a peer-reviewed journal or article found in the Purdue Global Library. • Use Arial or Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced and left-aligned. • Use standard 1″ margins on all sides. • Use current APA formatting and citation style.
Finally, you will provide a discussion of the role of early childhood trauma in the development of psychopathology, connecting trauma to the biopsychosocial model of abnormal behavior.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
