72 Short Answer/Essay Questions

Try these AFTER you have thoroughly studied the chapter.  You should not have to look back at the text to answer them (only to check your answer!).  Remember, the point is NOT to memorize parts of the textbook but rather to understand the material and describe it in your OWN WORDS.

If you are going to write more than a couple of paragraphs, think about the structure of your answer.

  1. What is the DSM and how is it used?
  2. How have psychologists tried to explain anxiety and dissociation disorders?
  3. Identify two sexual dysfunctions and describe how each of them can negatively impact a person’s enjoyment of sex.
  4. What is borderline personality disorder and what is known about its causes?
