    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The stress-vulnerability model is an integrated model that seeks to explain the development of mental health problems by considering the interactions between biological, psychological, and social factors. This model recognizes that mental health issues are not solely caused by one factor, but rather a combination of these factors. By understanding how stress and vulnerability interact, this model provides a comprehensive explanation for the development of mental health problems. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Select two statements about the stress-vulnerability model that are True

    • A. 

      This model explains why some people develop mental health problems and others do not even if they are subject to the same traumas or social factors

    • B. 

      It is pessimistic, as it does not suggest that mental health problems can be alleviated by the removal of stress factors

    • C. 

      It also proposes that neurotic and psychotic experiences are on a continuum and are related to the degree of stress and its link to vulnerability

    • D. 

      The model does not appear to successfully bring together the influence of biological,psychological and social factors

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. This model explains why some people develop mental health problems and others do not even if they are subject to the same traumas or social factors
    C. It also proposes that neurotic and psychotic experiences are on a continuum and are related to the degree of stress and its link to vulnerability
    Explanation
    The stress-vulnerability model explains why some individuals develop mental health problems while others do not, even when exposed to the same traumas or social factors. It suggests that neurotic and psychotic experiences exist on a continuum and are influenced by the level of stress and vulnerability. However, the model does not effectively integrate the influence of biological, psychological, and social factors.

    We evaluated each model and concluded that one model is adequate in describing and explaining the sources and experience of mental health problems.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement in the question suggests that after evaluating each model, it was concluded that only one model is sufficient in describing and explaining the sources and experience of mental health problems. However, the correct answer is False, which implies that the statement is incorrect. Therefore, it can be inferred that the evaluation did not lead to the conclusion that only one model is adequate, but rather there may be multiple models that are suitable for describing and explaining mental health problems.

    We may therefore view the hearing of voices not solely as a discrete psychological experience, but as an interactional phenomenon reflecting the nature of the individual's relationship to his or her own environment

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that hearing voices should not be seen as solely a psychological experience, but rather as a reflection of the individual's relationship with their environment. This implies that the experience of hearing voices is influenced by external factors and the individual's perception and interaction with their surroundings. Therefore, the answer "True" indicates agreement with this perspective.

    The concept of mental illness is seen as a ​social construct.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The concept of mental illness is seen as a social construct because it is shaped by societal beliefs, norms, and values. The definition and understanding of mental illness vary across cultures and historical periods, highlighting its subjective nature. Mental illness is not an objective, universal phenomenon but rather a product of social and cultural factors. This perspective acknowledges that society plays a significant role in defining, labeling, and responding to mental health conditions, emphasizing the importance of considering social context in understanding and addressing mental illness.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that diversity is important in psychiatry and that those who only adhere to one model are limited in their perspective. However, the correct answer is False, indicating that the statement is not true.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Social work is a profession that focuses on helping individuals, families, and communities enhance their well-being and overcome challenges. It is concerned with understanding and addressing the interactions between a person's internal experiences (such as thoughts, emotions, and beliefs) and their external environment (such as family, community, and society). By recognizing and considering these interactions, social workers can better support individuals in coping with various issues and improving their overall quality of life. Therefore, the statement that social work is concerned with how people cope at the interface between their internal and external world is true.
