    Major Depressive Disorder is also known as:

    • A.

      SAD

    • B.

      DID

    • C.

      Unipolar Depression

    • D.

      Bipolar Depression

    Correct Answer
    C. Unipolar Depression
    Explanation
    Major Depressive Disorder is also known as Unipolar Depression because it is characterized by a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest or pleasure in activities. Unlike Bipolar Depression, which involves alternating periods of depression and mania, Unipolar Depression only includes depressive episodes. The term "Unipolar" refers to the presence of only one extreme mood state, which is depression. This term helps differentiate it from Bipolar Depression, which involves both depressive and manic episodes.

      Zoloft

    • C.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the above options, Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil, can be used to treat Major Depressive Disorder. These medications belong to a class of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which work by increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in regulating mood. By increasing serotonin levels, these medications can help alleviate the symptoms of depression, such as persistent sadness, loss of interest, and changes in appetite and sleep patterns. Therefore, all of these options are suitable treatments for Major Depressive Disorder.

    C. Anxiety
    Explanation
    Behaviorists believe that Dissociative Disorders may be reinforced through means of getting attention, which can lead to a reduction in anxiety. This is because individuals with dissociative disorders may use dissociation as a coping mechanism to escape from stressful or traumatic situations. By dissociating, they can temporarily detach themselves from the anxiety-inducing stimuli, resulting in a decrease in anxiety levels.
