THE SIX ABNORMALITY MODELS individuals feel uneasy when speaking in public or being rejecting by society; moreover, influences individual to go out and get exposure to face the fears as it is all a mentality state that has already been decided but can further be changed. Humanistic-Existential This approach uses a wide range of approaches to understand the human making the individual a priority rather than the abnormality faced. Humanistic are people who believe that people are born with a natural tendency; in contrast, existentialists determine how people come to terms with the basic existence (Comer, 2017). As for humanistic this can relate to a place of employment where individuals are taught to view people a certain way due to the working atmosphere. This contributes to why individuals are not judged in a work environment by the race, belief, skin color, etc. The Gestalt therapy treatment is used to find self-recognition and self-acceptance. The technique often used is role playing which views others in one person’s body. This is where people can become very hysterical as viewing different roles of different people (Comer, 2017). As for existential, people are encouraged to accept responsibility for the lives of the individual’s problems. This existential therapy is used for patients to recognize the freedom to that a different choice may be chosen for a greater meaning in life (Comer, 2017). For example, for a doctor’s appointment, some may realize they have the freedom to attend appointments, but second guess and need clarification if they are there for the right reason. Sociocultural Abnormal behavior in a social cultural model looks to it as being understood in the broad forces which influence an individual (Markus & Hamedani, 2007). This mainly has to do with the socializing with the family themselves and how being raised has affected the individual.
