We often discuss the role that culture plays in our development, and how it can influence the way we think, feel and act. This is particularly true when it comes to social norms and expectations. As we’ve been discussing so far in this course, the term “abnormal” is often subjective and difficult to define. For this assignment, choose one of the disorders that were covered this week to focus on. You will then identify a culture other than your own and research how this particular culture understands, treats, and explains this particular disorder. For example, how might people from a tribe in Africa understand and explain anxiety disorders?
