Scope and Importance:
The psychologist researches those categorise which are sense, perceptions, thoughts, volitions, and emotions. Psychology is a branch of Philosophy. It cannot suggest with the generalization of facts it must pass on to the inner character and constitution of the root and subject of these phenomena it must learn to explain the effect by its cause. Besides the fact that the main interest for mankind in Psychology is because of the expectation that some information as related the nature of the soul can be thence derived, there is another reason for the explicit treatment of these metaphysical problems. The two sets of questions are incapable of isolation. They can never be really separated. Our final conclusions as regards many vital philosophical problems are determined by the view taken of the nature of mental activity in the part of the science. It is, consequently fair to the reader that the philosophical statement to which the treatment of mental phenomena presented to him logically lead, and should be clearly pointed out.

Abnormal psychology uses two distinct concepts in an effort to explain mental disorders. These are the biological paradigm and the psychological paradigm. The biological paradigm focuses on the physical factors that affect psychopathology such as neurochemistry, genetics and heredity. The psychological paradigm is more concerned with the humanistic, cognitive and behavioral causes and effects of mental illnesses. With analysis and interpretation subject to a variety of approaches and perspectives, it is often a challenge to explain psychopathology. The realization that most mental disorders are associated with multiple factors has precipitated the need for researchers to take into account several theoretical perspectives when seeking to explain abnormal behaviors and mental illnesses. The approach of combining theoretical perspectives when diagnosing mental disorders is referred to as multiple causality. Classification of abnormal behaviors and mental illnesses (in North America) is standardized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. The most recent edition of this Abnormal Psychology and Psychiatry reference book is the DSM IV-TR. The manual provides detailed information on diagnostic codes, lists of disorders, the frequency of a disorder in the general population, gender and age differences for a particular disorder, the effects of treatment, common treatment approaches and other relevant facts.
