There are multiple concepts throughout our text that I learned of that were interesting. I believe that the concepts of the benefits and disadvantages of being diagnosed with a disorder, psychological treatments, and the scientific method was however the interesting subjects that applied to me.

These concepts also help me understand certain situations and what can happen to individuals with disorders

With the knowledge I have gained I will be able to further myself not only as a student, but as an individual interested in educating myself. I believe that the realm of psychology is something that affects us every day. It affects us with our decisions, our thinking, and can be considered to affect our way of
