Summary: Psychopathology is a cognitive, emotional, behavioral or biological disorder within an individual that is associated with distress or impairment in functioning, and is not typical or culturally expected. A psychopathology, or mental disorder, is a multidimensional construct that depends on the individual’s cultural and social context (Barlow, Durand, & Hofmann, 2016). The aim of this chapter is to give an overview of mental disorders
as they are presently defined. We will first review the history of psychopathology, and how its classification has changed over the years. We will also discuss the cultural aspects involved in diagnosing psychopathology. Lastly, we will provide an overview of the main psychological disorders and culturally relevant aspects of their classification.
