To what extent can transactional models help in understanding the origin and development of disturbed behaviour? This essay will look at the factors underlying disturbing behaviour in children and whether a transactional model best describes how disturbed behaviour develops. We will begin by looking at what constitutes “disturbing behaviour” and then look at the two traditional explanations for its development, discussing the different factors involved. From there we will then look at how the inadequacies of these models can be resolved with the transactional model. Disturbed behaviour is not always an easy thing to describe.

I also found out that the sex of the child as well as the sex of the psychologist or psychiatrist plays a very big role in the diagnosis. Using the DSM I-V I researched what exactly qualifies a child to have AD/HD and also how many other disorders have the same
Stephen Barlas reports in Psychiatric Times that antidepressants are found to cause “possible suicidal ideation and suicide attempts as side effects” (2006). With these possible side effects, parents are looking at other treatment options to help their children, including the combination of antidepressants with cognitive behavioral therapy. When researching about various antidepressants, fluoxetine, also known as Prozac, offered the most relevant and conclusive data concerning its effects on adolescents, and it was the most noted antidepressant combined with cognitive behavioral therapy. This paper will examine the symptoms of adolescent depression, how using the antidepressant fluoxetine affects depression in adolescents, and the results of studies using the combination of fluoxetine and cognitive behavioral therapy to treat major depression in
