Diathesis–Stress Models of Vulnerability A useful concept in developmental psychopathology and vulnerability is diathesis– stress. Diathesis originally referred to the medical concept that people have a predisposition to illness that is based in endogenous biological or constitutional factors (Ingram & Price, 2001). The concept has been expanded in developmental psychopathology to discuss how a child might show predispositions to a disorder that are the result of genetic, biological, psychological, or other vulnerabilities.
Conversely, a single risk factor may have a number of implications, depending on variables operating within the child and the environment (multifinalilty) (Cichetti & Rogosch, 1996). Of similar interest is that some children who live in stressful and high-risk environments nevertheless have positive developmental outcomes, presumably due to a combination of inherent strengths and positive, supportive environments. Risk and Protective Factors In developmental psychopathology, the roles of risk and protective factors are central to understanding developmental pathways, outcomes, equifinality, and multifinality.
Behaviors associated with temperament can be affected by many variables, including parenting and social support, and can be changed through exposure to environmental events, including psychotherapy. The Cultural Context The cultural context, which includes ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, and religious factors, plays a central role in what behaviors are expected by society, family, and others and also dictates to a significant extent how feelings, distress, and emotions are expressed. For example, shyness and oversensitivity have been found to be seen as sources of social difficulties in Western culture, but associated with leadership qualities and school success in Chinese children (Chen, Rubin, & Li, 1995).
