You've asked a broad question. A common question that relates to the public's welfare concerns the effectiveness of psychological interventions to improve mental and physical health and performance. The data suggest that psychological interventions are effective in improving both mental and physical health and athletic performance. Abnormal psychology includes the study of psychopathology which concerns the etiology and treatment of psychiatric disorders as well as the study of unusual behavior which could be positive (e.g., giftedness, hypnosis, ...).
