How to include EVOLUTIONARY THEORY in your Pathology Prevention plans.
The eight mental health perspectives are balanced by the Health Guardian to provide a holistic lens needed for primary mental healthcare and pathology prevention. This supports an improved mental health capability leading to self-reliance, increasing wellness, and an abundant life.
A central claim of the Evolutionary Perspective is that the brain (and therefore the mind) evolved to solve problems encountered by our hunter-gatherer ancestors during the upper Pleistocene period over 10,000 years ago. This evolutionary approach explains behavior in terms of the selective pressures that shape behavior. Most behaviors that we see/display are believed to have developed during our EEA (environment of evolutionary adaptation) to help us survive.
