Lesson 3: Stigma and Labelling EXAM QUESTION Describe Rosenhan’s conclusions post his 1973 experiment on labelling Rosenhan concluded that medical staff, including psychologists, could not recognize `normal behaviour and once a person was labeled as having a specific mental disorder, all of their subsequent behaviour was interpreted in terms of the disorder.
