If so, what is the mechanism of genetic transmission? 4. What is the actual location of the gene or genes involved? Pennington (2002) notes that these questions do not apply if a trait having a genetic basis is not familial. If a trait is not familial, then it is not heritable. An example of this circumstance is children with trisomy 21 and mosaic trisomy 21 where some or all of the cells have 47 chromosomes and there is an extra chromosome 21. The syndrome is genetic, but is not heritable because it is not familial.

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).

Although familiality does not necessarily prove that a trait has a genetic basis due to the fact that it could be mediated by environmental circumstances, twin and molecular studies have demonstrated that genetics contributes substantially to the familiality of these disorders (Pennington). The Biological Context The biological context has implications for psychopathology when physical abnormalities, neurological conditions, or inborn characteristics contribute to maladaptive pathways. Obvious conditions include neurological damage, neuropsychological deficits, or seizure disorders.
