Psychopathology

PSYC 251
Spring 2013
Section: 01  
Certificates: Civic Engagement

Historical and contemporary perspectives of psychopathology are surveyed and the different paradigms used to understand psychopathology are considered. Specific mental disorders including affective, anxiety, impulsive, and psychotic spectrum disorders are covered. As students learn about models of classification of different mental disorders, they will also be expected to think critically about the mechanisms of psychopathology and consider implications for diagnosis and treatment. This course focuses on the scientific study of psychopathology and is not intended for self-exploration.
