Section Description

This course will focus on a variety of themes and topics related to abnormal psychology. Students will develop a working knowledge of common psychological disorders as well as current classification approaches (e.g., DSM-V). Additionally, students will understand factors related to etiology, maintenance, assessment, and treatment of these disorders. Students will develop an understanding of abnormal psychology throughout history, as well as how psychopathology is understood in society today and critical issues such as media portrayal. Assignments (e.g., exams, written assignments) will ask students to think critically about these topics. Readings will be taken from a current (DSM-V focused) textbook as well as from empirical journals in psychology and popular media.
