Understanding Psychopathology
PSYC 251
Spring 2007
Section: 01  

This course is designed to give students an understanding of the current broad psychopathology categories, and the theory and research behind such groupings. Students will explore current explanations and the limits to our current knowledge. For example, if we continue to move toward biological explanations for our understanding of psychopathology why do different cultures experience different psychopathologies? Students will also be introduced to ideas generally accepted in mental health fields about assessment, diagnoses, and treatment and will have a chance to view real clients and the various forms psychopathology may take. Class activities, extra readings, discussion and videos will add to text material.
