This course is designed to explore what we know and what we don't know about psychopathology. Historical and contemporary views will be examined in such a way to promote the consideration of potential approaches for the future. All conceptualizations will be theoretically and empirically grounded, and problems with diagnosing "abnormal" behavior will be considered.
Ethical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning
Students with be required to develop logical reasoning as they learn the scientific literature on mental disorders (and diagnosis) and how to place it in the theoretical context of models of psychopathology. Ethical issues will arise when considering diagnosis and treatment from historical and present day contexts.
