Abnormal Psychology

Fall 2019

Taught By: Warren Spielberg

Section: A

CRN: 3865

Credits: 3

Using a multitheoretical model of psychopathology, students explore basic contemporary and historical conceptions of abnormal behavior. They are introduced to the current classification system of mental disorders, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV-TR), and consider its strengths and weaknesses in an increasingly complex field. Psychodynamic, cognitive, humanistic, and sociocultural approaches to major Axis I and Axis II disorders are presented. The class employs critical thinking to examine current controversies over classification, assessment, and treatment of mental illness. This course was formerly listed as NPSY3501. Do not take this course if you have previously taken NPSY3501; it is the same course and cannot be taken twice for credit.
