Abnormal Psychology & DSM 5 (504)
(07/10/2017-08/07/2017)

Course Memo

The course covers the development, symptoms, and patterns of maladjusted behavior. Students are introduced to the DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 categorization and classification of psychiatric phenomena. The goals of the course are for students to look at psychopathological behavior from a multidisciplinary and developmental framework in order to better understand deviant behavior as well as human behavior in general. The second major goal is to learn how to apply this multi-axial diagnostic assessment process to cases. The third goal is to gain a beginning understanding of the similarities and differences in case conceptualization between the DSM and Adlerian Psychology. (4/14)
