PY 4231 - Basic Psychopathology


This course surveys major mental disorders and theories of their etiology from a biopsychosocial approach. Mood, anxiety, personality, adjustment, substance, and childhood and adolescent disorders are covered, as well as dementias, schizophrenia, and sexual dysfunctions. Cognitive/behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic/existential, and systems approaches will be introduced, so as to provide the foundation for a broad understanding of psychopathology. Students in Basic Psychopathology will learn the DSM approach to diagnosis and classification. Cultural [and developmental] factors related to mental illness are emphasized. (3 credits)
