Course Description

Abnormal psychology course involves understanding the nature, causes, and treatment of different mental disorders. We are exposed to issues related to the field of abnormal psychology every day, whether it’s hearing about a celebrity with a drug problem, or learning that your best friend is depressed. Researchers in this area seek to learn more about what causes these problems and how to treat them effectively. Clinicians learn how to implement treatments to help people lead mentally healthier lives. In this course, students will learn what abnormality means, how and why we classify mental disorders, and how these disorders are understood and treated.

Prerequisites: none

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how abnormality is defined and understood in various cultures.
  • Learn how to read and critically evaluate how mental illness is presented in popular culture

  • Gain a general understanding of the role of theory in developing treatments for psychological disorders (e.g., how therapists know what to say to a patient to help him or her change).
  • Learn how to de-bunk myths about psychological disorders (e.g., is it true that people act “crazier” when there is a full moon?).
