P324 | 4598 | R. Weiskopf
This is an introduction to Abnormal Psychology. The emphasis will be on
three theories - Freud, the biological, the cognitive, and the research
evidence or lack thereof, to support each theory. There will be a strong
emphasis on the relationship between theory and research. In addition to
an overview of these three theories, and research, various disorders will
be discussed, such as the anxiety disorders, the mood disorders, the
psychotic disorders, as well as others.
The text is Davidson and Neale's Abnormal Psychology. There will be three
multiple-choice exams with the possibility of an extra credit paper.
