GPS 516 - Advanced Abnormal Psychology II

This course is a continuation of GPS 515 with the focus on adult psychopathology.  Initially the focus will be on the study of several theories regarding adult self-development and psychopathology.  The DSM IV-TR and the PDM will be utilized to understand the classification and inner experience of people with a spectrum of clinical disorders.  The goal of this course is to give students a sense of the phenomenological experience of the person living with a disorder, along with a grounding in developmental theoretical constructs that make the disorders more meaningful clinically. Finally, students will present in-depth case studies along with experience formulating clinical diagnoses.

Prerequisites:
GPS 515.  Course open to degree students only or with permission of the Director.
