Expanded Course Description
This social science course will expose you to key theoretical perspectives on psychopathology and methods used in psychopathology research. Specifically, you will learn about how to assess symptom presentations based on these models as well as how treatments are designed directly from theories of etiology. A significant portion of this course will be dedicated to analyzing the predominant model by which the field currently conceptualizes and classifies mental health disorders. We will compare and contrast the current model with other perspectives. To be able to engage in this discourse, you will be exposed to a variety of tools and methodologies used in psychopathology research so that you can understand the merits and limitations of various forms of evidence. Students will also practice reading original research, designed to facilitate critical thinking about ‘what we know’, and ‘what we don’t know’ about the etiology and treatment of mental health disorders.
