Fall 2010 T Th 3:30 to 4:20 ME 161 Professor: Dr. Judith Conger Office: 1130 PSYC Phone: 494-6997 e-mail: [email protected] Office hours: Wednesday 2-3 or by appointment TEACHING ASSISTANTS: E-mail Vindhya Ekanayake [email protected] Kim Kappa [email protected] Amber Landers [email protected] Course Objectives 1. to provide students with an overview of the field of abnormal psychology and major psychological problems and disorders in and outside of official nomenclature; 2. to familiarize students with current conceptualizations of the causes of these disorders; 3. to expose students to intervention and prevention strategies for psychological disorders; 4. to instill in students an understanding and appreciation of research approaches in the study of psychological disorders. Required Text Barlow, D. H. & Durand, V. M. (2010). Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach. 5 th Edition . Wadsworth Publishing Company. Attendance at lecture is not required but will be very helpful to students. While attendance is not required, there may be little quizzes, from time to time that could enhance your grade. The area of abnormal psychology tends to generate much interest and discussion. Such discussion will not be found in the textbook. In-class discussion is encouraged, but must remain respectful. It is likely that one or more individuals in class and/or their friends/relatives will have experienced each of the disorders that are discussed. Attendance at recitation sections, however, is required and will contribute to students’ grades for the section. If you come to class (lecture or recitation), be advised that the ringing of cell phones is disruptive to lecture, the reading of papers during lecture is insulting to the instructor, and chronic tardiness will not be tolerated. 1
