PSYCHOLOGY 350: Abnormal Psychology 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 & Participation Guidelines 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
