Psychology 130 Fall 2011 CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY Professor : Allison G. Harvey Lectures : MW 12-1 PM, 100 GPB Office Hours : MW 12 – 12:50 PM, 3321 Tolman GSI Sections Email Office Hour Andrew Peckham F: 12:00-3:00pm [email protected] M: 1-2pm, 3336 Tolman Anna Sapozhnikova (liaison for waitlist students) W: 2:00-5:00pm [email protected] Tu: 3-4pm, G7 Tolman Sandy Lwi (liaison for DSP students) Th: 12:00- 3:00pm [email protected] Tu: 2-3pm, G7 Tolman ** Discussion sections begin the week of September 5-9 th ** This course will provide an introduction to and overview of the field of clinical psychology. Our goal is to provide current scientific information about the nature and major forms of mental disorder. Throughout we will highlight the diverse roles that psychologists perform as scientists, advocates, providers, and evaluators of direct services. We will emphasize underlying theories of dysfunction, therapy and the ways in which basic sciences (e.g., attention science, cognitive science, emotion science, neuroscience) can inform the study of psychopathology and treatment. We will begin by highlighting issues related to the definition of abnormality and the classification of psychological disorders. Then we will examine a range of psychological disorders. Disorders to be covered include anxiety disorders (panic, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder), depression, sleep disorders, schizophrenia and eating disorders. Most disorders will be considered in terms of (1) classification, (2) epidemiology, (3) theories of etiology/maintenance and (4) treatment approaches. Throughout the course genetics, sex differences, high risk aspects and the effects of social class, culture and life events will be considered. Although the course is, of necessity, broad and survey-oriented, the sections will allow more in-depth coverage of selected topics. We hope to convey both our excitement about the scientific advances in the field and our alarm at the long strides that still need to be made in terms of public awareness, basic scientific understanding, and public neglect of children, adolescents and adults who suffer from mental disorders.

    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.
