    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazing and very interesting. The professor is super sweet and really knows what she's talking about. She's also really helpful if you aren't understanding something. If you are interested in Psychology, definitely take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a ton about different disorders, including personality disorders, childhood disorders, and even sexual disorders. I really enjoyed the professor and the way she more so talked to us rather than just lectured.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to go to class. Attendance is a HUGE part of your grade because there are only 3 exams that make up the final grade. She takes attendance every class and she'll know if you weren't there. She'll also know if you have a friend sign your name for you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone, even if you are not majoring in psychology. Professor Ansell is very professional and highly educated, making the course interesting. The course is not too easy, and not too hard. There are 3-4 online open book quizzes, and two exams. The Professor posts all of the slideshows on blackboard, for the students to look over after class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was when Professor Ansell and a graduate student Jessica did a reenactment of how to conduct exposure therapy. Jessica was the therapist in this situation, and Professor Ansell was the young girl that struggled with anxiety and her weight. I learned how to conduct exposure therapy, and how important this type of therapy is for specific disorders. Professor Ansell had to rub a gummy bear on a toilet seat, and then eat it. This was very interesting, and it stuck with me.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    For me, I listened during class instead of furiously writing down the notes. I paid attention in class and tried to digest the information. Then, after class I would write down all of the notes from the powerpoint in my notebook as a review of the information.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are interested in children, and their ability to grow and prosper.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the different levels that children need to grow in successfully to be able to go onto the next level. I learned that depending on the attention that your caregiver gives you when you are a child, affects you growing up. I also learned that some children are more attached to their caregivers than others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice that I would give to students considering this course is to always attend class - always take notes, and whatever Professor, Wood puts on the review sheet, I would review that items and study them because that is exactly how the exam will be set up.
