    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any person interested in psychology. With the way Dr. Edlis teaches, he promotes more than a rundown of various psychopathologies and an overview of the DSM 5. Using his own experiences as a clinical psychologist, he prompts you to think in-depth about what information is being given to you, and about the pros and cons of the mental health system in the United States and abroad. Moreover, he portrays the people suffering from these mental disorders as more than just the surface definition given in the DSM - he seeks to humanize them, and to move students away from the strictly clinical attitude which can sometimes pervade in the best of psychology practitioners.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a more in-depth understanding of where these disorders may come from in the mind, from a biological perspective, cognitive, behavioral, and even psychoanalytic. You learn to see the human underneath the illness. All too often, it is easy to see the disorder as a disease which must be eradicated with a prescription instead of understood in a multi-dimensional way. Disorders of the mind are typically maladaptive defense mechanisms. The person underneath is usually scared or has had a significant trust broken.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to read the text! His lectures are very detailed, and detailed lecture notes are what will help you get through the course.
