Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I was nervous at first to take the course, I thought it was going to be difficult because the name can be a bit intimidating, but I actually really enjoyed the course. The Professor gives helpful examples, and shows videos of real cases so that students can get a better sense of what it would be like to work in the field of Developmental Psychopathology.
The Professor was very good at engaging the class in real world experiences by having us complete assignments on example case studies and having us provide feedback on what we would do in the case, how we would diagnose, how we would intervene, etc. This was extremely helpful in the learning process and gave students a sample of what it might really be like to work in the field. The helpful videos that were provided were always interesting to watch.

Advice for students:
Do the assignments that are given. They are not difficult to complete if you take the time and you learn a lot while doing them. Go to discussions because the GSI's are very knowledgeable and know their stuff because they are graduate students in the field. Lastly, when studying for tests, review the lecture slides first, and then go over the study guide. If you understand the slides and study guide you should do well on tests.
