    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of the more challenging classes that I've taken in the counseling department, but it was also one of the most interesting. Although it is tough, it helped me to understand and be more sensitive to many mental health issues than I didn't understand as much about before.

    Course highlights:

    I especially enjoyed Dr. Robertson's personal examples from his life and from his own career as a counselor. We also watched many video examples of the different disorders found in the DSM 5. It was very illuminating and I think this course will contribute much to my future career as a counselor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with your reading--especially the readings in the textbook because that is where all the midterm and final questions come from. Collaborate with your classmates about diagnoses--that was very helpful in learning how to do it correctly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Roberston has high expectations of his classes but he gives you amazing numbers of resources for the course. In the class you will have a clinical case study to do per week, a fictional character treatment plan project, and 2 major exams. The case studies are relatively easy and can vary from developing a treatment plan using the ICANSTART model to answering questions about the case. There is A LOT of reading involved but if you enjoy the topic, it's not terribly hard.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Robertson is an amazing professor who opens the floor to great dialogue from students and also is a wonderful resource for professional development. I learned the most on the exceptions and special cases of diagnosis, how to use the DSM-5, and how to create treatment plans.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ EVERYTHING AND TAKE NOTES! You'll need the notes and the readings are what will get you through the class. It helps to make an Excel spreadsheet of diagnoses and their features/criteria for these exams.
