    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone thinking about a career in the field of psychology, especially the clinical aspect. With the various techniques, approaches, and theories that can be utilized to treat someone suffering from mental ailments, Elements of Clinical Psychology is an intriguing course which should be part of any psychology degree!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about various approaches, such Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Approach, Humanistic Therapy, and Familial Systems, to treating individuals suffering from mental health disorders/diseases. Each approach has advantages and disadvantages, and since everyone is unique, it is just a matter of designing a treatment plan which best suits the client. Another unique facet that I learned in this course was in regards to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and how it influences the longevity of a client's relationship. Did you know that there is a label specifically for this combo? It is known as ROCD- Relationship Obsessive Compulsive Disorder! Basically, it is a break down of how an individual suffering from OCD can have perceived flaws about his/her relationship and/or his/her partner, which in turn can become a great detriment to the relationship, as well as other relationships. However, there are various treatments which can be utilized to alleviate the symptoms of ROCD and bring normality back to the relationship. For instance, various Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, such as cognitive restructuring, exposure and response prevention (ERP); as well as, experiential techniques, such as imagination-based exposures, are utilized to explore and challenge these beliefs and views, such as the perceived flaws of the relationship and partner, in attempts to reduce the compulsive behaviors.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not let anything, nor anyone be an obstacle to your goal. If an obstacle manifests, seek it out and prevail over it, as it will only become another stepping stone closer to your desire. Learning is a constant journey and everyday you learn something new. No matter how minute it may seem, it is significant in its own way. Knowledge is Power!!! Seek and Prevail!!!
