    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sikorski has an endless amount of stories from when he was interning as a grad student. This course focused on symptoms, causes and treatment of anxiety disorders, personality disorders, substance abuse disorders and etc. This is an upper level course and there is a lot of information to process and homework to be completed. Dr. Sikorski's powerpoint presentations and own personal stories help guide you throughout the course and help comprehend the material reviewed. Although this was the most challenging course I have taken so far, I would take this course many more times if I could.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge in this course overall. From day one, Dr. Sikorski made it clear that it was an upper level course and he wanted us to get our money's worth. I learned the symptoms, causes and treatment plans for Anxiety Disorders (GAD, Social Anxiety, Agoraphobia, etc.), Personality Disorders (Narcissistic, Dependent, Borderline, etc.), Substance Abuse Disorders, etc. Each of the disorders were of equal importance and are vital to memorize. I learned how to write a case analysis and become a stronger writer in this course, as well as identify and try to diagnose what a patient may be suffering from by reading a case study given to us.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    As I've stated, this is an upper level course and upper level courses are more demanding. You have to be extremely passionate and open to discussion and other's opinions in this course. Many of your peers will have different opinions on the DSM-IV and how to handle certain diagnoses and treatment plans for individuals. Participation matters immensely! Engage yourself in class discussions and ask as many questions as you need, there's no such thing as "stupid questions." You have to truly set some free time for this course and dedicate a good amount of your time reviewing your notes nightly/daily, memorizing certain mental health disorders, attending office hours if you are available (for case analyses and essay questions), attending exam review sessions (for extra points and clarification on different chapters and disorders), etc. This course will help you become a more advanced and independent thinker in the area of Psychology.
