    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to all psychology and non-psychology majors. In times like today where mental health issues are becoming spoken about more freely and seen more in the media (ex. 13 Reasons Why) its important to be educated more about them. Dr. Pincus does an amazing job at presenting these disorders without bias, an also acknowledging the role of stigma in how often people are diagnosed with certain mental illnesses and how well it is researched about. We were able to go through case studies and learn about different types of treatments, which also made the course a lot less theoretical and more science/ observation based which I enjoyed.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of the course for me personally were learning about the more commonly spoken about mental disorders like Anxiety disorders, Depressive disorders and Hyperactive disorders like ADHD. Learning about lesser known disorders also stimulated my interest, but it was interesting to learn about how societal changes really impacted diagnosis of things like ADHD and Depression. For example, with Kleptomania, psychologists cannot confidently disregard the fact that the social stigma that goes with stealing may play a part of how we perceive the prevalence of the disorder. I thought learning things like this, really opened my eyes to how complex and multi-dimensional mental disorders are and how that in turn impacts the way we perceive and treat them in a clinical setting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely attend every class- Dr. Pincus is very thorough and we're presented with helpful case studies throughout the semester. In addition, going to discussion is an important part of your grade, and supplementary information outside of lecture that will be covered on the exam is covered in discussion sections. Lastly, Dr. Pincus' slides are quite long, about 60-80 slides per topic so its important to give yourself enough time to go through them before exams.
