Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
It is a difficult course with only three exams or alternative essays for evaluation. However, the lectures make up for the hard grading scale. The class is interactive and compelling and promotes true understanding of the material. From Lamorte's personal anecdotes to youtube videos, abnormal psychology with professor Lamorte is highly recommended for psychology majors.
Lamorte shows many documentaries, interviews and ted talks on abnormal psychology topics like depression, addiction, schizophrenia, etc. One of my favorite clips was a 20/20 segment on childhood schizophrenia. 20/20 takes a stark look into the lives of children and family members coping with this mental illness. Professor Lamorte then asked us to empathize with schizophrenics. We shared the confusion and fear that comes with this crippling disorder.
