    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course. I won't use much of what I learned here as I am not going into a career path where I will be doing much diagnosing, but I still found what I learned fascinating.

    Course highlights:

    I learned everything about the DSM. I learned how to use it how to translate it for a layman and when it needs to be supplemented. I recommend this course for anyone going into psychology it is invaluable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you follow the directions for each assignment and go with your gut. I found my self second guessing my diagnoses of the case studies we used and my first instinct was almost always right.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course has been fascinating! We are given case studies where we have to research the DSM-5 to correctly diagnose the client, and then justify our reasons for our diagnosis. We are also required to research various components related to disorders such as prevalence in gender, culture, etc.

    Course highlights:

    I am gaining a tremendous amount of confidence in my diagnostic skills as well as writing case notes. Additionally, the DSM-5 can be daunting, but having to use it for diagnosing cases has required familiarity with it and I can now easily find what I am looking for and have even created shortcuts. The professor is very skilled and provides us with his perceptions of the case studies after we submit ours. He details everything so we fully understand his reasoning. He does however leave the door open for other interpretations of symptoms and is willing to entertain other diagnoses if it can be justified.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read everything that is required and suggested! Participate in all discussions and go beyond what is required. Buy a DSM-5 (or the current version if that one is outdated) and trust that you will learn.
