    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is well designed to develop understanding of mental health diagnosis. However, not all instructors are prepare to teach, motivate and help students to encourage with the use and application of the different diagnosis or disturbances.

    Course highlights:

    I had the opportunity to lean more about the difference mental health diagnosis available in the DSM-5 handbook and use different resources to assist with the identification of symptoms such as movies.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My personal advice is to try to find a good instructor that makes the process of leaning more encouraging. The course is excellent and provides great tools to become an excellent MFT professional.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is essential to the mental health profession and is therefore a requirement for accreditation. Dr. Morgan is an outstanding professor who provides invaluable feedback which he directly relates to real-life scenarios. The professor is also very encouraging, understanding, and available personally to answer questions and offer insight.

    Course highlights:

    This course applies diagnostic criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to relationships and families. The focus of the course is assessment of characters from certain movies, applying a diagnosis from the DSM-5, and selecting treatment from relational/systemic approaches. The course also includes research on certain conditions, diversity, and ethics issues in marriage and family therapy.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    When providing a diagnosis, use official name and the ICD-10 diagnostic code every time. Be specific, for instance, depression is too vague. Include specifiers from the diagnostic criteria such as, early remission, mild, moderate, with psychosis, etc. Go through diagnostic criteria one by one and state in your own words how client meets it or doesn’t. I also recommend being on top of time management, and looking ahead at assignments that may require extra time, especially in the final 3 weeks of the course.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Understanding pathologies is important when working with families. A therapist must know how to diagnosis pathologies to determine the presentoing problem which is not always as the client believes it to be.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about empathy which is one of the most important aspects of working with others. A therapist must show they care by empathizing with clients without showing sympathy. People become defensive when they believe you are being jidgmental or feeling sorry for them.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    When doing the assignments try to think of people you have known that suffer with some of the pathologies to help you identify some of the real life symptoms. In this class you are able to use characters from movies for examples of the different pathologies. This is also very helpful. I actually watched several movies and and tried to determine the pathologies. Also use the DSM and read the symptoms and descriptions for the symptoms for each pathology. You want to be able to identify a pathology through assessments when a clients come to you.
