    | 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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Required course for the degree. Really solid diagnostic information and practice.

    Course highlights:

    Enjoyed getting a more clinical perspective on the field. So often in this degree we are asked to be reflective and more subjective, and it was refreshing to have the opportunity to have a more objective approach.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay ahead on the assignments. When you wait until the last minute, you will fall behind.

    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.
