CNS5420-01-FA12 Psychopathology

This course provides an understanding of mental illness with focus on the behavioral manifestations, experiential dynamics, and relational/family impact of these disorders. Study is done in the most current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in order to learn the categories of symptoms of psychopathology necessary to diagnose and treat mental disorders. A variety of perspectives on psychopathology are presented to form a whole-person (or bio-psycho-social-spiritual) and systemic context for understanding. Students are challenged to determine theologically what they believe are the standards for pathology and how these correlate with the DSM. Prerequisite: Undergrad General Psychology or Introduction to Psychology.
