This unit adopts an integrative approach to the study of psychopathology. Students will learn how psychologists define abnormal behaviour and how they undertake clinical assessment and diagnosis. Students will be introduced to the major classes of psychological disorders as defined within the DSM-V including the typical symptomatology, prevalence, aetiology, and typical course. The unit will teach students how the major theoretical paradigms in psychology inform conceptualisation, assessment, and treatment of psychological disorders.
