Psychopathology - PSY337

This unit focuses on so-called abnormal behaviour. Following a general introduction to the nature of abnormality, each of the main forms of psychopathology is discussed. In each case the disorder is described, demographic features are covered, and theories of cause and maintenance are discussed. Psychological, social, and biochemical factors are included. As much as possible, empirical evidence supporting the theories is highlighted. This unit is a blend of online and face-to-face delivery. All tutorial classes remain face-to-face.
