Behavioural Management and Psychopathology - PSYN843

The aims of this unit are to develop a basic understanding of common psychological disorders (such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder), their evaluation using appropriate assessment tools, and their presentation within common neuropsychological conditions. Students are introduced to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual diagnostic classification system, the Mental Status Examination and their applicability to the neuropsychological assessment. The neuropsychology of psychological diagnoses such as schizophrenia, and the basic management of behavioural and psychological disorders in patients with acquired brain injury are discussed.
