This course is intended to (1) provide knowledge of the field of clinical psychology which involves the symptoms and manifestations of behavioral disturbances, the diagnosis/assessment and treatment of these disturbances, and evaluating the effectiveness of treatments and interventions; (2) analyze psychological research and clinical cases pertinent to the field, and (3) develop critical thinking skills on clinical psychology issues.
The course will have a lecture/discussion format. Guest speakers, as well as demonstrations and class Exercises, will be included. Students are expected to participate in the class exercises. We will have extensive use of powerpoint slides. Slides presented in class will be available for downloading. For a given lecture, I will try to post the powerpoint slides 24 hours in advance on the MyUCDavis website for the course.
