    Spring Quarter 2008

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Psychology 1, 41, 168, and either Psychology 140 or 151.

    Course Content:  This course literally introduces students to the field of clinical psychology, both the body of knowledge and the professional aspects that make up clinical psychology.  Students will learn about the major theoretical influences on the field, the research and applications in assessment and intervention, specialty areas and "hot topics" in clinical psychology.

    Course Format:  The class will meet twice a week for two hours each time.  Classes will follow mostly a lecture format, but films, in-class exercises, and guest speakers will also be added to the mix. 

    Grading:  Grading will be based on three non-cumulative midterm exams.  Students will have the opportunity to write an optional paper in lieu of taking all the exams, or can write the paper to allow the lowest of four grades to be dropped.  The paper option will be discussed the first day of class.
