INTRO TO CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY
Fall Quarter 2004
|Prerequisites:||Psychology 1, 41, 168, and either Psychology 140 or 151.|
The purpose of this course is to give students an overview of the field of clinical psychology. We'll cover historical background, the education and training of clinical psychologists, theoretical influences on the field, and major areas of research and practice. Students will learn about the interface between this and other areas of psychology, as well as how clinical psychology differs from other applied fields. With a focus on assessment, intervention and research, we'll look at specialty areas, current issues and trends in clinical psychology.
Classes will meet twice weekly for two hours each time. Time will be spent in lecture and discussion primarily, but films and guest speakers will supplement and highlight certain topics.

Quarter grades will be based on three (3) equally weighted, non-cumulative midterm examinations. Exams will be primarily essay format, but may also include short answers and/or definitional components. Depending on class size, exams may be take home. There will also be the opportunity to complete an optional paper that can replace the lowest exam grade (details will be given out the first day of class). The third midterm examination will be given at the time scheduled for the final exam.
