    INTRO TO CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

    Spring Quarter 2006

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

    Course Goals:  This course is designed to give students an overview of the field of clinical psychology.  We'll cover the field's history, 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 current issues and trends in clinical psychology. 

    Grading:  Quarter grades will be based on three non-cumulative midterm exams, with the third exam given at the time scheduled for the final.  Students will have the opportunity to substitute for one of the midterm exams, a paper which evaluates the research literature in an area of clinical psychology.  Details about this option will be provided the first day of class.
