Psychopathology: an integrated approach to disorders of the mind

Module code: PS2101

This module will cover the key aspects of normal and abnormal human behaviour. You will discover how to identify, classify, and treat disorders of the mind.  This module takes a biopsychosocial approach to studying psychopathology, by discussing the importance of considering how biological, psychological, and social factors interact to predispose individuals to psychological disorders, and to precipitate and maintain their symptoms. You will also learn about the major models of personality that can be employed in conjunction with these approaches to help inform our understanding of normal and abnormal human behaviour.
