The course provides an overview of the nature and history of abnormal behaviour and then examines the predominant models underlying our understanding of abnormality. Detailed descriptions and empirical research relating to a range of clinical problems form the core of the course. Topics include schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality, somatoform and dissociative disorders, and disorders of childhood. Presentations of clinical problems are supported by outside speakers or video based illustrations. There is an emphasis upon empirical evidence relating to the epidemiology, aetiology, and treatment of the clinical problems covered during the course. Students will also gain an introduction to the National Practice Standards for Mental Health Workforce.
