PSYC 230: Emotional and Social Disorders is the study of Abnormal Behaviour. Initially we will study the key concepts of major personality theories as they apply to abnormal psychology. This is followed by an introduction to the DSMIV (or DSMV) Classification System and research strategies used in abnormal psychology. The course begins its examination of specific disorders by considering disorders related to anxiety, stress and conflict. The final unit looks at the mind’s role in the body’s health and finally at dysfunctional personalities.
