The field of Clinical Psychology aims to explore the differences between normal and abnormal behavior. As such, it is devoted to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of individuals with difficulties in cognition, emotion, and behavior. Courses in this area (e.g. Abnormal Psychology, Childhood Psychopathology, Methods of Counseling, Exploring Addictions) will help students understand the complex nature of psychopathology.
These courses will also provide a sound theoretical, practical, and research base for those continuing on for an advanced degree in clinical or counseling psychology, social work, or marriage and family therapy. Courses taught in this area will encourage thoughtful self-reflection, consideration of diverse cultural contexts, and increased awareness of internal and external factors that impact mental health services and delivery systems.
