|PSYC 357 - CHILDHOOD DISORDERS|
A study of the problems of childhood. We will examine the meaning of "abnormal behavior" within the developmental context, the nature of research in child disorders, psychological assessment, the causes and treatment of disorders such as autism, hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder, learning disability, mental retardation, and conduct disorders. It is recommended that students also enroll concurrently in the fieldwork component of the course (PSYC 358) for an additional 3-credits as there is no substitute for actual work experience with disturbed children in order to gain an understanding of the emotional problems of childhood. Students may, however, take the Childhood Disorders course without taking the fieldwork course. Fulfills the requirement for a psychology elective.
