Check out my latest blog post examining why making others wrong rarely brings them around to your point of view.
For Spring 2019, I will be teaching:
PSY412 Abnormal Psychology
The required book to purchase for this class is as follows:

Students should try to read Chapter 1 prior to the first class on January 24. For those who cannot get the book before to the first day of class but still wish to get a leg up on this reading, Chapter 1 is available online.

From the publisher’s website:
This groundbreaking core textbook offers a comprehensive overview of different approaches to the assessment and treatment of psychological disorders. The book retains important diagnostic perspectives, including the DSM-5, ICD-10, ICD-11 and PDM, but also widens the scope of coverage beyond mainstream psychiatric models to include psychological, biological, historical, sociocultural and therapeutic approaches. Contemporary and well-balanced, this book provides an even-handed and holistic foundation, allowing students to develop a strong critical mindset while retaining a robust research-driven orientation.
