PSY Summer 2015 Course options

From Sue Phebus, PSY Schedule Deputy:

We have several summer offerings in PSY (listed below) and would like to call your attention to a new course being developed from the clinical area.  This course is open to any student in any major:

Personality & Mental Illness-PSY 39200, CRN 11113  (Prerequisite: PSY 350,     Instructor: Doug Samuel)

A crucial role for clinical psychologists is the assessment and diagnosis of mental disorders. This course provides a primer on how psychological constructs, such as the Five-Factor Model of personality, are assessed and measured. Armed with this knowledge, students will learn the major instruments that are used to assess personality and mental disorders in clinical practice and get hands-on experience at administering, scoring, and interpreting scores on these measures. This course will provide material that will be highly beneficial for those seeking a career in the mental health field.

Here are the Summer 2015 PSY course options.  It is a good mix of classroom-based and distance courses. The distance courses are fully online, with NO on-campus meetings or on-site exams.
