This course will introduce participants to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders as defined by the DSM (4th edition, text revised) classification system. In addition to differential diagnosis using the DSM-IV-TR, the course will address the current understanding of etiology, prevention, and treatment issues related to psychopathology.
