Child Psychopathology | Spalding University Catalog

PSY-335: Child Psychopathology

3 credit hours
This course is designed to give students a broad understanding of mental health illnesses that affect children and, by extension, their families. The course has a strong critical thinking focus to push students to understand the impact of family and society on childhood psychopathology, cross-cultural issues, and the challenges of working with these children in schools and other settings. The course is geared towards students who will eventually be psychologists, mental health counselors, social workers, pediatric nurses, and teachers, but anyone who works with children, has children of their own, or plans to have children someday will benefit from taking this course. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.

Prerequisites: PSY 303 is strongly recommended, but not required.
