This subject takes a scientist–practitioner approach to understanding psychological disorders in adults. Specifically, students learn about common mental health presentations in adults with reference to: the aetiology of the disorder; assessment and diagnostic issues; and evidence-based treatments. This knowledge is presented in the context of the relevant ethical, legal and professional standards, as well as consideration of cross-cultural factors.

Successful completion of this subject is required for progression to all second-year subjects in the Master of Clinical Psychology (C04300).
