NURS 544 - Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment of Mental Health Conditions


3 Credits
This course addresses individual diagnosis from a variety of perspectives: biologic, developmental, environmental, cultural and interpersonal. It will provide students with a broad theoretical base for understanding psychopathology, from not only an individual, descriptive, symptom perspective as presented in the most current Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM) but also from a contextual systemic perspective including developmental hallmarks, familial patterns and socio-cultural contributors. This ability to diagnose will form a beginning foundation for treatment planning associated with various diagnostic categories.
