Theories of Personality and Psychotherapy
Prerequisite: PSYC200. An advanced review of cutting-edge research in humans and animals aimed at understanding the psychological and biological mechanisms underlying stable individual differences in temperament and personality (T&P) and determining their role in adult and child psychopathology, with a major focus on anxiety disorders, depression, and addiction. We will discuss the developmental origins of T&P, measurement issues, fundamental dimensions, heritability, relevance to psychopathology and intervention (treatment and prevention), and broader implications for public policy. Restricted to PSYC majors only.
