In its relatively short history, psychology – the understanding of the human mind – has changed direction, focus and approach several times. Beginning with a review of some of the dominant perspectives that have been developed to understand the psychology of the 'normal' mind, we then shift attention to address how these perspectives can be applied to 'abnormal' minds. We focus on a variety of clinical conditions including schizophrenia, sub-clinical psychopathy, autism, depression and anxiety, contrasting differing models of explanation and differing approaches in treatment. This is a double course which can only be taken with A34 in ISP Term III.
