X95: Uncovering Dark Corners of Human Psyche: Introduction to Abnormal Psychology. in Splash Spring 2021 (Apr. 17 - 18, 2021)
It is estimated that around 988 million people in the world had some form of mental or psychological disorders in 2018. One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. The cost of these psychological disorders, both in terms of personal suffering and socioeconomic burden, is astronomical. As long as psychopathology remains the stuff of myth and legend, rather than a target for empirical, scientific investigation, then we have little hope for preventing and treating these devastating disorders. So, throughout the course of the seminar, you will have the chance to become cartographers of the human psyche and mapping out these various forms of psychological disorders, and examine them broadly. We will try to understand what these disorders are (Description and Diagnosis) their causes (Etiology and Pathophysiology), and how best to treat them (Treatment).
