This course examines the categories of DSM-IV as a widely accepted classification approach, and it ranges from childhood to old age. Emphasis is made on the theoretical explanations offered by different psychological approaches regarding disorders, rather than descriptions. In appropriate cases, the course focuses on biological influencing factors. The course starts with a test on the historical evolution of the concepts of normality and abnormality, and ends with an analysis of the main vital crises. It also includes activities that help illustrate the concepts of the course.
