TEXTBOOK

For Spring 2011 semester, we are using a textbook called "Essentials of Abnormal Psychology 5th edition" by Durand and Barlow. If you want to get started reading it this summer, you can borrow a copy from the GCC Library Reserve. Just go to the circulation desk. If you are shopping around for the best price, be sure your book has the ISBN 978-0-495-59982-1.

I believe that students differ in their learning styles. Therefore I employ multiple approaches to learning (e.g. textual, auditory, video, etc.) Most importantly, this class incorporates an active learning approach, so the format will involve much interactivity among students. There will be frequent small and whole class discussion.

 

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION

I am frequently asked for letters of recommendation from both current and former students. My policy is that I only write letters of recommendation for students who I have collaborated with and supervised and the student has not just met my expectations, but exceeded them in an extraordinary way. I will approach the student to offer a letter of recommendation. If I haven't offered you a letter, please don't ask.
