Inhoud vak

The first step in psychological treatment is recognition: you need to be
able to recognize and classify the symptoms and problems that a patient
presents in order to formulate a diagnosis and provide the right type of
treatment. Therefore, this course will equip you with a good
understanding and critical awareness of the incidence, prevalence and
presentation of common mental health and neurological disorders that
develop throughout the lifespan. Additionally, we will discuss how these
disorders can be explained from a biological, psychological or social
perspective and what risk and protective factors may play a role in its
development. Finally, this course teaches you how to use diagnostic
classification systems and how to make differential diagnoses. This
knowledge forms the essential base that is needed to become a
well-equipped mental health professional.

During the lectures, experts in the field will give you an in-depth
overview of common mental health and neurological disorders, its
explanatory models and potential risk and protective factors that play a
role in the development or maintenance. Additionally, you will learn to
differentiate between disorders and apply the classification systems
(DSM-5 and ICD-11) to clinical cases in order to increase awareness and
recognition of different symptomatology.
