Not updated for the DSM 5

For anyone interested in accurate informations, do not listen!!! These lectures are old and based on DSM 4 information. They have not been updated to reflect the newly published DSM 5.

excellent intro to abnormal psych

Lots of good, solid info for an intro class. Even 7 years on. Sound quality isn't great, but the lectures are fascinating and info packed enough to make up for it. The only negative reviews seem to be people who are only interested in very specific sections and not abnormal psych in general. If you are interested in the big picture and not just a part, this is for you.

Not impressed...

First of all I think it's extremely rude to start your class off insulting the city of Spokane. Calm down because Spokane is not that small. It is the second largest city in the state, so I question your education. It's one third the size of Portland, yet you make it sound like some tiny Podunk redneck town. It's actually a really great place and it's pretty big, so you either have never been there or you exaggerate more than anyone. These lectures are so so. I find a lot of episodes lacking actual historical facts, he just kind of rambles on about his opinions. Not sure what the point of recording only yourself is, when students are constantly asking questions, but you can't hear what they are saying. I guess it doesn't really matter since most of the time this professor has no idea. He literally answers their questions, "I don't know". Wow and you are qualified to teach a college course? According to who??
