3/2006 - 6/2006 PSYC 504 Research Methods for Clinical Psychology
4 Quarter Units. This course is an introduction to the methods used in psychology research, with an emphasis on clinical psychology. Its goal is to make you a better-informed judge of research and to give you the skills needed to perform your own research. Among the methods you will learn about are internal and external validity, experimental designs, control and comparison groups, observational designs, case study and single-case designs, and ethical issues. You are strongly encouraged to settle on a doctoral project idea in the initial stages of this course so that you can begin applying the assignments toward completing that project.
1/2006 - 3/2006 PSYC 511 Psychometric Foundations
3 Quarter Units. This course is an exploration of psychological measurement. We will explore the theoretical derivation, construction, and use of psychological measures, as well as discuss how the measure of psychological phenomena fits in to the larger scheme of science. Emphasis will be placed on item analysis, reliability, validity, and factor structure. The course objective is for the students to develop the foundations in psychometrics needed by anyone who will be developing, evaluating, interpreting, selecting, or simply reading about psychological measures. The development of conceptual theory will be supported by hands-on projects where teams of students will develop their own measures and collect data, and then conduct reliability assessment, item analysis, validity coefficient estimation, and factor analysis on their measures.
10/2005 - 6/2006 PSYC 564 Advanced Topics: Grant Writing
2 Quarter Units. This course teaches grant-writing skills, with a focus on grants that graduate students can apply for.
9/2005 - 12/2005 PSYC 581/L Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies/Practicum
3 Quarter Units. This course is an introduction to and exploration of the methods used in behavior and cognitive behavior therapy. This course will focus on cognitive behavior therapy. Its goal is to give you useful tools and skills in the practice of clinical psychology. You will then learn the basics of cognitive behavior theory, and select an application area that fits your own interests and study cognitive behavior techniques that have been adapted for that population. Since new skills are best learned through actual experience, you will carry out several projects designed to simulate clinical work, including making a case presentation to the class.
