PSYC 359 Spring 2013 Anxiety Disorders: Responses to Danger, Both Real and Imagined

This is an advanced course on anxiety disorders that takes an in depth look at the theory and research on the normative psychological processes that influence responses to danger, both real and imagined. Specifically, it examines the empirical research on psychological responses to traumatic experiences, such as combat, rape, and concentration camp survival. Responses to perceived or imagined threats are also discussed as the underpinnings of such anxiety disorders as Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Specific Phobia and OCD. Discussions focus on commonalities and differences in empirically supported treatments for anxiety disorders as well as controversies in the field. This course is part of the "Gaudino Danger Initiative."
