SUMMER DSM-5 COURSE

The Winthrop School Psychology Program will be offering PSYC 690- “Applying DSM-5 to Children and Adolescents” again this coming summer. The course will include one introductory afternoon session at Winthrop the afternoon of Thursday, June 8th, followed by internet-based modules and submission of a real or simulated case study to which students have applied DSM-5 criteria. The texts will include the DSM-5 and DSM-5 in the Schools as well as some readings provided by the instructor.

Dr. Harriett Ford will teach the course. Dr. Ford is a school psychologist with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and is an adjunct instructor and supervisor at Winthrop. She was previously on the faculty at the University of Kentucky.

The South Carolina Board of Examiners for Licensure of Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Psycho-Educational Specialists has approved PSYC 690 as meeting its DSM requirement. The course will be offered at a special tuition and fee rate of $980, which represents over a 25% reduction from usual summer tuition rates. Those who are interested should complete and return the attached course registration form.

The course is limited to 20 students, so don’t delay in registering!
