The Inherited-Insanity Illusion

16 Nov

Via Scoop.itHealthcare Continuing Education

This new 3-hour online course critically evaluates the research alleging the inherited, genetically-determined causes of mental disorders, behavioral disorders, substance abuse and intelligence. There are serious methodological flaws in all of this research, including the confounding of nature and nurture, i.e., genetics vs. environment. This course will discuss the significant symptom overlap among mental disorders and its implications for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Finally, it will propose a synthesis of nature and nurture that will take both sides into account, resolving many problems of diagnosis and treatment in mental health. Course #30-60 | 2011 | 33 pages | 15 posttest questions
