The final evaluation consists in an oral interview aimed to understand the student preparation on the topics of the course.
The vote obtained by the student, expressed in thirtieths, contributes to the vote of the integrative course, corresponding to the average of the votes obtained in each discipline (Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology).
The main objective is the knowledge of the essential aspects of psychopathology, classification of mental illnesses, clinical phenomena and the main practices for treatment with or without patient consent.
Another objective is the knowledge of treatments without consent (T.S.O). Which are a very delicate moment in the health practice of the basic practitioner.
It is also proposed to make known how the sense given to "crazy" behaviors leads to coherent intervention initiatives. The normal / pathological relationship and the various psychopathological (biological, phenomenological, psychodynamic, sociological, anthropological) implications involve different conceptions of the disease.
Finally, make the distinction between psychosis and neurosis clear, a distinction which, while being little used, is a key point of reference for the clinician in his practice.
Give to the students basic notions of clinical psychology to manage relationship with the patient, psychological assessment and diagnostic process.
