MCCP 641 - Adult Psychological Services I: History and Concept of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities

This course analyzes the concepts, ideologies and values involved in the mental health and developmental disabilities areas, with emphasis on their historical development. Particular attention is paid to the tensions of prevention vs. amelioration, of fusion or separation of childhood and adult issues, and to the separation or integration of mental health and developmental disabilities. The confusion of these issues with issues of gender, social class, race, and ethnicity is also examined.
