Dr. John H. Morgan, Karl Mannheim Professor of the History and Philosophy of the Social Sciences and Director of Doctoral Programs in Clinical Psychotherapy, is offering a new e-tutorial entitled, Clinical Psychopathology and Personality Disorders.  This e-tutorial is based on Dr. Morgan’s most recent publication, Psychopathology: A Clinical Guide to Personality Disorders.

Description:  For the professional counselor, whether in parish ministry or private practice, dealing with personality disorders constitutes the lion’s share of the counseling enterprise and case load for both pastors and counselors.  This course is designed as a practitioner’s guide for the facilitation of a clinical and professional approach to the diagnostic assessment of the personality disorders explicated in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.  The mental health community has suspended the use of the term “mental illness” in deference to “mental disorders” and for pastors and clinical counselors this shift has enhanced the effectiveness of the diagnostic assessment and treatment agenda.  This course is specifically created for the advanced doctoral student in counseling psychology to assist these professionals in the recognition and description of personality disorders recognized by the American Psychiatric Association in the DSM source book.

    Please give Dr John my warmest good wishes for a very Happy Christmas and and a good and prosperous 2018. 1991 and an MBA in Church Management, with a journey from Wellington New Zealand to South Bend, proved very rewarding. We finished the Cathedral debt free. I have great memories.
