I like these lectures, and hope to give more examples about each PD

I like these lectures, and hope to give more examples about each PD

Simple, easy to recall, and puting quizzes by the end of every video is a very good way to memorize
By HICHEM B. on 05. January 2020 for Psychiatric Assessment

The lectures are simple, short videos that doesn't take much time, and I like the articles that come with it

Not satisfactory
By Noah S. on 04. January 2020 for OCD: Types, Assessment and Treatment

I gave this rating due to the fact that the lecturer reads from the slides and often gets sidetracked from actually explaining the material. This gives the impression that there is a very poor understanding of the material being taught as it simply does not flow naturally. The slides are somewhat descriptive and that makes this series passable.

Thank you, great content!

Nurain Love the clear explanation. The speed is also nice and I was able to follow it. The visual aids really help as well.
