Excellent explanation of schizophrenia's place in the spectrum of psychotic disorders
By Nicholas C. on 05. March 2020 for Schizophrenia Spectrum and other Psychotic Disorders – Psychological Disorders (PSY)

Dr. Ahuja clearly illustrates the defining characteristics of schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, as this lecture translates the DSM-V material into a brief review of key points.

Extremely Comprehensive!
By Tyler P. on 27. March 2018 for Understanding Psychological Disorders: Biomedical vs. Biopsychosocial Approaches – Psychological Disorders (PSY)

I extremely enjoyed this lecture. He is very clear about what he is stating, and he states it in a very comprehensive manner, which is extremely crucial if you have yet to have medical talk down pat. I learned a lot, and I do have learning disabilities, so it can be hard at times. But this isn't one of those times! Love love love it! Much appreciated!
