Hi folks,

The CSL 489 Psychopathology course scheduled for Spring 2014 currently does not have a lot of students enrolled and is at risk of being canceled. If you are thinking of taking this course (and it fits your schedule), I highly recommend taking it. Remember the next time it will be offered is in the Winter of 2015.

Some of you have likely already taken this class (please disregard) and a few of you may not meet all the prerequisites for it. As a reminder, the prerequisites for CSL 489 Psychopathology are as follows:
CSL 451 Legal & Ethical Issues
CSL 452 Introduction to the Counseling Profession
CSL 467 Counseling Theories
CSL 501 Counseling Skills

If you have questions, please let me know.
