No matter how resourceful a person might be in coping with problems, life inevitably involves stress. We all develop characteristic ways of responding to these situations and the course examines these responses to frustration. It also explores concepts such as abnormality, self-knowledge and voluntary control, neuroses, psychoses and personality disorders.
