Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy

The Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy deals with issues of mental disorders (such as anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders) and the psychological aspects of physical illnesses and disorders. Clinical psychology and psychotherapy includes pathopsychology (ie, symptomatology, etiology, pathogenesis, prognosis, classification, epidemiology), diagnostics, psychological intervention (i.e., prevention, psychotherapy, rehabilitation) and psychosocial health care. The analysis of psychological impairments can be undertaken at different levels of the system (for example, individual, family or organization). In practice, clinical psychology and psychotherapy includes the social, legal, and political context in which it develops.
