The cornerstone of modern counseling and clinical psychology lies in our understanding of human behavior through personality theory and psychopathology. This program will explore the central personality theories from a traditional perspective as well as a multicultural perspective. We will examine the relationship of personality theories to abnormal behavior, develop an understanding of the DSM IV classification system and other diagnostic methods, and use films to explore the diversity of human behavior.

CRN: 40185

Embedded in ancient Sanskrit philosophy from India, Orissi dance is a holistic approach to health: reflexology, physical movement and stretches (similar to Hatha yoga), mind-body connections, and emotional well-being. The study, based on ancient texts, equates aesthetics with health and deals with concepts of rhythm, centering, breathing, and sustained movement as conducive to preventive care, a sustainable way of life. It also encourages emotional well-being.

The first two weeks on campus, students will learn and practice ways of seeing and drawing the inner and outer landscape. We will study a broad spectrum of environmental art and practice this form of constructing sculpture out of the studio. August 12 through August 17 we will be on retreat, staying at a hostel near ancient forests and the ocean, on the Olympic Peninsula. Students will do drawing, photo documentation and sculpture - all from the natural, the abandoned and the ravaged places in the landscape. Each student will create a body of work, uniquely their own, to be presented in a group show on campus at sessions end. A basic drawing course is recommended, yet determination and a positive attitude will suffice for lack of previous experience. As an option, students may remain in Olympia and complete their own body of work for the group show, to receive 4 credits.
