TRAUMA AND MEMORY

PSY450S.01

Critical examination of the empirical research on and theoretical assumptions and logic about memory for trauma in normal and clinical populations. Topics include claims and data concerning ongoing debates about accuracy, narrative coherence, involuntary versus voluntary memory, the effect of extremes of emotion on memory and the posttraumatic stress disorder diagnosis. Levels of analysis range from neural substrates, through behavior and thought processes to the social construction of memory and trauma. Prior course work in either cognitive or personality or clinical psychology is desirable. Instructor: Rubin
