Having Fun Diagnosing!

Posted by Ashley

Hi everyone! I'm baaaaack! Haha...
I was MIA last week because I had to fly to Lynchburg, Virginia to take my very LAST masters level class! The class format is called an "intensive" because students fly to Liberty University and cram one semester into one week... that's right... we learn what most students learn in 16 weeks in just 5 days! They don't call it an intensive for nothing! I have to say that I really enjoyed this class because it was all about diagnosis with regard to mental health disorders. It was crazy busy, but super interesting at the same time. There's a little book called the DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revised) that is considered the Bible for mental health practitioners and I became VERY comfortable with this textbook over the past week. After the first day, I realized that I could not find the mental disorder categories quickly enough, so I made a trip to Target to find some tabs to help me organize. As you can see from the photo below, I had a blast labeling each section. I think I may have discovered a personality disorder in myself... I may possibly have obsessive-compulsive tendencies!!! At least I acknowledge it, right?!?

Needless to say, the past week was one of my favorite classes ever, which was a great way to end my masters program! Now, I just have to begin working on my internship! The end is near!!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon!

I am a nurse, so I too, love these types of books! What is your major? Sounds like a fun class! Good luck!

Congrats Ashley! I bet if you had Midnight Dancing on you would have been distracted. Good thing I wasn't your roomie for the week. Have fun with your internship! You are going to be an awesome counselor.
