Students will develop their understanding of: - The reasons why we have anxiety - How it benefits us - What anxiety is from a biological, psychological, and social perspective. - How anxiety disorders may develop from a biopsychosocial perspective - Proposed biological mechanisms of treatments. Students will also be exposed to the nuance of scientific research and learn some of the critical thinking skills required to navigate through the science world.
