Course Overview

This course introduces various approaches to emotion with a focus on the current theories and research in the field. Students will gain an understanding of the structure, function, and development of emotional processes, the interplay between emotional and cognitive processes, and the underlying neurological mechanisms. As human social emotions are a significant component of both psychological well-being and psychological distress, we will examine the role of social emotions in relation to positive psychology, mental health, and psychopathology. The emotional development and functioning of deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind people will be addressed throughout the course, particularly as they relate to clinical practice and empirical research. Some topics and readings may be more or less emphasized depending upon student interests.
