Evolved This Way: Evolutionary Approaches to Clinical Psychology
While evolutionary perspectives have been elucidating almost every area within psychology over the last several decades, clinical psychology has been, in some ways, one of the most difficult domains for evolution to break into. This talk will discuss some of the ways evolutionary psychology can illuminate the way we understand, classify, and treatment mental disorders.
