Robot narrator

The narrator sounds like a high-end text-to-speech program. I'm one chapter in and lack of variance in her tone and cadence make this audiobook a bit of a slog to get through. The content is informative, and as psych-NP student it provides a great review of 'high-yield' content, but I think I would be more engaged if I just read the book aloud to myself---which kind of defeats the point!

A few errors in Chapter 10

Ch. 10 Question 6 @ 48:11. Question 6 reads - which substance abuse disorder has a craving for pain killers? A: The answer given - amphetamine abuse disorder. The CORRECT answer should be OPIOID abuse disorder. Opioids are a type of pain killer. Chapter 10 @ 49:24 The question reads - which substance abuse disorder is treated with Antabuse? A: the answer given was tobacco use disorder. The CORRECT answer should be ALCOHOL abuse disorder. Tobacco use disorder can be treated with nicotine replacements such as gum, lozenges, or patches.

Ok for students

Some of the answers are a bit confusing and inconsistent. However it is ok for a review at 1.5x speed or faster. Also some massively mispronounced terms.

To much is given, much is expected

The products created by AudioLearn are top notched. However, it is impossible for lectures in a traditional college setting just to lecture their with out providing their students with the necessary PowerPoints for the students to have or Textbooks for their students to purchase. So, Audio lectures alone without physical content to engage with is not adequate enough to allow students to succeed. As a student in graduate school, I appeal to the leadership of Audio Learn to make accessible the contents needed for every student to fully learn and to become successful. Thank you for considering.

To those intersted in Psychiatry or Clinical Psych

I highly recommend this audiobook for medical and psychology students or anyone interested in understanding what a mental illness entails from a diagnostic standpoint. The content is similar to what one would learn in an abnormal psychology class. Each chapter follows the formula of giving an overview of a disorder category such as depressive disorders or sleep disorders and then goes into detail on the most prevalent types of disorders in the category i.e. major depressive disorder or insomnia. For each specific disorder discussed, it goes through the entire diagnostic criteria as found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5th edition (DSM-5). Going through the diagnostic criteria can be rather tedious as it is a list of symptoms being read off but that is important information in diagnosing a mental disorder. I found the information to be accurate and up to date and an excellent study help in memorizing the DSM criteria.

PTSD is not classified under Anxiety d/o

In the DSM-5, released in 2013, Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders was removed from the Anxiety Disorders and made a Classification heading of its own. The test question in Chapter 1 is wrong and states it is a subheading under Anxiety Disorders. This testing material was released in 2017 and needs to be corrected. I hope Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders is significantly and appropriately addressed, based on the research of the past 20-25 years. If it’s not, that would be a major weakness — since it’s groundbreaking and likely the genesis of many mental illnesses. I’m also hoping epigenetics and generational trauma, as it relates to PTSD, addiction, and neurodevelopmental disorders, is sufficiently covered based on recent science too. I know I haven’t listened to the entire book yet, but I’ve studied Childhood/Developmental Trauma for years now, and it’s a major recent area of research study since the Kaiser-Permanente ACE study was released in the 1990s. So, I certainly hope this Audiobook covers research of the past 25 years, since it is exceptionally significant in current knowledge. Also, be watching for Psychiatric research related to COVID-19, and delusions about Presidential candidates. I hope those topics are being studied in an objective fashion! Because there’s a lot of cognitive distortions and a vast increase in mental health problems arising from current events.

Psychology

Great book for going over the topics, but you have to have some understanding already of psychology.

Simplistic

This audio book sounds like it is read from a college freshman textbook for people majoring in a field not related to mental health.

Not a "crash course" just a crash.

You won't learn anything from this unless you have had zero training around mental illness. It's not in depth at all with explanations and feels rushed. I didn't learn anything much new to gain any value from this course for the price.
