Students in CLPS 0210 report that their textbook has gotten kind of informal in the captions of its photos.
“Trust us, everyone has crazy dreams sometimes,” read one of the weirdly casual captions accompanying images of brain scans. “We don’t need old Dr. Freud to tell us that!”
“Having depressive thoughts is totally normal,” said another caption, desperately trying to keep students engaged with the material on psychodynamic approaches to bipolar disorder. “Remember when you posted that killer Instagram picture and didn’t get a lot of likes? That really sucked, huh?”
Additional reports have indicated that the textbook is also trying to use old New Yorker cartoons to lighten the mood.
