Overview of course

This course will further expand on topics covered in the introduction to psychology course. Topics covered will include an overview of moral and child development and how growth and closed mind sets affect learning and how this impacts the way in which we deal with situations throughout our life. Students will consider how memory works via developing schemas and how we can improve the retrieval of information and why we fail to recall information. We will look at phobias and depression and how they are treated via medication and biological techniques as well as CBT therapies.

What will I learn?

The course will look at the following topics and areas of psychology: Recap: Psychodynamic, Behaviourist, Cognitive, Biological & Humanist perspectives of psychology; Ethics of psychological experimentation; Abnormality with case studies of anorexia nervosa; Growth and closed mind-sets; Moral development theory; Memory and Short term - long term and how we process our surroundings with case studies on 'looked but failed to see' accidents; Depression and modes of treatments; Phobias and modes of treatments; Introduction to counselling techniques and the role of a councillor.

Who is the course for?
