Introduction to Psychology

** Top Five Most Popular Course **

Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behaviour, that seeks to explain our thoughts, emotions, and the impact of influences on our behaviour.  The fascinating human mind, often referred to as ‘the seat of human consciousness’, is the intellectual component that enables us to be aware of our world.  It is that with which we mentally process stimuli and that which enables us to think, reason, plan, feel, and make sense of our external and internal environment.

An Introduction to Psychology, taught by an academically accredited, professionally qualified subject-specialist lecturer in psychology, begins with an overview of brain anatomy, neurology, illusions, and delusions, and proceeds through sensory information processing, memory, forgetting & amnesia, Learning Theories, Classical & Operant Conditioning, stereotyping, prejudice & discrimination, social influence & obedience, an analysis of aggression, non-verbal communication (NVC), the development of personality, and sex & gender identity, into psychopathology & therapies.  On this course, you will learn about core principles in psychology, be guided through explanations of traditional and contemporary theories and experiments, and discover how psychological knowledge applies to our real-world experiences.

For anyone wishing to attain a greater understanding of the human mind and how it works, this fully comprehensive Introduction to Psychology provides an excellent opportunity to study core psychological principles and theories, to begin or advance more extensively your knowledge of social, behavioural, cognitive, and developmental psychology.  The value in taking this course is immeasurable in both the wealth of information taught and its applicability for life-long learning.  By the end of this course, you will have gained greater insight into how the mind functions, supported your educational and career development, be able to use the learning in personal, professional and therapeutic settings, develop a deeper understanding of human behaviour, and learned more about how your own mind works.
