Description: This course is designed to introduce the learner to the theoretical and practical discipline of psychology. The goal of the course is to enable learners to view their lives and interactions from a psychological perspective, employing scientific methods and research information. We will explore the following sub-fields of psychology: biology, states of consciousness, learning, memory, motivation, personality, disorders, and treatment. We will view them through the lenses of the major perspectives of psychology: biological, psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral and humanistic. Improving one’s well-being and social interaction will be part of our process, in class. This course will enable you to base your personal and world views more on scientific principles, rather than simple opinion.
