Courses
Psychology Topics #7: Grandparents, Parents & Teenagers
This course looks at how, on one hand, values are transmitted down the generations; on the other hand, values are shaped by cultural and societal elements. There are also individual temperamental and experiential factors that lead to value variations within generations and even within close-knit families. Using the material on this course, participants will be able to identify the causes of values conflicts between parents and their children – especially teenagers. For grandparents, generational values shifts can seem bewildering. This course will give older people the knowledge to understand how and why these shifts occur and some ideas on how they can stay ‘in tune’ with their children and grandchildren.

Psychology Topics #8: Politics/Conflict Management
The first part of this course looks at sociopsychological explanations of how and why people tend towards particular political preferences. It also looks at how political systems are changing and why longstanding traditional party allegiances are breaking down. The relationship of intelligence, brain structure and political preference is explored: certain brains prefer certain politics – myth or reality? The second part of the course looks at how to manage conflicts – from the micro (eg: a husband and wife locked into a long-running dispute) to the macro (eg: countries threatening each other with war). Some key conflict management models will be explored – including the one used to end Apartheid in South Africa. Participants will have the opportunity to consider their own conflict patterns in a safe environment.
