Right ButtonIntroduction to Psychology: Understanding Yourself & Others
From an Integrated SocioPsychology perspective, this 10-week ‘night school’ type programme incorporates key elements of Integrated SocioPsychology within the frame of a general introduction to the field of Psychology. Topics include:-

  • the concept of self
  • the importance of beliefs and values
  • the impact of gender differences on male-female relationships
  • the criticality of attachments during child development

Academic enough to provide a basis for further (serious) study, the level of study is still light enough for the more casual learner to make practical use of the knowledge and skills taught without feeling intimidated by too much ‘technical stuff’. The aim is to learn while having fun!

Psychology Topics #5: Memory, Prejudice & Discrimination
From an Integrated SocioPsychology perspective, the first part of this 10-week ‘night school’ type programme explores models of memory and how memory and forgetting work. It considers practical applications from how friends and partners mishear one another, resulting in discussions turning into rows, to the reliability of eyewitness testimony in court proceedings.
The second part of the course looks at the difference between prejudice and discrimination. It explores the nature of prejudice and considers strategies for undermining racism and other forms of ethnic and religious discrimination.

Psychology Topics #6: Biological Psychology, Consumerism & Shopping
From an Integrated SocioPsychology perspective, the first part of this 10-week ‘night school’ type programme looks at how our biology influences our thoughts, behaviour and experiences. From hormones regulating a woman’s cycle and predicating aggression in males to the relationship between mental illness and brain dysfunctions, our biology has a profound expect on our psychologies. The course also considers Epigenetics and the redundancy of the ‘Nature vs Nurture Debate’.
The second part of the course considers the modern Western phenomenon of consumerism as a key element in modern society. From that macro perspective, the course scales down to explore individual motivations behind the drive to shop.
