You will enjoy taking this course if you find Psychology-related topics (e.g. child and social development, thinking and memory, human behaviour, etc) as your biggest interest!
And remember, you can contact your tutor with any question at any time! Happy learning :)
In this lecture you will become familiar with various definitions of 'psychology' and what branches of psychology have been used in research today.
The biological approach to psychology simply means that researchers study physiology to understand human behaviour, and how it's all interconnected!
So what can explain human psychology - the behaviour that is observable or the thinking processes that guide behaviour? Let's discuss it here!
This type of approach is mainly based on 'humanistic' work of Carl Rogers and his followers. It's not only about science, but about a human touch too!
There are several ongoing debates that exist within psychology. They are unresolvable and ongoing because each side has a valid argument for many years now. Let's have a look at them here :)
Why some people like to tell others what to do and others are easy to conform? Social influence is a fascinating area of social psychology to study and research.
Social condition is a research area that is concerned with how people think, memories, dream, plan, and anything that is related to using our mind (brains!)
In this lecture you will learn how psychology is used directly in various areas of life: hospitals, business, educational institutions and so on.
We form our perception of others instantly. Or do we? Let's discuss it in this lecture!
Attention means focusing on something that occupies our mind (and perhaps what is in front of us too). How can we keep our attention on something or someone for a longer period of time?
Memory is a very complex process that involves taking in a certain information, processing it, and then storing it in our memory. In this lecture we will discuss this process in a more detail.
This lecture is an introduction into the domain of 'research methods'. Research methods encompass many tools and techniques, and we'll start learning about all of that here!
In this lecture we will continue discussing the topic of 'memory', but with the focus on 'how and why we forget information'.
Language is what makes us different from animals. We use language to express our feelings, experiences and emotions. Let's discuss when and how we form language.
How do we 'think'? What's the difference between 'directed' and 'undirected' thinking? Take this lecture and find out!
Have you ever been interested in how we form our attitudes? Why do we have such different attitudes with other human beings to the same topics? What makes us so different in our thinking? Let's talk about it here :)
When we need to make some decision, we tend to go through an interesting process of specific type of 'thinking'. But what if some 'computer' will do all the thinking for us? Let's talk about 'problem-solving' and 'artificial intelligence' here!
The 'issues in child development' are connected to the 'debates in psychology' that we were discussing previously, so let's talk about 'Nature Vs Nurture' once again!
Children develop at different rate, but in a normal healthy development they all go through the same stages of 'cognitive development'. This is what we will be discussing in this lecture!
When do babies learn to speak? When do children start using correct grammar? Let's learn about it here!
In this lecture you will learn how we form impressions about others, how we influence and get influenced, and so much more!
In this lecture you will learn how do children (and adults!) develop their 'moral understanding', i.e. understanding 'what's right' and 'what's wrong'!
Where does 'abnormality' starts? When do we know when our behaviour is not 'desirable' or 'accepted' anymore? Let's start with definition of 'abnormality' in this lecture!
In this lecture you will learn about various types of treatments that are amiable today in psychiatry and psychology.
Emotional disorders are those disorders that are directly connected to 'emotions'. Emotional and behavioural disorders often go alongside each other. Let's discuss all of this here!
In this lecture you will learn about several research methods such as 'interviews', 'surveys', 'case studies', and much more!
In this lecture you will learn about several issues that you would need to consider when you are undertaking research.
In this lecture you will learn how to conduct research with both qualitative and quantitative data.
Here I would like to say 'Thank you' for taking my course! :)
Hey, my name is Elmira Strange, and I am Motivational Psychologist and Certified Life Coach. I am passionate about working with students who want to become online instructors and coaches.
My previous work involved Research Psychology and Lecturing at University (UK).
The unusual bit: I was born in Northern Kazakhstan (where it's freezing cold in winter -40C), then moved to Russia, then to the United Kingdom.
The interesting bit: I had a life-saving surgery and near-death experience in 2012. The near-death experience made me realise that we are here to share our knowledge, help each other, and enjoy this life.
My interests: Psychology, Motivation
My previous experience: Whilst I was working at University (Wales, UK) as a Senior Researcher and Psychology Lecturer (prior to Udemy), my focus was on 'Researching Stress in Families of Disabled Children' where I had to learn what makes people stressed and unhappy.
Since 2006 I am working as an 'online entrepreneur' as well: writing blogs and books, and now 'teaching online' which became my true passion. In my Udemy courses I combine my extensive knowledge of 'online entrepreneurship' and my passion for 'Motivational Psychology and Coaching'.
