The biological approach to psychology simply means that researchers study physiology to understand human behaviour, and how it's all interconnected! 

The Biological Approach
10:01

So what can explain human psychology - the behaviour that is observable or the thinking processes that guide behaviour? Let's discuss it here!

Behaviourist and Cognitive Approaches

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!

Person-Centred Approaches
08:21

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 :)

Debates in Psychology
12:35
+ Social Psychology
3 lectures 28:33

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!)

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?

How do we 'think'? What's the difference between 'directed' and 'undirected' thinking? Take this lecture and find out! 

Thinking (Cognition)
07:09

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 :)

Preview 09:42

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!

Problem-Solving and Artificial Intelligence
08:58
+ Child Development
5 lectures 33:01

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!
