Event description

Description

A series of seminar-style classes looking at Psychology in the world around us for adult/retired Lifelong Learners. Open to adults of all ages.

Unlike many academic disciplines or research areas that focus upon (wonderfully) unique and remote things (like the surface of Mars, the components of atoms, or distant ocean currents) Psychology studies human beings – our biology, brain neurology, our social and personal behaviours and our inner psychological functioning or malfunctioning. We wonder daily why people behave the way they do, what we can do to encourage positive development and social interaction and discourage or reduce negative personal and social situations and outcomes. In other words, we ALL do some sort of Psychology all the time. In this seminar we take a look at a number of recent media articles that talk about human behaviour from a Psychological perspective and which also draw upon or directly focus upon current psychological research findings.

Each week we will talk about the Psychological research and theory behind stories in the news and around us. Participants can suggest issues and articles that we can talk about and we can talk about anything from Donald Trump to the development of preschoolers (not so different!) to the human brain and mental illness and wellness and wellbeing. Psychology is a VERY broad discipline so there will be LOTS to talk about.

We will meet 4 times for 1.5 hours each time on the dates below. Mike will send out possible seminar (new item based) topics a few days before each meeting in case particpants would like to look into a topic before getting together.
