Psychology For YouTutor: Chris Scudamore
The course consists of two self-contained terms. Material will be completely new and equally accessible to both new students and returners from previous years. Psychology is the study of behaviour. Possible topics include; developmental issues such as the mid-life crisis, cognitive functions in youth and old age and how attitudes are formed and questioned; gender roles and relationships; how groups think and behave, including the inevitability of conflict and inequality; the importance of social media and the changing nature of attachment in the modern family. However as previously it should be possible to reflect the specific interests of the group and to examine aspects of behaviour currently in the news.
