Psychology - Advanced Level 4
Have you ever wondered why the happy nine-month-old baby who always used to greet you with smiles and laughs has suddenly started crying as soon as you approach?
Have you ever found out why you are afraid of spiders, and what you can do to cure yourself?
Have you ever despaired of the fact that there is so much prejudice and discrimination in the world and wondered what can be done about it?
Have you ever watched in horror as a six-year-old watches the latest blood-thirsty "cops and robbers" programme on the television and then immediately starts thumping and shooting everybody, and wondered just what effects such violent television programmes might have on a child?
Have you ever watched a week-old baby apparently studying intently the people and objects around them and wondered what on earth they make of their new world and just what thoughts, if any, might be going through their mind?
If you have answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then you'll find this course a source of constant fascination as we examine a wide range of psychological topics and answer all of these questions.
