Psychology: how we differ as individuals

Ref: C3840415

This course will look at how we differ by looking at individuals with unusual conditions or skills in the areas of personality, perception, learning and others as time allows. Case studies will allow us to see how the variation in some tasks can make us reassess what is “normal”. Studying mental illnesses in this light and using historical studies will extend this idea. There will be chances to see and experience different ways of thinking and learning and the group will be given some tasks (optional) to illustrate these points. It is a fun relaxed approach with all welcome.
