CLINICAL FOUNDATIONS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SCIENCE

PSY1CFP

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject we will explore clinical approaches in psychology, which will orient the student to the evidence underpinning the practice of the discipline. We will focus on personality and what makes a person unique, how people work together in groups including couples, small groups or crowds and what happens to a person when they develop a mental illness and what we can do to treat these conditions. We will also examine the processes that drive a person to do things that they do and how they feel about them, and examine the impact of culture on mental processing and the nature of intercultural diversity.
