Five Big Ideas in Psychology non-credit course begins
- Tuesday, April 3, 2018 from 10:00am to 12:00pm
- Hope Lutheran Church
Each week we will examine a different "big idea". We'll take up: You are more than your brain--the roles of emotions and your body in "thinking". How peers and neighborhood influence children's outcomes; and are they more important than personality traits or birth order? Making decisions and judgments using mental short cuts--do they make us dumb or smart? Evolutionary psychology's attempt to explain everything. Applying psychology--the power of placebos, evidence based practice, the replication crisis. At our first meeting class members will have an opportunity to weigh in about a topic they would like to hear about and so possibly influence my list.
The course meets for five weeks on Tuesdays from 10am to noon, April 3 through May 1. The course is open to the public; Wonderlust members receive a $35 discount.
