Psychology 

The only normal people you know are the ones you don't know very well. - Alfred Adler

What is Psychology?

Have you ever wondered why people do the things that they do? How could atrocities like the Holocaust happen? Why do teens form cliques? Why are some people shy and other people the "life of the party"? Why do people develop mental disorders and how can they be helped? Can seeing violence on television and in video games make children violent?

These are just a few examples of the many different types of questions that psychologists try to answer. Basically, psychology is about trying to understand why people do what they do. It's about understanding human behavior. For this reason, you may find this course is about the "real world". By studying psychology, we can better understand ourselves, other people, and our interaction with the world. The content of the course can provide you with information about issues that all individuals encounter not only concerning themselves but in their relationships with friends, family, and acquaintances.

Please remember that you are in control of your success in this class.

 Take responsibility for your work and be accountable for your actions.
