In this course, you will be introduced to various psychological approaches and how they were developed in the socio-political, cultural, ecological, and spiritual contexts. The course will give you the opportunity to understand psychological thinking from a wider philosophical perspective. You will have the opportunity to deepen your philosophical views on the development of the human psyche, explore a variety of approaches, and be able to understand yourself within the socio-economical and political context of your society.
Learners are advised to bring the ability to expand their perceptions and ideas about themselves and the world around them. And the ability to challenge fixed ideas and be open to challenging new ones. The course will encourage you to find your own definitions and understandings of the subject taught. And to develop your own individual understanding.
SPECIAL NOTE: There are videos included in this course and it is constructed in a way that an independent learner can navigate it and understand the teachings within. However, if you are in need of faculty-led sessions, we will record those and insert them the next time this course is scheduled to run in Live Virtual Classroom.
