Fundamentals of Psychology
What is learning psychology? Why do we need to learn it? What does it teach us about ourselves and others? Why do some people have more success with others than with ourselves? What does it tell us about ourselves and others?
This course explains the nature of human learning and behavior, the structure and components of memory, learning, motivation, fear, pleasure, frustration, fear of abandonment, and social learning. Our understanding of learning has been enhanced by the development of evidence-based models and techniques. The course also introduces the critical concept of individual difference, and shows how individuals can overcome differences to achieve their goals.
Learning about learning, memory, motivation, and learning styles is important for all students, but especially for those who are struggling with mental illness, substance use, or any mental illness. Anyone can benefit from learning about learning, and anyone can benefit from learning about learning. This course is the first in a series on the subjects of learning, memory, motivation, and learning styles, and in this course, we will cover the individual differences that are characteristic of each of these characteristics.
Those who complete the course will understand how the individual differences are caused by specific characteristics of the environment, such as the way that we were raised, our environment, and the way that we interact with the environment. We will also look at individual differences that are characteristic of each of the four individual characteristics of learning: cognitive, linguistic, affective, and creative. We will also look at individual differences that are characteristic of each of the four individual characteristics of motivation: hard, soft, reasoned, and creative. We will also look at individual differences that
