Start learning how psychologists comprehend and study human nature and its disorders. One of the reasons we want to understand human nature is so we can help people with psychological disorders. This subject lays a foundation for understandings and further study in psychology.
You will learn how psychologists go about conceptualising and studying human nature, and how the brain works to produce thoughts, emotions and complex behaviour. We'll also look closely at how psychologists approach the diagnosis and treatment of the ‘common colds’ of psychopathology – anxiety and mood disorders.
