This unit is one of the two introductory units of psychology - the scientific study of mental processes and behaviour. Together these units introduce students to a wide variety of the psychological concepts and theories, and current research findings that are used to explain behaviour.
The unit focuses on the history of psychology, major psychology sub-disciplines, and major theoretical perspectives in psychology, research methods used by psychologists, health, wellbeing, learning and memory, thought and language, motivation and emotions, personality social cognition, and interpersonal processes. This unit introduces students to the theoretical underpinnings of understanding human development and behaviour and how each approach applies to diverse contexts and aligns with the ethics, values and principles of psychology.
