Why do people think and act the way they do?

Why are some people miserable and others happy for no reason?

How does the human mind work, how do we learn, and how does memory work?

Why does society and the media have so much influence on people?

We’ll cover all of this and more in this Introduction to Psychology course!

The key to unlocking success and happiness in life is UNDERSTANDING YOURSELF—including why you think, feel and act the way you do. The best way to learn about yourself is to understand psychology and then apply it to your own life. In fact, most people who enter the psychology field are initially drawn to it out of an interest in understanding and improving themselves.

Most of human behavior and experience takes place unconsciously, meaning we aren’t aware of WHY we feel or act the way we do. By learning what psychology is and how the human mind works, we become CONSCIOUS of what is taking place INSIDE of us and how this influences what we experience in life. This course teaches the foundation of psychology and provides a framework for understanding yourself AND human behavior in general.

Once you understand the power of your mind, and how it works, you can use it to consciously create the life you desire, as well as help those around you.

This course will also help students enrolled in AP Psychology and college-level Introduction to Psychology courses by providing reinforcement of concepts in a more interesting way with a fun professor! It is also a great course for anyone interested in pursuing a career in psychology.

About the Professor: Joeel A. Rivera is a former Psychology Instructor with over a decade in the field of Psychology.
