Throughout this course we will explore a wide variety of topics such as the impact of human behavior and psychological concepts such as human development, social psychology, personality and abnormal behavior. As we progress through our four units, we will be approaching this course from a clinical perspective. By maintaining this perspective, we can keep an open mind and understand the rationale behind why certain individuals choose to make conscious decisions.
