Mental Health and Individual Differences PSY124

Introduction

Human behaviour is not universal. Why do individuals behave the way they do? Lecture content will introduce and explore theoretical descriptions of individual differences such as personality and intelligence that can impact behaviour in a variety of contexts, as well as some of the factors which can influence psychological well-being, such as stress and coping. This unit also introduces the study of abnormal behaviour, including a critical consideration of psychological disorders and the nature of evidence-based interventions. Tutorials will build on lecture content, support reflective practice, and will facilitate the development of basic communication skills including counselling and professional communication.
