Psychosocial Theory and Practice

Monday 19th March from 10am - 12pm
Barking Learning Centre
Room 115, 2 Town Square,
Barking IG11 7NB

Are you interested in what makes people tick? Are you fascinated by how we develop throughout our lives from birth to old age and the relationships between individuals and their society? Are you a 'people' person and want to study life from a unique mix of psychological, psychoanalytic, sociological and cultural perspectives in order to take these skills in to employment or a career? Do you enjoy discovering the mysteries of human behaviour and understanding the complicated emotions we have such as love, joy, guilt and shame? The Psychosocial Theory and Practice course is about the real world, exploring real life issues that impact lives such as mental health, 'race', youth, media, gender, ageing, inequalities and surveillance.

This taster will be delivered by Dr Heather Price, Senior Lecturer in Psychosocial Theory & Practice and Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Psychosocial Studies with Professional Practice. Heather has a teaching background in primary education and special educational needs.
