Psychology Topics #3: Crime & Depression with Keith Rice

This is one of two psychology topics courses this year which build on the Introductory course, ‘Understanding Yourself and Others’. It provides a more in-depth approach to helping you explore the specific interests under discussion or build knowledge of psychology and behavioural sciences. Attendance on the introductory course is helpful, but not essential, as recaps and additional study material will be provided. Crime is a major political and social issue, with the media obsessed with criminal activity and politicians vying with each other to offer solutions. The Crime sessions draw from biological, sociological & psychological factors to explain how people are motivated to turn to crime. The course explores the difference between crime & deviance, considers how deviance is often criminalised, and strategies for reducing crime & deviance will be explored. Depression is the second major cause of absenteeism at work and the blight of millions of lives. The Depression sessions considers what Depression is, including the differences between the clinical and common uses of the term. Possible causes of Depression are considered and gender differences in its incidence discussed. Options for treatment are investigated as well as strategies for how to be around someone who is depressed.. Discounts are available for multiple bookings of this course.
