Psychological Approaches

Course Duration:  16 hours - 3 hours

Psychology aims to explain mental phenomena.

There are six main approaches when it comes to analysing human behaviour. These will all be explored during the course.

  • The psychodynamic approach has two key features: It divides the mind into the conscious, unconscious and preconscious. It states that the personality is made up of three components - the id, ego and superego.

  • The physiological approach investigates brain functions in healthy and impaired individuals, studying brain chemistry and psychology. The common assumption is that biology underlines behaviour.

  • The behaviourist theory rejects the investigation of internal mental processes.

  • The humanist approach rejects determinism and emphasises free will.

  • The cognitive theory focuses on active mental processes.

  • The social approach believes that we construct our world view through social interactions.
