Ways to Approach Psychology: Explaining Depression and Criminal Behaviour

Psychology Taster Lecture

Speaker: Dr Bianca Serwinski, Programme Director and Assistant Professor in Psychology

Date: Tuesday 9th November 2021, 4:30-5:30pm (GMT)

The study of psychology at NCH explores fundamental principles, concepts, and issues in the major areas of contemporary scientific psychology. 

In this taster lecture, we will explore the different approaches that exist in psychology to explain certain phenomena, including behaviour in society. These include identifying the differences in female and male behaviour, such as empathy and giving directions, but also, for example, how do we develop a fear of snakes, without ever having seen one in real life?

After obtaining an overview of the approaches, these will be applied to depression and criminal behaviour as examples.

This taster will also include an introductory overview of studying at NCH, and there will be ample time for Q&A with Faculty and Student Ambassadors.

Here’s what previous participants have said about our Psychology Taster Lectures:
