Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of 6 psychological theories: 
Week 1: behaviorist, psychodynamic, 
Week 2:  cognitive, biological,
Week 3:  cognitive behavioral, humanistic
Week 4: comparison of all theories and open discussion
The student will learn about the founder of each theory, what lead to the theory and how it may or may not be a practical approach used currently. 
I have a MS in Psychology and have practiced for the last 15 years. I have experience in private practice, teaching and management. My love of the field and teaching style which makes it relevant to students make this a fun and unforgettable class!
The student will be asked to research the theory covered each week to gain additional information which they can share at the beginning of the following class. This is voluntary homework and assigned to increase student interaction. 
A one-page handout summarizing the theories will be provided at the first session.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
A quiz will be offered at the conclusion of classes. This quiz is optional, should a parent desire a grade, please let the teacher know in advance. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
