PSYC 389 - Seminar Special Topic: Tools for Transformation

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
What’s the science behind self-help? What processes keep us mired in habit, and what processes help us transform? And why do we need so many guides? In this seminar we explore methods of awareness and self-transformation, particularly examining theory and research evidence of effectiveness. Additionally, we sample a variety of evidence-based practices, in class and course projects. Students engage in a project of personal value, and interview others about methods that work for them. We consider principles of motivation, development, neuropsychology, creativity, cognition, relationship, individual differences, and topics of specific interest to enrolled students. Carolyn Palmer.

Prerequisite(s): At least two 200-level Psychological Science courses, and a research methods course (may be concurrent).

One 2-hour period.
