Psychology

AIMS, OBJECTIVES & SKILLS:

Psychology is the study of mental processes and behaviour. It is a complex subject which draws on concepts,

methods and understandings from a number of different disciplines. The study of behaviour and mental processes

requires a multidisciplinary approach and the use of a variety of research techniques whilst recognising that

behaviour is not a static phenomenon, it is adaptive, and as the world, societies and challenges facing societies

change, so does behaviour.
