therapeutic approaches and uses detailed case studies of
different psychological disorders.

One of the ways by which the relationship among
cognition, belief and behaviour may be studied is through
the literature on the psychology of religion and that is the
approach that will be adopted in this unit. Over recent
years there has been a remarkable resurgence of interest
in the psychology of religion. In this course we will focus
attention on the recent and current literature published in
texts and journals. Students who would like to explore the
history of the psychology of religion in greater depth than
will be covered in the lectures may choose to write the
major essay on the topic. We will begin the lectures by Fall 2001
examining the sorts of questions and issues that may
properly be addressed by social scientists, and those that
fall outside their domain. For example, the validity of
religious beliefs is not a question that social scientists, as
such, are competent to address, but the development of
religious beliefs, and the effects of religious beliefs and
religious experience on attitudes and behaviour, are
among the sorts of issues that psychologists are equipped
to address. The course outline indicates the order
considered most appropriate to proceed with our
This unit covers fundamentals in social psychology
including the ways in which individuals and groups
operate within a social world. The unit focuses on the         Spring 2001
study of social cognition, attribution theory,
communication and social interaction.
This unit explores the family unit as the basic social unit
within which the individual develops and is socialised. In
particular, the unit focuses on the Australian family and
the changes which have occurred in recent decades. The
unit will explore the family life cycle and structures and the
functions that families perform in assisting the
development of their members. Topics such as
                                                               Fall 2003
attachment theory, gender identity, family communication
patterns, family transitions, domestic violence and the
impact of alcohol are examined. The relationship of the
family unit to the broader social context will be explored
with particular focus on the legal and industrial context.
Students are encouraged to look at their own experiences
of family life in the ongoing process of socialisation and
personal growth.

The unit is an eclectic combining of the theoretical and the
practical in examining the roles of individuals as members
of organizations. Through lectures, workshops, case
studies and a workplace-oriented assignment, students
will be challenged to develop new paradigms of thinking
about the psychology of the individual in the workplace.
The Psychology of Work is a blend of organisational
behaviour, sociology, organisational theory, management,
leadership, human resource issues and psychology. It
examines contemporary management thinking in the
                                                             Spring 2004
context of cause-and-effect on individuals and
subsequent performance and encourages dialectic about
organizations as rational decision making bodies. Where
appropriate, guest speakers will be invited to talk about
current workplace and people issues that they experience
as managers and leaders. The teaching approach is one
of active learning and students are required to participate
fully in the blend of workshops and lectures throughout
the unit. I believe that learning should also be a pleasant
experience and a sense of humour is most welcome if not
mandatory. I look forward to working with you.
This unit provides a broad framework for understanding
the area of abnormal psychology. The unit deals with
approaches to understanding the nature of abnormality,
how models are constructed to explain abnormality as
well as alternative paradigms and thinking in the area.      Spring 2003
Illustrations are drawn from a wide range of
psychopathology including anxiety, depression,
developmental disorders, schizophrenia and organic brain

 Psychoanalysis has become an unavoidable part of
modern knowledge, with far-reaching effects on the
thinking, behavior, literature, morals and aspirations of our
era. Not only in the restricted sphere of mental health, but
also in medicine and education, and extending into            Fall 2003
everyday human relations, the consequences of Freud's
thought have been revolutionary. This course is an
introduction to the psychoanalytic way of understanding
the human person and the worlds of feelings and thought.
                                                            Fall 2003

This course will provide an introduction to the philosophy
of mind and the philosophy of psychology. The main
topics will include the concept of mind, and the relation of
the mental and the physical; the problem of

This unit prepares pre-service teachers with the
knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to
manage students who experience behavioural and
learning difficulties. It covers child and adolescent
development, child and adolescent behaviour, and             Fall 2003
behaviour analysis and management. The unit also
examines how children learn, their learning difficulties and
the impact of intellectual and physical disabilities on the
student and the teacher in the school setting.


(PS 341)Studies in the methodologies and principles of
individual, interpersonal and collective social behaviors as
                                                             Fall 2003
well as the importance of social interaction in the
construction of the personality, in the processes of social
influence and change, in small and large group settings.

Introduces the study of psychology, the study of the             PS 101
human mind, in some of its many facets: epistemological
issues, the brain, perception, learning, language,
intelligence, motivation, development, personality,
emotion, social influences, pathology and therapy and
prevention. These will be seen from the scientific and
scholarly point of view, but with emphasis on their
relevance for everyday life. An important focus of the
course will be the importance of theories and how they
influence the gathering of data as well as the difficulty of
objectivity when the object of study is also its primary tool:
the human mind. One of the goals of the course will also
be to prepare the student to read psychological literature
with a critical eye, keeping in mind the difficulties involved
in attempting to study human subjectivity in an objective

Follows the development of the child through adolescence         PS 221
with emphasis on the complexity and continuity of
psychological development The course will emphasize
the interaction and interdependence of the various
systems: biological, genetic and environmental, as well
as the interaction and interdependence of cognitive and
social factors in the various stages of development from
the prenatal period through adolescence. Particular
attention will be placed on attachment theory, the
development of the self and possible pathological
outcomes of faulty development. Prerequisite: PS 101.

Issues related to psychopathology will be explored with an       PS 254
emphasis on methodological problems and the causes of
psychopathological conditions. The classification system
of DSM-IV, which has become standard in North America
and in many other parts of the world, will be examined
critically, and other more theoretically coherent nosologies
will be studied. Diagnostic categories will be examined
from the point of view of three major theoretical
approaches: psychodynamic, biological and cognitive.
Through required extra readings (in photocopies) and a
research paper the student will become familiar with
contemporary work in the field and will learn to read
professional articles in a critical way. Emphasis in the
course will be on the understanding and not simply
description of psychopathological states and their multiple
complex determinants, and that every psychological
disorder has its specific content for the person suffering
from it. Prerequisite: PS 101.
 This course will examine the structure and function of                    PS 307
mental processes, which account for human behavior.
Topics include attention, perception, memory, problem
solving, decision making, cognitive development,
language, and human intelligence. Individual, situational,
gender and cultural differences in cognition will also be
explored. An individual research project or research
paper is required. Prerequisite: PS 101.
The course focuses on the relationship between the                         PS 334
individual and society by examining how people form and
sustain their attitudes, beliefs and values. Students are
introduced to current research findings in areas such as
leadership and group dynamics, cults, prejudice and
racism, aggression, altruism, and love and attraction. A
group research project is required. Prerequisite: PS 101.

An in-depth treatment of a current area of special concern                 PS 399
