Psychology 110 C, Fall Semester 2009 Introduction to Psychology Flipse 536, MWF, 10:10-11:00 Instructor: Dr. Charles Carver Teaching Asst: Catherine D’Avanzato Office: Flipse 457 Phone: 8-2817 Office: Flipse 432 Office Hours: MWF 1:30-2:30, and by appointment Hrs: R 11:00-2:00, and by appointment E-mail: [email protected] E-mail: [email protected] Text: D. Coon & J. O. Mitterer, Psychology: A Journey , 3rd Ed. Thomson-Wadsworth, 2008 COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is an introduction to a broad range of topics that make up today’s discipline of psychology. My version of the course emphasizes areas of psychology that deal with the human being as a “whole person,” though we will also spend time on specific subsystems within the person (the nervous system, perception, cognition, motivation, and so on). My focus will be on how people grow and change; how everyone is unique yet also is the same as everyone else; how people experience life’s stresses; how psychological problems sometimes develop; and some ways in which people are affected by each other. These topics form the areas of Developmental, Personality, Health, Abnormal, and Social Psychology. These are the main focus of the course, though other topics are also included. My first goal for the course is to make you more thoughtful “consumers of psychological information.” For the rest of your life, you’ll encounter information pertaining to psychology in newspapers, magazine articles, and on TV and radio. After you finish this course, you will be better equipped to understand and interpret this information. There are at least 3 ways the course will help you do this.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
