Course Description

Psychologists help us to understand who we are and how we think, feel, act and change through scientific study of the human mind and its functions, and how they influence behaviour. Psychological research seeks to identify mechanisms that explain behaviour in various contexts. Clinical psychologists work directly with clients to help them improve their wellbeing and psychological health using evidence-based psychological treatments. Their clients include children, adults, couples, families and organisations, and they can work in a wide range of settings, from private practices to the hospital system.
