Psychology: Exploring the Psychologies of Freud, Jung and Others

Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and those that followed them have, in their very different ways, changed the way we think about ourselves, morality, life and love. This course will also look at some of the most influential ideas from Alfred Adler, Eric Erickson, Wilhelm Reich, Viktor Frankl and Erich Fromm. All have influenced our view of human nature, even if we don鈥檛 realise it. Expect informed presentations; lively discussions and online; lots of background materials on Canvas, controversy, lively discussion, some outrageous ideas and a touch of humour. This is an introductory course, and no previous experience of Psychology is needed.

Psychology: Introduction to Animal Training with Trust

An introduction to an alternative approach to dog training which focuses on the human-dog relationship, the level of trust therein, good communication 台湾swag and the quality of the bond created. Human- canine training relationships have traditionally focused on such things as dominance hierarchies, rewards and punishments, species separation, food based rewards and comparison to wolf pack behaviours. In more recent years these approaches have been replaced by more innovative and evidence based approaches which have good observational 台湾swag, observance of family values, age- appropriate training, maturation and relationship quality at their core.
