I am excited we will be spending the next several weeks together. It is my goal to help you experience meaningful learning, which challenges your current assumptions and expectations. During our sessions we will be utilizing critical analysis skills, applying them to the development of psychology. It is my desire that after completing this course your knowledge base will be broadened; also, that you will intake and process information differently. As a group we will be evaluating the subject of psychology as a discipline and in relation to the individual. During this course you will be introduced to new principles, people, and points of view. And enhance your thinking ability. Get excited!—JM Instructor Bio
