Much of what EL Education knows about the mindsets of adults and students was learned through more than 20 years of experience and, more recently, from Carol Dweck's book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. This is an excellent resource. You will see where we have drawn from this resource and others throughout our materials.

Peer-supported self-management for people discharged from a mental health crisis team: a randomised controlled trial
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

High resource expenditure on acute care is a challenge for mental health services aiming to focus on supporting recovery, and relapse after an acute crisis episode is common. Some evidence supports self-management interventions to prevent such relapses, but their effect on readmissions to acute care following a crisis is untested.

Research Methods in Psychology Ancillary Set

The purpose of this project was to create a set of ancillary materials for the open textbook Research Methods in Psychology, a textbook intended to be used for psychology research methods courses. At the start of this grant, the textbook was available through the University of Minnesota’s Open Textbook Library (open.lib.umn.edu/psychologyresearchmethods/) and could be found in most open material repositories. Since this grant was proposed, however, a more recent version of the text has been released by Price, Jhangiani, Chiang, Leighton, and Cuttler (https://opentext.wsu.edu/carriecuttler/). The resources developed for this grant can be used for the new edition of the text, although they were written for the earlier version.

Welcome to this module titled Learning Psychology. In this module our focus will be on human learning. Human learning is not an entirely new topic to you since it was discussed at introductory level in the General Psychology unit and also in Developmental Psychology. Learning is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of psychology for the simple reason that most, if not all, human behaviour is either learned or is influenced by learning. A basic understanding of the behaviour of human beings therefore calls for basic knowledge of the basic psychological principles, concepts and approaches in classroom teaching and learning. The other factors that influence learning are inheritance, but this is beyond the scope of this module.

This module should be studied alongside the following other modules: Educational Psychology, General Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Learning Psychology, Guidance and Counseling and Educational Testing and Evaluation. The module is an introductory course for teacher education trainees. It is advisable before studying this module for the student to acquaint himself or herself with principles in general psychology because many concepts in the area of special needs education are based on psychological principles. Therefore, the student needs to understand the contribution of psychology to the theory and practice of education, to be conversant with self-assessment procedures, to have good knowledge in his or her subjects and to know about the personality of learners. It is also important to know about learners’ individual differences, moral, social, and cognitive development, theories of learning, guidance and counseling and educational testing and evaluation.

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is the study of the principles and methods with which one builds effective interfaces for users. HCI is a field of study that evolves to changes in the technological landscape. During the past decade, the emergence of personal mobile devices, agent-based technologies, and pervasive and ubiquitous computing is motivated by the technique of human computer interaction which has profoundly changed the way people use technology for work and leisure. This course introduces the student to the theory and practice of developing user interfaces. Practical hands-on will be balanced by discussion of relevant literature of computer science e.g. graphics, user interface design, multimedia and visual design of HCI, cognitive psychology, and scientific information design.

He and other psychiatrists elaborate on the ways in which drugs alter the chemistry of the brain. Drugs that are effective seem to reduce the levels of dopamine in the brain — to provide amelioration and stabilization, not a cure.Watch:The World of Abnormal Psychology - Produced by Alvin H. Perlmutter, Inc., and Toby Levine Communications. 1992, all descriptions are from the series website.The World of Abnormal Psychology: Psychotherapies (Program 12)This program allows viewers to "sit-in" on five distinctly different kinds of psychotherapy: psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, Gestalt, couples, and group. Theory and practice are intertwined as these patients progress through therapy, sometimes trying alternative models for the same problem. Learning objectives:1.      Distinguish between psychotherapy and biomedical therapy.2.      Explain the main goal and main components of psychoanalysis (Freud’s psychotherapy which includes “free association” and “dream analysis” techniques); behavior therapy which includes “exposure” technique, “aversive conditioning”, “counter-conditioning” and “token economy” technique); cognitive therapy (originated by Beck); cognitive-behavioral therapy (which incorporates both cognitive and behavioral techniques); and biomedical therapies (which include psychotropic medications and ECT: electroconvulsive therapy).3.      Distinguish between these “modalities” (formats) of psychotherapy: play therapy, individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy.
