Summary... header image

Psychology spans virtually all aspects of human life and allows us seek answers to questions such as:

  • What effects do different drugs have on behaviour?
  • How do children develop a sense of self and relationships with others?
  • What effect does our mood have on our ability to remember information?
  • How can we understand mental disorders and help people cope with their illnesses?
  • When and why do people and animals help others in need?
  • What are the roots of prejudice and discrimination and what can be done to resolve intergroup conflict?

By defining and investigating these and other questions, psychologists aim to provide practical solutions to the many personal and social challenges that people face in their everyday live
