Psychology from a Christian Perspective

This class will introduce Christian high school students to the study of the human mind and will prepares them for the worldview challenges introduced in college and embedded in modern psychology's theories and schools-of-thought. Students will understand how the Christian worldview contrasts with the psycho-dynamic, behavioristic, humanistic, and evolutionary perspectives. The class will cover the history of psychology, as well as current theories on motivation, emotion, development, memory, sensation, abnormal psychology, social psychology, treatment, and more.
