Psychology at St George's Catholic School

Course description

Psychology is the ‘scientific study of the mind and subsequent behaviour’. Students learn about important processes such as memory, and can evaluate the implications of issues such as eyewitness testimony.

Students appreciate how early childhood experiences shape and influence individuals throughout their life, through studying topics such as aggression, eating disorders and gender. Other topics explore the management of stress and metal health issues such as depression and schizophrenia.

In addition to a vast subject content students also learn to evaluate research, theories and data so that they are able to make informed comments regarding the effectiveness of a study or a type of treatment.
