CAO CODE: DC208 Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivations underlying such behaviour. While psychologists differ in their interests within the field of psychology and in the type of work they do, all psychologists approach the study of psychology through scientific research. Psychologists are concerned with practical problems such as: ‚Ä¢ How can we ease the effects of parental divorce on children? ‚Ä¢ How can we make sure that eyewitness accounts in court are reliable? ‚Ä¢ How should people act on a date – what do others tend to find attractive? ‚Ä¢ How can we help people overcome depression, stress or phobias? ‚Ä¢ How do footballers keep their anger in check on the pitch? ‚Ä¢ What makes a good manager? ‚Ä¢ How can teachers ensure students are really learning? If you think these research questions are interesting, then you may be interested in studying psychology.
