PSYCHOLOGY (328)

1. RATIONALE

Psychology is relevant to all walks of life. Everyone learns some psychology, if not in school, through one’s own experience and uses it without realizing it consciously. Prominent applications in psychology include areas of human development and adjustment, development of skills, communication, education, social change, stress etc. As mentioned earlier, psychology extends to all areas of human existence.

 

While imparting knowledge of the above to a student of Senior Secondary, it is our endeavor to acquaint him/her with his/her own life concerns and bring home on how psychology has bearing in such issues. It will also be important that while discussing modern psychological thought and research, the indigenous ideas are integrated into a collective perspective.

2.  OBJECTIVES

 

•        To make students understand the major areas of life concern (e.g. development, education., work, hearth, society etc.)

•        To make students understand the relationship between the life concern and psychological perspective.

•        To make student apply the knowledge of psychology in the solution of problems related to individual life concerns.
