Psychology Explorations helps students better understand themselves and others
By Paula Piva
The Psychology Explorations Expeditions course allows students to learn about psychology while also learning about themselves. By learning about the brain and its different processes, as well as exploring different personality traits, disorders and therapies, students gain insight on their interactions with others.
For Celebration of Learning, a night where students showcase the culmination of their Expeditions projects to parents and members of the school community, Psychology Explorations students chose a psychological disorder to study and found a test and therapy to diagnose and treat the disorder.
When asked about what he hopes students take from this course, Psychology Explorations Expeditions teacher Vaughan Wilkin said: “I think getting who you are and why you are that way, and feeling more comfortable with it, would be a great starting spot.”
