Summary

In this class we will look at the psychology of relationships.

The first class will focus on friendships and we will discuss potential benefits and drawbacks of friendships, and the factors athat affect who we become friends with.

The second class will focus on romantic relationships. Topics will include: the most desired traits in a partner, how to have a healthy relationship, and how to get over an ex.

The focus of the final class will be parent-child relationships. We'll look at attachment theory, compare different parenting strategies and take a closer look at tiger parenting.

Format

This is a discussion based class. Each student will be assigned an article before class that they should summarise for the class. After the introduction we will discuss the article's content together.

What you can learn from this class

Students will learn the factors that make friendship more likely, what traits men and women desire in their partners, some general relationship advice from renowned psychologists, what parenting styles have been shown to be the most effective. As with many topics in psychology we will also learn that there are no very clear answers when it comes to human relationships, but the class content should spark lively debate about these topics and let students know what psychological research has to say about these questions.

My experience for the class

I have a degree in psychology and have been teaching English for over five years.

Bryan老師在這段課程中,每次都會提供不同的文章,讓學員們課前研讀,在課堂上會請學生針對文章內容進行摘要簡報,並針對文末提出的問題進行全體討論。對關係心理學有興趣的學員可以從中學到許多相關詞彙與用語。

主題化的練習口說,比較不會遇到不知道要說什麼的尷尬情況! 老師也會適時提出引導!

學到很多心理學理論,很實際又不會太學術!
