This course will introduce the Recreation Leadership student to some basic principles of human behaviour and through discussions and case studies, relate these principles to their own experiences, thereby giving the student a better understanding of their own behaviour and of others.
Students who successfully complete this course will be familiar with many of the major theorists and schools of thought in psychology. They will develop critical thinking skills and gain a general understanding of the many factors that influence human behaviour.
