Finally I'm offering another free psychology course! My other free course, 5 Amazing Psychology Experiments, has more than 2000 students and 50 positive reviews.

For ages, psychologists have wondered about the origins of thought and the structure of the mind. Using solid scientific methods and statistical analysis, we've started to get some answers.

This course serves as a quick introduction to the fundamentals of social psychology. In this introductory course, you'll learn about three major areas of psychology:

1. Accessibility and Priming: How is the mind organized and how can our brains trick us into perceiving the world in biased ways? We cover the notion of a schema and look at several studies on the power of priming.

2. Heuristics and Biases: What are the shortcuts that are brain takes? Whenever we make a decision or form a judgment, we like to think we're being careful and rational, but our minds want quick answers. Sometimes, these shortcuts can lead us astray.

3. Attribution: When we see other people, we often wonder why they do the things they do. Are they responsible for their choices or do we think that they're subject to environmental pressures? Attribution theories try to make sense of it.

In this series of lectures, you'll learn from a trained social psychologist and come to understand the essentials of social psychology. With quiz questions that reinforce your learning and examples that connect the research to your own life, this course is designed to help you quickly master this information. So enroll now and start learning about this fascinating field of social psychology!

**Please note that this is one part of the full introduction to social psychology course (Be a People Expert with Social Psychology) on Udemy. If you want to learn about psychology, and you're not ready to take the plunge for the full social psychology course, this is a great place to start!

You are invited to share your most powerful reframings - either as a comment to the group or by contacting Anette Prehn at anette@anetteprehn.com

This course is targeted for professionals, managers and executives which will show in the examples given and the questions asked. However, anyone is free to join so that as many as possible may harvest the benefits of reframing.

The views expressed in this course are the instructor's alone and do not reflect the official position of the U.S. Government, the Intelligence Community, or the Department of Defense.

Although anyone can claim the title of “intelligence analyst,” there are currently few commonly understood, standardized certifications available to confirm analytic skill and proficiency. Some may argue that each analytic assessment should be judged on its content and not on the certification or reputation of the author. However, an analytic product can often read well even though its analytic underpinnings are flawed. Also, it would be beneficial to have some objective measure of an analyst’s skill before selecting him for a task, rather than to discover afterwards that the analyst was unable to meet the task. Having addressed why certifications are needed and assuming certifications would provide a worthwhile benefit, the discussion then turns to how and in what areas should one attain certification. Through an analysis of the concept of analysis, the author proposes that three basic divisions should be created to train and certify one as either a descriptive, explanative, or predictive analyst. This course provides level 1 certification as a descriptive intelligence analyst.

If you've ever wanted an easy way to start learning about psychology, this is the course for you!

In this free course, you'll learn about 5 studies in psychology and see how their results reveal interesting things about human thought and behavior.

The studies in this course reveal…

  • how we can persuade someone to do what we want without even providing good reasons
  • why praising some kids for their intelligence vs. their hard word dramatically changed their test scores
  • why people who held a hot cup of coffee instead of an iced coffee automatically started thinking a stranger was especially generous and caring
  • …and more!

Carefully designed experiments tell us a great deal about the choices we make, the ways we behave, and why we think the way we do. I'm a social psychologist myself, and I thought about which studies most interested me early in my education and which studies are my current favorites. I even reached out to my colleagues to ask them what studies have most inspired them and are important for everyone to know about.

So enroll in this fun introductory course and start seeing how simple research in psychology tells us amazing things about human thought and behavior!

What is criminology?

Criminology is a branch of sociology, which traditionally examines human behavior, interaction, and organization. However, it also ties in research and concepts from other areas of study, such as philosophy, anthropology, biology, and psychology. Criminologists examine a broad range of topics related to crime. They are dedicated to studying not only the causes of crime but the social roots and impact as well. The end goal of criminology is to determine the root causes of criminal behavior and to develop effective and humane means for preventing it. These goals have produced several schools of thought within the discipline, each of which looks at different factors involved in deviant behaviour and comes to different conclusions about how best to approach the issues.

This is a question that is deceptively simple in appearance, but really quite tricky to answer with great certainty. It is tricky partly because, as we will see, criminology is a mixture of different disciplines, differing objects of study and some dispute over where, precisely, its boundaries actually lie and should lie. Importantly, however, the fact that we begin with this question assumes that you are new to this subject. Indeed, that is the underlying assumption.

This Course is designed as an introduction for students who are studying criminology. I have endeavoured not to make too  any assumptions about pre-existing knowledge of the subject and, wherever possible, I will hope to begin from basics and work progressively  toward more complex ideas or arguments.

Criminology is a strange beast. With origins in applied medico-legal science, psychiatry, a scientifically oriented psychology and in nineteenthcentury social reform movements, for much of the second half of the twentieth century British criminology was dominated by sociology or at least a predominantly sociological approach to criminology. Times are changing again, however, and a new strand of technical and highly policy-oriented ‘scientific’ criminology has been emerging more recently. During the course of this book you will meet all these variants and should learn how to assess their competing claims.

Are you interested in broadening your understanding of human behaviour? Psychology is the fascinating science of the human mind - one of the most complicated computers on Earth. It is the source of all thoughts, emotions, habits and behaviour.

Modern Applied psychology is a fascinating field of study that focuses on putting practical psychology-based research into practice. Applied psychology focuses on the application of real-world results over abstract theories and laboratory-based experiments.

Applied psychologists use human behaviour as a clue to the functioning of the mind. Although we cannot see the mind directly, everything we do, think, feel and say is determined by how the mind works. Foundation psychology (pure research) is what most people are familiar with; however, it's not until this research translates into something useful that psychology becomes relevant.

Studying Applied Psychology will let you identify how those around you think, what kind of feelings they experience, how they act and communicate, and what motivates them. We all use psychology every day when interacting with others, yet most people don't realize the psychology behind their choices and behaviours.

This unparalleled training course will introduce you to the seven disciplines of human psychology and deepen your understanding of how to support and generate positive change in peoples lives.

Since the German clinician Wilhelm Wundt opened the first experimental psychology lab in 1879, a considerable amount of understanding has been gained about the human mind and its consequential behaviour.

In short, if you are a human being who hopes to live in a meaningful, congruent and fruitful way - or help others to do the same, studying modern applied psychology will be an invaluable investment of your time.

Throughout this Diploma in Applied Psychology, you will learn how to:

  • Recognize the motivations behind all patterns of human behaviour.

  • Learn from your past to make wiser and more calculated decisions.

  • Understand and solve problems that directly affect people's lives.

  • Improve your thinking and self-regulate your emotional responses.

  • Make more thoughtful decisions that align with your priorities.

  • Separate aspects of personality from the core human identity.

  • Make precise forecasts about how people reason and behave.

  • Develop strong interpersonal relationships and connections.

  • Interact with other people in a positive and influential way.

  • Reason like a philosopher and interpret life events precisely.

  • And much, much more.

Students of Modern Applied Psychology tend to work in a range of distinguished careers; that include education, coaching and medicine, social enterprises, politics, and entrepreneurship. Even if you don't plan to work with people, psychology is still conducive to helping you understand how to cooperate with other people is a significantly useful way.

Psychology endeavours to positively influence people towards making beneficial and enduring changes in their lives. This curriculum is devised to support you in laying a firm foundation, on which you can scale your continuing studies of Applied Psychology (and it's associated range of supportive disciplines; i.e. coaching, CBT, counselling. etc.)

All schools of conventional psychology will be reviewed throughout this training; including pre-psychology (philosophy), early psychology, psychoanalysis (Fredism), developmental psychology, behavioural psychology, cognitive psychology, humanistic psychology and an emerging outlook regarding social psychology (and influence).

Joining this training also provides you access to a private discussion group, in which you can ask questions, discuss what you're learning and benefit from the expertise of over 65,000 other like-minded learners.

On finishing the final lecture, you will receive your Diploma in Modern Applied Psychology (Achology certified). You can also join the Academy of Modern Applied Psychology as a member.

The Academy of Modern Applied Psychology holds a globally esteemed presence as a respected training organization. It leads the way in teaching psychology that supports a new innovative way for psychology-based instruction to be presented and experienced.

"5 Stars! I chose this class because part of my Parenting Plan is to help my child address fears. I know in additional to being afraid of the dark and height, speaking in front of others is a fear my child has exhibited. I like the way the Instructors talked directly to the child on the videos and used examples children could relate. I like the flow of the class. I learned there is a “magic phrase.” I also learned to have my child to use the video that is on the PC, SmartPhone and Tablet as tool to help them with this skill. I could relate to several examples of what not to do. The Instructor teaches from the view of an experienced Media Personality. I would highly recommend this class." Ericka Bellamy Joseph

This course is specially developed for students who need the essential knowledge to prepare them for writing and defending their thesis/dissertation in an efficient and effective manner. I have created 17 lectures that cover all facets of thesis writing in one and a half hour!

Summary
I will start with the end in mind; how is your thesis evaluated? Based on this central question I explain my formula of success and take you by the hand from topic selection all the way up to successful thesis defence. I will explain step-by-step procedures to handle certain phases of your research project and provide many practical examples. On average, each lecture takes about five minutes.    

After completing this course, you will have the essential knowledge to successfully complete your research project, because you know the necessary ingredients. This knowledge is invaluable when you are writing an academic paper, MBA thesis, PhD thesis or dissertation.

Who should enroll?
- Intern students
- Bachelor students
- Master students
- MBA students
- PhD / disseration / doctoral students

What will you learn from this course?
In about one hour you will know how to work on your thesis from preparation to successful defence. You will learn:

  • how your research will be evaluated by your supervisor;

  • my formula of success;

  • what makes a good topic (with an practical example);

  • how your effort is divided per research phase;

  • how to monitor your progress;

  • a four-step procedure for writing an effective introduction;

  • a three-step procedure to conduct your literature review;

  • about common data collection methods;

  • how to clean your dataset;

  • how to handle setbacks during your research;

  • how to present your thesis results;

  • a three-step procedure for handling difficult questions during thesis defence.

I’m fully convinced of the benefits, but I don’t see why I should learn all this from you.
True, let me explain by giving you an overview of my experience:
- Parttime PhD Candidate (7 years - present). I read the science, you'll get the knowledge! What more do you want? 
- Chief Information Security Officer (present). Managing Security, Privacy and Quality professionals. Responsible for implementing and maintaining a well balanced organisational risk posture;

Four testimonials

#1

"I highly recommend Soerin as your thesis coach based on my positive experience with him over the past months. Soerin guided me through the different research phases, from the literature review until the conclusion and recommendations. By asking probing questions instead of immediately giving the answers to my questions, Soerin not only contributed to a thesis that I’m proud of, but also made me a better researcher. The recommendations that Soerin gave during his review of my thesis drafts were helpful and often formed the basis of new insights. When I hit a block while working on a factor analysis, Soerin helped me via a Skype session during which he looked at my SPSS and SmartPLS output live. Because of his enthusiasm, positive attitude and “can do” mentality, my interactions with Soerin were always pleasant and motivating.

 

Soerin, many thanks for your support!"

"I would definitely recommend Soerin as thesis advisor. Not only does Soerin help with the students plan for research, he also helps to improve the plan by making recommendations for advanced research (and additional analyses). Soerin is a very fine coach and works very structured, which triggers the students to be passioned. Soerin is easily accessible and responsive to questions and / or ambiguities. Soerin is certainly willing to help the students when problems occur. Soerin has a lot of knowledge, not only in the content but also in the structure and design of the study. He may also communicate this knowledge in a proper way, so that things are understandable for others. Soerin reviewed the thesis very detailed, by making comments in Word. The review notes will be clear and transparent. Soerin is very keen on the support of your written pieces with appropriate citations. He also helps to make your writing style 'journal proof'. He gives examples (references to pieces from other papers) and make suggestions to improve your writing style. Soerin motivates others to “get the best out of yourself”. Upon reviewing my thesis also noticed me that Soerin always reviewed with the why question. With this, he triggers another to think even more about the background of the texts are written. I’am very positive about the contact times I had with Soerin, he shares his information with great passion, he is patient and takes his time to help you with questions or ambiguities. I don’t have any improvement points for Soerin as thesis advisor. Again, I would recommend Soerin to anyone!"

"My masterthesis (in Health Law) was recently reviewed by Soerin. While this thesis was outside his field, he provided me valuable feedback on the most crucial parts of my thesis, which were the main relevance between the research question and subquestions, applied thesis methodology and theoretical structure in order to achieve consistency between title, problem, purpose and research questions. I’ve also asked him to review my Final Conclusion & Recommendations. While his profession is in accountancy, his tips and key notes were very helpful and motivated me to finetune my thesis in some certain aspects such as re-production of my research findings and used theoretical literature. I think it is a real added value to let your thesis review by a professional teacher, who reviews dozens of master thesis a week. At the end I would really recommend anyone to let it reviewed by Soerin, which will motivate you to take the extra mile to finish your thesis on time"

"I hereby would like to recommend Soerin as thesis supervisor / mentor in writing.

Not for your ego but as a huge benefit for future students.

The reason why I would recommend him is because I believe he sees himself failing when a student fails. The harmony in the interest of both him and the students makes the delivered service as a ‘to be the standard of excellence’ one.

 

When discussing actualities or supporting literature Soerin is spot on! He knows what you are talking about which gives the thesis writer a lot of comfort every check.

The support by reviewing the thesis on a detailed way is very valuable. His review is of a high quality which is helpful to improve a structured writing style.

 

The interaction between Soerin and the students is good. He is a go-to-person (approachable). Besides that, he is very flexible in reviewing a thesis or answering question by e-mail or a text message.

 

The knowledge he has about collecting data and analysing the data is of an excessive high level. Multiple programs to analyse but also multiple ways to analyse. To connect the dots for a student in times they need it the most is a comfortable action. For example: In my experience I was stuck in an analysis and he did not tell me the answer, but showed me a door which made me think of how to deal with a hurdle.

 

Improvement can be accomplished on the areas of stopping a student when a student is only focussed on deadlines and less on quality of previous handed in parts of the thesis. Second to It, an added value can be created by paying attention on used terminology and translations from English literature.

 

I want to thank Soerin by writing this letter. I’m grateful for what he has done. He has partly contributed for me to be able to use the master-title with proud."

Criminal Investigation in the New Millennium

The Present, the Past, and the Future: A Community Policing Approach

Created by Robert T. Meesig - LtCol, USAF (retired), Ph.D.

"]

Students: 9261, Price: Free

Students: 9261, Price:  Free

This FREE course addresses the following issues:

- How good are we at solving crime in the US? (Hint – not so good~~)

- Who are the detectives and what do they do?

- How did we get into this situation, and why?

- What can we expect in the future?

- And just how much can forensics and technology be expected help investigations?

To find answers to these and other questions, we explore the criminal investigation process of the present, the past, and the future.

We present an overview of the subject in a listener-friendly and informative way. It is scripted to be understood by the casual observer, as well as the experienced investigator and the aspiring academic.

This course is rooted in the research literature and is amply referenced and well-cited. It provides some of the most comprehensive and current information available on the process.

It does NOT teach how to be an investigator. Instead, it teaches ABOUT the investigation process itself.

The course consists of about 58 lectures ranging from five to 20 minutes in length (about 12 hours total). The lectures are divided into six sections addressing the following:

(1) Where are We?
(2) Who are the Detectives and What Do They Do?
(3) How Did We Get Here?
(4) Where are We Going?
(5) Where Do We Want to Go?
(6) The Year “2084.”

To guide us through the sections, students will learn to use a HANDY FRAMEWORK to do the following:

1. IDENTIFY a crime problem (in terms of the phases of a crime).

2. DESCRIBE the availability of crime information and sources in each crime phase (in terms of space and time).

3. UNDERSTAND how the various detective models of the past have investigated crime (to see their strengths and weaknesses).

4. MANIPULATE what we learned to project how developments in forensics and technology, and a new detective model, can address the crime problems of the future.

**UPDATE: I just added 3 NEW BONUS VIDEOS to expand on and discuss some of the core experiments.

If you've ever wanted a quick and easy way to know more about people and psychology, this is the course for you! More than 11,000 people have enrolled in my online psychology courses to learn more about the human mind and social behavior. You can be one of them!

Although you could read dense textbooks on psychological research, this simple and engaging course will give you quick access to some of the most interesting and unique studies in psychology.

When you finish this course, you'll have a new appreciation for human behavior, persuasion, and influence, and you'll quickly be able to impress your friends and family with your surprising knowledge of human psychology. Not only that, but you'll know exactly what science behind those findings was!

The studies in this course reveal…

  • how we can persuade someone to do what we want without even providing good persuasive reasons
  • why people started to walk more slowly after solving a few word puzzles
  • why men were more attracted to a woman when they stood on a terrifying bridge
  • why praising some kids for their intelligence vs. their hard work dramatically changed their test scores
  • why people who held a hot cup of coffee instead of an iced coffee automatically started thinking a stranger was especially generous and caring
  • …and much more!

Carefully designed experiments tell us a great deal about the choices we make, the ways we behave, and why we think the way we do. Throughout this course, you'll learn about a bunch of these experiments and see exactly what they say about yourself and the people you meet every day.

I'm a social psychologist myself, and I thought about which studies most interested me early in my education and which studies are my current favorites. I even reached out to my colleagues to ask them what studies have most inspired them and are important for everyone to know about.

This could be the beginning of your new-found interest in psychology. After taking my classes, many of my students have begun pursuing psychology themselves! But even if you just want an easy introduction to psychology, you'll want to check out these fascinating studies now.

So enroll in this fun introductory course and start seeing how simple research in psychology tells us amazing things about human thought and behavior!

Course Two - Egg Timer Economics

‘Egg timer economics’ is a series of very short lectures that illustrate key areas of the advanced Economics course. (Each lecture is about 3.5 minutes, hence the title 'Egg-timer Economics!) The course introduces key areas of micro and macroeconomics in a very straightforward way. There are also two sections on current affairs to encourage those attending the course to use news items to learn about Economics.

Each lecture (except Current Affairs) is accompanied by data response questions and a quiz.

Course Fifteen

April Fools economics

Created specifically for April 1st we look at Economic hoaxes.

Course Sixteen

End of Course Homework: Multiple choice tests

Many many extra lectures and times tests on multiple choice – micro and macro

What terminology would you expect the audience to use to find your course?

The terminology is common business language – as found in newspapers. Therefore terms such as ‘fiscal policy’ and ‘monetary policy’ are used. Students are encouraged to use the Q/A option to raise points and questions. These questions will very quickly be responded to. Remember too that there is an ‘Economics English’ course included.

What kind of materials are included?

200+ short lectures and some documents that a) test whether the student had understood/remembered the key elements of the lecture and b) questions encouraging to do their own research. In that way the course continues beyond the video.

How long will the course take to complete?

Assuming the student has 2 hours a day , the course could easily be covered in ten weeks. However, one of the purposes of the course is to enthuse the student and the questions asked may encourage the student to spend hours reading newspaper articles. There are also 24 workbooks that, if filled in, will easily take another 120 hours. (This is a very intensive course!)

How is the course structured?

The lectures follow the standard Advanced Economic syllabus. So, video, then an extension document. Then the next video. There are many, many revision questions.

Why take this course?

So many reasons!

1. To quickly gain an understanding of micro and macro economics

2. To be able to assess and evaluate America's economic policies

3. To be able to assess and evaluate the UK's 'alternative' economic policies

4. In the final extended section you can thoroughly test yourself and really see if you understand the economics behind current articles. These lectures are boosted by repeats of earlier lectures. Thus: R-E-V-I-S-I-O-N

For ages, psychologists have been studying the self. Anytime we think about who we are, we engage in a very special thought process. After all, who knows us better than ourselves?

This course serves as a quick introduction to the psychology of the self. You'll learn four major components about this fascinating field of study:

  1. The Self-Concept: How do we come to understand who we are, what our traits are, what our skills are, etc.? This section looks at what it means to have a "self-concept" and how it develops.
  2. Self-Esteem: We've all heard of self-esteem, but psychologists spend countless hours understanding what it is, including components of self-esteem that you've never considered before.
  3. Self-Motives: Let's face it: we can be defensive. If someone says something negative about us, we feel compelled to refute it. This section looks at all the ways people are motivated to think about themselves in particular ways and what they do to ensure they maintain a particular self-concept.

In this series of lectures, you'll learn from a trained social psychologist and come to understand the essentials of the psychology of self. With quiz questions that reinforce your learning and examples that connect the research to your own life, this course is designed to help you quickly master this information. So enroll now and start learning about this fascinating field of social psychology!

**Please note that this is one part of the full "Learn Social Psychology" course. If you want to learn about the psychology of the self, and you're not ready to take the plunge for the full social psychology course, this is a great place to start!

Course Description: 

Welcome to this course on Basics of Microeconomics : Behavior of Buyers and Sellers & Product Pricing

This course is divided into 2 parts:

1) Understanding the Behavior of Buyers and Sellers
This part is covered in Section 1 (Demand), Section 2 (Supply) and Section 3 (Supply and Demand Together)

In this part, I will take you through the heart of Economics - Demand and Supply Mechanism (Determined by Buyers and Sellers ) and we will discuss the following topics :

What is Demand?
Do you demand less when the price of a commodity rises.? Yes..? Think again..!
Is your Demand only a function of price?
What is supply?
What affects supply of a good in the market?
We, as buyers, want to pay as low a price as possible; sellers, on the other hand, want to charge as high a price as possible, seems like there  are opposite interests here, then who gets to decide the price?
How does this price mechanism function?

2) Product Pricing Decisions - Price Elasticity of Demand and Supply
This part is covered in Section 4 (Elasticity of Demand) and Section 5 (Elasticity of Supply).

In this part, you will understand how to analyse demand and supply with greater precision and the product pricing mechanism.
We will go through the following topics:

What is Price Elasticity of Demand? 
How much product pricing power do you have?
How to calculate Elasticity? 
What is Price Elasticity of Supply? 
What affects Price Elasticity of Supply? 
  
This course is not only for the students of Economics but for anyone who has an interest in understanding these powerful mechanisms. 

It is a beginner level course and all the topics and concepts start from scratch, so even if you are not familiar with Economics, you may take this as your first step to understand this powerful subject.   

All that said, if you would like to discuss something while you are learning, please feel free to start a discussion or PM me.

Level 2 Intelligence Analyst Certification

The views expressed in this course are the instructor's alone and do not reflect the official position of the U.S. Government, the Intelligence Community, or the Department of Defense.

This course builds on the Level 1 Intelligence Analyst Certification course for descriptive analysis.  One cannot explain why events occurred, if one does not first know what events occurred. Explanative intelligence interprets current events.  It seeks to explain an adversary’s behavior, answer the question “why,” and establish causal relationships.  Thus, students in this course should hold a Level 1 certification and be experienced descriptive intelligence analysts.  Likewise, as the graduates of the Level 2 course gain experience and expertise they become ready for the Level 3 course and are ready to produce predictive intelligence analysis.
