1. Transactional Analysis:Gain Insightful Information About This Therapy Method

The Transactional Analysis Course is packed with information about this therapy method - how it can be used in both day-to-day life and psychoanalytic practice, either to improve your own life or to help others improve theirs. Learn what Transactional Analysis is, what its core concepts are and how to use it for the analysis of behaviour, therapy, and self-help.

With various sources defining Transactional Analysis (TA) differently to each other, the course begins by looking at what Transactional Analysis actually is, when and where it’s used and by whom. You’ll be introduced to the history of the practice and its creator, Eric Berne.

With introductions made, the course continues by explaining the core principles and concepts of Transactional Analysis, such as ego states, transactions, games, scripts and life positions, and how these effect our relationships. With these concepts in mind, you’ll look at how to use Transactional Analysis as a diagnostic tool in a therapy setting and the methods used to work out the underlying issues that may be causing a person’s problems.

Of these concepts, ‘games’ is particularly important, so much so that Eric Berne wrote a book on the matter. The Transactional Analysis Course provides several examples of each game type, to provide clarity on the subject. You may well find yourself recognising many of these being played out in your own life.

You’ll learn how to put these concepts to work – using Transactional Analysis in a clinical setting. You’ll be guided through how to analyse transactions, games, scripts, and relationships and how to use the TA method in therapy, to help people to alter their perspectives and change their lives.

The course looks at different types of patients and their therapeutic goals, and how to use TA in group therapy. It explores the use of Transactional Analysis as a unique approach to marriage therapy and relationship, explaining how it considers the structure of marriage and how to make the individuals in relationships happier and healthier.

Transactional Analysis is an incredible tool to use in therapy but it is just as powerful for self-help. The Transactional Analysis Course looks at how the practice can be used in your own life, to highlight and understand issues and work on your personal development, to overcome them. You’re provided with tips and jump off points to help you do just that.

Real world examples of using the Transactional Analysis method as a form of therapy are provided, with 3 case studies from Eric Berne’s own experiences with clients. These help to concretise the use of the method in your mind and explore the ways it can work to help those in therapy.

In addition to teaching the core principles and methods of Transactional Analysis, the course outlines the additional training you will need to become a Certified Transactional Analyst. You’ll learn about where you can expect to find work and what you should expect to earn, and the considerations you need to make, should you wish to set up as an independent TA therapist.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

The Transactional Analysis Course is an excellent introduction to the subject for those who wish to take their first steps towards becoming a Certified Transactional Analyst – giving an in-depth understanding of the subject before making the financial and time commitment necessary to become fully-qualified. It will also benefit psychotherapists and counsellors who wish to improve their understanding of the method and what benefits it could bring to your clients.

As Transactional Analysis is also a self-help method, anyone can use the information in the course in their own lives, for the betterment of their communication and relationship skills and to become happier.

2. Psychology of Success:Learn How To Find Success In Your Own Life

The Psychology of Success Course talks of everything that successful people have learned in order to get where they are. It also talks about success itself and explores why society, may have different ideas of what you need in order to be truly happy.

You will learn how to find success in your own life, along with how to set yourself up as a coach, and help others identify, work towards and achieving their own potential.

What is different about successful people, who seem to manage to succeed in everything that they do, whilst others struggle and eventually give up? Successful people have learned certain habits and have an approach that propels them forward to get to their own perfect place, life or environment.

The Psychology of Success Course starts by looking at the definition of success and how this is different for each individual. The course then looks at how society conditions us to think of success, along with how to break the hold that this conditioning has on us.

Students will learn the neuroscience involved with the thinking patterns of both success and self-sabotage. The biology of the brain and the predominant thinking patterns can affect or even change it for the better are discussed. It is the behaviours that stem from problematic thinking that are the biggest saboteurs to success, with relationship problems, insecurity, lack of self-belief, lack of general motivation and even procrastination being areas that, once understood, can be overcome and allow successful thinking to emerge.

The course talks about how to truly understand the thought processes and damaging learning experiences that have been stored within the mind and how to differentiate these from our true personality. A major stumbling block against success is self-limitation. You will learn how to separate yourself into different areas and gain a true understanding of yourself and how capable you are.

The course explores the mindset and personality aspects of human beings. We discuss traits of people who succeed in achieving their dreams and we also take a look at some people that tried hard, sometimes for many years, before their success really took hold in their lives.

Looking at the way you look at the world is directly related to your mindset but also to your consciousness as a whole. We show you some tried and tested success habits that can be practised in your own life.

Having learnt about the Psychology of Success for yourself, the final module explains how to pass this knowledge onto others, to help them find their personal success, by becoming a success coach.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Psychology of Success Course has been created to help anyone who has strived to reach their goals but fallen short, or knows they need to change their mindset to be able to reach their dreams and don't know how to go about it.

The course also shows how to set yourself up as a coach, guiding others to finding success in their lives. If you are already working in a therapy or coaching setting, then this course will also benefit you and add to your skillset, as we look at success from a variety of angles inclusive of traditional mindset management, energy channelling and energetic awareness.

3. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR:Combat Negative Thoughts Through MBSR

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course has been created to give those who suffer from stress, whether constantly or occasionally, the tools to combat negative thoughts and turn the mind into a weapon of positivity that will help you to reclaim your life.

The course does this through giving you both the knowledge of how and why certain techniques work along with how to do them and incorporate them easily into your daily routine.

We all suffer from stress and anxiety at times in our lives. For some, this is a fleeting condition that comes and goes with particular life events for others it is a daily struggle whose affects can be debilitating and hard to overcome; building up until even usually insignificant things can seem impossible to get through. No matter how often you feel the affects of stress and how powerfully, stress is a state of mind, which, left unchecked, can quickly turn into a physical condition.

The course gives students an in-depth look into what Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is. This includes information on its origins and the practice of mindfulness, deep breathing, and meditation and their affects on the mind and body. Students are invited to practice mindfulness following exercises.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course covers mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation; explaining what they are, the differences between them (and how phrases like ‘mindfulness meditation’ can be confusing), and the benefits to your mind and body of practising each.

Stress and anxiety create a negative chemical change in your brain, in a similar, but opposite, way practising mediation and being mindful can also create a positive chemical change. Students will learn exactly what these changes are, and will be introduced to more techniques that will help them to cultivate the habits of meditation and mindfulness.

For chronic sufferers of stress, the reaction to negative triggers can have damaging affects on the body and mind. The MBSR Course discusses these effects and, conversely, the positive effects of a mindful practice, along with imparting practical techniques that can be employed the moment the feeling of stress comes on.

Students are provided with practical, illustrated yoga techniques that they can practice themselves and combine with mediation techniques, to more affectively de-stress both the mind and the body. Stress can easily manifest itself as a result of miscommunication with the people in your life or because an individual finds it difficult to communication certain things.You will learn how to become a better at communicating so that conflicts can be rectified before they can become lasting problems.

As mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is at the core of this course, students will be guided through the structure of an 8-week programme in MBCT. This imparts not only a theoretical knowledge but a practical one also.

Knowing that there are so many people who have been where you’ve been and want to be, where you are now can inspire you to want to help others. With this in mind this course guides students through setting up their own MBSR practice, should they wish to impart their newly-found knowledge and make it an even bigger part of their lives.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course is something that can benefit everyone, though the focus is on those who suffer from stress, anxiety and/or depression, and want to be able to help themselves in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic/medicine-free.

The course will also be beneficial to those who know someone who is going through the aforementioned conditions and may wish to study with them, as a support to them. Likewise, the course proves as an excellent study source for those in caring professions and those who wish to use what they have learned to help in their careers.

4. Mindfulness Based CBT:Learn How Mindfulness Based CBT Can Improve Your Life

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight week program, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Research shows that MBSR is enormously empowering for patients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy grew from this work. The MBSR program has been adapted so it can be used especially with people who have suffered repeated bouts of depression in their lives.

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self management of anxiety and stress. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the work place and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach in life.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment, while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses.

Who would benefit from this course?

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for prevention of relapse. This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed 3 or more times (sometimes for twenty years or more) find that taking the program and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.

5. Mindfulness for Children:Equip Your Child With The Tools And Benefits Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

6. Positive Psychology:Learn Take A Mindful Or Spiritual Approach To Our Lives

Some of us prefer to take a mindful or spiritual approach to our lives and the problems in it, while others find a practical, logical method works better.

The Positive Psychology Course marries together studies of happiness in both science and nature, to provide students with the knowledge of how to find true happiness and contentment. If you let it, this course will help you to change your life.

The expectations that society puts on us, and the human condition itself, bring about many obstructions in the pursuit of happiness. The Positive Psychology Course explores happiness and the effects modern society have on happiness, as well as how to cope with these environmental factors.

From brain cells to physiology, we discuss the science behind both happiness and sadness. Happiness is about understanding yourself, and a large part of that is based in neuroscience. The course’s second module aids students in understanding the physical, biological changes that occur in our brains on a daily basis, as we feel different things.

Making long term change starts with committing to smaller, more regular changes, which will then make larger changes more accessible, as you will already be well-practiced in changing your mood. Students learn quick consciousness shift/mood lifting techniques, which can be employed to immediately change a person’s mind-set from that of negativity, to positivity.

As an important area to cover when talking about happiness, depression is explored in great detail. The most recent findings on the causes of depressions and how to cope and deal with depression using natural methods, are explored.

The main obstruction when seeking happiness is negative thoughts. We talk about the habit of thinking negatively and how we can cultivate a healthy resilience against this.

The Positive Psychology Course concentrates on understanding our needs and how to meet them, using the PERMA model. Fully broken down and explained this technique ensures resilience and long-term contentment, happiness, and positivity.

There is a universal need for humans to be engaged with something, as it provides curiosity, zest and gratitude in life. This is also linked to an area that is now commonplace in none-medicated mental health care; mindfulness. We discuss each, the link between them, and how they aid positivity and resilience.

As humans we have a need for social and secure relationships, from our first, biological relationships to the relationship with a life partner.The Positive Psychology Course explains the science behind this thinking, and then moves on to teach the final two areas of the PERMA model: meaning and accomplishment.

We will also discuss the practical aspects of setting up and running a happiness focussed business.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Positive Psychology Course is for anyone who wants to be happier (so pretty much everyone) and would like a practical guide that combines the ideas of how to improve your mind from within, with the science of what happens when you follow these actions and understand their positive, physical effects on the brain.

The knowledge learned from within the course should be applied to your own life, whether you feel the need or not (you can never be too happy) but students can also take what they have learned and help others or even use the techniques to aid them in a career in counselling.

7. Psychology:Learn About Greater Knowledge Of Feelings, Abilities And Personalities

Psychology is not only a science and a profession but its concepts can also be used in everyday life. Studying psychology will provide you with greater knowledge of feelings, abilities and personalities.

Most students also find that they gain a greater satisfaction within their job, their family and social life.

Psychology represents a way of thinking. It’s a science that demands researchers to ask precise questions about a particular issue and then to test their ideas through systematic processes.

Psychology is not easily defined. It’s a term that encompasses a broad spectrum of matters in research and practical applications.

It is what scientists and philosophers of various affiliations created to try to fulfil the need to understand the minds and behaviour of various living beings from the very primitive to the most complex. From its roots in philosophy and physiology, psychology is now often known as the ‘science of the mind.’

Your initial answer to this question will likely be quite different to the picture of psychology that will emerge as you work your way through this course. You may be surprised to find that psychology is much greater than analysing people or formulating psychological diagnoses to emotional problems.

It’s also about how people are able to see colour, how stress affects our biological processes and why babies become distressed when separated from their caregiver.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this course, students will have developed the following:

  • Increased knowledge base of the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in psychology.
  • Understanding of basic research methods in psychology
  • Develop and use critical and analytical skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Communication skills
  • Ability to work autonomously
  • An awareness of the applications of psychology

8. Psychoanalysis:Learn The Common Elements Of Psychotherapy

Discover how psychoanalysis was developed by Sigmund Freud and continues to evolve with those who have come after him. You’ll learn about the studies undertaken to prove its effectiveness, how it is used to help clients, and the qualities and training needed to become a professional Psychoanalyst.

From the course, you will first learn about psychotherapy and the differences between this and similar practices. You’ll explore the common elements of psychotherapy and the various ways it can help clients in either one-to-one, couples or group therapy settings and how the clients themselves can get the most from their sessions. You will also learn what the most common forms of psychotherapy are and the differences between their approaches.

The course focusses on psychoanalysis – a method of psychotherapy that places significant emphasis on the contents of the unconscious mind. You will discover what psychoanalysis is and how the practice is used to help clients solve their psychological and emotional problems.

As the founding father of psychoanalysis, it is important to understand the work of Sigmund Freud. From the Psychoanalysis Course, you learn about his life, beliefs, popular and lesser-known theories, and the legacy he has left in the fields of psychology and psychiatry.

The course explains Freud’s theory of Psychosexual Development and the five stages of life that everyone goes through, from birth to becoming a young adult, and how others are opposed to this idea. You’ll also learn about Attachment Theory and how this affects child and adult relationships.

Although psychoanalysis may have begun with Sigmund Freud, it certainly didn’t end with him. This course looks at the people who came after him and the ways in which they have added to his theories on personality and development with their own concepts.

As with most types of therapy and counselling, psychoanalysis has its fair share of naysayers. The course takes a candid view of modern criticisms and to what extent these points may be considered valid, as well as offering counter arguments. You will also learn about the importance of self-reflection within the role of a Psychoanalyst.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

Those interested in the work of Sigmund Freud and the subject of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy will enjoy this course. Along with supplying a good understanding of this therapy, the course also teaches you about the skills and training you will need to pursue a career as a Psychoanalyst.

Studying this course can also help you to understand people better, by enhancing your insight into human nature, which is a skill that can be applied to most professions. The knowledge within would be especially useful to those working in counselling and therapy roles.

9. Neuropsychology:Navigate The Labyrinth That Is The Brain

Navigate the labyrinth of the most complex organ and system ever discovered, the brain. Study the Neuropsychology Course and explore how it is we are able to express and understand emotions, acquire and use language, learn, remember, and plan, and how consciousness and unconscious experiences are shaped by the brain. Build a foundation of biological knowledge, understand the functions of various areas of the brain, and how these relate to developmental disorders and mental health problems, as well as the effects of brain damage.

The course introduces itself by first looking at the wider subject of psychology and the various areas within this, before establishing the aims of neuropsychology. To give the subject context you are provided with its history, how it is applied in everyday settings, and the questions it sets out to answer.

You don’t need an encyclopaedic knowledge of the brain’s anatomy to study the concepts of neuropsychology. However, a good grasp of some terminology and how the various systems of the brain function both independently and together will aid you in understanding the research put forward by neuropsychologists. To ensure you have the information you need, the Neuropsychology Course guides you through the basics of brain anatomy and biological functions associated with the human brain and nervous system. You’ll explore the major areas of the brain and how different cell types transmit signals to one another.

To expand their knowledge of the how the human brain and nervous systems work, neuropsychologists use various research methods and technologies to collect data, including the use of Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computer Tomography (CT), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The course covers how each of these methods is used to provide reliable results and the importance of using group, rather than individual, case studies. You’ll also look at the topic of ethics, including the use of animals in research.

A large and consistent question that has been around since the inception of psychology, is that of the relationship between brain and mind or brain and the “soul”. How the physical can produce the experience of consciousness and whether the brain and mind are distinct from one another. The Neuropsychology Course discusses how the brain generates conscious states, including sleep, hypnosis, stupor and coma, and goes even further by looking at how neuropsychology views free will and the possible existence of a human soul.

Our perception of the world comes about by our brain’s ability to receive sensory input from our five main senses. You’ll learn how each of the sense organs works to receive input and how the brain makes sense of this external stimuli to provide us with the experience of sound, taste, smell, etc. In addition to looking at how the brain usually functions you’ll also learn how damage to the brain can disrupt this process, with phantom limb syndrome and synaesthesia covered extensively.

Humans have a uniquely complex capacity for language. You’ll discover how we develop the ability to speak and process language – looking at the stages we go through, from childhood to adulthood, and how some people become bilingual. The Neuropsychology Course will teach you about disorders of language, such as agraphia and dyslexia, and how brain damage can affect language usage.

The purposes and various types of memory are discussed in the course, including an analysis of which parts of the brain are responsible for the storage and retrieval of memories. You’ll be exposed to the way memory is studied, what happens when particular parts of the brain are damaged, and an explanation of confabulation.

The course addresses mental health problems – looking at what they are and the consensus in Western medicine regarding their causes and treatment. You’ll explore the explanations, risk factors and treatments of the following disorders: depression, anxiety (including phobia), schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Emotions are a fundamental part of human experience. The Neuropsychology Course discusses emotional processing and expressions, including whether this differs between cultures and whether facial expressions are something that are learned or hardwired from birth. You’ll also explore the areas of the brain that are responsible for emotion production and regulation and how brain damage and dysfunction can cause difficulties in this and in understanding emotion.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Neuropsychology Course is perfect for anyone who has ever wondered how we, as humans, are capable of all the amazing things that we too-often take for granted, many of which separate us from every other living entity on the planet.

If you are interested in this field of study but are unsure whether to commit your time and finances to a full-time, formal qualification, this course provides an exceptional introduction and foundation of knowledge from which to build.

If you work or would like to work, in a caring or support role with people who have developmental disorders or mental illnesses, you will gain a greater understanding of these conditions and how they are treated.

10. Philosophy:Learn Different Ways To Understand Philosophy

The Philosophy Course talks you through the major philosophical schools of thought - Idealism, Materialism, Introspection, Rationalism, Empiricism, Scepticism, Existentialism and Modern Philosophy, and many of the major philosophers throughout time. You’ll look at four different ways to understand philosophy: branch or doctrine, time period, movement, and by philosopher. For each concept, you’ll learn the philosophical terms used in describing them.

In today’s society, not many of us feel we have the time to consider life’s bigger questions – “What can we know of the world?”, “Why are we here?”, “Are we real?”. This is the preoccupation of philosophers but how will you benefit from learning about this? Whether we are aware or not, we all follow a life philosophy. This course provides you with some choices from which you can develop your own personal philosophy, rather than allowing one to be imposed on you, or not making any choices at all regarding your own life. Philosophy is a discipline which forces us to question our existence so that we may fine tune our view of the world and how we choose to live.

In addition to this, the ability to philosophise is a valuable skill. If you learn to objectively consider arguments for and against ideas that challenge your perception of the very nature of The Universe, then your overall ability to theorise, discuss and debate will be greatly improved, whether the topic is sport, politics, ethics or time-travel.

The Philosophy Course first introduces the subject – giving an explanation as to what it is and the benefits you will gain from your studies. From here the course briefly explains each of the main philosophical doctrines and the relationship between Philosophy, Metaphysics, and Religion. It also gives a timeline of major philosophers – pinpointing when each was active, the theories they put forward and their contributions to society. To give clarity straight from the start of the course, a glossary of philosophical terms is included.

Moving on from this, the course talks you through each of the following philosophical theories: idealism, materialism, stoicism, rationalism, empiricism, scepticism, existentialism, and modern philosophy.

For each concept, you will be exposed to a glossary of terms used in the concept, the overriding basis of the concept and the differing schools of thought within each. You will then learn about the concepts and theories put forward by the relevant philosophers and how they relate to the modern day.

Below is a summary of the topics you will learn about in the Philosophy Course.

Idealism explains the physical world as only existing insofar as it can be perceived, with consciousness being reality and one’s thoughts, ideas, and perceptions being how the world is understood. A doctrine of the ancient Greeks, in exploring Idealism you will learn about the life and the ideas of Socrates, Plato, and the 18th Century German Philosopher Immanuel Kant.

Supported by Epicurus, Hegel, and Marx, materialism states that we can only prove the existence of matter. The overriding questions of materialism are how and if the mind and the body are related to one another and it considers thoughts, consciousness, and spirit as manifestations of and in relation to the material world, making it a type of monism and completely opposite to idealism.

Noted Stoic philosophers, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Zeno are discussed to explain stoicism, which promotes leading a life of inner calm, clear judgment, freedom from suffering and mastering control over reactions to the states of pleasure and pain.

An epistemological doctrine, rationalism is the belief that we understand our world through our intellect and deductive reasoning, rather than sensory information, and which seeks to understand the origin of knowledge. To explain this, the course talks you through the work of René Descartes and Leibniz.

Empiricism is similar in approach to rationalism but is in contradiction to its way of thinking, with Empiricists reaching their conclusions by measuring and using sensory data and being based on experience or empirical evidence, rather than logical reasoning. The Philosophy Course cites John Locke and David Hume in describing this doctrine.

The word scepticism is based on the Greek verb ‘skeptomai’, meaning to think about or reflect on. It teaches us to be comfortable with our doubts and not to cling onto our assumptions, allowing for a continual sense of wonder, not the negative viewpoint, which scepticism is often incorrectly associated with. The course explains the beliefs of Sir Francis Bacon and how Zen Buddhists are actually sceptics.

Distancing itself from any one school of thought, existentialism emphasises individuality, freedom, and free-will, focusing on the human experience, personal responsibility, and the individual’s search for meaning in the world. This concept is described further through the work of Kierkegaard and Sartre.

Looking at Noam Chomsky and Sir Roger Scruton, the Philosophy Course explains how modern philosophy is intertwined with other disciplines so that they may draw broader philosophical conclusions. Through this, you will learn about paradoxes, thought experiments, and quantum physics. Modern Philosophers seek to answer the questions of our time, such as:

  • Is peace possible?
  • Are non-traditional family structures and relationships moral or even possible?
  • What does it mean to be human in a time when our dependence on machines only continues to increase?

1. Transactional Analysis:Gain Insightful Information About This Therapy Method

The Transactional Analysis Course is packed with information about this therapy method - how it can be used in both day-to-day life and psychoanalytic practice, either to improve your own life or to help others improve theirs. Learn what Transactional Analysis is, what its core concepts are and how to use it for the analysis of behaviour, therapy, and self-help.

With various sources defining Transactional Analysis (TA) differently to each other, the course begins by looking at what Transactional Analysis actually is, when and where it’s used and by whom. You’ll be introduced to the history of the practice and its creator, Eric Berne.

With introductions made, the course continues by explaining the core principles and concepts of Transactional Analysis, such as ego states, transactions, games, scripts and life positions, and how these effect our relationships. With these concepts in mind, you’ll look at how to use Transactional Analysis as a diagnostic tool in a therapy setting and the methods used to work out the underlying issues that may be causing a person’s problems.

Of these concepts, ‘games’ is particularly important, so much so that Eric Berne wrote a book on the matter. The Transactional Analysis Course provides several examples of each game type, to provide clarity on the subject. You may well find yourself recognising many of these being played out in your own life.

You’ll learn how to put these concepts to work – using Transactional Analysis in a clinical setting. You’ll be guided through how to analyse transactions, games, scripts, and relationships and how to use the TA method in therapy, to help people to alter their perspectives and change their lives.

The course looks at different types of patients and their therapeutic goals, and how to use TA in group therapy. It explores the use of Transactional Analysis as a unique approach to marriage therapy and relationship, explaining how it considers the structure of marriage and how to make the individuals in relationships happier and healthier.

Transactional Analysis is an incredible tool to use in therapy but it is just as powerful for self-help. The Transactional Analysis Course looks at how the practice can be used in your own life, to highlight and understand issues and work on your personal development, to overcome them. You’re provided with tips and jump off points to help you do just that.

Real world examples of using the Transactional Analysis method as a form of therapy are provided, with 3 case studies from Eric Berne’s own experiences with clients. These help to concretise the use of the method in your mind and explore the ways it can work to help those in therapy.

In addition to teaching the core principles and methods of Transactional Analysis, the course outlines the additional training you will need to become a Certified Transactional Analyst. You’ll learn about where you can expect to find work and what you should expect to earn, and the considerations you need to make, should you wish to set up as an independent TA therapist.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

The Transactional Analysis Course is an excellent introduction to the subject for those who wish to take their first steps towards becoming a Certified Transactional Analyst – giving an in-depth understanding of the subject before making the financial and time commitment necessary to become fully-qualified. It will also benefit psychotherapists and counsellors who wish to improve their understanding of the method and what benefits it could bring to your clients.

As Transactional Analysis is also a self-help method, anyone can use the information in the course in their own lives, for the betterment of their communication and relationship skills and to become happier.

2. Psychology of Success:Learn How To Find Success In Your Own Life

The Psychology of Success Course talks of everything that successful people have learned in order to get where they are. It also talks about success itself and explores why society, may have different ideas of what you need in order to be truly happy.

You will learn how to find success in your own life, along with how to set yourself up as a coach, and help others identify, work towards and achieving their own potential.

What is different about successful people, who seem to manage to succeed in everything that they do, whilst others struggle and eventually give up? Successful people have learned certain habits and have an approach that propels them forward to get to their own perfect place, life or environment.

The Psychology of Success Course starts by looking at the definition of success and how this is different for each individual. The course then looks at how society conditions us to think of success, along with how to break the hold that this conditioning has on us.

Students will learn the neuroscience involved with the thinking patterns of both success and self-sabotage. The biology of the brain and the predominant thinking patterns can affect or even change it for the better are discussed. It is the behaviours that stem from problematic thinking that are the biggest saboteurs to success, with relationship problems, insecurity, lack of self-belief, lack of general motivation and even procrastination being areas that, once understood, can be overcome and allow successful thinking to emerge.

The course talks about how to truly understand the thought processes and damaging learning experiences that have been stored within the mind and how to differentiate these from our true personality. A major stumbling block against success is self-limitation. You will learn how to separate yourself into different areas and gain a true understanding of yourself and how capable you are.

The course explores the mindset and personality aspects of human beings. We discuss traits of people who succeed in achieving their dreams and we also take a look at some people that tried hard, sometimes for many years, before their success really took hold in their lives.

Looking at the way you look at the world is directly related to your mindset but also to your consciousness as a whole. We show you some tried and tested success habits that can be practised in your own life.

Having learnt about the Psychology of Success for yourself, the final module explains how to pass this knowledge onto others, to help them find their personal success, by becoming a success coach.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Psychology of Success Course has been created to help anyone who has strived to reach their goals but fallen short, or knows they need to change their mindset to be able to reach their dreams and don't know how to go about it.

The course also shows how to set yourself up as a coach, guiding others to finding success in their lives. If you are already working in a therapy or coaching setting, then this course will also benefit you and add to your skillset, as we look at success from a variety of angles inclusive of traditional mindset management, energy channelling and energetic awareness.

3. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR:Combat Negative Thoughts Through MBSR

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course has been created to give those who suffer from stress, whether constantly or occasionally, the tools to combat negative thoughts and turn the mind into a weapon of positivity that will help you to reclaim your life.

The course does this through giving you both the knowledge of how and why certain techniques work along with how to do them and incorporate them easily into your daily routine.

We all suffer from stress and anxiety at times in our lives. For some, this is a fleeting condition that comes and goes with particular life events for others it is a daily struggle whose affects can be debilitating and hard to overcome; building up until even usually insignificant things can seem impossible to get through. No matter how often you feel the affects of stress and how powerfully, stress is a state of mind, which, left unchecked, can quickly turn into a physical condition.

The course gives students an in-depth look into what Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is. This includes information on its origins and the practice of mindfulness, deep breathing, and meditation and their affects on the mind and body. Students are invited to practice mindfulness following exercises.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course covers mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation; explaining what they are, the differences between them (and how phrases like ‘mindfulness meditation’ can be confusing), and the benefits to your mind and body of practising each.

Stress and anxiety create a negative chemical change in your brain, in a similar, but opposite, way practising mediation and being mindful can also create a positive chemical change. Students will learn exactly what these changes are, and will be introduced to more techniques that will help them to cultivate the habits of meditation and mindfulness.

For chronic sufferers of stress, the reaction to negative triggers can have damaging affects on the body and mind. The MBSR Course discusses these effects and, conversely, the positive effects of a mindful practice, along with imparting practical techniques that can be employed the moment the feeling of stress comes on.

Students are provided with practical, illustrated yoga techniques that they can practice themselves and combine with mediation techniques, to more affectively de-stress both the mind and the body. Stress can easily manifest itself as a result of miscommunication with the people in your life or because an individual finds it difficult to communication certain things.You will learn how to become a better at communicating so that conflicts can be rectified before they can become lasting problems.

As mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is at the core of this course, students will be guided through the structure of an 8-week programme in MBCT. This imparts not only a theoretical knowledge but a practical one also.

Knowing that there are so many people who have been where you’ve been and want to be, where you are now can inspire you to want to help others. With this in mind this course guides students through setting up their own MBSR practice, should they wish to impart their newly-found knowledge and make it an even bigger part of their lives.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course is something that can benefit everyone, though the focus is on those who suffer from stress, anxiety and/or depression, and want to be able to help themselves in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic/medicine-free.

The course will also be beneficial to those who know someone who is going through the aforementioned conditions and may wish to study with them, as a support to them. Likewise, the course proves as an excellent study source for those in caring professions and those who wish to use what they have learned to help in their careers.

4. Mindfulness Based CBT:Learn How Mindfulness Based CBT Can Improve Your Life

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight week program, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Research shows that MBSR is enormously empowering for patients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy grew from this work. The MBSR program has been adapted so it can be used especially with people who have suffered repeated bouts of depression in their lives.

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self management of anxiety and stress. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the work place and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach in life.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment, while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses.

Who would benefit from this course?

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for prevention of relapse. This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed 3 or more times (sometimes for twenty years or more) find that taking the program and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.

5. Mindfulness for Children:Equip Your Child With The Tools And Benefits Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

6. Positive Psychology:Learn Take A Mindful Or Spiritual Approach To Our Lives

Some of us prefer to take a mindful or spiritual approach to our lives and the problems in it, while others find a practical, logical method works better.

The Positive Psychology Course marries together studies of happiness in both science and nature, to provide students with the knowledge of how to find true happiness and contentment. If you let it, this course will help you to change your life.

The expectations that society puts on us, and the human condition itself, bring about many obstructions in the pursuit of happiness. The Positive Psychology Course explores happiness and the effects modern society have on happiness, as well as how to cope with these environmental factors.

From brain cells to physiology, we discuss the science behind both happiness and sadness. Happiness is about understanding yourself, and a large part of that is based in neuroscience. The course’s second module aids students in understanding the physical, biological changes that occur in our brains on a daily basis, as we feel different things.

Making long term change starts with committing to smaller, more regular changes, which will then make larger changes more accessible, as you will already be well-practiced in changing your mood. Students learn quick consciousness shift/mood lifting techniques, which can be employed to immediately change a person’s mind-set from that of negativity, to positivity.

As an important area to cover when talking about happiness, depression is explored in great detail. The most recent findings on the causes of depressions and how to cope and deal with depression using natural methods, are explored.

The main obstruction when seeking happiness is negative thoughts. We talk about the habit of thinking negatively and how we can cultivate a healthy resilience against this.

The Positive Psychology Course concentrates on understanding our needs and how to meet them, using the PERMA model. Fully broken down and explained this technique ensures resilience and long-term contentment, happiness, and positivity.

There is a universal need for humans to be engaged with something, as it provides curiosity, zest and gratitude in life. This is also linked to an area that is now commonplace in none-medicated mental health care; mindfulness. We discuss each, the link between them, and how they aid positivity and resilience.

As humans we have a need for social and secure relationships, from our first, biological relationships to the relationship with a life partner.The Positive Psychology Course explains the science behind this thinking, and then moves on to teach the final two areas of the PERMA model: meaning and accomplishment.

We will also discuss the practical aspects of setting up and running a happiness focussed business.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Positive Psychology Course is for anyone who wants to be happier (so pretty much everyone) and would like a practical guide that combines the ideas of how to improve your mind from within, with the science of what happens when you follow these actions and understand their positive, physical effects on the brain.

The knowledge learned from within the course should be applied to your own life, whether you feel the need or not (you can never be too happy) but students can also take what they have learned and help others or even use the techniques to aid them in a career in counselling.

7. Psychology:Learn About Greater Knowledge Of Feelings, Abilities And Personalities

Psychology is not only a science and a profession but its concepts can also be used in everyday life. Studying psychology will provide you with greater knowledge of feelings, abilities and personalities.

Most students also find that they gain a greater satisfaction within their job, their family and social life.

Psychology represents a way of thinking. It’s a science that demands researchers to ask precise questions about a particular issue and then to test their ideas through systematic processes.

Psychology is not easily defined. It’s a term that encompasses a broad spectrum of matters in research and practical applications.

It is what scientists and philosophers of various affiliations created to try to fulfil the need to understand the minds and behaviour of various living beings from the very primitive to the most complex. From its roots in philosophy and physiology, psychology is now often known as the ‘science of the mind.’

Your initial answer to this question will likely be quite different to the picture of psychology that will emerge as you work your way through this course. You may be surprised to find that psychology is much greater than analysing people or formulating psychological diagnoses to emotional problems.

It’s also about how people are able to see colour, how stress affects our biological processes and why babies become distressed when separated from their caregiver.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this course, students will have developed the following:

  • Increased knowledge base of the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in psychology.
  • Understanding of basic research methods in psychology
  • Develop and use critical and analytical skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Communication skills
  • Ability to work autonomously
  • An awareness of the applications of psychology

8. Psychoanalysis:Learn The Common Elements Of Psychotherapy

Discover how psychoanalysis was developed by Sigmund Freud and continues to evolve with those who have come after him. You’ll learn about the studies undertaken to prove its effectiveness, how it is used to help clients, and the qualities and training needed to become a professional Psychoanalyst.

From the course, you will first learn about psychotherapy and the differences between this and similar practices. You’ll explore the common elements of psychotherapy and the various ways it can help clients in either one-to-one, couples or group therapy settings and how the clients themselves can get the most from their sessions. You will also learn what the most common forms of psychotherapy are and the differences between their approaches.

The course focusses on psychoanalysis – a method of psychotherapy that places significant emphasis on the contents of the unconscious mind. You will discover what psychoanalysis is and how the practice is used to help clients solve their psychological and emotional problems.

As the founding father of psychoanalysis, it is important to understand the work of Sigmund Freud. From the Psychoanalysis Course, you learn about his life, beliefs, popular and lesser-known theories, and the legacy he has left in the fields of psychology and psychiatry.

The course explains Freud’s theory of Psychosexual Development and the five stages of life that everyone goes through, from birth to becoming a young adult, and how others are opposed to this idea. You’ll also learn about Attachment Theory and how this affects child and adult relationships.

Although psychoanalysis may have begun with Sigmund Freud, it certainly didn’t end with him. This course looks at the people who came after him and the ways in which they have added to his theories on personality and development with their own concepts.

As with most types of therapy and counselling, psychoanalysis has its fair share of naysayers. The course takes a candid view of modern criticisms and to what extent these points may be considered valid, as well as offering counter arguments. You will also learn about the importance of self-reflection within the role of a Psychoanalyst.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

Those interested in the work of Sigmund Freud and the subject of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy will enjoy this course. Along with supplying a good understanding of this therapy, the course also teaches you about the skills and training you will need to pursue a career as a Psychoanalyst.

Studying this course can also help you to understand people better, by enhancing your insight into human nature, which is a skill that can be applied to most professions. The knowledge within would be especially useful to those working in counselling and therapy roles.

9. Neuropsychology:Navigate The Labyrinth That Is The Brain

Navigate the labyrinth of the most complex organ and system ever discovered, the brain. Study the Neuropsychology Course and explore how it is we are able to express and understand emotions, acquire and use language, learn, remember, and plan, and how consciousness and unconscious experiences are shaped by the brain. Build a foundation of biological knowledge, understand the functions of various areas of the brain, and how these relate to developmental disorders and mental health problems, as well as the effects of brain damage.

The course introduces itself by first looking at the wider subject of psychology and the various areas within this, before establishing the aims of neuropsychology. To give the subject context you are provided with its history, how it is applied in everyday settings, and the questions it sets out to answer.

You don’t need an encyclopaedic knowledge of the brain’s anatomy to study the concepts of neuropsychology. However, a good grasp of some terminology and how the various systems of the brain function both independently and together will aid you in understanding the research put forward by neuropsychologists. To ensure you have the information you need, the Neuropsychology Course guides you through the basics of brain anatomy and biological functions associated with the human brain and nervous system. You’ll explore the major areas of the brain and how different cell types transmit signals to one another.

To expand their knowledge of the how the human brain and nervous systems work, neuropsychologists use various research methods and technologies to collect data, including the use of Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computer Tomography (CT), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The course covers how each of these methods is used to provide reliable results and the importance of using group, rather than individual, case studies. You’ll also look at the topic of ethics, including the use of animals in research.

A large and consistent question that has been around since the inception of psychology, is that of the relationship between brain and mind or brain and the “soul”. How the physical can produce the experience of consciousness and whether the brain and mind are distinct from one another. The Neuropsychology Course discusses how the brain generates conscious states, including sleep, hypnosis, stupor and coma, and goes even further by looking at how neuropsychology views free will and the possible existence of a human soul.

Our perception of the world comes about by our brain’s ability to receive sensory input from our five main senses. You’ll learn how each of the sense organs works to receive input and how the brain makes sense of this external stimuli to provide us with the experience of sound, taste, smell, etc. In addition to looking at how the brain usually functions you’ll also learn how damage to the brain can disrupt this process, with phantom limb syndrome and synaesthesia covered extensively.

Humans have a uniquely complex capacity for language. You’ll discover how we develop the ability to speak and process language – looking at the stages we go through, from childhood to adulthood, and how some people become bilingual. The Neuropsychology Course will teach you about disorders of language, such as agraphia and dyslexia, and how brain damage can affect language usage.

The purposes and various types of memory are discussed in the course, including an analysis of which parts of the brain are responsible for the storage and retrieval of memories. You’ll be exposed to the way memory is studied, what happens when particular parts of the brain are damaged, and an explanation of confabulation.

The course addresses mental health problems – looking at what they are and the consensus in Western medicine regarding their causes and treatment. You’ll explore the explanations, risk factors and treatments of the following disorders: depression, anxiety (including phobia), schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Emotions are a fundamental part of human experience. The Neuropsychology Course discusses emotional processing and expressions, including whether this differs between cultures and whether facial expressions are something that are learned or hardwired from birth. You’ll also explore the areas of the brain that are responsible for emotion production and regulation and how brain damage and dysfunction can cause difficulties in this and in understanding emotion.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Neuropsychology Course is perfect for anyone who has ever wondered how we, as humans, are capable of all the amazing things that we too-often take for granted, many of which separate us from every other living entity on the planet.

If you are interested in this field of study but are unsure whether to commit your time and finances to a full-time, formal qualification, this course provides an exceptional introduction and foundation of knowledge from which to build.

If you work or would like to work, in a caring or support role with people who have developmental disorders or mental illnesses, you will gain a greater understanding of these conditions and how they are treated.

10. Philosophy:Learn Different Ways To Understand Philosophy

The Philosophy Course talks you through the major philosophical schools of thought - Idealism, Materialism, Introspection, Rationalism, Empiricism, Scepticism, Existentialism and Modern Philosophy, and many of the major philosophers throughout time. You’ll look at four different ways to understand philosophy: branch or doctrine, time period, movement, and by philosopher. For each concept, you’ll learn the philosophical terms used in describing them.

In today’s society, not many of us feel we have the time to consider life’s bigger questions – “What can we know of the world?”, “Why are we here?”, “Are we real?”. This is the preoccupation of philosophers but how will you benefit from learning about this? Whether we are aware or not, we all follow a life philosophy. This course provides you with some choices from which you can develop your own personal philosophy, rather than allowing one to be imposed on you, or not making any choices at all regarding your own life. Philosophy is a discipline which forces us to question our existence so that we may fine tune our view of the world and how we choose to live.

In addition to this, the ability to philosophise is a valuable skill. If you learn to objectively consider arguments for and against ideas that challenge your perception of the very nature of The Universe, then your overall ability to theorise, discuss and debate will be greatly improved, whether the topic is sport, politics, ethics or time-travel.

The Philosophy Course first introduces the subject – giving an explanation as to what it is and the benefits you will gain from your studies. From here the course briefly explains each of the main philosophical doctrines and the relationship between Philosophy, Metaphysics, and Religion. It also gives a timeline of major philosophers – pinpointing when each was active, the theories they put forward and their contributions to society. To give clarity straight from the start of the course, a glossary of philosophical terms is included.

Moving on from this, the course talks you through each of the following philosophical theories: idealism, materialism, stoicism, rationalism, empiricism, scepticism, existentialism, and modern philosophy.

For each concept, you will be exposed to a glossary of terms used in the concept, the overriding basis of the concept and the differing schools of thought within each. You will then learn about the concepts and theories put forward by the relevant philosophers and how they relate to the modern day.

Below is a summary of the topics you will learn about in the Philosophy Course.

Idealism explains the physical world as only existing insofar as it can be perceived, with consciousness being reality and one’s thoughts, ideas, and perceptions being how the world is understood. A doctrine of the ancient Greeks, in exploring Idealism you will learn about the life and the ideas of Socrates, Plato, and the 18th Century German Philosopher Immanuel Kant.

Supported by Epicurus, Hegel, and Marx, materialism states that we can only prove the existence of matter. The overriding questions of materialism are how and if the mind and the body are related to one another and it considers thoughts, consciousness, and spirit as manifestations of and in relation to the material world, making it a type of monism and completely opposite to idealism.

Noted Stoic philosophers, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Zeno are discussed to explain stoicism, which promotes leading a life of inner calm, clear judgment, freedom from suffering and mastering control over reactions to the states of pleasure and pain.

An epistemological doctrine, rationalism is the belief that we understand our world through our intellect and deductive reasoning, rather than sensory information, and which seeks to understand the origin of knowledge. To explain this, the course talks you through the work of René Descartes and Leibniz.

Empiricism is similar in approach to rationalism but is in contradiction to its way of thinking, with Empiricists reaching their conclusions by measuring and using sensory data and being based on experience or empirical evidence, rather than logical reasoning. The Philosophy Course cites John Locke and David Hume in describing this doctrine.

The word scepticism is based on the Greek verb ‘skeptomai’, meaning to think about or reflect on. It teaches us to be comfortable with our doubts and not to cling onto our assumptions, allowing for a continual sense of wonder, not the negative viewpoint, which scepticism is often incorrectly associated with. The course explains the beliefs of Sir Francis Bacon and how Zen Buddhists are actually sceptics.

Distancing itself from any one school of thought, existentialism emphasises individuality, freedom, and free-will, focusing on the human experience, personal responsibility, and the individual’s search for meaning in the world. This concept is described further through the work of Kierkegaard and Sartre.

Looking at Noam Chomsky and Sir Roger Scruton, the Philosophy Course explains how modern philosophy is intertwined with other disciplines so that they may draw broader philosophical conclusions. Through this, you will learn about paradoxes, thought experiments, and quantum physics. Modern Philosophers seek to answer the questions of our time, such as:

  • Is peace possible?
  • Are non-traditional family structures and relationships moral or even possible?
  • What does it mean to be human in a time when our dependence on machines only continues to increase?
