The Demystifying Psychology class is in session as this post 'goes to air'.... these photos were taken at their previous session on June 19. Great to be able to share these images of the group members in action! Thanks also to Andi for the terrific screen dump.
Ten people joined the first Demystifying Psychology “Zoom” Discussion Group on Friday 15 May. Forensic Psychology is the current topic. We started with an outline of a few basic concepts then jumped into some interesting comments and discussions. We are using the free Zoom version so at the 40-minute mark we were logged out … just as we found our rhythm.
All U3A members are welcome to join these discussion groups as often as you wish. You might be interested in the topics, want to exercise the grey matter, or socialise Jetson style. (Enjoy a funny short “blast to the past” at https://youtu.be/0idWiHiasKg). Join us.
The relaxation of Covid19 restrictions to allow visitors to our homes is good news for non-tech members who are interested in this discussion group. This might be an opportunity for tech-savvy members to invite a friend over to join the discussion. Of course, social distancing guidelines continue.
This is what happened (and was discovered) at our first discussion group.
… and then we were timed out!!
Forty minutes is not enough. Future groups will be extended using the method in 5 above. New extended times are:
These extended times may not fit with some diaries. My apologies. Your contribution is welcome so please feel free to join and leave each discussion group as you need to.

We are all doing a great job in these historical times. Keep well.

A ten-session light-hearted course introducing psychology in everyday life and some of the theories that attempt to explain how and why we do things. The course will include personality types and preferred coping styles; theories and practices applied to drug treatment, raising children, family violence, and other topics as suggested by participants. The course will also include social psychology, the concepts of obedience, power, group dynamics and states of mind. We'll then discuss how we experience the various theories as they play out in daily life.
