What could you use if you only had one semester for psychology

Recommended Posts

This is dd last year and there is still so much more I would like her to be exposed to.:) We have followed her likes and that has been nice, but with college/career choices looming it would be good to have some knowledge of pscyh.


I like the sound of Myers text but can it be done lightly in one semester? She wants to take some other classes that have filled her schedule but she may have one semester open.


If not Myers, perhaps some good books that would give her an overview. This may make more sense and now that I write it out may be a better question.


Thanks as always everyone,

Whatever you do, I'd toss in reading (and discussing):

1) "Gifts Differing"



(either get her tested with the MBTI or use the Keirsey Personality Type Sorter in the front of "Please Understand Me II" which should give you the same thing (you can actually see the whole Keirsey test in the Amazon preview of the book:

http://www.amazon.com/Please-Understand-Temperament-Character-Intelligence/dp/1885705026/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b )



2) "Brain Rules" by Medina



Brain Rules has cute videos on the web you can watch for most of the "rules". I love Psych and both books are required reading before "graduating" around here. ;)
