oooohhh Live is gonna be mad when he sees you mentioned us in the same sentence!
it might seem complicated at first but its really simple once you get your feet wet
I'd suggest these three topics to begin with (in order) I can email you power points of the abnormal and lifespan that I have from a few terms ago, you'll have to buy the general one
Life Span Psychology
General, to get the basics down and understand the brain functioning, motives and conditioning theories...plus some other nteresting things
Life span to understand how we develop our personality. This is important especially in training as it can show us flaws we made during our beginner phase.
abnormal is kinda overkill but its interesting...it definitely reveals root causes of certain development pertaining to attitude or lack of attitude
anything on CBT, cognitive behavioral Therapy or dialectical Behavioral Therapy. To understand why I said this, think of yourself as a patient that needs to be regulated mentally and emotionally. in reality you're a trainee looking for tips to focus better. these strategies will help you become a better planner and broaden certain aspects of training and eventually help you push through mental blocks. The same principle applies to me seeing a mach client, I have to see what they need, how they react to certain current situations, and find a way to get them from whwere they are and whee they need to be.
it will all seem a bit self helpy until you get into the actual reading
send me your email address if you want those power points I pretty much have those two classes from start to finish so you don't have to hunt everything down for yourself. Or I can just talk you through some stuff if you want it that way instead.
^^ offer is open to anyone
