1. Criminal Psychologist: Delve Into The Mind-Boggling World Of Criminal Behaviour

Delve into the mind-boggling world of criminal behaviour, false testimonies and criminal profiling, detecting the reliability of witnesses and providing psychological aid to victims. Take the Criminal Psychologist Course and explore the fundamentals of this field, grasping its core concepts and principles and their applications in the real world.

Although we all have our own understanding of what crime is and what it entails, the Criminal Psychologist Course provides a definition of crime and crime prevalence and looks at why criminal activity is on the rise and the types of crime that exist. You’ll delve deeper into the subject, exploring the psychological, social and economic aspects of criminal behaviour before learning about forensic criminology and its importance and use in society.

Another important subject, Forensic Psychology, is covered. You will learn what it is, how it helps in the understanding and preventing of crime, and how it interacts with the law and other legal areas. You will discover why Forensic Psychology plays such a pivotal role in the courtroom for the defence and other legal attorneys.

Criminal Psychologists understand criminals and their behaviours, their intentions and reactions. This course explains the roles, both in an investigation and in the courtroom, and the scope and future, of those working in this career.

When conducting psychological research, it is important to remain as objective as possible so that the results are not swayed by individual judgement, biases or anecdotal facts. To ensure your understanding of correct research methodology, you will learn the ‘scientific method’ of research – gaining the knowledge of how researchers and psychologists collect data, perform detailed analysis and reach conclusions from their experiments.

Getting to the root of criminality, the Criminal Psychologist Course talks you through the theories behind criminal acts. Theories covered include: Biological and Physiological, Cognitive Theories, Behavioural Theories, Self-Control Theory, and Psychodynamic Theories

When interviewing a suspect, it can be difficult to keep your own feelings and bias under control but it is important to ensure they are unaware of all that you know or suspect. You will discover how criminal psychologists can struggle with the conflict between gut feelings and evidence, and how to make an unbiased and correct decision.

The role of a criminal psychologist doesn’t begin and end with those who have broken the law but also includes working with victims and witnesses. You’ll learn how to work with a victim to extract vital information and how to detect false accusations, along with understanding the reasons they may do this. A victim may also be in need of psychological help especially if they have been subject to violent or aggressive behaviour; you’ll find out how a criminal psychologist can provide support.

Another important person in a case is the witness. As a criminal psychologist, it will be part of your role to interview witnesses and assess credibility and reliability. Through studying the Criminal Psychologist Course you’ll learn how to detect lies, false information, false testimonies, find any links to the suspect or the victim that can bias their information, and gain an understanding of the reliability of memory.

The work done by a criminal psychologist at crime scenes and with suspects, victims and witnesses culminates in an appearance at court. You will learn what role a criminal psychologist plays in court and how witnesses and expert witnesses can affect a jury’s decision.

Who would benefit from this course?

Providing foundational knowledge and insight into the core practices and principles that comprise the role, the Criminal Psychologist Course is perfect if you are considering a career in this area. Not only will you be immersed in the minds of criminals and their behaviours but the course also acts as a comprehensive overview to the necessary degree-level of study required to gain employment in this field.

The course will also prove insightful to those interested in the criminal mind and the reasoning behind criminal behaviour, how the victims of crime can be rehabilitated, how to detect false statements, and the role of a criminal psychologist in legal proceedings.

2. Forensic Psychology: Understanding The Value Of Psychology In Detecting Crime 

Our outstanding Forensic Psychology Course has been specially written to enable anyone interested in learning about the use of psychological principles to understand the behaviour of criminals, and the value of psychology in detecting crime.

The best news is that this fantastic course requires no previous experience, and has no entry requirements. You just need a passion for the subject!

The course has been designed for someone without any prior knowledge of the subject and will allow the student to study the course at their own pace in their own home, emailed directly to your inbox. This course does not entitle you to work as a Forensic Psychologist, though will give you a solid knowledge base and an invaluable insight of child psychology without investing and committing a sizeable investment and time enrolling onto a college or university programme, the course gives you a great opportunity to test the water, and if you do enjoy it, you have a solid foundation. As after completing this course, you may wish to continue your training with a college or university to build a platform for your career.

Who would benefit from the course?

This course is ideal for those that are either complete beginners to the field of Forensic psychology and are considering making a career change to become a Forensic psychologist, with the aim of getting an insight and understanding of Forensic psychology, or existing Forensic psychologists, teachers, coaches or trainers looking to reinforce their knowledge or to pick up some new skills. This course is also ideal if you are interested in a career in Forensic Psychology, though are unsure if you want to commit yourself financially and time wise to a full Forensic Psychologist qualification.

It is an excellent course for those expanding their knowledge of psychology or crime detection, crime prevention, or working with offenders.

3. 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

4. Genealogy: Learn About Where You And Your Family Came From 

Learning about where you and your family came from can be an incredible journey of discovery. Finding out about your ancestry and lineage tells you more about yourself than you may have first realised. Though knowing how to trace your family tree can be difficult and then once you find more and more information it can be hard to know what is important and what is not.

The Genealogy Course is your guide on the journey; teaching you where and how to find relevant information in your search and what to do with it to keep you organised and help you find out even more.

Your Surname
Surnames are important to each and every one of us before we start researching family trees. Understanding the background to surnames will establish a good overview of genealogy.

Recording your Sources
Recording your research is vital because while it might not seem important when you first start researching your family, the larger your family tree grows the less likely you are to remember where all your information came from.

Researching your Family Tree
When you are interested in finding out more about your family tree, starting with the basics will get you ready to learn more and extend your family tree much further than you might have thought possible.

There are some charts supplied with this course, which you can use to record your family tree information. There are pedigree charts for recording either five or seven generations, a family group sheet and a source checklist.

Computers and Genealogy
The ease of access to vast amounts of genealogy records and historical information is possible because of the use of computers, laptops, tablets, storage devices, the internet, emails, social media and software.

Births, Marriages, Deaths
Birth, Christening, Marriage, Death and Burial records are very important to genealogists because everyone who ever lived was born, many of them got married and most of the people who ever lived have already died.

Census Records
Most countries conduct a regular census, generally about once every ten years and the older censuses which have been released for public consumption can tell you a lot about your ancestors.

Other Records
The process of accumulating family information continues until eventually the trail dries up or it might take you to various little-known sources of documentation, perhaps relating to small religious orders or now outdated trades and professions.

Royals and Nobles
Your search might even take you on a journey where you find your ancestors recorded in the Doomsday Book, which commenced records in 1086 or back even further to Charlemagne and obscure medieval records.

Connecting the Sources
By the time you are this far into the course we have discussed a lot of different records that are useful in genealogy and in this section we explore ways that you can paint a clearer picture by using them all together.

Presenting your Family Tree
In this section your creativity will be used to present your family tree to others, whether that is only your immediate family or you would like to share the information you have found with even more people.

From Family Tree to Genealogy
Be warned! By the time you complete this course you will have caught the genealogy bug and you may never be able to stop.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

Who we are and where we’ve come from are such broad questions that, while they may be answered by a certain amount introspection, just as much can be answered outwardly by learning about our ancestry and the stories of those who came before us. This course is for anyone who is interested in learning more about their family and themselves or those have watched programmes, such as ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ and ‘Long Lost Family’ and wanted to find more out about their own family history. Who knows what you will discover...

5. Parapsychology: Investigate The Paranormal

The Parapsychology course deals with the investigation of paranormal and psychic phenomena in a structured approach to study anomalous phenomena that defy explanation.

This fascinating and thought-provoking course will teach you everything that you need to know about parapsychology and how to go about investigating the mysterious for yourself.

Parapsychology is the study of paranormal phenomena involving the human mind.

Para is from Greek and means ‘beside, closely related to, beyond’. The term parapsychology replaced psychical research to indicate the shift towards experimental methodology and academic discipline.

The phenomena studied includes:

  • Telepathy
  • Precognition
  • Clairvoyance
  • Mediumship
  • Psychokinesis
  • Near-death experiences
  • Reincarnation
  • ESP

The intention is to use a scientific and scholarly approach to study anomalous phenomena; anything that is not considered normal or defies explanation.

Parapsychology is often identified as a pseudoscience, partially because it has become associated with a variety of fringe topics (a misconception is that a parapsychologist is a psychic and many people use ‘parapsychologist’ as a synonym for a psychic entertainer).

The course begins with a general introduction into parapsychology, including its history and the attitude of science to these anomalous phenomena and some of the key figures involved. The syllabus then moves on to cover the types of phenomena that a parapsychologist might investigate, and how the scientific process can confirm or reject these phenomena.

Fraud and deception has a long history within parapsychology. In module four you will delve deeper into examples of these instances where those studying anomalous phenomena have been deceived – with particular reference to researcher fraud. The course finishes with a summary of the research results that appear to show overwhelming evidence in favour of paranormal phenomena existing and how you should research, assess and collect data when performing an investigation, as well as advice on forming your own investigation team and assessing the data found.

With so much intriguing content we’re sure that this course will leave you a lot more open minded about the realms of the paranormal, the psyche and the human mind.

Who would benefit from the course?

The primary purpose of this course is to provide all the information you need with reference to understanding and assessing the phenomena of parapsychology.

Computers and Genealogy
The ease of access to vast amounts of genealogy records and historical information is possible because of the use of computers, laptops, tablets, storage devices, the internet, emails, social media and software.

Births, Marriages, Deaths
Birth, Christening, Marriage, Death and Burial records are very important to genealogists because everyone who ever lived was born, many of them got married and most of the people who ever lived have already died.

Census Records
Most countries conduct a regular census, generally about once every ten years and the older censuses which have been released for public consumption can tell you a lot about your ancestors.

Other Records
The process of accumulating family information continues until eventually the trail dries up or it might take you to various little-known sources of documentation, perhaps relating to small religious orders or now outdated trades and professions.

Royals and Nobles
Your search might even take you on a journey where you find your ancestors recorded in the Doomsday Book, which commenced records in 1086 or back even further to Charlemagne and obscure medieval records.

Connecting the Sources
By the time you are this far into the course we have discussed a lot of different records that are useful in genealogy and in this section we explore ways that you can paint a clearer picture by using them all together.

Presenting your Family Tree
In this section your creativity will be used to present your family tree to others, whether that is only your immediate family or you would like to share the information you have found with even more people.

From Family Tree to Genealogy
Be warned! By the time you complete this course you will have caught the genealogy bug and you may never be able to stop.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

Who we are and where we’ve come from are such broad questions that, while they may be answered by a certain amount introspection, just as much can be answered outwardly by learning about our ancestry and the stories of those who came before us. This course is for anyone who is interested in learning more about their family and themselves or those have watched programmes, such as ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ and ‘Long Lost Family’ and wanted to find more out about their own family history. Who knows what you will discover...

5. Parapsychology: Investigate The Paranormal

The Parapsychology course deals with the investigation of paranormal and psychic phenomena in a structured approach to study anomalous phenomena that defy explanation.

This fascinating and thought-provoking course will teach you everything that you need to know about parapsychology and how to go about investigating the mysterious for yourself.

Parapsychology is the study of paranormal phenomena involving the human mind.

Para is from Greek and means ‘beside, closely related to, beyond’. The term parapsychology replaced psychical research to indicate the shift towards experimental methodology and academic discipline.

The phenomena studied includes:

  • Telepathy
  • Precognition
  • Clairvoyance
  • Mediumship
  • Psychokinesis
  • Near-death experiences
  • Reincarnation
  • ESP

The intention is to use a scientific and scholarly approach to study anomalous phenomena; anything that is not considered normal or defies explanation.

Parapsychology is often identified as a pseudoscience, partially because it has become associated with a variety of fringe topics (a misconception is that a parapsychologist is a psychic and many people use ‘parapsychologist’ as a synonym for a psychic entertainer).

The course begins with a general introduction into parapsychology, including its history and the attitude of science to these anomalous phenomena and some of the key figures involved. The syllabus then moves on to cover the types of phenomena that a parapsychologist might investigate, and how the scientific process can confirm or reject these phenomena.

Fraud and deception has a long history within parapsychology. In module four you will delve deeper into examples of these instances where those studying anomalous phenomena have been deceived – with particular reference to researcher fraud. The course finishes with a summary of the research results that appear to show overwhelming evidence in favour of paranormal phenomena existing and how you should research, assess and collect data when performing an investigation, as well as advice on forming your own investigation team and assessing the data found.

With so much intriguing content we’re sure that this course will leave you a lot more open minded about the realms of the paranormal, the psyche and the human mind.

Who would benefit from the course?

The primary purpose of this course is to provide all the information you need with reference to understanding and assessing the phenomena of parapsychology.
