 Definition
The word psychology comes from Greek, roots meaning
the spirit, soul and mind.
Combination of two Greek letters psyche and logos make
the term psychology.
Psyche means soul, spirit, mind or consciousness and
logos stands for knowledge.

attitude of eagerness to skeptically
investigate competing ideas, with an
open- minded approach.
The course will encompass basic concepts of psychology

emotions, process of thinking, how do Our sense
organs work etc will be discussed.

abnormal behavior, the interventions used For

overview of main and popular Areas of psychology
will also be tackled.

DEFINITION OF PSYCHOLOGY
• “Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental
processes …. Human or Animal”
• Behavior is overt, manifest, obvious, and easy to study; the
mental processes that help carryout these behaviors are covert,
underlying, hidden, and not easy to study. Besides behavior, what
causes these behaviors to occur and the mental processes
involved in it is an important area of interest for a psychologist.
• Psychologists study animals’ behavior too; to better understand
and predict human behavior, the study of animal behavior
becomes essential at times, especially because some researches
cannot be carried out with humans due to safety reasons or
ethical issues.
Goals of Psychology
• To understand the nature and mechanisms of behavior and
mental processes
• To develop an understanding of the relationship between
behavior and mental processes
• To apply this understanding to real life situations and, on the
basis of this understanding, predict for the future
• To employ the scientific approach for developing this
understanding.
In short, the main goals of psychology are:
• a) Observation,
• b) Description,
• c) Understanding,
• d) Explanation,
• e) Prediction, and
• f) Control of human behavior and mental processes.
•Scientific Nature of Psychology
• Psychology is a science
• It employs the scientific method for gathering
knowledge and information. It uses scientific procedure
that is essential to be adopted in order to carry out
psychological research; otherwise the research will not
be considered authentic, reliable, or scientifically
valuable.
• “Scientific method is a systematic and organized
series of steps that scientists adopt for exploring
any phenomenon in order to obtain accurate and
consistent results. These steps involve observation,
description, control, and replication”.
• These are the main components of any science or
scientific discipline. The methods of how to gather,
process, and analyze information properly and accurately
are very important in psychology as well.
Scope of psychology
• After doing a degree course in psychology one may join a
variety of work settings, the most common being:
• Education/teaching
• Research
• Hospitals/clinics
• Recruiting/screening agencies
• Specialized professional settings e.g. armed forces, social
welfare etc.
Popular areas of psychology
• Clinical Psychology
• A branch of psychology concerned with the study, diagnosis, and
treatment of abnormal behavior. It is the oldest as well as the most
well known branch of psychology. Clinical psychologists are trained to
diagnose and treat problems ranging from the every day crises of life
such as grief due to the death of a loved one, to more extreme
conditions, such as a loss of touch with reality. Some clinical
psychologists also conduct research, investigating issues that range
from identifying the early signs of psychological disturbance, and
studying the relationship between how family members communicate
with one another, to theunderstanding of a wide variety of
psychological disorders.
• Industrial / Organizational Psychology
• A branch of psychology that studies the psychology in action at the
workplace, including productivity, job satisfaction, and decision-making.
• Health Psychology
• The branch of psychology that explores the relationship of
psychological factors and physical ailments or disease e.g. Health
psychologists are interested in how the long- term stress (a
psychological factor) can affect physical health. They are also
concerned with identifying ways of promoting behaviors related to good
health (such as exercise) or discouraging unhealthy behaviors (such as
smoking, drinking etc).
• Consumer Psychology
• A branch of psychology that studies and explains our buying
habits and our effects of advertising a buying behavior. Mainly
dealt with the likes and dislikes and preferences of people.
• Environmental Psychology
• A branch of psychology, that focuses upon the relationship
between people and their physical environment. It is one of the
newly emerging, and in-demand, areas of psychology.
Environmental psychologists have made significant progress in
understanding how our physical environment affects the way we
behave toward others, our emotions, and how much stress we
experience in a particular setting.
• Sport Psychology
• The branch of psychology, that studies the psychological variables
that have an impact upon the sportspersons’ performance; e.g.
how stress can affect sport performance, how morale can be
boosted, the role of self-concept and esteem, the impact of crowd
behavior etc.
• Forensic Psychology
• The branch of psychology that investigates legal issues and
psychological variables involved in criminal behavior ; e.g. what
factors determine criminal tendencies, how criminals be reformed,
deciding whatcriteria indicate that a person is legally insane, and
whether larger and smaller juries make fairer decisions.
