Psychology Portal    
 
Welcome to the online portal for Psychology! This web site was conceptualized, designed and developed by Saskatchewan Learning to provide web-based resources to support the new curriculum.

Psychology 20: Social Psychology deals with how we act and interact in a social world. It is a study in human thoughts, feelings and behaviours, how we influence other people and how they in turn influence us. Social psychology deals with matters of the heart, soul and mind. It is an opportunity to reflect upon ourselves, who we are, why we do what we do, and what kind of person we want to become. Resources included in the portal support the following:

Psychology 30: Human Development considers human development across the lifespan from conception to death. Using the stage approach, we look at how humans develop physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. We address the influence of the various "systems of support" as described by Urie Bronfenbrenner (1979) at each stage of development. Resources included in the portal support the following:
