Join the co-author of the world’s bestselling psychology textbook in exploring the secrets of human psychology.

Understanding our thoughts and emotions is essential to living our best lives. From infancy through old age, psychology affects our relationships, achievements, and sense of overall well-being. In this compelling audio course, Professor Nathan DeWall equips you with powerful tools that can help you achieve self-knowledge.

Psychology is a science and uses the same methods as other sciences. But there is a big difference: many psychological topics are difficult to evaluate and measure. Some of our most valuable qualities—self-esteem, memory, emotion, thinking, personality—seem ineffable.

Ranked in the top 1% of most-cited researchers in psychology/psychiatry by the Institute for Scientific Information in 2017, Prof. DeWall is also an award-winning professor. Here, he offers you a backstage pass to many of the mind’s mysteries, including why some people are prone to depression, why some therapies work while others don’t, and why some romantic relationships succeed while others flop. By understanding psychology as a science, you will have a better understanding of yourself and the world around you.
