Are you interested in broadening your understanding of human behaviour? Psychology is the fascinating science of the human mind - one of the most complicated computers on Earth. It is the source of all thoughts, emotions, habits and behaviour.
Modern Applied psychology is a fascinating field of study that focuses on putting practical psychology-based research into practice. Applied psychology focuses on the application of real-world results over abstract theories and laboratory-based experiments.
Applied psychologists use human behaviour as a clue to the functioning of the mind. Although we cannot see the mind directly, everything we do, think, feel and say is determined by how the mind works. Foundation psychology (pure research) is what most people are familiar with; however, it's not until this research translates into something useful that psychology becomes relevant.
Studying Applied Psychology will let you identify how those around you think, what kind of feelings they experience, how they act and communicate, and what motivates them. We all use psychology every day when interacting with others, yet most people don't realize the psychology behind their choices and behaviours.
This unparalleled training course will introduce you to the seven disciplines of human psychology and deepen your understanding of how to support and generate positive change in peoples lives.
Since the German clinician Wilhelm Wundt opened the first experimental psychology lab in 1879, a considerable amount of understanding has been gained about the human mind and its consequential behaviour.
In short, if you are a human being who hopes to live in a meaningful, congruent and fruitful way - or help others to do the same, studying modern applied psychology will be an invaluable investment of your time.
Throughout this Diploma in Applied Psychology, you will learn how to:
Recognize the motivations behind all patterns of human behaviour.
Learn from your past to make wiser and more calculated decisions.
Understand and solve problems that directly affect people's lives.
Improve your thinking and self-regulate your emotional responses.
Make more thoughtful decisions that align with your priorities.
Separate aspects of personality from the core human identity.
Make precise forecasts about how people reason and behave.
Develop strong interpersonal relationships and connections.
Interact with other people in a positive and influential way.
Reason like a philosopher and interpret life events precisely.
And much, much more.
Students of Modern Applied Psychology tend to work in a range of distinguished careers; that include education, coaching and medicine, social enterprises, politics, and entrepreneurship. Even if you don't plan to work with people, psychology is still conducive to helping you understand how to cooperate with other people is a significantly useful way.
Psychology endeavours to positively influence people towards making beneficial and enduring changes in their lives. This curriculum is devised to support you in laying a firm foundation, on which you can scale your continuing studies of Applied Psychology (and it's associated range of supportive disciplines; i.e. coaching, CBT, counselling. etc.)
All schools of conventional psychology will be reviewed throughout this training; including pre-psychology (philosophy), early psychology, psychoanalysis (Fredism), developmental psychology, behavioural psychology, cognitive psychology, humanistic psychology and an emerging outlook regarding social psychology (and influence).

Kain Ramsey has a way of breaking things down to help with understanding and also challenging us to expand our own understanding encouraging us to incorporate and apply them into our lives and practices.
Man, I really tried to like this course but I just can't. There is a LOT of fluff for me personally and my time is money. I quit at lesson 17. I'm sure I can find something better out there.
Infelizmente comprei o curso esperando encontrar aprofundamento nas bases da psicologia, e o que eu encontrei foi um homem cisgênero com pensamentos e falas explicitas de homofobia e transfobia usando dos alicerces da psicologia pra apoiar seus preconceitos!!
I've been wanting to do a Psychology course for a long time and this specific topic in what I've been looking for.
Ein sehr professioneller Kurs, in dem umfangreiche und tiefe Kenntnisse vermittelt werden. Der Dozent gibt immer wieder anschauliche Beispiele zur Theorie und spricht klar , so dass auch ich als nicht Englisch Muttersprachlerin dennoch alles leicht verstehen konnte. Ich bin von diesem Kurs begeistert und kann ihn nur empfehlen!
So far it’s an excellent course. Kain is very straightforward and gives me a lot or food for thought. I’m studying Psychology so this is a perfect fit for me. I’m learning a lot on my journey of self growth so I can help others as well.
Kain has attempted to create his own version of an already recognised important field of psychology. In this regard I don't think the content in this course matches the level of experience and knowledge required to be able to say with conviction and with necessary qualification the standards of learning matches or exceeds requirements for accredited and established learning. If I were to create my own type of psychology based off of a previously known field I would need more than a spot on Udemy as a teacher and a variety of knowledge and experience to say I had succeeded. Two people wouldn't do the job! Nor would 3 or perhaps even 30! A following on social media wouldn't make me legit! It is a process of constant evolution, scientific research and academic recognition, and this is not an overnight process. Therefore I'd be pretty much swimming with the sharks when comparing my material and my new field to those that have been established for decades perhaps even a century or more. Kain to me is much more like a motivational speaker. He takes bits of knowledge and personal experience and then melds them into a story that inspires others to do what makes them happy. In that way he's a very talented guy but in no way would I say he is an academic scholar in the field of psychology. Studying this course will not make the hard work of studying an established academic course and traversing a necessary academic pathway to learning and progression no longer needed. It will however sprinkle little gems of insight and also potentially motivate you to think differently, act differently and better yourself in your own personal life. When I think of it like this you don't need to be a scientist to motivate people. But, at the same time, you can't simply create a diploma course and then name it under a branch of applied psychology and believe truly you're teaching (or learning) a cirriculum on the same pages as recognised academic cirriculums. Kain is a coach, mentor, motivator, entertainer, public/private speaker. This in and of itself is more than enough to garner such a huge audience he himself has got but I feel that slapping suggestible and potentially misleading words like 'modern applied psychology' and 'diploma' and 'accredited' only takes people away from the value and meaning of this content and enstills in them a false sense of security and false knowledge. This is NOT a dig! Kain could very easily coach workforces, board of directors, schools and education establishments, communities etc. And there are many notable people who have built their life on such a career without really ever having needed to earn a PhD or get a degree in psychology. He could very easily do TEDtalks and have some amazing success because his words and his perspectives are so powerful. He's the sort of guy you want at work who can help you to fulfill your goals, or perhaps someone struggling in life in general who wants guidance. These are great traits to have. But... it's not a science. Kain is not a scientist. Achology is not a scientific establishment. Applied psychology IS a science on it's own. This is personal development systems and techniques; good 'ole fashioned positivity, problem solving, mind management etc mixed in with counselling skills, life coaching and basic introductory lectures on the history of psychology. It's not a field of it's own. And if you have encountered Kains other courses you'll find this material to be in other courses as well which makes all of Kains courses pretty much fall under feel good personal development training, NOT academic studies into social sciences. If you want to leave somewhere with a smile Kain is your man. If you want to find ways to challenge your beliefs, your goals, your life - Kain can help. If you want practical hands-on guidance and helpful insight - Kain can help. If you want a course which is grounded in an entire history of scientific and empirical study which can be verified and quality assured by some of the top brass of your countrys education establishments - Kain and his courses won't help. That isn't to say Kain is a fraud or his courses are crap, quite the opposite. There are boundaries in science for a reason. As much as we could discuss what is a science and what isn't until the cows comes home, what we do know now thanks to the evolution of our understanding and knowledge of what is quackery and what isn't (look at the era in which the church/religion governed reality over scientific fact) we can with a great degree of confidence place certain fields and certain materials on a spectrum in terms of their basis in scientific research and empirical credibility. We can say time and time again that we know certain things are more than conjecture, more than inspirational power lingo to motivate audiences, we can know the difference between an article on science in a newspaper and something we find in an established scientific journal. In this way, and especially if you want to get ahead in life and not confuse yourself too much, you have to respect this understanding and know what is useful personal development material you can get reading books, attending seminars, meeting new people, learning and growing - and what you learn and what gets attributed to you after you reach a particular level of academic experience and progression. Science - go to uni. Personal development/team-building/motivational training - buy Kains courses Cheers Kain! Keep up the great work! We need more people like you in our schools, workplaces, in our communities, perhaps even our friends and family networks. Probably one of the best personal development coaches on the internet today!
From what I have heard, yes this sounds like exactly what I was looking for. I am sure it is going to get a whole lot better.
Yes it is a good match for me, considering I have no pre-knowledge & what I hope to learn in the long run.
This was an intensive course, but easy to understand. I just needed a refresher course, but this was way above my expectations. Thank you!
I like this course because there are many quetions to enlight my thinking about some what I experience, and Mr. M is very humor and his teaching is very vivid and practical. Thanks Mr. M and Udemy give me this opportunity to rich my life in my home at this disease and virus period.
Yes absolutely. It's precisely the kind of distillation I've been hhoping for. Ideas related clearly and concisely and in the manner that reaches me. Good stuff, thanks Kane.
Very nice course and Kain is really good. The only problem is the quality of the Course's map pdf file. Its very low quality (pixelated) and it is really hard to read it. If the pdf's resolution gets better the rating would be 6/5. :)
Kain explains very vividly and in a calm yet motivating way. He tells a lot of stories, that helps me to "get things easyier". Some contents and stories have been told/teached at other courses too, but thats OK. There is no fix boundary between the disciplines. Learning through repetition. I'm from Austria, so English is not my native language, but I never had a problem understanding the videos. See you definitely again in one of your courses.
Many reinforcing and connecting ideas. The lecturer explained how he applies framework in his real life. I found it to be very helpful for my personal growth in understand myself and others. I would like to thank you the lecturer/community for creating an awesome course! Below are my recommendations for the applied psychology community. The Crucial Conversations book will enhance your ability to directly apply these psychology concepts in your relationships. Furthermore, I have one perspective that is different from the lecturer. I believe our personality (how our brain are wired naturally) plays a very important role in psychology. By understanding different personality types, you can become more effective in understanding the dominant styles that a particular group of people perceive information, etc.
