Homeschool Psych: Preparing Christian Homeschool Students for Psych 101
Psychology is an extremely divisive topic for Christians today. Yet despite it being one of the most commonly-taken college courses, many homeschool students never study it before encountering it in the university setting. While they may be prepared to answer the questions and accusations of humanism, evolution, relativism and naturalism, psychology classes may be the hardest battlefield of all. This text was designed to introduce students to psychology's concepts, underlying worldview assumptions, and the Christian criticism of psychology, while still providing suggestions for Christians joining the contemporary psychological conversation.
Chapters integrate a Christian perspective into some of the most common topics addressed in psychology, including: psychology's history, the brain & nervous system, learning & memory, consciousness, personality, treatment, social psychology, research methods, and more. Chapters end with a summary and review questions.
Preparing Christian Homeschool Students for Psych 101 and the accompanying Student Workbook are all a busy homeschooling mom (or dad) need. Prepare students to recognize the worldview assumption underlying modern Psychology’s theories and schools-of-thought and introduce them to the study of God’s greatest creation – the human mind – from a distinctly Christian perspective. Since the first edition was published in 2008, thousands of homeschoool students have used Homeschool Psych to study psychology from a Christian perspective.
