UPDATE: This General Psychology course has been updated and the new series will be available Spring 2020. The new series contains much of the same information, but any discussion of mental health issues will be based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) published by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2013.
This course is intended to provide an examination and application of major principles of psychology including: an introduction to scientific and research methods, biological foundations, sensation and perception, learning and conditioning, human development, motivation and emotion, thinking, memory and intelligence, personality theories, stress and coping, social psychology, psychological disorders and their treatment.
The material in this series related to mental health diagnoses is based on the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision which was published in 2000.
The podcasts presented in this series will include live class recordings of lecture presentations and additional pre-recorded segments that focus on frequently asked questions and concepts that often provide a challenge for many students. These recordings may also be supplemented by PDF files or handouts designed to further enhance the student’s understanding of the field of general psychology. These materials are intended to supplement the traditional classroom approach of my courses and to enhance the student’s learning experience.
Target audience should include current students and others who wish to know more about the topic areas. The materials will not be textbook specific so that they will be useful to others. For HACC students, the purpose is to allow them an opportunity to review or catch up on lectures/class periods that they may have missed or misunderstood. For other learners outside of HACC, the purpose is to supply another resource for their learning that is both entertaining and educational.
The course was originally recorded during the Spring Semester 2011 with some updates as necessary.
Please send any suggestions/feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you enjoy listening and thanks for exploring the world of psychology with me.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to facilitate student learning, this class does not follow the Chapters in order. The recordings have been organized based on how the material was presented in class.

Great podcast!! Thanks Dr. Bailey!!
Instructor was engaging, easy to listen to, showed awareness of where the mic was (no fading in or out), could hear instructor's enjoyment of subject and for teaching. i think the part one of development cuts off too early. mostly able to hear student comments or instructor will rephrase the comment.
Good at points but outdated
Good for a refresher. Much of the human sexuality seemed outdated. The tips for women to avoid rape were horrifyingly awful. Hope that gets updated soon.
Just like everyone says. The Podcasts are great and enjoyable. It's a great supplement (even replacement) for most psychology 101 courses.
