This 3-day interactive course is taught in small groups by psychologists conducting cutting-edge research and introduces research, design and analysis in psychology.
Science is not about building a body of known ‘facts’. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good.
Terry Pratchett, Author (1948 –2015)
