This course aims to foster critical thinking regarding the self and human sexuality from a psychological perspective. Topics include, e.g., sexual development across the lifespan and sexual behavior patterns. We consider the history and diversity of human sexual relationships from mainstream and clinical perspectives, including both medical and psychological treatments in a Scandinavian and European context. Contemporary issues, such as the influence of the #metoo movement, online pornography, and social media platforms on our thinking and behavior regarding sexuality, are explored. You conduct a small research study in which you must incorporate psychological theory to consolidate learning.
This course includes a course-integrated Study Tour within Sweden! Read more about Study Tours.
