Since ancient times, people have been trying to find a way to understand and predict each other's behavior. They used all possible kinds of things, like stars, maps and even shapes of a skull! Modern psychology has found a way to do it dividing people into types according to their character traits.

But how can we understand whether a person just has a difficult character or it is a pathology? Clinical psychology provides an answer to this question. As part of the course, we will analyze the most modern classification of character types and will discover where to draw the line between "still ok" and "no longer ok."
The course includes not only the study of personality types and their pathological versions, but also an overview of the main mental disorders.

We will talk about what schizophrenia and depression are, how obsessive-compulsive disorder manifests itself, in what way and how badly thinking and other mental functions could be impaired.

Who created this course
Our actor

Why are lectures delivered by actors?

More often than not, specialists who are over the moon when writing their papers and doing their research do not feel enthusiastic about delivering their ideas and texts in front of a camera. This understanding influenced our decision to invite actors who feel comfortable and confident when being filmed. The expertise of our authors ensures high-quality content, whereas the professionalism of our actors buoys up its appeal to the audience.

Lecture reviews
I regret not having completed the course on cognitive psychology earlier. Everything is simple, clear, detailed. And you are also given practical recommendations: how to deal with anxiety, shame, self-esteem! And they actually work. I had self-esteem problems, but thanks to Nicholas I am recovering in small but steady steps!
Adam Mayson
The Evolution course is something else! Everything I wanted to know about psychology and its development in one place. And, what‘s most important, with all the details. The best thing is that there is not only theory but also practice in the course. I really enjoyed listening to the lecturers. Thank you! Now I want to watch all your courses.
Grace Milestone
When you feel like a loser, it is quite unexpected when somebody comes and tells you that everything can be fixed. And even though I have read a lot about it in self-help books or in the blogs of popular psychologists, for some reason, it never worked. On the opposite, it dragged me into even worse situations. In the course on clinical psychology, Jamie explains everything in a simple and comprehensible manner! And I have never read anything but popular literature on psychology. And practice, of course. Finally, I was able to understand that I am not a complete psycho and that I can and should change my character.
Jessica Widebrook
I have never even thought about the fact that my colleagues were avid manipulators and that in reality I am not lazy, that they impose that feeling of guilt on me. After watching the course on manipulations, I learned to withstand the influence of my colleagues and I finally feel confident. In my private life, things also got better. And I love the lecturer! Usually I‘m easily bored by studying. But everything was different here: perfect speech, full immersion in the material. You can feel that he knows what he is talking about! I will definitely watch it over again! :)
