If your kids are planning on going on to secondary education, this course will help prepare them for some of the information they will encounter in college. Psychology is often a required course for students to take, and while it is most often not taught from a Christian viewpoint, this course points out that it is not psychology that is the problem, in and of itself. In fact, the author argues that Christians should familiarize themselves with psychology, know what is taught, and be prepared to know why they believe what they believe. It is true that students may be bombarded with lots of information and definitely from a different point of view than they are used to, but the best prepared students are the ones who are familiar with the different ideas out there and are prepared to defend their own beliefs. This course takes students through the basics of psychology from a Christian worldview. The material is serious and in depth, and your student will be well prepared for psychology courses at the college level upon completion of this course. The recently expanded textbook (was 164 pgs, now 256 pgs) covers psychology basics, psychology from a Christian worldview, psychology's history and worldview, the brain and nervous system, sensation and perception, motivation and emotion, learning and memory, human development, consciousness, thinking/language/intelligence, personality, abnormal psychology, treatment, social psychology and research methods. Each chapter culminates with a summary and review questions.

The softcover Teacher's Guide includes chapter summaries and outlines, answers (for chapter review, quiz and essay questions), discussion questions, activities, suggestions for further study and chapter quizzes. "Study Guide" chapter review pages are provided with and without answers, as are the quizzes. These pages are reproducible for student use. Assignments include further research, writing, reading and more. Please note that there is no separate workbook with the revised course; all other material not found in the text is now included in the Teacher's Guide.Arm your children with the knowledge they need to defend their faith and beliefs, while they succeed at the college level. ~ Megan

I have taught this course for a homeschool support group in the past. It is an excellent approach for preparing students to understand the basics of psychology through the filter of God's word. I will be teaching this course at a high school this time and am excited to see the students grow through this process.

There are not many psychology books at the high school level and even fewer with a Christian world view.

Can anyone comment on the difference between this curriculum and Vicki Tillman's "Introduction to Psychology from a Christian Perspective?" Would you recommend one over the other?

BEST ANSWER: We chose Psychology from a Christian Perspective. I have not seen Vicki Tillman’s complete curriculum, but critically researched these courses from a teaching and Biblical counseling perspective. Here are some things to consider:
-The authors education/training and current practice. I would encourage you to read some of their blog posts.
-Compare the Table of Contents. Some of the topics offered in Tillman’s left me wanting to know more about her teaching perspective; like, ‘How to Help a Friend in Crisis’.
-Compare the online samples; especially the homework review questions which seem to have a different focus. Dr. Rice’s Further Study questions also have students researching a wide variety of resources.
-I found cathyduffyreviews on Tillman’s insightful;

Both curriculums are self-guided. The level of difficulty seems variable for both. Ms. Tillman advertises her approach as light hearted but can be ½-1 cr. Overall, Dr. Rice’s class was a very thorough and professional ½ cr. It can be student-demanding if your student pursues all the requirements, but it’s not busy-work, easy to plan ahead, and can be really fun for a student who likes this topic. My student [who is not a bookworm] enjoyed it, prompted good discussions with me, and has followed up with a Biblical counseling course.
...Something that is really helpful when looking through these is to understand there are 3 possible counseling perspectives = secular psychology, Christians with a secular psychology background who counsel [typically with a spiritual element], and Biblical counseling which is Bible-based and can utilize positive contributions of psychology. From that perspective in reviewing content samples, blog posts and reviews, I would say Dr. Rice appears stronger in the latter with a clear Christian worldview focus throughout. After having a student use the curriculum and being able to go through it thoroughly, I didn’t find any major red-flags. I would recommend it!
The topics listed for this course in the product description make it seem more interesting than the Understanding Psychology course, but Megan's description of the Understanding Psychology course states that it is understandable and interesting. So which one would you recommend?

BEST ANSWER: I chose Understanding Psychology to use. I thought about using A Christian Perspective, but decided to use the other because the student would be going off to college, and would be exposed to topics from a non-Christian perspective. I wanted her to understand the concepts from within a Christian environment even though the topics would not necessarily be presented from that perspective. It was a good book, and I would recommend it.
Would this course prepare a student to take the college-by-exam CLEP?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2016
is this book consider a full credit?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Most would consider this course to be one-half credit (as high school psychology typically is).
