Psychology will provide insights into the reasons for your own behavior and the behavior of others. By understanding first ourselves and then each other we can promote healthy communication and understanding; leading to the acceptance of our differences, making each of us stronger and stronger as a people.
I ask my student to please take one thing that I have taught them and to use it to help someone.
