I was amazed by how much I learnt in this course it really challenged by preconceived opinions on certain topics and changed them positively. I found the first unit of this course was so interesting and I couldn’t stop going through it until it was finished. Overall I can’t imagine how much knowledge I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t done this course, it’s really changed how I will go forth perceiving and dealing with behaviour.
