Free Psych

chimps "What do your dreams mean? Do men and women differ in the nature and intensity of their sexual desires? Can apes learn sign language?" Knowing the answers to these questions may or may not help you on the social work exam, but, if you're curious, here they are, part of a free Introduction to Psychology class from Prof. Paul Bloom at Yale University.  It's a big series of long lectures--more than most will have time for, but likely of value for those who do.

Social work-specific offerings are less plentiful, but they're no doubt coming.
