The Parapsychology Diploma course deals with the investigation of paranormal and psychic phenomena in a structured approach to study anomalous phenomena that defy explanation.
This fascinating and thought-provoking course will teach you everything that you need to know about parapsychology and how to go about investigating the mysterious for yourself.
Parapsychology is the study of paranormal phenomena involving the human mind.
Para is from Greek and means ‘beside, closely related to, beyond’. The term parapsychology replaced psychical research to indicate the shift towards experimental methodology and academic discipline.
The phenomena studied includes:-
The intention is to use a scientific and scholarly approach to study anomalous phenomena; anything that is not considered normal or defies explanation.
Parapsychology is often identified as a pseudoscience, partially because it has become associated with a variety of fringe topics (a misconception is that a parapsychologist is a psychic and many people use ‘parapsychologist’ as a synonym for a psychic entertainer).
The course begins with a general introduction into parapsychology, including its history and the attitude of science to these anomalous phenomena and some of the key figures involved. The syllabus then moves on to cover the types of phenomena that a parapsychologist might investigate, and how the scientific process can confirm or reject these phenomena.
Fraud and deception has a long history within parapsychology. In module four you will delve deeper into examples of these instances where those studying anomalous phenomena have been deceived – with particular reference to researcher fraud. The course finishes with a summary of the research results that appear to show overwhelming evidence in favour of paranormal phenomena existing and how you should research, assess and collect data when performing an investigation, as well as advice on forming your own investigation team and assessing the data found.
With so much intriguing content we’re sure that this course will leave you a lot more open minded about the realms of the paranormal, the psyche and the human mind.
