Isa Darby @ resourcd

I'm a full-time Psychology lecturer in the West Midlands, teaching the OCR syllabus.  I've been teaching Psychology since 2001.  I am also a part-time writer and have had poems plus a medieval fantasy novel published.  In addition to this, I sing part-time in a heavy metal band.  I'm married (3rd time lucky) and between us we have six children.  I'm always interested in any new resources.

Uploaded a file called ABC MODEL OF COGNITIVE THERAPY MIND MAP

This is a simple, colourful, mind map of the ABC Model that I put together for my students.  Good as a wall chart in your classroom.

Uploaded a file called GOLDENDISCS LIE DETECTION GAME

This is a simple version of the TV programme 'Goldenballs' that can be used to involve students in active attempts at lie detection.  It is a bit of fun that can lead to discussion about body language and inconsistencies in people's stories as predictors of lying.

Uploaded a file called Random name generator on PowerPoint

I use this to select students for Q&A spots or any other time that I need to select a student and want to give everyone an equal chance of being picked.  You can amend it by changing the names.  Run the PowerPoint and press 'S' to stop and start. If you have fewer students than me, delete some slides.  If, God forbid, you have more than me in a single class, copy and paste slides.

Uploaded a file called Ethical Issues Table

I use this for revision of ethical issues relating to the core studies. Students work in pairs, finding and discussing the ethical issues for each study and completing the table. I tend to use it on and off in different lessons, rather than all at once.
