PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION

Psychology is a growing subject. It is a developing science extending its

branches in different spheres. Today Psychology has its challenges from the

contemporary world of social sciences. Primary aim of Psychology is to understand

human nature the secondary aim is to serve society.

Psychology occupies a prominent place in the educational theory of today.

Although Psychology cannot formulate the aim of education, it tells us at once whether

an aim is in vain or whether it is possible to achieve. Psychology can tell how far the

aim is realistic and helps us to evaluate our results. It is of utmost value in the process

of achieving the aim i.e. the means of achievement.

Adam says that the task of the teacher is to influence learner, the study of

Psychology will enable the teacher to understand himself and understand the innate

endowment of the child, laws of his development, the evergrowing complexity of the

mind, the effect of environment and development of personality.
