Some Misconceptions about Psychology Among Chinese Health Sciences Students in Hong Kong

David W. CHAN(陳維鄂)

Abstract

Misconceptions about psychology were assessed in 161 Chinese undergraduate health sciences students using 20 common beliefs of students in introductory psychology courses in North America. The results indicated that common misconceptions among Chinese students were related to memory and motivation, and were not a result of disinterest or apathy in acquiring psychological knowledge for application to health practice. Implications for the teaching of introductory psychology to students with a view for applied use of psychology were discussed.

摘要

本文以北美洲心理學導論課程學生的二十項普通心理學信念,去探討一百六十一名中國醫護學生對心理學的誤解。研究結果顯示普通誤解多與記憶及動機有關,而並不是因為學生缺乏興趣去掌握心理學知識來應用於醫護的範圍。本文亦討論通過教授心理學導論以達成學生應用心理學的含意。
