Critical Thinking Skills (8 Weeks) (CTS101)
Improve your critical thinking skills. Look into yourself and find out how your way of thinking (your values and prejudices) affects the way you make decisions. Learn to recognize false arguments and manipulative techniques used by individuals (or groups) to get you to do what they want you to do. Take control of the situation and develop your ability for creative problem solving. You need this skill to survive life's twists and turns!
