The untrained individuals would look at psychopathology as being a study of mental disorders on the mere manifestation of different behaviors. However, we in the field of psychology would determine what is by going through the basics. It is commonly referred to as abnormal psychology which is the clear understanding of nature, certain treatments, and the many different causes. There are several ways in fact to where individuals in the field of psychology may use to explain psychology. For example, one psychologist may use descriptive psychopathology to which will strive to provide answers for symptoms or mental illness.
Address the additional questions listed in the research paper handout. Include your reactions to the findings and how they either “fit” with what you expected. If so, how? If not, why? Clearly defines key concepts and terms – NEED to use 5-10 course concepts in paper and 1 theory Conclusion (20 points) The ideal conclusion will: Briefly conclude the paper by restating the main findings as they specifically relate to your thesis/research question.
Myers (2010) provides an example as to how behavior is shaped by social influences making humans social creatures, “We speak and think in words we learned from others (Social psychology, p. 7). At times social environments or situations manipulate behaviors contrary to emotions, overpowering feelings and allowing the situation to guide behaviors. Another ideas of social psychology is that personal attitudes and depositions shape behavior, this describes the belief that inner attitudes and personalities
Antisocial Personality is a term used to describe individuals and whose behavior pattern brings them repeatedly into conflict with society. (Schmalleger,220) 3. Sublimation is the psychological process whereby one aspect of consciousness comes to be symbolically substituted for another. (Schmalleger,225) 4. Modeling Theory is a form of social learning theory that asserts that people learn how to act by observing others.
Having Fun With Operational Definitions Adapted from teachpsychscience.org Directions: Identify and operationally define the independent and dependent variables in each of the following research ideas. Research Idea #1: A social psychologist was interested in whether people are more likely to exhibit conformity when they are in situations that make them feel nervous and unsure of themselves. What is the independent variable? How would you define it operationally? What is the dependent variable?
Contrast Sigmund Freud’s view of human nature with the view of Abraham Maslow. With which, if either, view do you agree? 4. Altruism refers to behavior that helps others but does not appear to help the person performing the behavior. Describe an example of altruistic behavior, and state how a psychodynamic psychologist might explain the behavior.
The Belief component is what each of us as human beings chooses to believe or think about when it comes to the object of an attitude. The Emotional component is simply a personâ€™s feelings that they have towards the specific object of an attitude. The Action component is how a person tends to act or behave when it comes to dealing with the main object of each attitude. All three of these components of attitudes being Belief, Emotional, as well as Action are affected through persuasion, conformity, and biases in different but yet also similar ways. Persuasion is known as an attempt that is deliberately made to change beliefs or attitudes through arguments and information.
The Psychodynamic Perspective The school of psychodynamics focuses on the interplay of the mental forces. It is said that humans have can have unconscious motives that underlie their true intentions. It is also said that the foundations of what was discovered rests on the evidence that people could be aware of their subconscious motivations while processing the things that affect their conscious thoughts that are related to their feelings, behaviors and intentions. Scientific studies show that psychodynamic perspective can reveal as to why a person’s actions are brought on by thoughts and feelings that would cause a reaction or a response in different situations. This school of study ultimately depends on the methods of the case studies that are performed to provide the necessary information that will clearly show them the evidence based on motivations.
All three concepts ultimately involved influencing others to complete a task. Social psychology is the study of how the presence of one or more people, whether it is real or imagined, can affect a person’s feelings, thoughts and behaviours (Allport, 1985, cited in Nail, Macdonald & Levy, 2000). The concepts of compliance, conformity and obedience all fall in the social psychology category. The purpose of the following paper is to compare and contrast the three concepts, specifically how they are similar and also how they are different. Definitions of each of the concepts will be given, as well as an applied example for each.
