Person-Centered Theory Liberty University Online PSYC 371-B05 Abstract I will be discussing the Person-Centered Theory first introduced by Carl Rogers in 1941 as “non-directive counseling” (Corey, 2013). A brief history of the life of Carl Rogers and his accomplishments will be given and how the theory started and how it has developed over the years. Person-Centered Therapy is used and applied to treat a vast amount of problems. It may be used in one on one counseling sessions, schools, group, family, work and social institutions. I will highlight some of the most significant problem areas that this therapy is used for plus discuss the strengths and weaknesses of this theory.
A point about the dual- task method will also be mentioned as it is a research method of vital importance to the model itself. The model will be briefly outlined with its inner components main criticisms introduced along with an overall evaluation. The Working memory model first comprised of three elements. The central element named the Central Executive was introduced as the main control/ processing system of the two slave systems named the Phonological Loop and Visuo-Spatial Sketchpad. The Central Executive is thought of as being a limited capacity processing system which can process information from the visual and auditory senses (Eysenck, 2006).
This essay looks at the influences, beliefs and work of Mies van der Rohe, from 1906 to 1930, and asks how and why he made the transition form traditionalism to modernism? Mies van der Rohe’s first commission, Riehl House, was a success and, the critic, Anton Jaumann and commented that it was so faultless that one would never guess that it was a young architect’s first independent commission. Even in this first independent commission Mies, through his integration of house and garden, reveals a theme which appears in his later modernist designs. Mies followed developments in garden design and was aware of Hermann
IN this same article he states how he is a ethnographer who uses Gilbert Ryle's idea of thick description. He uses Ryles idea of “winx vs twitches” to explain how its in ethnographers job to not only state the facts but also to interpret these ideas into meanings of structure in a culture. He states how his ideas are linked to that of Max Weber who believes that humans create “webs of significance” and that these webs create meaning. Clifford Geertz explains how he believes culture is semiotic in that it is a public act people use to express themselves using symbols that have prescribed cultural meaning. In “deep play:notes on balinese cockfighting” Geertz explains how he became fluent in the language and gained trust with the people once he ran away from the cops when they came to end a fight.
I will do this by talking about the history of the test, relative research and findings, and the future of the test. I. Purpose and History of the SAT After World Word 1 a Princeton University psychologist by the name of Carl Brigham thought of the idea of creating an aptitude test after partaking in the creation of the Army IQ test, now known as the ASVAB. The acronym SAT stands for Scholastic Aptitude Test and was first purposed as a standardized way of measuring mental ability. The first SAT was given in June 1926 and administered by the College Board who still runs the test today.
Citron’s paper will be referred as paper one from now on in this comparison essay. Paper one collects and combines the different hypothesis on second language learning. These hypothesizes helps us understand the difficulties and positive effects of second language learning. Citron talks about ethno-lingual relativity, a perspective which is not only limited to one’s own cultural and linguistic view, but also opened to other people’s cultural and linguistic patterns. One hypothesis in Paper one (Whorf 1967) suggests that a language reflects a cultural pattern of their speaker and the one who is able to recognize this pattern has an advantage to learn a new language.
What influence does language have on the way a person processes information? And in what sense does language cause people's minds to work differently from culture to culture.on the way a person processes information? And in what sense does language cause people's minds to work differently from culture to culture. In this paper I will attempt to point out some facts based on my knowledge as a bilingual, bi-cultural person, and on what I have learned in my studies of linguistics. There was a time in one of my classes when I was teaching the colours when a student asked me: "How do you say purple and orange in Saulteaux (=native Canadian people of Manitoba)?
Gimbutas was able to read and translate the archaeological reports from Eastern Europe, which opened the American to new ideas on archeology. She remained at Harvard for thirteen years where she also became a lecturer in the Department of Anthropology. In 1955 Marija Gimbutas was made a Fellow of Harvard’s Peabody Museum. 1956 brought an International conference at Philadelphia, and it was here that Marija Gimbutas introduced her “Kurgan Hypothesis,” which combined archaeological study of the distinctive “Kurgan” burial mounds with linguistics to unravel some problems in the study of the Proto-Indo-Europeans; namely, to account for their origin and to trace their migrations into Europe. The word “Kurgan” is a Russian word from Turkic describing the kind of graves and grave-barrows built by the people of this culture.
McGregor’s Theory X and Y Sumitra Kendall CJ503 Organizational Behavior Professor Sherri Homer October 5, 2013 Douglas McGregor was a psychologist first and decided in his career to teach at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) where he was a professor of management. His experience there led him to create the “McGregor theory X and Y” its goal was to represent his assumptions and views on human behavior and nature and that they are relevant to management. Originally, theory x and y was introduced in the novel he wrote entitled “The human side of enterprise” (1960). As a result, it became a massive influence on the management profession and still does to this date. McGregor’s ideas suggest that there should be two approaches towards the management of people and that there are two different fundamental properties, which highlight a person’s behavior in a working environment and organizational life.
Throughout this paper we will further explore some of the differences between these two systems of psychology. Structuralism was introduced in the United States by E. B. Titchener who studied under Wilhelm Wundt. Titchener suggested that his approach was that of Wundt, however, what he was teaching was very different and the term structuralism can only be linked to Titchener’s teachings. Titchener was interested in the basic elements of the conscious experience and how those elements are organized (Lahey, 2004). He believed psychology’s main objective was to explore the conscious experience by studying each component part in an effort to discover its structure.
