He attended high school at Haverstraw High. He continued to college at Cornell University from which he completed a double major in psychology and music. Brofenbrenner went to Harvard for his graudate degree in developmental psychology. He got his Ph.D in the same field. In his scholarly work, Brofenbrenner pursued three mutually reinforcing themes: Developing theory and corresponding research designs to advance the field of developmental psychology; laying out the implications and applications of developmental theory and research for policy and practice; and communicating the findings of developmental research to students, the general public, and to decision-makers

Lucy the Beginnings of Humankind is a novel about the impressive discovery of our ancestors by Donald Johanson and Maitland Edey. This discovery changed the way scientists thought about the origins of humankind. The discovery of Lucy proves that humans evolved from apes millions of years ago. It also provides further evidence that supports the fact that bipedalism preceded increase in brain size in human evolution. Finding 40% of the bones from Lucy was extremely impressive to scientists and especially to a paleoanthropologist because of the simple fact that these bones are over 3 million years old.
He happened onto psychology by chance when he was attending the University of British Columbia and needed an early class to complete his schedule. He continued his study of psychology at the University of Iowa where he went on to receive his master’s degree and his Ph.D. (p. 484 - 485). Bandura is a leading psychologist of the 21st Century who is recognized as the pioneer of the social cognition theory, which is developed from the assumption that we abstract information from others, and learn in this process. It rests a central role to cognitive, vicarious, self-regulatory and self-reflective processes in human adaptation and change. Self-efficacy Self-efficacy is central to Bandura's concept of social cognitive learning, emphasizing
A Helping Personality: My 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire Results Kitty A. Clark Tarleton State University Abstract On September 25, 2013, I completed the 5th Edition of the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire as a requirement for my first class, Foundations of Counseling and Psychology, in the Counseling Psychology Graduate department at Tarleton State University. Based on my experience before, during and immediately after completing the assessment, I developed my own personal general observations about the questionnaire. I observed a minimal amount of anxiety within myself just before taking the questionnaire, and I believe my anxiety was the result of wanting to choose “correct” responses. I also experienced a feeling of relief immediately after completing the questionnaire due to the number of items included in the assessment. In addition to my personal observations, I also identified areas for growth and areas of strength within my personality inclinations, and determined for myself my suitability for a career in the Counseling Profession.
Mary Salter Ainsworth’s thinking was very much influenced by Blatz’s security theories. After Ainsworth completed her master’s thesis in 1937, Blatz proposed that she should undertake her dissertation research within the framework of his security theory. She later developed her own theory of attachment; in which, both Blatz and Ainsworth collaborated their theories for the creation of the laboratory preschool at the University of Toronto. William E. Blatz (1895-1964) was born the ninth child of german immigrants; he grew up in Hamilton, Ontario in Canada. He obtained his bachelor's degree in 1914, his masters degree in 1916, and his medical degree in 1921 all from the University of Toronto.
Albert Bandura Albert was a successful psychologist who is the David Starr Jordan Professor Emeritus of Social Science in Psychology at Stanford University. Over almost six decades, he has been responsible for contributions to many fields of psychology, including social cognitive theory, therapy and personality psychology, and was also influential in the transition between behaviorism and cognitive psychology. He is known as the originator of social learning theory and the theory of self-efficacy, and is also responsible for the influential 1961 Bobo doll Experiment. Bandura has done a great deal of work on social learning throughout his career and is famous for his "Social Learning Theory" which he has recently renamed, "Social Cognitive Theory". Bandura is seen by many as a cognitive psychologist because of his focus on motivational factors and self-regulatory mechanisms that contribute to a person's behavior, rather than just environmental factors.
In this essay I will be looking at a number of studies which are widely considered to be “ classic psychological studies” and discussing if the reputation they have garnered is a deserved one. The first classic study I will discuss is Watson and Rayner’s study of behaviourism entitled “ Little Emotional Albert”. This study was the first to look at classic conditioning in humans, rather than animals and is considered to be pivotal in introducing behaviourism as a widely accepted area of study in psychology. Watson and Rayner carried out the experiment at John Hopkins University. The experiment was conceived after Watson observed children playing in a field.
He continued with pursuing his graduate work in psychology, and became entrenched in the ideology of Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development. His fascination with this resulted in Kohlberg making modifications and additions via “moral dilemmas” to create his own theory. The result was his doctoral dissertation (1958) the first rendition of his new stage theory. (W. Crain) It is at this point that we begin to see the differences in their theories regarding the stages. Piaget broke it down into two stages of cognitive development, whereby Kohlberg has identified six stages on three separate levels of development.
House- Tree- Person Test Lauren G. Letcher Evaluation & Assessment of the Individual Dr. Azimi April 25, 2006 John N. Buck (1906-1983): developed the House-Tree-Person (H-T-P) Projective Technique and other psychological inventories: he was instrumental in establishing clinical psychology in Virginia. The (H-T-P) Projective Techniques scoring system uses classifications levels to determine intelligence along with a qualitative interpretive analysis to evaluate the personality characteristics of the individual taking the test. Buck was a clinical psychologist who gained national recognition for his diverse contributions to the field. Buck served on the first Examining Board for Certification of Clinical Psychologists in Virginia (and the nation) and was later its chairman. His research was published in peer-reviewed journals and lectured at universities.
