As you read your articles, keep the following questions at hand; these will help you generate the information about each article.What were the topic/research questions being investigated?

 How was the study conducted (participants, materials, procedure, etc.)?

 What did the results reveal?

 How might these methodological considerations affect the research findings and the conclusions drawn from them?

 How does this article fit in with your paper? How did it influence your own ideas about your paper?

Based on your reading of the literature, what do you expect to find?

Include a hypothesis and a title page for your submission.

Then develop a summary of the scientific evidence that answers the question you selected.You may reference your textbook and other required materials from the course; however, these will not fulfill the resource requirement.Must document all sources in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.Must include a separate reference page, formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.You may use the reference section you developed in the Week Four assignment as the final page of the paper.

Explaining Phobia Paper

 

In this assignment, you will apply the principles of operational, classical, and observational learning. Behaviors are learned, and the following options are examples of three ways a person learns a behavior.

Sally is a 23-year-old woman who has a severe phobia of dogs. She has had this phobia since she had a negative experience with dogs when she was in the second grade. She now goes out of her way to avoid dogs and places that dogs may be. This causes her to experience anxiety when she meets someone new and is invited to an unfamiliar area.

 

Write a 1,500- to 1,750-word paper that uses behavioral and cognitive theory to analyze dog phobia.

 

Analyze the three potential ways Sally could have developed this phobia: operational (stimulus-response à consequence), classical (CS-UCS-UCR-CR), and observational.

 

Discuss how extinction and cognitive learning could help Sally recover from her phobia.

 

Address the following in your paper:

 

·         Describe Sally’s phobia using inference and research of the development of simple phobias, such as dog phobias.

·         Describe, in detail, how the phobia could be explained by the following:

 

o    Classical conditioning

o    Operant conditioning

o    Observational learning

 

·         Discuss how the process of extinction could be used to help Sally overcome her phobia.

·         Discuss how the tenets of cognitive theory could be applied to help Sally overcome her phobia.

Write a 1,500- to 1,750-word paper that uses behavioral and cognitive theory to analyze public speaking phobia.

An environmental organization would like to film a pro-recycling public service announcement and have brought you on as a consultant to help them better understand the principles of persuasion and how they should be applied in this PSA. As part of your presentation to the organization you will need to educate them on the principles of persuasion (using what has been learned through previous research) that will need to be applied to their PSA.

 

By Wednesday, January 20, 2016 you should create a PowerPoint presentation.

 

In the first 4 to 6 slides of your presentation you will need to:

 Summarize at least two previous research studies on persuasion. How were the principles of persuasion studied? Was the research valid? Why or why not? What was learned through these studies that can be applied to the creation of the above PSA?

 

In your next 6 to 10 slides you will incorporate all you have learned about the art of persuasion to create your own PSA PowerPoint presentation to present to this organization that they will use to guide the filming of their video.

 

In this presentation you will need to:

 Present a creative argument that will persuade the viewers of the need to recycle, which the video will be based on. Use at least two primary principles of persuasion within this presentation. In the final slide outline which two or more principles were used and why they were a good fit for this PSA.

 

Your total presentation should be a minimum of 10 to 16 slides (not including your title and reference slides). For your project you will need to be creative in the use of your graphics and fonts in addition to discussing and applying the principles of persuasion.  

 

For this assignment, please use your text book along with additional resources from the Argosy Library.
