Do you believe Wollstonecraft vindicates the rights of woman? Why or why not?

 

Behaviorism promised to make psychology a science by insisting on observable, measurable events, by not allowing unseen, hypothetical constructs or personality traits to be used in the understanding of behavior. On the surface, this makes sense to many people. After all, we cannot see an id, ego, or superego, and to say that someone suffers from neurotic anxiety simply labels an observation that under certain circumstances this individual displays these behaviors.

 

Further, the behaviors are often positively or negatively reinforced, which strengthen the likelihood that they will show up again under similar circumstances in the future. To ascribe them to “defense mechanisms” or other unconscious motivations is at best pointless and at worst misleading. This is a two-part question:

 

1.      Based on the issues above, defend the behaviorist position or critique it from a psychoanalytic position. What, from your perspective, makes behaviorist assertions valid or invalid in this argument?

 

 

 

2.      Briefly discuss how the new school of thought of behaviorism contributed to the growth of psychology as a professional discipline. What historical events, situations, or circumstances contributed to the rise of behaviorism in the United States?

 

 

Validity: The Test Doth Purport Too Much, Methinks

Two pages minimum with two references

 

In your unit studies, you read about two approaches or models of validity—trinitarian and unitary. In some ways, these two models are competing views of gathering evidence for a test’s validity. In other ways, the two approaches have an overlap of elements.

 

For this discussion:

 Compare and contrast these two models in terms of how they conceptualize validity. Identify at least one advantage and disadvantage of each model. Decide which model appears to be the most valid for determining validity of a test. Explain your decision in terms of the implications for decision making about a test’s validity.

 

Be sure to include citations from Guion’s 1980 article, “On Trinitarian Doctrines of Validity,” and Messick’s 1995 article, “Validity of Psychological Assessment: Validation of Inferences From Persons’ Responses and Performances As Scientific Inquiry Into Score Meaning.”

 

Using a spreadsheet program such as Excel, students will create a list of the ethical systems studied thus far (Religious ethics, Ethical Egoism, Utilitarianism) and their major components.  For example, students might choose to list the schools of ethics in the left column, and then design columns at the top of the page to hold information like ‘origins’, ‘founder’, ‘view of morality’, ‘view of humanity’, ‘values’, ‘teachings’, ‘ethical approach to decisions’, and etc.  

In 1949, philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote the foundational, philosophical, feminist text, The Second Sex, in which she analyzes the roles of men and women, and determines that gender roles limit our opportunities to be free agents. These roles demote women to an inferior status and encourage women’s propensity toward self-sacrifice. This activity aligns with module outcomes 2 and 4.

Today, researchers are still undecided about just how much difference gender makes on ethical decisions and moral reasoning. Some scholars believe that any gender differences are simply a matter of socialization. Some feminists worry that delineating male and female ethics might encourage more gender stereotypes, and lead to the evaluation of one ethical approach as superior to the other.Discussion Question

Prepare for this discussion by completing your readings and viewings. Then respond to the following:Given your readings from the textbook or your own familiarity with these characters, to what extent do you think Bella Swan from Twilight or Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games are operating within a feminist ethical framework? Are they free agents?Regardless of your own particular gender, is there anything about the ethical decisions of these female characters, Katniss or Bella, that reflects your own perspective and values?Evaluation CriteriaInitial Discussion Post

Your initial post should be at least 250 words and must substantively integrate the assigned readings from the module with proper APA style formatting. You may use additional sources and materials as long as they are relevant to the discussion and cited properly.

Semantic Memory

 

As discussed in your readings, semantic memory is a database of general knowledge that enables individuals to successfully interact with the world around them. Semantic networks help individuals to establish relationships among words, which aids in word recognition. Based on your understanding of semantic memory and semantic networks, I would like for you to select a topic and create an example of a semantic network based on your topic.

During our forum in Week 5, we are discussing dreams. The meaning, origin, and analysis of dreams have fascinated psychologists since the inception of the field of psychology. Sigmund Freud, often referred to as the father of psychology, focused a great deal of his theoretical energy on trying to understand and interpret dreams.

Contemporary psychologists are beginning to recognize the interconnectivity of human physiology and psychology in a way not previously understood. This is in part because of new interest in holistic health and in part because of brain/body connections we are now able to see and understand for the first time due to enhanced technology. Yoga, mindfulness, healthy eating, meditation, holistic health – all of these practices are gaining more traction in mainstream society and among psychological circles as we recognize how the mind and body work together. In light of this growing area of interest in psychology, for this assignment you will maintain a sleep/dream journal during weeks 3 and 4, and complete an analysis and reflection on your experience in a summary reflection paper in week 5.   

Specifically, for this assignment you will: Keep a sleep/dream journal for at least 10 days throughout Weeks 3 and 4. In your journal make note of: any dreams you had any initial thoughts about the dream – events of the day that may relate, etc. your general sleep schedule (if you have a tracker such as fitbit, include data on your sleep patterns as well – wakefulness, restlessness, times asleep/awake per night, total sleep, etc.) your general eating habits by day your general exercise habits by day anything else of note in your psychological or physical health (stress, excitement, changes, etc.) You may use any format you wish to record the data (notepad, computer, hardcopy spreadsheet, etc.). Complete a 3-4 page reflection (not counting title or reference pages) in which you analyze the results of your sleep/dream journal. Consider how your psychological and physical health interacted. What patterns did you see? Discuss the impact that various factors such as fatigue, diet, stress and exercise had on your dreams and sleep patterns. Explain how this insight may impact your behaviors in the future to lead to better psychological and physical health. Utilize at least 2 academic resources (your text can be one of these) to support your analysis and discussion. Assignment Deadline: 11:55pm Eastern Time Sunday at the end of Week 5 of the course term. Submission should include: Title page in APA format Reflection minimum 3 pages, double spaced Reference page in APA format If desired (this is optional), a copy of the original data/journal
