Good evening Class,
What are the three most important concepts you have learned in the class? How do you think these will be helpful to your future career goals?
This class has been a good one and I’m glad I took it! My future plan is to hopefully be a psychologist so every lesson we learned will be very beneficial to my future career but what I think maybe the most relevant are actually the weeks we studied psychoanalysis, the neo Freudians and humanism. These, of course, are all theories that have specific types of talk therapy based on them. The Neo Freudians, especially Jung is who’s there I probably have the most interest in. While most schools focus on CBT and exposure therapy I really like Jung’s method of analysis and there is a lot of evidence that supports it is a very effective type of therapy. There are still plenty of programs that emphasize his work and I hope I can be accepted to one that does. humanism has several aspects of therapy that go along with it. A humanist therapist will empathize a person’s ability to change their own life and use their free will to do so. There is a program in my home state I would love to go to that emphasizes this theory. CBT and exposure therapy are acceptable practices to humanist psychologists and they are arguably the most effective time-wise. Psychoanalysis has also still been proven to be effective and studying Freud’s work will always be important. While his form of psychoanalysis wouldn’t be my first to study I’m still very interested in it and hope to learn his method at least to a certain extent. Even if I do not become a psychologist I can certainly use many aspects of psychology in my current law enforcement job.
Its been a pleasure learning with you all, be safe!
Professor and Classmates,
Throughout the length of this course, we learn about a variety of different aspects and approaches to psychology. Each of these approaches to psychology was different in context whether it was a biological approach, cognitive approach, social approach, or a cognitive approach. Each approach offered its own way of describing their view of psychology in terms of personality, development, or behavior.
1. The impact that the history of psychology plays in the future of the field is the ideas, concepts, and approaches we are currently working on. As we take a look back from the start of psychology, the ideas have been built on top of one another. One approach is thought of and designed based on work and concepts done by others such a neo-Freudians. While approaches differ from one another in a few ways or in every way, they derive from one another. In todayâ€™s psychological approaches such as the biological approach and cognitive approach, we are already making amazing discoveries with new technology. In the future, the research individuals like Eric Kandel have made in terms of the biological and cognitive aspect of psychology lays the groundwork for future experiments, research studies, and possibly different approaches.
2. The three most important concepts I learned in this class were the biological approach, the cognitive approach, and the trait personality theory. The impact the biological and cognitive approach will have on my future career will be tremendous. I am looking to pursue my educational and career goals in the cognitive & behavioral neuroscience/psychology field of psychology. Understanding the foundations and where this approach stems from can assist in my future research and studies, with the ability to soundly grasp the vast concepts these fields hold. In trait personality theory, it helps me become a better leader in the workplace. This theory helps me understand Soldiers and future peers/subordinates better with my current and future career. It can help shape how I engage, relate, motivate, and teach these individuals based on their personality traits.
3. In my personal life, I believe this class has helped me become more understanding of personality, where it might stem, the approach I take with individual people, and how my actions can relate and influence others. I believe I can apply a number of concepts like the types of conditioning that people learn from to be a better leader, friend, and significant other. I also believe patience is something that is preached throughout this course, but subtly. Psychology takes time, it takes research, planning, and more importantly patience. Nothing in psychology has ever been immediate, and if we learned anything from Stanfordâ€™s Marshmallow test by Walter Mischel, is that patience always pays out in the long run.
History so far has had a significant influence on the way we view psychology. Erik Erikson changed the way the world views development. Mr. Erikson believed an individual will go through eight stages of development throughout the course of their life. This idea has significantly changed the we look at development. If Erik Erikson never developed this theory, psychology would have gone in a different direction. Sigmund Freud has made a huge impact on how we view an individualâ€™s personalities. Mr. Freud believed our personalities were constructed of three major elements. Ego, superego, and id. All of these personality categories had a specific function on how it influenced our behaviors and decisions we made in our lifetime. These are just two psychologists that had a significant impact on the way we perceive psychology. If we didnâ€™t have these ideas and influences, psychology wouldnâ€™t be as advanced as it is today.
The three most important concepts I have learned in this class are mind and body relationship, behaviorism, and psychoanalysis. The mind and body relationship are vital information for me because I was unaware of all the perceptions theorists had about the topic. I was able to discover my personal view on the topic of mind and body. I believe the mind and body have a strong relationship and one effects the other equally. Behaviorism was heavily influenced by John Watson. John Watsonâ€™s famous experiment showed some behaviors can be learned. The psychoanalysis was an idea Sigmund Freud influenced. The three personality categories he developed were ego, superego, and id. I believe all of these concepts will help me with my future career in law enforcement and if I eventually become a school counselor.
The tools and insights I have acquired from this course will help me positively influence my personal life in numerous ways. I will apply the knowledge I have learned and apply it to my relationship with my wife, my career, and apply the ideas to the way I raise my future children.
