Week 1 discussions
Psychological Research (graded)
The text gives seven major perspectives in modern psychology (Study Organizer 1.1). These perspectives are based on observations of how people think, feel, and act. Select a perspective that you think best explains human behavior and evaluate it for strengths and weaknesses.
Biological Foundations (graded)
An on-going debate continues on the influence of nature and nurture on human behavior. If you had to argue that either genetics (nature) or environment (nurture) has the greater impact on human development, which would you pick, and why?
Week 2 discussions
We are exploring the nature of stress, its effect on human functioning, and techniques to minimize stress. What is the biggest source of stress you have in your life? What is the most effective technique you have used to handle it?
Sensation and Perception (graded)
Sensation and perception are two different processes. Does sensory stimulus shape our perceptions? Do our perceptions misinterpret our sensations? How does that happen?
Week 3 discussions
After you have read about the theories of learning, reflect on how you learned as a child? What methods did your parents use to teach you how to act? Was it through classical conditioning? What about operant conditioning and social learning theory? Which theory had the biggest impact? Why? Give an example and state how it has impacted the person you are today.
We all seem to want a good memory. (What are my co-workers names? Where did I leave my computer? What day was I supposed to submit that proposal to my boss?) might be typical memory issues. After reading about memory, what is your most valuable tip for the class on improving your ability to remember things?
Week 4 discussions
Physical and Cognitive Development (graded)
Human development is a process in which there are various milestones from conception to death all of which require mastery. In terms of an individual’s healthy physical functioning, is the period of prenatal developmental more critical than any other stage of development? If you answered yes, what makes it most critical? If you pick another stage, for example, adolescence, what makes that most critical?
On pages 264–265 in the textbook, you can find Erik Erikson’s eight stages of psychosocial development. Each of these stages comes with a corresponding psychosocial challenge. In stage 1, for example, the challenge is that of trust versus mistrust. While all of these challenges must be met and overcome, which one of the challenges do you think is the most difficult for an individual to successfully resolve? Please explain the reasons for your choice and supply supporting data for your opinion.
Week 5 discussions
Motivation and Emotion (graded)
From your reading you have seen that there are several theories of motivation. You may also sense that some of the theories may not specifically apply to you. Given that introduction, which theory of motivation is the best fit for describing your behavior?
Theories of personality are based on observations of how humans develop behavior patterns. Psychological testing assumes there are certain fixed aspects of human personality and those aspects can be identified through standardized measurements. As part of your application for a position, you may be administered one of these tests to determine if you are a good fit for the company. The Big Five personality trait assessment is in your Webliography. Take this assessment and comment on (1) its accuracy for you; and (2) which of those traits may change over time?

Week 6 discuccn
Psychological Disorders (graded)
Despite the best efforts of psychologists, psychiatrists, and medical researchers, psychological disorders appear to be as prevalent today as they ever were—if not more so. What might be the cause of this phenomenon? Inadequate genetic makeup? Inadequate parenting? Inadequate social structures? What is different in our culture today than in previous generations? Please provide support for your opinion.
At some point in your life you may think you need therapy. At some point in your life you may think a co-worker or a family member needs therapy. Should you find yourself in that situation, which type of therapy would you recommend for another person or yourself: psychoanalysis, cognitive, humanistic, group, behavioral, or biomedical (medication and/or surgery)? Why? (If you would recommend no treatment for yourself or a coworker, please explain your rationale for doing that.)
Week 7 discussions
States of Consciousness (graded)
How important is sleep to your overall functioning throughout the day? What are you doing to ensure that you get a good night’s sleep?
This section lists options that can be used to view responses.
Why is it that some people will blame others for their misfortunes yet excuse themselves of responsibility when they fail? Do you do that too? What can be done to avoid the fundamental attribution error and the self-serving bias?
