...Assignment Week 8 Psychiatric Disorders, Diseases, and Drugs Christina Schwartz Schizophrenia disorder is a serious mental disorder that is easily misdiagnosed with other disorders that have similar symptoms. These symptoms usually occur around early adolescent ages and continue into adulthood. The symptoms of this disorder include hallucinations, delusions, goal directed behavior, and emotional expressions. (Andreasen, 1995) The symptoms can also be categorized into positive and negative symptoms. Positive symptoms are those that represent an excess or distortion of normal function, whereas negative symptoms are those that make reduce the ability to function normally. An example of a positive symptom would be not having the ability to react with the proper emotion to positive or negative events. An example of a negative symptom would be the loss of motivation, or being unable to experience pleasure. (Pinel, 2011) Statistics show that although only 1% of American’s are diagnosed with the disorder it is shown that that chances of inheriting the disorder rise in twins (identical) and even in an adopted child who is brought into a healthy family atmosphere shortly after birth. The belief according to (Pinel, 2011) is that some people inherit the potential for schizophrenia however; experiences may or may not activate it. Chlorpromazine is the first medication that was prescribed to those with schizophrenia disorder. The medication was actually found by complete...

...A few weeks back I tested out a theory on different ways to discipline my son, in the theory I conducted are different ways to discipline my son. Before conducting my research, I seek advice from friends and family members on different strategies on disciplining a child. After listening to their advices I got so many different advices, I was skeptical on witch one to use so, I decided to conduct a research of my own. The type of informal research method I used was Google it gave me a list of websites on how to discipline my child. After conducting my research I found many similarities methods with the methods a psychologist would suggest. Some of the method I used from my research was “no sudden moves” and “put out the fire.” The no sudden moves it’s method is to not charge at your children in the room or where ever they are playing in, after telling them they have a certain amount of time to play or do any activity they are doing before they have to put up everything. The put out the fire method is to wait for your child until they have calm down before talking to them on why they got upset. Even though the methods were quite similar the methods from the psychologist where more detailed on why you should and should not do certain things when using certain methods. If I were given another opportunity on how to discipline my son, I would of change many things on the methods I used on him. What I would of done differently, I would use a formal research on what methods are best......

...Testing a Theory PSY/201 Testing a Theory When I was 18 years old, I was fortunate enough to get a job as a guitar instructor. This was only the second job that I ever had, and I was excited about both the opportunity to share my knowledge with others and by the decent wages offered. While I had already been playing guitar for several years and had the technical ability, I had no experience in educating others. While I improved over time, I began my work as an instructor based on a rather naïve theory. Before I began instructing on my own, I shadowed the instructor I was replacing on his last day. This gave me a chance to meet the students and to watch how he conducted his classes. I noticed he generally used the same material for each student. The only real variation was how far along each individual student was in the material. From observing this, I decided to take the same approach. I developed the theory that since all my students were learning the same instrument, they could all be taught the same way. When I began teaching on my own, I quickly learned that this theory was false. From this theory, I formed the hypothesis that my students could be taught in the same manner and from the same material with little or no variation. I then began testing this hypothesis on my students. While I did not consider it in this way at the time, my initial teaching experience was an experiment of sorts. I inadvertently had formed a theory, a hypothesis, and......

...Samuel Smoot Social Psychology Paper PSY 201 3/1/2014 Sarah is going through exploration of her own path. She wants to do things that are not okay with her parents. Should she do these things and lie about what she is really doing, or is it easier to be honest? The problem with honesty is she will most likely not get what she wants out of it. It is the way that parent and child relationships mature. It ultimately helps with the separation process that is inevitable. Sarah is starting to make her own choices even if they are wrong. While mom and dad are trying to protect the little girl that is their daughter, like they always have. Sarah has many adult choices, but she is still only a young teenager. Sarah is just a teenager who is still attending school and getting good grades. To start with Sarah was dealing with social cognition toward her curfew. Sarah was experiencing partying for the first time. Sarah had obviously heard from other how fun it could be, but had never experienced it with her parent’s rules in place. For a fifteen year old these issues are the social norm. That still doesn’t make it any easier on her decision to go to the party. The friends and their persuasion made it even harder to say no too. She wanted to fit in, because they are new friends to her and she wants to fit in. She didn’t want to give them a chance to discriminate against her for not staying out to attend the party with them. Due to......

Psy 201 Week 5 Dqs

...Psy 201 DQ Wk 5 DQ1 My first response as a male was that the child was probably just being himself. When I fully comprehended the question I concluded that Sally and Bob probably have a rebellious son on their hands. They should calmly and firmly take control of the situation before Jimmy gets too much older and grows to be disrespectfully to his parents. Television could be one of the issues, so perhaps walking in the park would be an activity that would benefit the child. Exercise is good for a child and it also helps wear out the child which could take some energy out of the aggression. Sally and Bob observed. The next day after a good nights sleep, perhaps the child would be more agreeable to the situation. Television I would say has some of an affect on how the child behaves, but I have a son and sometimes he expresses anger but not aggressive behavior. DQ2 I think it is a combination of both nature and nurture that influences our behavior. Nature refers to the environmental factors of influence (siblings & family, schooling & peers, and any other external source of influence around them). Nurture refers to the hereditary factors which “are based on the genetic makeup of an individual that influences growth throughout life” (Laserwords, 2009), and therefore influential to the individuals behavior.   There are a lot of environmental factors that are going to influence a child’s behavior as he or she is growing up. Most of our traits of behavior have to do with......

Week 6 Psy 201 Library Article Summary

...Social Development in Adults – Library Article Summary PSY/201 – Foundations of Psychology October 16, 2011 Helen Tretiak-Carmichael Social Development in Adults – Summary of University Library Article The article chosen is entitled “Psychosocial Development From College Through Midlife: A 34-Year Sequential Study.” The article is relevant and creditable. The range of issues covered during the adult development phase of life and the additional study of Erikson’s theory the class has been studying over the last two weeks provides credence to the relevancy of the subject matter. This article would be an excellent reference for an assignment on the topic of Social Development of Adults. The study referenced in the article uses subjects found from the alumni of the University of Rochester in school from the 1960s through the 1980s whose contact information was obtained and solicited in a number of ways. The study spans a time of at least 35 years as well as a range of ages. The study focused on growth within “[t]he eight Eriksonian psychosocial issues” which it define as “…trust versus mistrust, autonomy versus shame and doubt, initiative versus guilt, industry versus inferiority, identity achievement versus identity diffusion, intimacy versus isolation, generativity versus stagnation, and ego integrity versus despair.” (Whitbourne, S., Sneed, J. R., & Sayer, A., (2009). The article provides psychological background on its subject......
