What is psychology   1 What is psychology 1 Presentation Transcript

  • Section 1: What is this Psychology you speak of?
    • Write the objective number on the top right of your notes.
    • Each objective is numbered and I’ll use the numbers to tell you what to study.
    Mr. Gifford is the best teacher and this will be on the test.
    • 1. Define Psychology and list why it has become a very popular science.
    • Scientific study of behavior and mental processes.
    Psychology relies upon a basis of scientific inquiry and the scientific method of experimentation.
    • Employment change. Employment of psychologists is expected to grow 15 percent from 2006 to 2016, faster than the average for all occupations. Employment will grow because of increased demand for psychological services in schools, hospitals, social service agencies, mental health centers, substance abuse treatment clinics, consulting firms, and private companies.
          • Bureau of labor statistics, 2008
    • 69 countries around the world have recognized Psychological Associations.
    • In 1985, China had 5 universities with psychology programs, by 2000 over 50.
    • Worldwide, there are 500,000 highly trained psychologists and the number increases.

  • Psychology's Beginnings

  • The first two reasons are because I’m rooted in Philosophy and Biology… both of which were proven sciences already. The third reason is because humans are naturally curious creatures.

    • The first psychology experiment rooted in the scientific method is credited to have taken place in Germany in 1879 and tested by Wilhelm Wundt.
    • The experiment was simple: measure how long it took for the mind to react to hearing a ball drop….not that impressive, but it started the science of psychology.
    • What is the major difference between the early ‘thinkers’ and Wundt?
    • He moved Psychology from questioning human behaviors to testing and experimenting with human behaviors.
    • Psychology has progressed from questioning someone’s reflex times to larger questions about human development.
    • 1. Are differences in personality hereditary or learned from the environment?
    • 2. Are gender differences biologically predisposed or socially constructed?
    • 3. How are humans alike biologically and how are they different based upon cultures?
    • NATURE VS. NURTURE
    • Nature = genetics Nurture = environment

    • Don’t expect Psychology to answer the ultimate “why” questions.
    • Ex. Why should I live?
    • Ex. Is there in life, any purpose which the inevitable death that awaits me does not undo and destroy?
    • Instead expect it to give you insights into why people think, feel and act as they do.
