Psych 101 - Introduction to Psychology - Lecture 1

  1. 1.  Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. The field is scientific in that psychologists approach their studies in an orderly and systematic way in order to obtain objective evidence. Psychologists study:  Overt or observable behaviour, as well as  Covert behaviour – private mental processes that cannot be directly observed or measured and must be inferred from overt behaviour. www.whatispsychology.biz
  2. 2.  The primary goals of psychology are to:  Decribe behaviour – what is the nature of this behaviour?  Understand and explain behaviour - why does it occur?  Predict behaviour– can we forecast when and under what circumstances it will occur?  Control behaviour - what factors influence this behaviour? www.whatispsychology.biz
  3. 3.  Several types of psychologists exist. These include: Cognitive psychologists:  study the ways humans perceive and understand the world around them. Physiological psychologists:  study the role of brain functions in behaviour. Developmental psychologists:  study how individuals grow and change throughout their lives. www.whatispsychology.biz
  4. 4.  Social psychologists:  study how people influence and are influenced by others. School psychologists:  test and evaluate students, analyze learning problems, and counsel teachers and parents. Industrial/Organizational psychologists:  work on a wide variety of issues in work settings. www.whatispsychology.biz
  5. 5.  Forensic psychologists:  work on behavioural issues in the legal, judicial and correctional systems. Health psychologists:  focus on ways to improve health by altering behaviour. Sports psychologists:  Study how psychological factors influence performance in sports, physical activity and exercise. www.whatispsychology.biz
  6. 6.  Most psychologists are involved in the areas of clinical and counseling psychology.  The primary focus of clinical psychologists is the diagnosis and treatment of mental and behavioural disorders.  There is some overlap between clinical and counseling psychology but the latter typically involves working with people who have less severe social, emotional and vocational problems. www.whatispsychology.biz
  7. 7.  Severalschools of thought have helped to shape the field of psychology into what it is today. These include:  Structuralism  Functionalism  Psychoanalysis  Behaviourism  Gestalt psychology  Humanistic psychology  Positive psychology www.whatispsychology.biz
  8. 8.  In 1879, Wilhelm Wundt established the first “psychological” laboratory in Germany. He is widely viewed as the founder of psychology. He attempted to uncover the structure of consciousness by breaking down mental processes into their most basic components. This was done through a process called introspection. Wundt‟s approach became known as structuralism. www.whatispsychology.biz
  9. 9. Wundts Laboratory in Leipzig, Germany www.whatispsychology.biz
  10. 10.  William James argued that consciousness cannot be broken down into elements. He was concerned with ongoing conscious experience and the functions of mental processes. His views gave rise to another branch of psychology - functionalism www.whatispsychology.biz
  11. 11.  Behaviourists held the view that only overt behaviour can be studied scientifically. They advocated the use of strict experimental procedures in psychology. Supported by B. F. Skinner, Ivan Pavlov and John B. Watson John B. Watson www.whatispsychology.biz
  12. 12.  Strict behaviourists believed that all behaviours are shaped by the environment.  Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up in and I’ll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select -- doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant- chief and, yes, even beggar-man and thief, regardless of his talents, penchants, tendencies, abilities, vocations, and race of his ancestors. --John Watson, Behaviorism, 1930 www.whatispsychology.biz
  13. 13.  Gestalt psychology – founded by Max Wertheimer Focused on studying mental processes and behaviours as „wholes‟ rather than trying to separate them into discrete functions or parts. Held the view that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” www.whatispsychology.biz
  14. 14.  While other theorists tried to explain varying aspects of conscious experience, Sigmund Freud argued for the role of the unconscious and other internal processes in human behaviour and mental disorders. His work formed the foundation of psychoanalytic theory www.whatispsychology.biz
  15. 15.  Humanistic psychologists argued that humans are not helplessly controlled by unconscious or environmental forces – we have free will, goals, aspirations, and other positive motives which should be studied. Influenced by Carl Rogers. www.whatispsychology.biz
  16. 16.  Founded by Martin Seligman Arose from the observation that psychologists generally focus on the negative side of human behaviour while largely neglecting the more positive aspects of human experience. Focused on discovering and promoting factors that allow individuals and communites to thrive. www.whatispsychology.biz
