Transcript of Final Project!
Applied Psychology: This is a school of psychology that focuses on theories and principles that are related to solving real-world problems. Some branches of this field include: health psychology, educational psychology and positive psychology. This field of psychology helps to improve peoples' lives. Applied psychology is always helping us improve our everyday life, to help us live in a healthier and successful manner. From educational purposes to health related problems, applied psychology is continuously trying to figure out new ways to better our way of life. My sister has recently been diagnosed with ADHD and an educational psychologist, which is a branch of applied psychology, has helped her figure out what educational plan is well suited for her and teaches her ways to focus better.
Parenting Styles: The three parenting styles are authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive. Authoritarian parents are described as strict, imposing many rules and not nurturing. Authoritative parents are described as allowing discussion with kids, placing limits and nurturing. Permissive parents are described as inconsistent with few rules and very loving. I would describe the parenting style used by my parents as authoritative because they keep a balance between being not too strict nor being too care free. They allow open discussions and let me voice my opinions. Also they are very loving.
Distributed Practice: Distributed practice is a learning technique that states if information is practiced in regular short intervals then then retention of that information will be increased. I am a huge procrastinator and always end up cramming the information last minute. Learning about this concept and the disadvantages of cramming in this module, I will try my best to incorporate this technique while I'm learning.
Functional Fixedness: Functional fixedness is a concept that defines the inability to see an object besides it's typical purpose or function. I'm not the most creative person in the world and struggle with functional fixedness most of the time when problem solving. For example, when I was in elementary school, one of my teacher would present us random objects and tell us to make something out of it. They were things like blocks, paper clips, strings of threads, etc. Needless, to say, I wasn't a huge fan of that activity. I still struggle to look at objects beyond their typical purpose but I'm trying to over come this problem.
Major Depressive Disorder: This a mood disorder in which you experience feelings of worthlessness, lack of interest and lack of energy. This disorder is becoming more common nowadays, especially among teens like me. I know quite a few people from family and school who have experienced this. In fact, one of my close friends had this disorder. Learning about this more in depth gave me a better insight about the victims of his disorder
