According to McClintock’s scholar-practitioner model, it expresses an ideal of professional excellence grounded in theory and research, informed by experiential knowledge, and motivated by personal values, political commitments, and ethical conduct (McClintock, 2004). As for Capella's scholar-practitioner learning model, learners acquire additional research skills, apply appropriate theory and research strategies, and share knowledge through scholarly publications and presentations (Capella University, 2003). When one looks deeper within both models, they get to view the many similarities that each hold to one another. Both reflect on how theory and research influence professionals to strive and succeed within their work.The aspects that McClintock’s model supports Capella’s range from acquiring and processing information to extracting and evaluating questions. This shows that as scholar- practitioners we are continuing to learn and be educated.
If I had to deal with a patient that believed a pseudoscience. I would explain to them that pseudoscience is a non-proven science, that makes claims that make them seem true but they don’t have any proven fact that can back these claims that are being made. It has not been studied in depth such as medical science. I would also tell them that they should consider that science is focused on helping people to acquire a better understanding of the world. They should also consider how challenges are dealt with, Look at the research, and how science is believed and proven by the experiments, research and the actual progress that science has made.
What exactly is psychology? While it may seem like a very basic question, it is one of the most common questions asked by students new to the study of psychology. During your first lecture of an introductory psychology class, your instructor might spend some time going around the room asking students to explain what they think psychology involves. During my first psychology class, one girl made a dramatic point of waving her fingers over another student's head and pretending to read his thoughts.
Youth form many marginalized communities in many cases face many encounters with the police men. This is mainly because they are usually associated with criminals in many instances. The conflict theory that relates to these marginalized youths in the community relates to illegal behavior as well. As a result, there are studies mainly done for the purpose of comparing the interactions with students who stay at school with those who reside in shelters. For instance, it is reported that more black students report being stopped by the law enforcers as opposed to their white counterparts. This hence leads to biased policing, (Hayle, 2016).
The purpose of this research paper is to inform readers on how William Edward Burghardt Du Bois, also known as W.E.B. Du Bois, impacted higher education. The beginning of the paper informs readers on the biography of Du Bois life and experience living in a time of race segregation. The
There are four main perspectives in psychology. These are known as; biological perspective, learning perspective, cognitive perspective, and sociocultural perspective. Each perspective aids in the understanding of human behavior. However, not one perspective can explain all of human behaviors. This is due to each perspective playing different roles in ones behavior. To fully understand human behaviors scientist must understand the four perspectives.
For the majority of my college career, my research focus has been on Implicit Social Cognition, specifically racism and sexism. The reason I plan to conduct research in this field of Psychology is because of the problematic impacts said biases have on the education system. For instance, minorities, especially women
The topic for this research proposal project is on community policing, and the factors that are involved in determining if relationships between law enforcement and citizens in these neighborhoods are strained. In order to be successful, community policing must be built on trust, as both civilians and law enforcement must work hand in hand to protect their communities. If there is a lack of trust, then these programs becomes broken, and can therefore lead to other violence and criminal acts.
The more I realize I don’t understand, the more I discover my desire to know more about psychology.
In this essay, “Higher Education through Discombobulation,” Betsy Chitwood argues that confusion is the key to higher education. Chitwood goes on to persuade us that confusion is a key to learning by using extensive research and personal experience.
Cognitive dissonance is the sense of mental disorganization or imbalance that may prompt a person to change when new information conflicts with previously organized thought patterns. The text states, “The incompatibly between your behavior and your new knowledge will make you feel uncomfortable” (381).
A way to encourage scientific enquiry in the classroom is through the use of practical investigations. In the context of thinking and working scientifically, investigations are activities where children can use their conceptual understanding and knowledge of science to find solutions to problems and questions (Skamp, 2012). Supported by Ward et al. (2006) who say that the term investigation is used for activities requiring children to make choices about what to change and measure. Instances where science lessons are practical and focus on the development skills linked with scientific enquiry and where emphasis was placed on the children carrying out investigations independently, were the most beneficial (Ofsted 2010). Osborne and Collins (2000) support this, saying how pupils enjoy opportunities for practical work and
This highlights the issue of post event information, and how easily it can sway an individual’s recollection of events. Gabbert et al (2004) further looked into this, in this study participants viewed a crime video and were later exposed to four pieces of misinformation about it; presented by a confederate or in a written narrative. Gabbert found that participants were less accurate in recall after they received misinformation, and misinformation given socially was significantly more misleading. Further studies for this misinformation effect comes from Loftus, Miller and Burns (1978), here participants (undergraduate students) watched a slide show of a car driving and then hitting a pedestrian. Some participants were then asked the leading question “how fast was the car travelling when it passed the yield sign?”, this was a misleading question; the original image was actually a stop sign. Later subjects were shown pairs of slides (one pair were the original slide with the stop sign, the second pair was a replacement slide containing a yield sign). Participants were then asked which pair they had previously seen; those who were asked about the yield sign were likely to pick the yield slide, when
Psychology is defined as “the scientific study of the mind and behavior” (Introduction to Psychology, 2015). Psychology provides an overview of biology and behavior, sensation and perception, learning, memory, intelligence, language, motivation, emotion, abnormal psychology, and therapy (PSY 102 Course Syllabus, 2018, pg 1). Because psychology allows for a better understanding of how the mind and body work, this knowledge can be beneficial for any field of study or career. The theoretical and practical understanding of the basics of psychology can help with decision-making, critical thinking, stress management, time management, better understanding of others, improving communication, and even achieving goals and objectives, all components that allow someone to be more successful throughout their life.
