Are you afraid of sharing your thoughts? Do you believe that they can tell about your actions? Would you like to have someone you could talk to with no shame of being judged? Well, there is a profession were people listen to others and at the same time, thousands of thoughts are being connected in their minds with a purpose of understanding and helping you. This profession is called psychology, the profession I chose to practice when I grow up and by the end of this speech I will prove to you that psychology is great, that my characteristics match the profession and that I have a plan to follow to get there.
Psychology plays a huge role in changing society and how individuals look at life. I believe this career path can make an impact on lives that are struggling daily, such as I did. With a psychologist 's help, I was able to cope with the negative aspects in my day, and be optimistic towards life, along with providing advice for others who may also be struggling. My ambition is to perform life defining acts with my words and advice, and as a psychologist, I believe this is possible through my ability to listen and be empathetic towards others. James Frey once stated, “A miracle is changing someone’s life.
I want the opportunity to provide support to people, help them gain independence and watch them grow more confident in their own ability. I want to be part of such a rewarding career. I feel that the subjects I have studied have provided me with a good foundation of skills and knowledge that I will use on a daily basis as Occupational therapist. In Biology I learned about the human body on a physical level. I found learning how the body works to be fascinating and I look forward to expanding my knowledge even more with this course.
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. Throughout this course I hope to gain a greater understanding of historical and theoretical perspectives of human behavior and development (PSY 102 Course Syllabus, 2018, pg 2).
Introduction During my first year, I was very much interested to learn about the routine of the protocol as well as the way in which different learning points I have been learning in Chiropractic Studies can fit effectively in it. I was also interested to observe the interaction between a practitioner and patient for learning, easy to understand communication style that I would like to use as a chiropractor. Further, I experienced different contrasting styles that I would like to compete with in my career. This paper is aimed to provide my learning experiences as a chiropractor. My Experiences The first experience that I would like to narrate from my observations is about a client who was familiar with Priya.
Throughout life there are going to be an abundance of physiological changes, rather modifiable or non-modifiable. In my pursuit to better society and alleviate the burden of these problems, I aspire to be a physical therapist (PT). Often people ask, how can I take care of myself? What must I do to keep my physiological integrity intact throughout my lifespan? A physical therapist is a professional that specializes in preventing injury and promoting proper body mechanics.
It also play an important role when finding not just effective but appropriate treatments for all our patients. Majoring and getting a degree in psychology means I would be able to work with like-minded people who share the passion and love as I do. This major will provide me with a head start on how to conduct effective research while I develop teamwork and networking skills that I know will later be essential in my career as a clinical
Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary scientific study on how does the mind works. Cognitive processes are essential to almost every daily activities, such as learning, talking, driving and counting. Learning Sciences are part of the cognitive science which emphasizes on human learning. As an educators, we have to understand how our students learn and therefore we can design instruction that makes the student learn effectively. Cognition and Learning are inseparable but they are not interchangeable (Greeno, 1996).
My chemistry professor also is very enthusiastic and passionate about her subject, so it has been interesting to get to experience this. I think as a student I have become more dedicated to my coursework as college classes require a certain degree of dedication that high school
I will take away with me a greater sense of self-awareness as well as a sense of believing in myself when I would have to carry many different cases. I feel all of these experiences will be invaluable in my future therapeutic work. Applying the two therapies (behavior training and cognitive behavior therapy) in both an adolescent and a child helped me to feel more confident that I would be able to work at the level of a qualified child and adolescent psychologist after my master studies. Ultimately this internship has allowed me to develop my understanding of myself as a psychologist. I feel I now have a better idea of what life will be like as a qualified child and adolescent psychologist and this internship has helped to prepare me for what is to
The International Summer Camps are very enlightening because they have allowed me to not only be healthy and take part in physical activity; but to embrace my culture, assist youth in acknowledging the importance of education, take part in team oriented workshops, and listen to key speakers that overcame great adversity. I have learned about the importance of assisting others and placing a grin on another person’s face, which is my primary motive for becoming a family practitioner. I have a desire to major in biology, minor in public health, and declare pre-med and I will continue to place forth my utmost effort as I embark on my
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
Another step I took to improve my social confidence was by attending study sessions with fellow classmates where I met additional people. As I became acquainted with my fellow classmates, I felt more secure with myself. I even took the lead on group projects which turned out to be a rewarding experience. I learned that I needed to come out of my shell in order to make Bentonville my new home. Ultimately, I gained even more confidence in myself and ended up having a successful year, both academically and socially.
I have had many different outstanding educational experiences in my past, like AP and Honors classes, clubs and volunteering in my community. My educational experiences have taught me to challenge myself and become a part of different organizations related to serving the community, which will prepare me to be a successful member for the East Carolina University
In my sophomore year I was involved in two great programs. The first is “Newcomers Hope Club”, where we help provide new students with the tools they need to brighten their future, not only in school, but in life as well. In summary, we provide answers to all of their questions and concerns, and if we ever do not have a sure answer, we take the time to find it for them. We also provide them with outings where they can meet new people and connect with their peers, for example, we organized an outing to the movies to see The Fifth Wave. The second program is “Leadership Symposium” where we strive to inspire and motivate students with positive attitudes and good messages.
