The Psychodynamic theory explains child abuse as a “parental dysfunction.” Followers of this theory such as B.F. Steele (1987) stated that ‘the abusive parents submit their children to traumatic experiences similar to those they had endured during childhood.” Therefore, child abuse is explained as a cycle due to the parent having experienced such behaviours from their parents as a child, hence now displays similar behaviours to their child as a parent.

For the reading four, we listen to the Radiolab, and it describes the connect between brain and body and how brain keep track of the body. I believe this is an interest topic because I have heard a lot people describes about this topic, brain and body communication. Also, I learned this lesson before from one of my friends, who is studying nursing program at SJSU. I did ask her how a body and brain work together. She explains that body receive information and send information back to brain to analyze. After brain finished analyze, brain will send an order back to body to tell what body need to do. For example, when a person got burned on finger, the skin receives the burned information and send it to brain to analyze. After the brain analyze the burned information, brain send signal to body at action, which is take the hand back and put in water or do something else that depend on brain knowledge. The
The brain is vital to a humans existence. It directs almost everything we do in our daily life. The brain controls our voluntary movements, regulates involuntary activities, stores our memories, allows us to feel emotion and gives each individual a unique personality. Dysfunction in the brain either caused by deformity in development or through a serious head injury can alter a person's behavior. We can see such evidence of behavioral change in the article "Phineas Gage" by Kendra Cherry. Gage attained severe brain injury, and even though he miraculously survived the accident, according to his friends he was a different man entirely.
Your mind has two components each with separate functions. There is the conscious mind, which is 12% of our mind, and the subconscious mind, which is the other 88%. The conscious mind is the one we readily identify with; it is our "doing state" that we use to perceive the world and make decisions, such as "I need to study chemistry tonight". The subconscious mind is responsible for storing our memory, habits, beliefs ("I always have difficulty understanding chemistry!"), personality, self-image. It also controls our bodily functions (notice you don't have to consciously think about doing these things).

The ability to open the minds of others, the minds of the world and to understand what occurs under the hood of a human being. Psychology opens doors and creates pathways vital to understanding the human mind. This understanding is very intriguing and has led me to pursue further in the study of why we do what we do. Recently I read Freakonomics, by Stephen J. Dubner & Steven Levitt, the book spoke about psychology, not just the concepts and theories, but also the direct application and correlation to actual occurrences in society. They spoke of how money affects the psychological side of people and even more how irrationality can stem in decisions regarding consumer and corporate economics.

In general, the everyday memory is classified into three types of categories that are, autobiographical memory, exceptional events and the constructive nature of memory (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1).

During the 1960’s and 1970’s psychological assessments were misused in order to justify and support segregation in South Africa which was called Apartheid (Van De Vijver & Rothmann, 2004).
