PSY 490 Week 1 Individual Assignment The Diverse Nature of Psychology Paper

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you analyze the diverse nature of psychology as a discipline.

Address the following items as a part of your analysis:

Evaluate the influence of diversity on psychology’s major concepts.

By diversity, I mean how psychology as a field has many subdisciplines with "diverse" areas of inquiry, such as biopsychology and organizational psychology. We're not referring to any particular area which may focus on diversity issues such as multiculturalism.

Identify two examples of major concepts (or subdisciplines) and two examples of subtopics within psychology.

Examples of major concepts and their subtopics include the following:

1. Motivation: theory of emotion, and approach and avoidance

2. Behaviorism/Behavioral Psychology: aggression, systematic desensitization, and operant conditioning

3. Cognition/Cognitive Psychology: cognitive dissonance and false memories

How can the subdisciplines and subtopics you identified be applied to other disciplines and venues in contemporary society?

For example, you could explain how psychology could be used in education to help elementary school teachers keep children on task. Or, you could explain how psychology could be applied in marketing to improve a person's perception of a product?

Relate the concepts/subdisciplines and subtopics to your theoretical perspective.

Finally, discuss your psychological contribution to society in the areas of work, education, health, and leisure.

One peer-reviewed resource should be cited and referenced.

An introduction and conclusion should be included which each explicitly identify the key elements the paper covers.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
