APPLYING PSYCHOLOGY TO MY LIFE

APPLYING PSYCHOLOGY TO MY LIFE
Due Sunday by midnight of Week 3.
Over the past three weeks, you have been exposed to many concepts, theories, and terms related to psychology. Now is the time to make a personal application of some of the terms you have studied. This personal application of concepts learned is one of the things that makes psychology such an interesting area of study. Not all courses of study have such a direct application to our own lives. You will select four (4) of the following terms or concepts. You will read and research at least three scholarly sources and then identify, discuss, and place each concept in the proper context. After you have identified each concept you will then explain ways each concept can be applied to your own life with examples. I hope you enjoy your research and the personal application.
Please select four of the following concepts or theories.
Social changes in life-span development
Memory
Positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement and punishment
Issues related to gender and sexuality
Motivation and emotion
Personality
Health psychology, stress and coping strategies
Psychological Disorders and other Mental Health Issues
