Course Overview

Material in this course is intended to introduce psychology as it applies to personal adjustment throughout life. We will look at the dynamics of adjustment as it refers to the psychological processes people use in adapting to day to day living, challenges and change. This course and the text are designed to facilitate the pursuit of additional information on adjustment-related topics. The course also encourages you to take charge of your own life and promotes the development of active coping. We begin by exploring adjustment as it relates to self-realization, personality, stress and coping skills in daily life. You will have a chance to identify the processes involved in modifying behavior and discuss possible application to your life. We will investigate the interpersonal realm as it relates to self-concept, self-perception, social thinking and social influence, interpersonal communication in relationships, friendship, love, and intimacy. This is followed by developmental transitions, exploring gender and behavior; personality, physical, cognitive and role changes through adolescence, adulthood, and the process of aging. During the section on work and career development, you will have the opportunity to identify the elements contributing to college success and make personal application of materials for career and life-planning. Finally, we will explore the connection between psychology and physical health. You will be exposed to fascinating information on illnesses related to stress, drug-related issues, psychological disorders, elements of psychotherapy, types of therapies, and therapeutic experience.

Readings

You are expected to complete the reading assignments for each week prior to entering the discussions and completing the weekly quizzes. Reading assignments are posted in the Course Schedule section of this syllabus and in the Content area of the course.

Discussions

Each week there will be two discussion topics: Questions and Observation. All postings must be original and intelligible. Your grade is dependent on the completion and quality of your work, including timelines. Please see the grading rubric for more detailed grading criteria.

Each week I will list three questions. You are required to answer all three questions. Each answer must be at least a complete paragraph (100 words) in length. Your original postings should reflect your comprehension of the readings and mastery of the material presented. Points for postings are based on how well you have answered the question(s), your depth of analysis, and how well your answer(s) reflects broad research and understanding of the material.

In addition to your original answers, you are required to respond to at least two of your classmates’ answers. Each response must be at least a complete paragraph (100 words) in length. In your responses to your classmates, you might:
• Provide additional information based upon your readings or research on the subject;
• Debate what another student has stated; or
• Provide additional examples to support or refute their position.

Do not use comments such as "good posting." These types of comments are referred to as "Atta-boys." Your reply comments should reflect that you have read and understand the readings. You may comment on as many other postings as you would like, but two are required. Responding to others is an important part of the discussion assignment and is essential for receiving full credit.

Observation

Complete the worksheets in the Personal Explorations Workbook at the back of your textbook related to the reading assignment and describe at least one situation you have experienced in your own life that demonstrates these characteristics. Your posting must be a minimum of 100 words in length. Your original observation posting is due by Sunday each week.

Do you think most people view abnormal behavior as quantitatively or qualitatively different from normal behavior?

Why do you think insurance companies limit mental health care when even very small physical ailments are covered? What might be the justification for limiting care for psychological disorders? What are some potential problems with this approach?

Step 1: For each theme, check those items that describe you.
Step 2: Total the items checked for each theme/category. Identify the top 3 categories/themes that create the most accurate picture of you. What are your top 3 categories/themes?
Step 3: How accurately do you believe your (3) top themes describe your personality and interests?

1. Do you think sex is strictly a biological need, or do you believe that psychological factors play a more important role?
2. There seems to be an inconsistency between many people’s tendency to avoid talking about sex and the prevalence of sexual activity portrayed in the media (e.g., films, television, books). Why do you think it seems easier for us to read about and watch sex than it is to talk about it?
3. Having a low level of sexual desire is labeled as a disorder, hypoactive sexual desire. However, it is normal to expect that the level of sexual desire will vary from person to person and throughout one’s lifetime. At what point does low sexual desire become something that is “wrong” and in need of treatment? What factors should be taken into consideration?
