- psychological essay (new)
I chose to interview a psychologist that focused in adolescent care and mental psychological disorders. In doing so, I wanted to interview someone in the field that had experience not only treating those in need, but also had experience diagnosing those that have caused harmful acts on innocent victims. I did this to so that it could hopefully prepare myself of not only the signs to look for, but also how to handle them when and if I’m approached with the situation. Being in such a vulnerable en...

Jody Ant Gardner’s Seven Intelligences
Howard Gardner of Harvard has identified seven distinct intelligences. According to this theory, "we are all able to know the world through language, logical-mathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves. Gardner\'s Theory of multiple intelligences states not only do human beings have several different ...
- My A HA Moments
My Aha Moments in a Nutshell

Each of these developmental stages involves a psychosocial crisis or developmental task (page 98)”. I would agree that we have “aha” moments as I like to call them. There are these times in my life however I don’t know that they exactly match Erikson’s Stages of Psychosocial Development.
The text explores socialization of t...

- The Oedipus Complex
“The Oedipus Complex” by Sigmund Freud
In Sigmund Freud’s “The Oedipus Complex,” he explains in great detail the cause for children becoming neurotics. His hypothesis focuses on children being in love with their opposite-sex parent and having extreme hatred for the same-sex parent. To support his argument, he uses two major works of literature, Oedipus Rex by Sophocles and Hamlet by William Shakespeare. Freud’s proof seems to be nothing other than coincidental and lacks any logical sense.
- Depression of College Students
I’ll never forget the day I met Betty Sue; she walked into my office and flashed me the fakest, halfway sewn together smile. I have seen it too many times before. I could tell, just by looking at her, that she is unhappy with life; she and every other person that walks into my office. So, I smiled my genuine smile to help her see the difference. In this scenario, as a psychologist, it was my turn to fully listen to why she came to see me for assistance. She obviously came for Existential therap...

• Relative Size:
If two objects are roughly the same size, the object that looks the largest will be judged as being the closest...
Aging is an inevitable part of life. From our first breath to our last breath we are constantly growing older. It is an inescapable process of life that knows no boundaries such as race or gender; it happens to everyone and everything on earth. It is through aging that we mature and become wise in the ways of life. The way that one chooses to live life, and the opportunities that they take, influence the quality of their life in its later years.
Take for example Mrs. Chapman; she is an eight...
