Introduction
This week students will focus on the concepts of understanding the human being as their own personal processor. In addition, we will discuss Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis. Students are expected to read Chapters 2 and 6 in the Lecci & Magnavita text, complete the discussion questions, and complete the written assignment. The text will focus on the various concepts such as the person as a processor. These concepts will include, but are not limited to, a complete overview of Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis and the theories of Pinker, Mischel and Bandura. Students will also be reading the Schustack & Friedman text to explore the concept of explanatory style and the debate over what psychoanalysis is or should be.
