Final Questions for Psyc 190 Bob Cooper – Spring 2010 Introduction for questions 1, 2, and 3. Contributions to psychology can be broadly grouped into three main categories (Omnia Gallia in tres partes divisa est): theoretical, basic research and knowledge, and applied understanding. For example, although Freud is not now held in high regard by many psychologists, no one can deny that he stimulated a great deal of theoretical development in psychology, his theory stimulated a great deal research (much of which did not support his theory), and his theory led to a variety applications. Among the concepts that championed that are still in use to day are the unconscious and defense mechanisms. 1. Consider the contributions of Social Learning Theory with respect to these categories (you may focus on Bandura’s version if you like). How has it influenced theoretical development in psychology? How has it influenced our basic research and understanding? How has it influenced applied psychology. Which, if any, of the original concepts are still used today. Fifty years from now what do you anticipate will still be seen as lasting contributions. 2. Consider the contributions of Festinger and the concept of cognitive dissonance with respect to these categories (you may focus on Bandura’s version if you like). How has it influenced theoretical development in psychology? How has it influenced our basic research and understanding? How has it influenced applied psychology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
