P S B PS101-September 21, 2010 Read chapters 1-3 Humanistic existential psychology: -You are unique - You are spontaneous (Not pre-determined in any particular way) - Internal locus of control (Largely, I made it on my own) - External locus of control (Right place at the right time) - Existential (Focus on your unique, spontaneous, locus of internal control existence.) We are a society that runs away from confrontation of death. We must live fully in the moment. We should not put off what we should do today because tomorrow we may die. A moment is so full and precious. Kamu “life as a human being is absurd” - Those who assume parts of life are absurd continue to live on and that’s what makes them powerful. We are all human beings there should be no differences between us. We should all relate because we are all full functioning human beings. Structuralism what the brain is Functionalism What the mind is for Gustal The whole is greater than some of its parts The brain sees patterns (a perceptual thing, not a vision). It’s our brain’s attempt to make sense of things First step of healing is talking because it is an attempt to make sense of what happened. Bio-psycho-social Model- The state of your tissues affects how you think of yourself and that affects how you connect with other people. -The biology affects the psyche affects the social status
