3. Radical Behavior Perspective – a. Nothing is about the mind. If you can’t observe it than it’s not real. This includes thoughts and emotions. There is not such thing as the emotion of anger there is only aggression. As technology has increased you can now see anger. b. Give me ten years with people and I will make them whatever you want me to make them just by how I treat them. 4. They focus on how our learning affects what we think and how we feel. v. Cognitive behavior perspective – thoughts and feelings and behavior and how those things interact. It is more testable. Predominate school of thought. vi. Humanistic perspective – another way of looking at thoughts and behavior. Developed in the 60s and 70s. The idea is that all thoughts, feeling, and emotion are a product of each individual striving to be the best person they could be. Self-actualization – closing the gap between who you are and reaching deep inside and being the best person you can be.

    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.
