Applying psychology to my life

Over the past three weeks you have been exposed to many concepts, theories and terms related to psychology. Now is the time to make personal application of some of the terms you have studied. This personal application of concepts learned is one of the things that makes psychology such an interesting area of study. Not all courses of study have such a direct application to our own lives. You will select four (4) of the following terms or concepts. You will read and research at least three scholarly sources and then identify, discuss and place each concept in proper context. After you have identified each concept you will then explain ways each concept can be applied to your own life with examples. I hope you enjoy your research and the personal application.

Please select four of the following concepts or theories.

  1. Social changes in life-span development
  2. Memory
  3. Positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement and punishment
  4. Issues related to gender and sexuality
  5. Motivation and emotion
  6. Personality
  7. Health psychology, stress and coping strategies
  8. Psychological Disorders and other Mental Health Issues
  9. Concepts of interpersonal relationships

You are required to write at least 750 words. This paper is worth 20% of your grade. Please use the APA format, cite and list at least three (3) sources. You are not required to include an abstract.

Assignment Requirements (Use as a checklist):

  • Correct font
  • Double-space paper
  • Minimum of 750 words. No more than 1,000 words
  • Minimum of three (3) cited sources
  • Use APA format and parenthetical citations right after cited material (See below)
  • Make sure your name is on your paper

What is a parenthetical citation right after the material you cited?

It is when you place the source in parenthesis ( ) right after the sentence you cited instead of waiting until the end of the paper. It helps the reader to know exactly what sentences and paragraphs are taken from particular sources.

Example: Place the author's name and the source's date of publication in parentheses immediately after the end of the cited material.

  • Psychology is defined as the science of behavior and mental processes (Coon, p. 12)
  • Families with no telephone service have difficulty accessing social services for which they are qualified (Benton Foundation, 1998, chap. 2, "Societal Priorities"). http://www.bedfordstmartins.com/online/cite6.html

Tips:

  • Use spell and grammar check
  • Make sure you indented paragraphs (5 spaces in)
  • Balance – Each paragraph should be similar in length

Citing Sources:

Parenthetical (In-Text) Citations

A parenthetical (in-text) citation is when you place the source in parenthesis ( ) right after the sentence you cited instead of waiting until the end of the paper. It helps the reader to know exactly what sentences and paragraphs are taken from particular sources.

Place the author's name and the source's date of publication in parentheses immediately after the end of the cited material. If it is a direct quote, include the page number as well. For example: "Psychology is defined as the science of behavior and mental processes" (Coon, 2012 p. 12). 

If you have paraphrased the information then you do not need to include the page number. For example: Psychology is a scientific field that specifically studies both mental processes and the associated behaviors (Coon et al., 2012).
