Chapter 1 – Various Approaches to Psychology Discussion

The purpose of this discussion is for you to demonstrate your understanding of the material. Approach your response as though it is a mini essay with complete sentences, distinct paragraphs, and correct spelling and punctuation. Grammar and spelling matter. Online courses demand the same standard of academic communication and use of grammar as face-to-face courses.

Review the section in the text covering psychology’s intellectual roots and respond to the following prompts using a minimum of 300 words: In addition, you are expected to provide a supportive and/or reflective comment to the post of one classmate. In order to receive the maximum possible 10 points, you must accurately and thoroughly answer each part of the discussion prompt using at least 300 words (including the prompt in your response is not included in the word count) and comment on the post of one of your classmates.

  1. Why is it important to approach psychology from a sociocultural perspective? Give an example from something you have observed or experienced which demonstrates the huge impact that factors such as ethnicity, religion, occupation, or social class, have had on your or others’ mental processes and behavior.
  2. What thoughts do you have about why the biopsychosocial model has gained wide acceptance?

  1. The biggest reason that I believe we should approach psychology from a sociocultural perspective is that it influences a person the most. When people grow up, I think that their environment, and factors like the economic status they are in play a big role in how their beliefs are formed and how they act. People tend to be around other people from the same communities that they are in, religious, economic, social, etc. The people in those communities shape each other. Take religion, for example, and how it guides people from “right” and “wrong”. Every religion will give you a list of things you can or cannot do, like the 10 Commandments. When people argue that homosexuality is a sin, religion is their justification for that. On the contrary, people do good deeds, following whichever book they worship, hoping it will help them get into heaven. Since religion is typically taught to children from a very early age, it plays a big role in the formation of their values and beliefs, so people who are religious tend to have a different set of beliefs than someone who is not religious. From what I see, social classes have the biggest impact on one’s mental processes and behaviors. This is because you grow up and live in a different world. Someone in the upper class does not necessarily have to deal with struggles and are less empathetic. While people in the lower class, know what it is like to struggle on a day-to-day basis, and do not know what it is like to live comfortably. I have lived in places where there is a huge gap between different classes and I can see first hand how people act. In one place, I would see more crime, rundown areas, but I would see more down to earth people. A mile down the road I would see posh areas, less crime, but more stuck up people. Not to generalize entire groups of people, but that is just what I observed and typically see in my life
  2. Psychology can be interpreted from many different points of views if you can recognize more than one. I think that the biopsychological model has gained widespread acceptance because it takes all of the seven perspectives and intertwines them into one. If you examine one’s behaviors or actions through just one psychological perspective, you have a very narrow tunnel that you are looking through because a behavior can be influenced by many different things. For example, let’s say a kid is upset and crying. From a behavioral perspective, maybe the sun melted their ice cream so they are upset. From a cognitive perspective, maybe some bad news was broken to them so they were sad about it. From a biological perspective, maybe they are genetically more sensitive. From a sociocultural perspective, they are sad because their family got evicted because they were not able to afford their rent. With all the different perspectives, it is easy to only see things from one point of view and unconsciously ignore other possible reasons for a behavior. However, from the biopsychological model, psychology is not as narrow. Maybe more than one of those things I mentioned above contributed to the child being upset causing him or her to cry. But the different reasons would not be recognizable under one perspective. But under the biopsychological model, you can see things from all the different points of views, not just one. For example, last year when there was a terror attack in London, there was a Muslim woman wearing a hijab on her phone who was photographed. This was only seen from one perspective and she was reported as just ignoring the people in distress around her. When in reality, she was in distress and letting her family know she was okay after helping other people out to safety. This is an example of seeing only one perspective versus seeing all. I also think that it is more widely accepted because it is just easier to remember. Trying to remember the seven different perspectives can be difficult, as opposed to just remembering one model that has different factors at play.)
