B.

: Exam 1 focuses on your conceptual understanding of the social learning and
cognitive theories from our readings, lectures, and class discussions up to 1/30. Please follow
basic APA guidelines: title page, 1-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font, and page
numbering. You do not have to double-space your answers, but at least give me some spacing
(e.g., I like 1.5). You do not have to provide an abstract or a header at the top of the page. You
are more than welcome to bold/italicize words/phrases, provide diagrams, etc. You do not have
to provide citations unless you use a direct quote or sources outside our primary readings. Direct
quotes should be kept to a minimum; it is best to paraphrase in your own words. If you do quote,
appropriately cite the reference, including page number.
Human Adaptive Functioning & Maladaptive Functioning
1) Discuss your understanding of human adaptive functioning within the context of the
cognitive-behavioral model. Be sure to include the factors discussed in the first section of
the course:
a. Observational learning
b. Self-efficacy
c. Reciprocal determinism
d. Rational/Irrational thinking
e. Internal dialogue
f. Appraisal
g. Coping
h. Automatic thoughts and core beliefs
Although not required, you can also integrate content from the suggested readings and other
outside (but related) sources. [Approximately 8-12 pages] [50 Points]
2) Discuss your understanding of human maladaptive functioning within the context of the
cognitive-behavioral model. The instructions for this question are exactly the same as
Question 1.
Note: Any factor discussed in one section should be discussed in the other
section. [Approximately 8-10 pages] [50 Points]
“Highly Suggested Tips”*
PSY 708 – Dr. V Highly Suggested Tips
A) (1) Adaptive functioning – describe the theory first, then discuss what the theory looks like
for an adaptively functioning individual (separate paragraphs),
(2) Maladaptive functioning –
briefly reintroduce the theory (not in deep detail like you did for adaptive functioning), then
discuss what the theory looks like for a maladaptively functioning individual.
*This suggestion is not random – it matches the format of your 790 oral exam paper.
B) Keep specific examples to a minimum. Using examples to explain a theory often does not
demonstrate full conceptual knowledge. Briefly using an example after a theory is fully
explained can sometimes work.
C) I really like headings and subheadings – it shows organization of thought.
D) Direct quotes should be kept to a minimum – too many quotes does not show full conceptual
understanding.
E) Remember, you are explaining your understanding of human adaptive and maladaptive
functioning, not a theoretical approach to therapy.

The design of the test must be based on empirical research and the research proposal must demonstrate understanding and application of psychometric principles (i.e., central to your proposal must be a description of how you will establish your test’s reliability and validity).

You will be writing a research proposal to develop a behavioural measure. The design of the test must be based on empirical research and the research proposal must demonstrate understanding and application of psychometric principles (i.e., central to your proposal must be a description of how you will establish your test’s reliability and validity). Full details will be provided in the Assignment Briefing. I have also attached a worked example from the start (powerpoint) and two example assignment (pdfs) that scored really well in the past. Topic 2 has my interest and it is also easier to score considering there is less support which also means more room for creativity and independent thinking. However, if it is not your thing, topic 3 is also fine with me. Thank you!

-why do you want to become a school psychologist?

I am currently applying to a School Psychology Program, the three bullet points below must be included in the statement: -Why have you chosen to study at Adelphi University? -What are your long-term professional goals? -Why do you want to become a school psychologist? (PLEASE KEEP THIS IS MIND: I am a transfer Masters student, I was originally at St. John’s University but had decided to transfer due to the lack of professionalism and because of many teachers not attending their own courses. I went to Adelphi as an undergraduate student and decided it was best that I return to my ‘roots’ and hopefully get accepted into the School Psychology Program they offer as a transfer.)

(4) what did you learn about coping with this type of problem specifically?

THIS CLASS IS PSYCHOLOGY(ADULTHOOD AND AGING)
After reading the text and watching the presentations, please pick a topic and a link below. Review the information in the article and integrate with material we have covered so far in this course. Then write a clear informative thorough 420 word essay on this topic. If we have not covered a topic, please use your textbook for more information. You do not need to have a reference list, but please include in-text citations for information obtained elsewhere.
THE 2 LECURES OUTLINE WILL BE ATTACHED BELOW
ASSIGNMENT
Stress & Coping (MUST include accurate information about primary & secondary appraisal!)
This week we learned about primary and secondary appraisal, and the ways that we can revise either of those, either with our own problem-solving abilities or assistance from others who help us with problem-solving. Make sure you are clear about primary and secondary appraisal processes; as well as problem-focsed and emotion-focused coping (You do not have to number your responses, but separate paragraphs are encouraged! AND, always write as if this were going to be published in the NY times!)
(1) Identify a challenge that you have faced in the last month (or two) and how you were able to revise your appraisal. Naturally post challenges that you are comfortable sharing with me and other students.
(2) Also, comment on whether you selected a problem-focused or emotion-focused approach as you worked through this issue. (We all use emotion -focused coping, so don’t be shy! And we sometimes use both – or switch between the two – just carefully consider and describe your process.)
(3) In retrospect, was your approach effective or is there another approach that may have worked better? Could you have switched strategies earlier? Would that have made a difference?
(4) What did you learn about coping with this type of problem specifically? What did you learn about coping more generally? Is there any big lesson here that you can take forward as a general approach to all of the random problems we all experience?
Note: applying these concepts to your own life facilitates learning, and facilitates coping effectiveness!
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS,
