  • Dora An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria by Sigmund Freud

    A 4 page critical analysis of the named work. Sigmund Freud’s (1856-1939) “Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria” (1963) is Freud’s account of the case of Ida Bauer, whose father brought to Freud seeking “cure” for her willful refusal to assist her father in securing the affections of his would-be mistress. Freud’s conclusions included diagnosis of hysteria and sexual repression; he firmly believed that Dora’s refusal to assist her father sprang from her own sexual desire for her own father.

  • Adaptation Research and Developmental Psychology

    This is an 8 page paper discussing research on adaptation in developmental psychology. Within the field of psychology, adaptation describes “the process of change in organisms or species to accommodate to a particular environment, enabling their survival”. From a developmental, biological and sociological level, there are considered to be two main types of adaptive behavior: closed programs which basically are transmitted from generation to generation and remain relatively unchanged; and, open genetic programs which are greatly influenced from environmental factors (Gale, 2001). In addition, adaptation can be discussed in terms of individuals or in terms of how groups adapt to new environments. Often individual adaptation is studied in regards to the biological or physiological components which are carried from generation to generation and largely these factors are inflexible and remain relatively unchanged. However, there are many studies which examine how social or environmental factors can also affect adaptive behavior and increase the survival in new situations. These studies examine the cultural, family and socioeconomic relationships in groups and individuals and indicate that while initially some individuals may not be flexible or adaptive to new environments, positive adaptation factors such as strong culture bonds, strong family relationships and resilience can increase adaptability in individuals suggesting that individuals are flexible and can be highly adaptive in new environments; factors which increase their chance of survival. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Interpersonal Liking and Psychology Research

    A 5 page paper analyzing the report of a psychological study. Nesler, Storr and Tedeschi (1993) conducted a study of female college students using the Interpersonal Judgment Scale (IJS) as the instrument by which the researchers rated a "liking" scale. The bottom-line conclusion of the researchers in "The interpersonal judgment scale: a measure of liking or respect?" is that the IJS may be limited in its ability to measure attraction. The purpose here is to review the article, but also to comment on general research methods. Design and validity are two primary points of focus. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Trio of Journal Articles Compared

    A 5 page comparison of psychological journal articles addressing extroversion and introversion. Three articles were selected, two from The Journal of Psychology and one from The Journal of Genetic Psychology. The first discussed is an investigation of the reliability of models of determining general personality traits. The second attempts to establish a link between introversion and depression; the third investigates the possibility of a statistical basis for personality traits as indicated by the signs of the zodiac. All of the studies seem to be designed as well as they could be in their areas of investigation, but all seem to conclude that apart from neurosis of either introversion or extroversion, the existence and the description within the individual remains subjective and its definition elusive.

  • Critiquing the Research Approach of Measuring Children's Anger

    A 13 page critique of the research conducted by A.J. Finch Jr. and Edward S. Eastman and published in the Journal of Psychology in 1983. Using a sample base of thirty-eight children (twenty-eight boys and ten girls) at the point of admission as patients at the Virginia Treatment Center (a short-term psychiatric hospital for children), the researchers delineate a significant relationship between the child’s own perception of their anger (as obtained through self reports) and reports of their behavior provided by peers at the time of admission.
