Psychology Question

Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology multi-part question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

Using what you have learned about various theorists in this module, incorporate either Darwin, Freud, or Halls perspective and apply it to your answers. As you answer the questions, clarify your position regarding the theorists position you are taking.

As you answer the questions, clarify your position regarding the theorists position you are taking in your answers. Keep in mind your answer should come from a developmental, ethical, and cultural perspective. Ethical implications should be drawn from the idea that while these theories are still relevant, they were devised during an era in which ethical standards were at a minimum.

Specifically, your paper should address the following:

  • Drawing from the theory you chose to frame your answer, are children driven by inborn motives and instincts, or are they products of their environments?
  • Examining the major assumptions within your chosen theory, are children actively involved in shaping their characters or are they passive creatures molded by parents, teachers, and other agents of society?
  • Examine how your chosen theoretical standpoint classifies children and adolescents that present with disorders.
