Part II: What is Psychology Not?
Without doing any reading or research in advance (this is not a
test of what you can find out—there will be plenty of time for
doing that in the remaining course weeks) reflect on your current
understanding and knowledge of the following: What is psychology
Ask three acquaintances (friends, family, co-workers) what they
think of when they hear the word “psychologist.” What do they think
psychologists do? What is (are) their answer source(s)? Ask them if
they can name a famous psychologist. What opinions do they think
the general public holds about people with mental illness? How do
they see psychologists represented in the media? Make a mental note
about whether they seem to be sharing negative or positive
impressions in answering your questions.
Post a summary of their answers in your initial
post(Note: Although it is unlikely that anyone in our
class would recognize names, out of personal courtesy you should
not mention any identifying information and instead use “my friend”
or “my relative” or “my co-worker” in your post when referencing
persons you asked the above questions).
