... Umajesty Allah 6/26/15 PSY 104 Child and Adolescent Development (Instructor: Suzanne Little) Week 5 Final Paper Name of center: Making a Difference! Human development covers a large selection of human behaviors that have been studied since the beginning of psychology in order to understand the full potential of humans and the way that they think, learn, and behave. Sigmund Freud has been predominantly influential in the study of human development and is the father of psychodynamics and the first to study human development and the inner working of the mind and since then child development has become a crucial aspect in virtually every field of psychology due to several influencing factors on childhood growth and experience (DeVitis, 2011). The stage theories are significant tools in understanding the psychology of human development. Each theorist offers logically uncomplicated justifications of human behavior. However, unanswered questions still arise as to how accurate a theory based on characterizing human behavior in general can be when applied to one particular individual. This paper will discuss and compare the evolutionary/Sociobiological, learning, and psychoanalytical theories and their similarities and differences in the overall development of the child (Savania, & all). Sigmund Freud who is often the most well-known person in the field of......

...Ann-Marie Cheney Final assignment EXP 105 Before taking this class if I someone asked me to explain learning to them I would have given them a generic dictionary answer. I would have said that learning is something that is ongoing and is acquired through different experiences, a lot of studying, and from being taught. Now that I have taken this class I know that there is so much more to the learning process. I know that there is reasoning to why some people learn in different ways it has to do with the four learning patterns; sequence, precision, technical reasoning, and confluence. The way that each of us learn is measured by the way we use these patterns, once we are aware of how we use each learning pattern we can truly grow as individuals and push ourselves to higher limits when we are in different situations. With the knowledge of how you instinctively learn you can reach a higher comprehension of learning by learning intentionally. I am defined as a dynamic learner, which means I use at least one of the patterns in first use level and the remaining of the patterns as needed or I avoid them.
