PSY 1080 - History and Systems of Psychology


The objective of this course is to give the student an overview of the history of modern psychology in three streams in order to place more accurately the existential-humanistic and transpersonal movements in their proper context. The student will be expected to gain proficiency in the major events and personalities associated with each of the three streams, which include: 1) experimental psychology in the universities (i.e., the history of psychophysics, behaviorism, and cognitive psychology); 2) clinical psychology as both an academic and applied field (i.e., the history of largely depth-psychology, with an emphasis on the histories of Freud, Jung, Adler, and Erikson); and 3) existential-humanistic and transpersonal psychology, exemplified by the life and work of Carl Rogers, Abraham Maslow, and Rollo May. Cross listed as EHP 1080 - History and Systems of Psychology . Prerequisite(s): PSY 6030  for Clinical Psychology students. 3 credit(s)
