Abraham Maslow Essay

Improved Essays
This assignment looks at Managers, leaders, Motivation, and communication. Abraham Maslow was one of the founders of Humanistic Psychology, he also was famous for Hierarchy of needs (Saul McLeod, 2007). Maslow felt that Freud’s Psychoanalytic theory and Skinner’s behavioral theory were too focused on the negative or pathological aspect and I agree (Saul McLeod, 2007). Maslow looks at the needs of each individual which provided the determination to become successful (Saul McLeod, 2007). Humanistic psychology is a perspective that pinpoints the individual and how they deal with stressful situations such as free will, self-efficacy, and self-actualization (Saul McLeod, 2007). Nevertheless, Maslow outlook on the focus of motivation is very relevant …show more content…
I have seen and learn so many things and for some reason, I use it all. People say if you don’t use it you lose it and that is definitely the truth. The brain is like a muscle if you don’t use that muscle on the regular than it begins to weaken and loses it firmness. I believe in order to be able to use all the things that you have learned you would have to be in a situation that requires you to use every single lesson that you have been taught. I feel that most of the stuff that we learn in school from Pre-school to college we will never use. I have always looked at school as being a big guidebook that can show you the steps on how to handle a certain situation. You may revert back to your lesson but books cannot teach you how to handle life. Most of the things that I have learned is from life experience. When you are applying for a job they want you to have experience in the field that you applying to not just knowledge of the field. Nevertheless in order to apply the things that you have learned throughout your life you first have to have the experience to use the

    It is true that students have to make that connection themselves often times, but it is impossible if there is no connection to make. If I am going to spend so much time and put so much effort into school, I should be learning things that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. I should have classes that will help me to broaden my mind and think in new ways. I want my grades to reflect on the connections that I am making, not the amount of information that I can temporarily cram into my head before a test. Schools seem to only want students to do well on tests to reflect well on the school district, but they don 't seem to care as much about the students as…

    But attending school wasn’t an option as we grew, throughout our childhood we’re always taught that education is the key to success without the parents having knowledge of the school system. As we grow older the phrase “you need to go to school” was enforced. Since a majority of our parents didn’t make it higher than elementary, they don’t…

    Moral Reasoning Theory

    They aim at developing a new theory of moral reasoning with a close reference to permissible situations, the theory of emotions, and the account of intuitions. A close reference to the previous moral reasoning approaches helps the researchers to establish the psychological gaps in those theories. Therefore, the new theory of moral reason is comprehensive because it fills gaps in the previous theories. In all the previous theories, it appears that emotions are the guiding force in moral reasoning (Monica, Sangeet, & Johnson, 2008). Emotions help in coordinating many goals and plans despite the current constraints on a person’s intellectual…

    I walked into pedagogy with so much frustration with the amount of reading from previous courses and definitely not looking forward to the amount of reading I was about do. However, reflecting back I can now see the importance of all the previous and present courses’ readings. In addition to that I will say no amount studying or reading can provide me with the knowledge I’ve learned in field. I’ve read many strategies on what can and should be used in a classroom but one thing the reading doesn’t cover is how effective or useful a strategy is in your classroom. One strategy that I’ve seen used the most is the use of learning stations.…

    Going into this case study, I was fully aware that my role was to be the consultant and not the one who implements the interventions. After discussing the consultation model in further detail with my BCBA, Sarah it became clear to me that this is something that I have to be okay with (not implementing the interventions). I have a difficult time when I take on a role and I am not successful all the time. I learned this after my first year or two of teaching – that at times I would not ‘reach every child’, every child is not going to master every skill that I teach them, and that each child is going to respond differently to my instruction and behavior management. I remember at the beginning of my freshman year of St. Joe’s in my Schools in Society class, I was placed at an elementary school in North Philadelphia.…

    I think that my experiences don 't stand out from the crowd I tend to be laid back and know to never take a moment for granted. Most of my friends have left for college and we have all started our own thing. School is the most important thing right now and I find that I am learning new things that has changed my perception on life and how I learn. I think one thing that I have really learned how to do is be there for other people. By learning and some experience, I can perceive how they are feeling and how to help them in a certain…

    Grabe and Grabe (2007) explained the importance of letting students do the work when they stated, “schools seldom allow students to do “works of the mind” (Original projects or investigations that are largely the responsibility of the learner)” (p. 338). Because I have been working this semester with a dysfunctional PLC who use multiple choice unit tests that require only level one thinking on Bloom’s Taxonomy, I have been hyper-aware of the type of work we ask students to do. Our readings, too, have influenced me to consider as prime importance for student learning the type of work, and therefore, thinking we ask students to do. I was stuck on this project, unable to come up with an idea for about a week. A light bulb moment occurred for…

    Growing up in a very traditional town with traditional schools and teachers, I was always expected to read the textbook, take notes, then take a test, but this never worked. I have lived with a learning disability all of my academic life, so the traditional way doesn’t always work for me. Reading is one of the most challenging activities for me because the letters move around and the words don’t make sense, leaving me confused and frustrated. I have found that when I have the ability to be creative with my learning and express my knowledge in a verbal or visual way, I am so much more successful. Although school may be more challenging for me because I have difficulty retaining information from a lecture, I am still able to show my knowledge through creative…

    Existential Theory

    Unit 4: Theoretical Framework and Application 1-The Case of Margarita Part Existential theory is based on a philosophical approach to psychotherapy as opposed to a method. The perspective of this approach is humanistic and “ focuses on exploring themes such as mortality, meaning, freedom, responsibility, anxiety, and aloneness as these relate to a person’s current struggle” (Corey, p. 139, 2013). Existential therapy is based on the notion that as humans we are free to make decisions and because of this we are responsible for the consequences associated with those choices. The counselor strives to understand the clients worldview, becoming self aware and assisting them in understanding it, changing it, and accepting responsibility for it.…

    Perennialism and Essentialism philosophy demonstrate the submissive side of students where learning is just completely left to the teachers telling students exactly what to think. I strongly believe that you can tell somebody all day long that something is bad for them, but unless they see it for themselves, they won’t truly be able to understand. I don’t believe philosophies like Perennalism or Essentialism should be accepted in a learning system. Nor do I believe that it should be completely up to students to teach themselves either. Young children need someone to look up to and also someone that will teach them guidance.…
