1- Discuss how the humanistic theorists (Rogers, Maslow, and Frankl) might respond to this question from a potential client: “I have been a patient of Dr. Steve Smith, who is a psychoanalyst. He feels that I need three years of therapy to explore my id-ego conflicts (He said I need to regress back to my childhood repressions, whatever that means). I am feeling somewhat depressed, and feel that no one likes me. I think I’m too much of a loner, although I value my privacy a lot. Can you help me, or should I stay with Dr. Smith?”
2- Carl Rogers assumed the position that people are innately good. Given your experience in world events, do you agree with Rogers’s position? Give three examples of why or why not. Justifying your responses with research directly from Rogers.
Is self-actualization a destination or journey? Discuss Maslow’s and Rogers’ positions on this statement.
3- Give two examples of classical conditioning you have witnessed. Identify the neutral stimulus, the unconditioned stimulus, the unconditioned response, the conditioned stimulus, and the conditioned response. Develop a plan on how you can classically condition a specific behavior.
Can you think of anything you do that is not motivated by either the hope of reinforcement or the avoidance of punishment?
