Q: • Identify the major schools of thought in psychology and examine their major underlying assumptions.
A: Psychology is a vast field with a plenitude of topics to be included in this social science. In the literal sense, it means 'study of the mind'. [ Nevertheless there are several approaches and schools of thoughts of psychology that were established by early psychologists in accordance with their respective modes of research and study, the gist of which is discussed below: Biological
perspective: The psychological model that studies the role of biological functioning in the shaping of behavior pronounces the realm of the biological perspective or the biological school of thought. Psychodynamic perspective: The psychological model formed on the belief that behavior is shaped by inner forces over which the individual has little control and about which the individual has little awareness. Cognitive perspective: The psychological model based on the concept that behavior is directed by the way we know, understand and think about the world. Behavioural perspective: This perspective suggests that the external environment is the major determinant in shaping behavior. Humanistic perspective: In the light of this perspective, people have full control over their lives and they are solely responsible for shaping their thoughts, ideas, behavior and attitude. ]
