Researching Psychology. A message from Ms Vance:

“YIS has JSTOR, which you can browse by subject, as well as basic and advanced searches of course. Here’s a link to the Psychology section of JSTOR, which you can search within exclusively.  You’ve got access at school by IP address, but to use it at home, you have to create a personal account while you’re at school first.

EbscoHost – Science Reference Center database also has psychology resources, although they are likely easier to access if you look at the subject terms SRC uses before you start searching. Working with databases, as you know, can be frustrating when encountering them for more or less the first time. I would be DELIGHTED to come into your classes and train kids how to use them. 🙂

Same goes for History, economics and geography. They’ve been exposed to these databases as part of their PP but subject specific training on how to use them on a DP level would be very helpful for them.”

DISORDERS CAUSES, TREATMENTS AND STIGMA

DISORDERS – Causes, treatments and stigma

Now that you have a good understanding of a disorder, its prevalence and its symptoms, it is time to look at stigma and treatment.

 

  • What has surprised you in your research or in the posters you have looked at
  • What are some misconceptions that people have about mental disorders?
  • Can mental disorders be treated? How?
  • What are some misconceptions that people have about treating mental disorders?

  • For what purpose did the “amateur diagnosticians” label Mr Trump a narcissist?
  • What is the purpose of the  letter to the editor?
  • What does it say about people’s perception of mental illness?
  • What does it say about stigma?

 

Stigma – Breaking the stigma and shame of mental illness

You were all asked to create an ATL portfolio where you would do reflections on your work as we progressed. Can you please update these.

10 – 1

10 – 4

Your coastal study was a massive piece of work covering many ATLs and all criteria. Please make a comment on this padlet.  Add your name to start a column – Add reflections and thoughts about usefulness and use of the  TSC and usefulness of focusing on specific ATLs. Be honest and state whether you used it more than usual, when you used it how effectively etc. Did you make an effort? do you think it will help improve your grades if you continue to use the TSC as a guide and focus on certain ATLs?

Sustainability in the home

Statement of Inquiry:

In order to create a more sustainable community, we must be innovators.”

Working towards sustainability

How you could save energy in your home?  It has to have a practical application
