Understanding the theoretical foundations, influential theorists, and demarcation of the three major movements of psychology is essential to having a fundamental
knowledge of the discipline. 1Psychoanalysis;2 behaviorism; and3 humanistic, transpersonal, and existential psychology (HTE) are recognized as the three primary
movements of psychology. As such, they provide a rich history of human science and form the basis for understanding human experience and the human condition as a
whole. In this assignment, you will address this history, synthesize the theories, and consider applications of the theories.

Write a paper (2,250-2,500 words) that demonstrates your understanding of the primary movements in psychology – psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and humanistic,
transpersonal, and existential psychology (HTE). Your paper should provide a historical perspective for each of the movements, showcase your understanding of the key
components of each, and suggest a synthesis and application of the theories. Include the following in your paper:
1. An overall historical context of all three movements. (Benchmarks C.1.1: Discuss the history and development of the theories of Psychoanalysis, Behaviorism, and
Humanistic/Transpersonal/Existential (HTE) Psychology)
2. A rationale for why each movement is/was considered essential to understanding human behavior and experiences.
3. An analysis of psychoanalysis/psychodynamic theory. What were the primary tenets and perspectives of the theories? Who were the key theorists? How did their work
lead them to new ideas including Neo-Freudianism?
4. An analysis of behaviorism. What were the theoretical underpinnings of the movement? What were the primary tenets and concepts of the movement? Why were these
tenets and concepts important? Who were the key theorists?
5. An analysis of humanistic, transpersonal, and existential psychology (HTE). From what cultural and historical contexts did the movement emerge? What were the
primary tenets and concepts of the movement? Why were these tenets and concepts important? How do these tenets and concepts differ across the movement? Who were the
6. A synthesis of these movements. How did these movements enhance the understanding of human behavior, growth, and potential? (Benchmarks C.1.2: Synthesize the
theories of Psychoanalysis, Behaviorism, and HTE Psychology)
7. An evaluation of the applications of the theories that were the basis for each of these movements. To what extent has the application of these theories enhanced
treatments in mental health and the helping professions? (Benchmarks C.1.3: Evaluate the common applications of Psychoanalysis, Behaviorism, and HTE Psychology)
8. A statement of next steps. What comes next in the development of psychological approaches to understanding human behavior and experience
2: Academic Journal Article Review #2
Historians love to review the works of other historians. Whenever a new history book is written, the historical profession selects experts in particular fields of
studies to determine the value and contribution the new work will have on the academic discipline. Upon completion of the course’s reading, each student will be
considered an expert and be required to read an academic article and submit a 2-page review (minimum). Students are encouraged to celebrate the author’s
accomplishments, but also challenge anything that seems substandard. Style and creativity play a crucial role in the success of your review.
Each paper should include the following:
The author’s purpose in writing the article
The author’s main thesis
The author’s challenging of other historical viewpoints
The evidence utilized by the author (specifically primary sources)
How could the author make the work stronger?
The recommended audience for the article?
Explain how this article contributes to understanding the history of the United States
An example of how this article supports/contradicts Eric Foner’s Give Me Liberty
Suggested reading to accompany this work (not required, but helpful)
The Format should be as follows:
The first paragraph introduces the author and the article you will review
A sentence should give an initial impression of the work
Express the purpose and thesis in the introduction paragraph
One paragraph should summarize the article
Several paragraphs should address the items listed above.
The final paragraph should express the importance of this work (or the lack)
