What is APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY? What does APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY mean? APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY meaning – APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY definition – APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY explanation.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license.

Applied psychology is the use of psychological methods and findings of scientific psychology to solve practical problems of human and animal behavior and experience. Mental health, organizational psychology, business management, education, health, product design, ergonomics, and law are just a few of the areas that have been influenced by the application of psychological principles and findings. Some of the areas of applied psychology include clinical psychology, counseling psychology, evolutionary psychology, industrial and organizational psychology, legal psychology, neuropsychology, occupational health psychology, human factors, forensic psychology, engineering psychology, school psychology, sports psychology, traffic psychology, community psychology, medical psychology. In addition, a number of specialized areas in the general field of psychology have applied branches (e.g., applied social psychology, applied cognitive psychology). However, the lines between sub-branch specializations and major applied psychology categories are often blurred. For example, a human factors psychologist might use a cognitive psychology theory. This could be described as human factor psychology or as applied cognitive psychology.

The founder of applied psychology was Hugo Münsterberg. He came to America from Italy, and, like many aspiring psychologists during the late 19th century, originally studied philosophy. Münsterberg had many interests in the field of psychology such as purposive psychology, social psychology and forensic psychology. In 1907 he wrote several magazine articles concerning legal aspects of testimony, confessions and courtroom procedures, which eventually developed into his book, On the Witness Stand. The following year the Division of Applied Psychology was adjoined to the Harvard Psychological Laboratory. Within 9 years he had contributed eight books in English, applying psychology to education, industrial efficiency, business and teaching. Eventually Hugo Münsterberg and his contributions would define him as the creator of applied psychology. In 1920, the International Association of Applied Psychology (IAAP) was founded, as the first international scholarly society within the field of psychology.

Most professional psychologists in the U.S. worked in an academic setting until World War II. But during the war, the armed forces and the Office of Strategic Services hired psychologists in droves to work on issues such as troop morale and propaganda design. After the war, psychologists found an expanding range of jobs outside of the academy. Since 1970, the number of college graduates with degrees in psychology has more than doubled, from 33,679 to 76,671 in 2002. The annual numbers of masters’ and PhD degrees have also increased dramatically over the same period. All the while, degrees in the related fields of economics, sociology, and political science have remained constant.

Professional organizations have organized special events and meetings to promote the idea of applied psychology. In 1990, the American Psychological Society held a Behavioral Science Summit and formed the “Human Capital Initiative”, spanning schools, workplace productivity, drugs, violence, and community health. The American Psychological Association declared 2000–2010 the Decade of Behavior, with a similarly broad scope. Psychological methods are considered applicable to all aspects of human life and society.

So you’ve decided to make your career in Psychology? Here are the different psychology classes and courses you need to take to meet your psychology degree requirements.

The preparation for taking a psychology degree begins from before you apply to the different universities for your admission into graduate school. When the graduate admissions committees consider applications for students, they are really interested in students who have taken certain courses while at the undergraduate level.

Typically, students who are given consideration are those who have taken subjects like:

Learning Psychology

Cognitive Psychology

Sensation and Perception

Experimental Psychology

Abnormal Psychology

Physiological Psychology

Developmental Psychology

Research Methodology

They also consider students from a different educational background when the students have taken courses in subjects like Biology, Chemistry, English, Philosophy, Anthropology, Math and Computer Science.

Once you get into a graduate degree program in Psychology, there are some great subjects which you will study.

You will be introduced to General Psychology and the different concepts in psychology which include topics like human development, personality, learning and cognition, emotional disorders and social thought. You will also learn about the different statistical concepts and methods used in psychological research, and also go through the different aspects of research methods used in psychological studies.

Soon, you will be immersing yourself in the different concepts of Industrial or Organizational Psychology where you will learn how to apply the theories of psychology to industrial and social organizations. You will find yourself studying the theories of developmental psychology and learn about the different stages of emotional, social and cognitive development during childhood, adolescence and adulthood.

While studying social psychology, you will learn about human social behavior and the different human attitudes and emotions like aggression, interpersonal relationships, group dynamics, stereotypes, prejudices and the different ethical conflicts faced in psychological research.

For those of you wanting to know more about the process of learning itself, the subject of cognitive learning provides you with the know-how and the tools to understand how knowledge is acquired, how thinking takes place, how we remember things and how all this is practically applied in educational settings.

You will also learn about the different counseling theories, principles, techniques and applications. Interviewing techniques is a subject that will help you develop different techniques for building relationships, interviewing, solving problems and taking decisions with regard to clients. This will prepare you for several real-world situations where you will be interacting with clients on different levels.

Apart from these psychology classes there are several different specialized courses which may differ from school to school. With these basic courses, you will be able to build and create a wonderful career for yourself in the field of Psychology.

One of the most under used and perhaps under rated techniques that all sales reps have in their bag is the power of reverse psychology. When I refer to this, I do not mean the art of manipulating a customer, but rather the ability to help a customer see a bigger picture that will lead you to a sale and a long lasting customer relationship.

Let me use an example to illustrate what I mean. I work for a company that sells a product to their customers for a 3 year term. After the 3 year term, we go back into that customer and try and get them to sign up for another 3 years. Typically we do quite well and have somewhere in the neighborhood of 80% renewal rate.

We had a big customer that was neglected for a whole three years. They had 4 different reps over that period of time, none of which spent much time with them. And to make matters worse, our company had just bought a company that competed with a subset of their product offering. I was given the job of going in and “fixing” the mess as it was called and renewing this contract.

The first meeting I had with them, did not start out very well. I had just begun my presentation about the 2 options that they had for renewal, when I was cut off and told in no uncertain terms that they would not be renewing their contract. They then began to spend the next 10 minutes telling me everything that was wrong with my company and why they would begin to migrate to our competitors’ products and services. I remember sitting there and thinking to myself, “oh boy if I don’t find a way to get them beyond this, we are in a whole heap of trouble”.

After I listened intently, I began the process of reverse psychology. “Listen, I understand that my company has not treated you how you deserve and if I were you I would do the same thing. It is for this reason that I will present you with Option 3, the do nothing Option. You have the rights to our current product set, I suggest you stay at that level for the next 2 or 3 years and we can re-evaluate your technology needs in the future. This way you do not continue to pay us money, for something that we are not helping you use or get the most out of. I only want to ensure that you are able to utilize our products and services and get a return for your business. If we cannot do that, we do not deserve your business.”

You should have seen the reaction to this in the room. My colleague who was in the room and who was counting on his renewal commissions was about ready to jump across the table and choke me, but for me the most important thing to watch was the customer. There were 4 representatives from them in the room. I’m sure they had prepared for this meeting, they were prepared with who was going to play which role and what they were going to tell us about why they would not renew. When we entered the room their body language was hostile, they were all on edge and not one of them had a warm look on their face. As soon as I said this, I watched their reactions. They all sat back in their chairs, they relaxed, they had won after all. I had as much as admitted defeat.

This is when I used the following line. “I only ask one thing for option 3 and one thing only. We may not have treated you like one, but you have been a good customer to us for the last 3 years. I ask that you spend a little time with me over the next couple of weeks and allow me to go through the financials of the decision to do nothing. I want to make sure that your business case for not renewing is solid, so that no one can come back to you in the future and say that you made a bad decision, that you cost your company more money in the long run. Is that fair to ask?”

There was not one of them in the room that did not feel that was a fair ask by me. So over the next 4 to 6 weeks, I spent time with them, not telling them why they should renew, but telling them why they shouldn’t renew. You want to know the amazing part? They actually began attacking and finding flaws in my reasons for them not to renew. And after this time, the discussions turned from not renewing, to renewing only if they saved at least 10% over what they were spending in the past. The final result was that we not only resigned this customer, but we found a way to partner with them, we helped them grow their business and they signed a new contract with us that was double what their old one was.

Some people will say that I did manipulate them. I do not think that personally. I used an old trick that my parents used to use on me when I was a kid. Tell me what I wanted to hear and then use reasoning to convince me that what I wanted to hear wasn’t right. They never told me that it was wrong, as I never told my customer that it was wrong. They would lead the horse to water and allow me to make my own conclusions. It’s a powerful trick that when employed correctly can lead to great results. Oh yeah and that customer, their 3 year renewal just passed again. This time our conversation was a lot better, and we renewed them again.

The first thing that should be known is that what is psychology? Psychology is an empirical science dealing with the bio-social behavior with reference to its environment. The study of this field in philosophical context dates backs to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, China, India and Persia. This article describes the history of psychology starting from the first concept introduced to this world.

Firstly, Structuralism, this was introduced by a German Physician Wilhelm Wundt. The method of inspection used in this field was introspection also known as self observation. This field made use of the conscious mind and sensation of the person to find the answer to the question or any problem. This method is no longer in practice however, as it was not reliable. Wilhelm is also known as father of psychology as he started experimental psychology, set up the first experimental psychology lab and gave the first systematic psychology book to the world. The second step in history was Functionalism which was formed as the reaction to the theories of the structuralist school of thought. This field focused on the mind of the people and that how did it adapted to the environment and the people surrounding it. The main contributor to this school of thought was William James.

The third school of thought in the evolution of the psychology was named Psychoanalysis. The main contributor to this field was Sigmund Freud. It is a method of investigation of the mind and the way one thinks, a form of psychotherapy and a systemized set of theories related to the human behavior. The fourth school of thought was Behaviorism. It was founded by John B. Watson. It dealt with the theories that how people are affected by their environment and that they learn their behavior form the society they live in and later Skinner also introduced his theory in this school of thought named S-O-R or Stimulus organism response. The fourth school of thought is Humanistic. It was developed in reaction to behaviorism and psychoanalysis. This approach glimpse the human as the whole, it does not focuses on only one specific point of human life or personality. The fifth Step is Gestlat psychology. It is a science of perceiving a whole picture, not just the fragments of a picture. It helps in telling about the personality of a person. The major contributor to this science was Max Wertheimer but Kohler and Koffka also helped a lot.

The sixth school of thought to be developed was Cognitivism. It studies the mental processes and in addition to that it studied the way that how people think, remember and learn. The main contributors to this field were George Miller and Albert Ellis. The seventh School of thought was Biopsychosocial model. It is an integrated perspective. This science is the study and understanding on the consciousness, behavior and social relationships. This science assumes that the way one live, act and think is highly affected by the social culture he belongs to.

Present are multiple selections used for a college student toward get financial aid. One of the most pragmatic is having said student work his scheme up the corporate ladder instant still attending class. For the reason that a huge number a selling, healthcare facility and other institution will tell you, it gives both employee plus employer the best of both worlds.

Generally, the American public tends en route for confuse the three types of programs most commonly utilized. Generation they all involve a student working and going to school taking place the equal moment, each one is intended for unlike results.

Used for era, a work-study program is generally used for forfeit. The employer know how to be anyone from the next to-campus or online college the student is enrolled inside near an outside corporation.
