PSYCH 418 / RELIGION 448. Psychology and Spiritual Development.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Richard D Mann (rdmann@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~rdmann/

This course explores the stages of spiritual development, beginning with awakening and initiation, through the deepening of direct experience and the formulation of a coherent spiritual path, including the notion of an ultimate attainment. It explores the function of spiritual groups and teachers in facilitating this development. Of particular interest are: (1) the spiritual seeker's experience of "little death," the mode of apparent discontinuity when the "old life" is supplanted by a new identity and mode of living; (2) times of crisis, adaptation, and "the dark night". and (3) the experience of "physical death," as seen from the perspective of a lifetime of encountering both relative and absolute reality.

By means of personal narratives and fictional accounts, this course explores how diverse traditions create and value these moments of surrender and transformation. Lectures and readings by Hesse, Jung, Hillesum, Feild, Lessing, Soygal Rimpoche, Wilber, and others will form the basis of three short papers and one long final paper. There will be no final exam.

PSYCH 442. Perception, Science, and Reality.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Robert G Pachella (pachella@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Introductory psychology. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~psycours/442/

The course focuses on basic perceptual phenomena and theories. It also examines the general relationship between perception and scientific observation. Topics include: sensory transduction and psychophysics; Gestalt organization; constancy and contrast effects; expectation; selective attention; perceptual learning; and symbolic representation.

While this course is oriented toward the natural sciences, it also considers social, philosophical, and aesthetic perspectives, since at its most general level, human perception concerns the questions of how and why human beings use sensory information to conceive of, and experience immediate reality the way they do.

The instructor assumes no particular psychology background, and non-psychology concentrators are welcome. Grades will be determined on the basis of two short papers (worth a total of 40% of the grade) and one longer paper (worth 60% of the grade). Questions concerning this class can be e-mailed to Robert Pachella.

    Credits: (3).

    The study of work teams is a thriving area of research for organizational psychologists. The course will cover state-of-the-art theory and research on the nature of group behavior in organized work settings, and fundamental factors that lead to group effectiveness. We will examine both contextual factors (for example, organizational resources, the design of the task, rewards) and factors within the group (for example, feelings of safety among group members). The course combines traditional learning methods (reading, lecture, discussion) with skill development through participation in group exercises. The course is structured so that learning can take place at three levels: through meetings of the class as a whole; in small teams carrying out course-related exercises or projects; and in individual reading, study, and analysis. Overall, what you learn from this course will be as much a product of peer interaction as it will be a product of other course activities. Evaluation will be based on class participation, group projects, and peer ratings. The course pack that you will be using is from Accu-Copy.

    This course is an introduction to the environmental crises and challenges of our time, from the perspectives of the natural and social sciences. The natural-science perspective will be presented through a survey of geological, ecological, and evolutionary processes which support the earth's natural resources. The social science perspective will be presented through an evolutionary and behavioral approach to the customs, attitudes, and behaviors toward nature, resources, and the quality of life in contemporary western and non-western cultures. These perspectives will be integrated to demonstrate that we have substantially different choices about how to live, with different consequences in terms of ecological and social impact, as well as in personal satisfaction. Linking these viewpoints is the outlook for a sustainable future, in terms of the quality of life for the global human population, for ecosystems, and for the integrity of physical systems.

    Sections involve discussions, several field trips to local natural areas and businesses, exercises in common property resources, and a campus-sustainability project. Students write several essays, prepare several quantitative reports, keep a journal, and conduct a group project.

    The objective of this course is to give students the most up-to-the-date information on the biological, personal, and societal relevance of sleep. Personal relevance is emphasized by the fact that the single best predictor of daytime performance is the quality of the previous night's sleep. The brain actively generates sleep, and the first third of the course will overview the neurobiological basis of sleep cycle control.

    Sleep will be used as a vehicle for teaching basic neuroanatomical and neuropharmacological principles. This information will provide a cellular-level understanding of how sleep deprivation, jet lag, and substances such as alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine alter sleep and wakefulness. It is now clear that sleep significantly alters physiology.

    The second third of the class will cover sleep-dependent changes in physiology and sleep disorders medicine. Particular emphasis will be placed on disorders of excessive sleepiness, insomnia, and sleep-dependent changes in autonomic control. Chronic sleep deprivation impairs immune function and promotes obesity. Deaths due to all causes are most frequent between 4 and 6 A.M., and the second portion of the class will highlight the relevance of sleep for preventive medicine.

    The societal relevance of sleep will be considered in the final portion of the class. In an increasingly complex and technologically oriented society, operator-error by one individual can have a disastrous negative impact on public health and safety. Fatigue-related performance errors contributed to the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl nuclear power plant failures and to the Exxon Valdez Alaskan oil spill. The personal relevance of fatigue-related performance errors will be considered by reviewing recent data showing that in the U.S. more people die from medical mistakes each year than from highway accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS.

    Fulfillment of course objectives will be quantified by pre- versus post-class informational self-evaluation. In-class arousal levels will be facilitated by seminar participation.

    PSYCH 542. Decision Processes.

    Section 001 Meets With Psych 722.001.

    Instructor(s): J Frank Yates (jfyates@umich.edu)

    Prerequisites: An introductory course in statistics is recommended but not required. (3).

    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: http://www.umich.edu/~psycours/542/

    Consider the following:

    • Should I take Psychology 542 or Art History 477?
    • I'm not really good at chemistry and things like that; my grades in those courses stink. So should I give up on my dream of becoming a doctor?
    • Other companies, especially Chrysler, are making tons of money selling sport utility vehicles. But they seem to have the business locked up. Should we enter that market anyway?
    • My client, Mr. Thomas, thinks that Consolidated is responsible for his injuries and thus he wants to sue them. Should I advise that he go through with that plan?
    • Floyd and I have been going together for several years, and now he wants to get married. Should I give in and do that, despite my misgivings??
    • As alderman for the fifth ward, should I vote for this legislation that would change the zoning rules for the city?

    Questions like these illustrate the kinds of decision problems people confront all the time, in their personal and professional lives. They provide the ultimate focus of Psychology 542, "Decision Processes." Specifically, my primary aims in this course are to help the student do two things: (a) achieve an understanding of how people individually and collectively actually solve decision problems; and (b) develop an understanding of how people including the student him- or herself could decide better than they would be inclined to decide naturally.

    Should you elect Psychology 542? One consideration you should take into account is whether the aims described above fit with your interests. That is, do the aims excite you? Another consideration pertains to your future plans. Psychology 542 would be good preparation if your plans include either:

    • scholarship (e.g., in graduate school and thereafter) on basic processes in cognitive, social psychology, or organizational psychology, or related areas, e.g., political science, economics, marketing
    or
    • professional practice (either immediately after college or after professional school) in areas where decision making is critical, e.g., business, law, health care, counseling, operations engineering.

    How is Psychology 542 organized? What happens in a typical day in the course? What would you be required to do as a student in Psychology 542? These remarks provide answers to such questions:

    Psychology 542 is built around what I call the "cardinal issue perspective" on decision making. This is a way of thinking about decision problems which focuses on things like: what decisions really are, what it ought to mean to say that a decision is "good" or "bad," and the kinds of questions that must be answered for virtually any decision problem that arises. The specific topics we will address are organized according to the categories distinguished in the cardinal issue perspective. And one of my major goals is to have you develop a deep appreciation for the perspective, since it can help you think through the problems you will face as a student of decision making and as a decision maker.

    Our treatment of a given topic typically proceeds as follows: First, students do the reading for the given topic. Then the key questions surrounding the topic are illustrated through demonstrations or exercises. We next have structured discussions of the readings, demonstrations, and exercises where everyone in the class participates actively. Finally, I, as the instructor, offer a class-interactive presentation in which I (a) introduce essential ideas not covered in the readings, demonstrations, and exercises, (b) highlight key points that were covered, and (c) try to integrate everything we considered, to help students make sense of it all. Normally, our treatment of a broad topic spans 2-3 class sessions.

    The requirements of the course include:

    1. attendance and active participation in class;
    2. exercises;
    3. small quizzes; and
    4. a final, integrative examination.

    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2001/fall/psych/581/002.nsf

    This course addresses how we form judgments about others, ourselves, or social problems. What determines which information we consider or ignore? How do we make sense of ambiguous or inconsistent information? Which heuristics do we employ in social judgment and when do they lead us astray? What is the role of moods and emotions in reasoning? How are our thought processes influenced by the social and communicative context in which we do much of our thinking? Each topic will be introduced with an overview lecture, followed by in-depth discussion of selected research articles.

    Students are expected to read 2 or 3 articles each week; to prepare for class discussion on the basis of questions that invite the application of what has been learned; and to write a term paper on a topic of their choice. The estimated work load per week, in addition to class participation, is about 4 to 5 hours. Grading is based on class participation, the short quizzes, and the term paper. Participation, the quizzes, and the term paper each count one third.

For each theory, we will focus on four principal questions: (1) What explicit or implicit assumptions does the theory make about human nature? (2) What are the main elements that the theory uses to describe normal personality? (3) How is each theory related to the other theories? (4) What are some representative ways in which each theory has contributed (or could contribute) to contemporary personality research?

    This three-term course is primarily a course for the first year cohort of the social psychology area and joint program students admitted to social psychology. The overall framework of the course is on the discussion of scientific responsibility in science and professional development. The fall term consists of an overview of current faculty research projects, an introduction to available scholarly resources, and a general historical and current orientation to graduate level research in social psychology. At the end of the first term, students present an extended abstract of their first year research project (619). During the winter term, students discuss their progress on these projects with the cohort, and during the third (fall of the second year) or fourth term make formal presentations of their findings in the social psychology brown bag.

    Within the domain of language (especially syntactic processing), we will explore some of the major issues and interfaces in cognitive science. How can we learn about cognitive processes that are not directly observable and are unavailable to conscious awareness? Is the mind composed of autonomous modules or does it function as an interactive whole? What are the mental representations involved in language processing? What can we learn from computational models of our theories of mental behavior? What can we learn about normal functioning by studying cases in which the neural hardware has been damaged? The course will be a mix of lecture, discussion, and student presentations. The readings have been chosen from book chapters and journal articles. There are a few classics, but most readings are from the last 5 10 years. Grading will be based upon discussion, student presentations, and a term paper. This course is designed for graduate students in cognitive psychology, linguistics, computer science, or a related field. We will meet Tues/Thurs, 10:00 11:30. For more information, contact Julie Boland, Associate Professor of Psychology and Linguistics: jeboland@umich.edu or 4-4488.

    This course will focus on the factors that play a role in the social development of the child using a transactional ecological framework. The transactional perspective will permit interpreting the relative importance of what the child brings to the situation, the experience that the environment provides, and how each is affected by the other. The ecological perspective will permit an analysis of the social environment into separate systems that influence the child including the family, school, peer group, ethnic and economic status. Specific topics to be considered include the development of intimate relationships from early parental attachments to later romantic ones, the regulation of behavior from toddler assertiveness to adult conduct disorder, the relation between temperament, parenting practices and later personality, and the development of self-representations including gender and ethnic dimensions.

    This course addressed problems of organized behavior. The course identifies a basic duality of human nature that we are individual and we are part of groups. We have a life and mind of our own and we are part of the life and mind of the group. This duality appears as a paradox, as two correct by contradictory view of human behavior. One view sees human behavior as individual behavior. This behavior can be combined to comprise groups and organizations. The other view sees human behavior as organizational behavior. This behavior can be analyzed and reduced to a system of roles enacted by individuals. The course focuses on this duality and the paradoxes and problems it poses for understanding and managing human behavior.

    Decision making is a fundamental human activity. That is why various aspects of decision making are examined throughout the academy, from all areas of psychology to biology, mathematics, economics, philosophy, history, law, business, engineering, health care, and public policy. Sometimes decision questions play only a small role in the primary concerns of any particular field or any given scholar whereas at other times they are central. Regardless, progress on these problems benefits greatly from the communication and debate of ideas across all arenas of decision scholarship. The Decision Consortium Seminar is a major forum for such interchanges. In each weekly session of the seminar, one member of the Consortium, from any of a variety of units in the University community, presents ideas or results from his or her decision research program. Participants in the seminar, informed by perspectives that are typically quite distinct from those of the presenter, offer their own observations and recommendations on the issues raised. Students who elect this course participate in these discussions fully. On alternate weeks, they also meet as a group with the instructor to discuss independently issues that arose in the main seminar per se and to review the commentaries that student participants write about the seminar sessions. Besides their acquaintance with new and exciting ideas and findings on decision making questions, students can expect a host of other benefits from participation in the seminar. Among them are new skills in the review and synthesis of cross-disciplinary ideas and an awareness of valuable methods and literatures that extend beyond those in students' home disciplines. An especially gratifying benefit reported by students in the past has been the development ties, and even collaborations, with students and faculty who share their enthusiasm for questions about how people decide and how they could decide better.

    This three credit graduate course in clinical psychology presents an introduction to understanding the etiology, the presentation of, and the process of a number of developmental disturbances in childhood. Following the developmental psychopathology model, research on the relevant risk and protective factors associated with these disturbances is presented. The course begins with a review of five theoretical frameworks useful for understanding disturbances of behavior during childhood. For each class session, a didactic presentation of the issue is followed by a clinical case presentation, a film, and/or an invited speaker. Coverage of behavioral disorders includes attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, as well as conduct and oppositional-defiant disorders. Coverage of emotional and social disorders ranges from childhood depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress, to social withdrawal. Developmental and learning disorders reviewed in the course are autism, childhood onset schizophrenia, mental retardation, tic disorders and learning disabilities. Areas of risk for infants and children include disorders of attachment, loss, and family violence. Health-related disturbances are eating disorders and chronic health problems. Finally, the section on resiliency and protective factors explores the features of environments and of the children themselves that serve to ameliorate otherwise deleterious developmental outcomes. Children with a range of disturbances, and from a range of ages (up to age 16), will be represented.

    In this course, we will focus on theoretical and empirical research in cognitive science on learning, thinking, and problem solving and the implications of this research for instructional practice. In particular, this course addresses questions such as, What do we know about the brain, and "lower-level" cognitive processes such as attention and working memory, that might have implications for instruction? When do knowledge and skills transfer to other, novel situations? Can domain- general, higher-order reasoning skills be taught? What are different learning outcomes when people "learn by doing" or learn by "being told." How does a student's knowledge of his or her own mental processes (metacognition) influence learning outcomes? How do individual differences (in intelligence, learning styles, attentional skills, etc) influence the best methods for instruction, as well as learning outcomes? And, what are the cognitive processes involved in school subjects such as reading, writing, and arithmetic?

    The course readings include current and classic theoretical, basic empirical, and applied articles. This is a discussion-oriented seminar, and everyone will be expected to read the articles assigned before the class period and to actively participate in class discussion. Other requirements include brief weekly reaction papers, questions for discussion, and a final paper.

All class participants are required to attend all sessions of the conference and to meet on Sunday evening with Glen Elder. These sessions will be supplemented by class discussion sessions prior to and following the conference. We will not meet each week because the conference will constitute a substantial amount of what would otherwise be class time. Class time will focus on understanding life-course developmental approaches to the study of human development across the life span. Required readings will include Richard Settersten's new book Lives in Time and Place as well as readings by prominent researchers interested in development during adolescence and adulthood. Particular attention will be paid to the role of such social categories as gender and ethnicity, the role of life events and historical periods, and the role of cultural beliefs about the life span on life course development. Students will be expected to lead at least one class period and to prepare a paper applying a life course perspective to their own research interest.
