PSYCH 418 / RELIGION 448. Psychology and Spiritual Development.

Section 001.

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

Prerequisites: (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

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:

  • 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;
  • times of crisis, adaptation, and 'the dark night'; and
  • 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, Thich Nhat Hanh, Hillesum, Wilber, Batchellor, and others will form the basis of two short papers and one long final paper. There will be no final exam.

Instructor(s): Karen Epstein (kepstein@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Psych. 360. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2002/winter/psych/464/001.nsf

The study of work teams is a thriving area of research for organizational psychologists. The course will utilize principles and concepts from organizational psychology to understand the nature of group behavior in organized work settings. A major goal is to discern fundamental determinants of group effectiveness by placing a greater emphasis on contextual influences than on intragroup factors. The course combines traditional learning methods (reading, lecture, and discussion) with skill development through participation in structured 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.

This course will explore the experience and the construct of gender as lived by individual women and men. Students will be invited to examine how gender mediates one's relationship to the body, desire and identity and how, in turn, these relationships can challenge our assumptions about gender. We will consider the process of gender development, for both men and women, across the lifespan, and in a multicultural context. Relationships between gender and biology, social roles and relationships, work, violence, and mental health will also be examined. Readings, case studies, class discussions and films will supplement information presented through lectures.

The reading for this course will be in a coursepack.

PSYCH 500. Special Problems in Psychology as a Natural Science.

Section 001 Behavior of Wolves and Dogs. (3 Credits). Prerequisites: Two courses in animal behavior.

Instructor(s): Barbara Boardman Smuts (bsmuts@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Introductory Psychology. (2-4). Only 6 credits of Psych. 400, 401, 402, 500, 501, and 502 combined may be counted toward a concentration plan in psychology, and a maximum of 12 credits may be counted toward graduation. May be repeated for a total of twelve credits.

Credits: (2-4).

Course Homepage: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2002/winter/psych/500/001.nsf

This course reviews the behavior of the dog family (Canidae), within the theoretical framework of evolutionary biology and behavioral ecology. The course emphasizes social behavior, including social structure, reproduction, parental care, cooperation, competition, and communication. We will focus on domestic dogs and their ancestors, grey wolves, as well as other wild dog species (such as coyotes, jackals, and African wild dogs). Domestic dogs and wolves are very close relatives; they produce fertile hybrids, and recent genetic analyses suggest that they could be considered a single species. Yet wolves and dogs show some consistent physical and behavioral differences. A detailed look at the behavior of wild wolves will serve as a foundation for investigating questions such as: (1) How are wolves and dogs similar and different behaviorally and physically? (2) When, why, and how did wolves first begin to associate with humans, and how did they evolve into dogs? (3) How has human selection altered (or failed to alter) the basic nature of the wolf? Investigation of these and other questions will help students refine their knowledge of conceptual issues relevant to animal behavior in general.

This is a seminar and active participation in discussions is mandatory. Grades are based on 6 short essays, a 10-15 page research paper, regular participation in discussion, and occasional quizzes on the readings. Video footage of dog and wolf behavior will be shown during class, and there will be opportunities to observe "live" social interactions among domestic dogs. The reading load is heavy and includes four books plus a number of research articles. To enroll in this course, you must have already taken at least two courses in animal behavior or get special permission from the instructor.

This course is designed to provide students the opportunity to learn to apply well-documented principles of learning and study skills to their academic courses as well as other areas in their lives. The first step is a "dynamic assessment" in which the student is an active participant. The student decides on the areas in which the work will be focused for the term and how the areas will be applied to courses or academic concerns the student has. The student will choose a particular content area of special interest. A major part of the course is individualized, taking into account areas of skill development as well as exploration of new areas of special interest. Assignments include weekly reports, a series of brief written assignments, and a final paper. Students will meet in small groups as well as individually with instructor.

PSYCH 551. Advanced Topics in Developmental Psychology.

Section 541 Improving Literacy in America. Guidelines from Current Research.

Instructor(s): Frederick J. Morrison (fjmorris@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Psych. 350. (3). May be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

For almost two decades, concerns have been raised in the scientific and popular literature about the inadequate levels of literacy being attained by significant numbers of American children and adults. The impact of poor literacy on the social, economic and personal lives of Americans is significant and pervasive. In the search for causes and cures of America's literacy problems, primary emphasis has been placed almost exclusively on the schools and process of schooling itself. Yet accumulating evidence over the past 10 years paints a very different picture of the nature, origins, and sources of America's literacy problems. This course will examine the complex roots of literacy, including an examination of early parenting, schooling, and broader sociocultural influences shaping growth of literacy skills in American children. The focus of the course will be on identifying the major causes of our current literacy problems and in suggesting concrete ways to improve literacy in America today.

No special background is needed. Courses in developmental or educational psychology would be helpful. Course requirements will include a student presentation, a midterm paper, and a final paper on how to improve literacy in America. No text will be required; there will be a coursepack. The course will be conducted as a seminar/discussion group.

Prerequisites: Psych. 370. (3). May be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

The main activity of this lab is to conduct a Head Start-University Partnership research project designed to better understand the trajectories of social and emotional development in three and four year old children from low income families. We draw upon an ecological model of developmental psychopathology that views risk and protection within "nested" contexts that mutually interact so as to aggregate or buffer problematic socio-emotional outcomes for young children. More particularly, in this lab our interest is in assessing preschoolers' mental health and social competence in school and stress related to exposure to three levels and types of violence - media [TV] violence, community violence, and family violence. We are further interested in exploring factors such as parenting strengths, and social support, that mediate and/or moderate children's mental health over time.

This three credit research lab course in clinical psychology consists of a mandatory weekly class and research meeting as well as field work at the Jackson/Hillsdale Head Start program school sites. The class meets each Friday with a research presentation from 2-3 p.m. and discussion and research meeting from 3-4 p.m. This lab is designed to provide state-of-the-art knowledge on violence research and first hand experience in research with young children in low-income families, their teachers and their mothers. Weekly presentations will cover an introduction to research on children exposed to violence, research ethics, evaluating child outcomes from adjustment problems to resiliency, evaluating family violence, community violence and media violence exposure, children's normative beliefs about aggression, national issues in research with Head Start children, assessing children's family stereotypes, gender beliefs, using census data and crime data to identify community resources and risks, and interventions for young children exposed to violence.

The required course text is: Domestic Violence in the Lives of Children: The Future of Research, Intervention, and Social Policy (2001). S. A. Graham-Bermann & J. Edleson, Eds, Washington, DC: APA Books.
