Why is thought suppression important for psychologists?
Attending live Seminars is important to your academic success, and attendance is highly recommended. The Seminar allows you to review the important concepts presented in each unit, discuss work issues in your lives that pertain to these concepts, ask your instructor questions, and allows you to come together in real time with your fellow classmates. There will be a graded Seminar in Units 1 through 9 in this course. You must either attend the live Seminar or you must complete the Seminar alternative assignment in order to earn points for this part of the class.
The purpose of this Seminar is to discuss the unit’s Reading. Please come to Seminar prepared to discuss the following:
- What is the Stroop Effect?
- What areas of the brain are involved in attention tasks?
- Why is thought suppression important for psychologists?
To earn Seminar credit for this unit, complete one of the following:
Option 1: Participate in a synchronous Seminar discussion. You are strongly encouraged to participate in the live Seminar. Many students find this discussion very helpful because your instructor will clarify the unit material and your classmates may pose questions that you also have.
Option 2: You will benefit most from completing Seminar option 1. However, if you are unable to attend you have the opportunity to make up the points by listening to the Seminar archive and writing a paper summarizing the Seminar. You must make sure you address the questions above in your paper. You should create your paper in MS Word and your work should be formatted in APA style. Your paper should be composed in complete sentences and paragraphs and be at least 500 words in length. You should submit your work to the Unit 3: Seminar Dropbox by the end of the unit.
