Psychology Discussion Requirements  

 

1. You are required to have 3 posts in each discussion and these three posts must be made on three separate days.  The first post is the initial response to the question that appropriately and completely addresses the topic. This must be completed by 11:59 p.m.(EST) Thursday night. It is best to post it at the beginning of the week. The remaining two posts are responses to two different classmates. The first response to a classmate is due Saturday at 11:59 p.m.(EST) and the second response to a classmate is due on Sunday at 11:59 p.m.(EST).  Responses to me do not count as a response to another student; however, I will interact with each of you throughout the course. I encourage you to respond back. If you do not post on three separate days you will lose points (possible 15 point deduction). There will be a deduction of 5 points per day that the initial post is late. Posts are not accepted after the week closes on Sunday night.

2. Your initial post (your response to the topic) must contain a citation.  It is your ideas supported by research. Please refer to the APA Power Point in the Start Here section of the classroom for information on proper formatting. There will be a deduction of 20 points for failure to citea source within your initial post and to provide a reference at the end of your initial post.

3. Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words and each response must be a minimum of 150 words. Please double-check your word count. Only posts that meet the word count requirements receive credit.

4. Post your word count at the end of each post. There will be a 5 point deduction for each failure to provide a word count.

5.  Please address fellow students and professor by name. There will be a 5 point deduction for each failure to address by name.

6. Please use spell-check and proper grammar. Points will be deducted for each spelling and grammatical error up to 10 points for each post.

Professionalism is a very serious matter in your online class at Keiser University and in the field of psychology.  Our mission is to provide you with an education that prepares you to succeed in the workplace and in graduate programs. Please use the following guidelines in our discussion forum and in all communication at Keiser University:

• I will “listen” to others respectfully.
• I recognize that online learning is devoid of physical cues that often support communication and will strive to use language that  clearly 
  expresses my views.
• I will strive to utilize language that is thoughtful, respectful, and collegial when communicating with my fellow students.
• When I disagree with someone, I will critique his/her ideas in a respectful and constructive manner.
• I will try to understand other people’s behaviors and perspectives rather than simply criticize them.
• I will avoid stereotypes and humor that is disparaging of others.
• I will avoid texting language, slang, or other non-professional communication.

Learning to Manage Stress for Optimum Health

 

Read pages 425-447

Our textbook mentions the relationship between stress and health and the importance of learning positive measures to ensure our physical and mental well-being. The authors explain that, “a stressor is a condition or event that challenges or threatens a person” (Coon & Mitterer, 2016, p. 425). We also read that, “Burnout occurs when workers are physically, mentally, and emotionally drained (Leiter, Gascon, & Martinez-Jarreta, 2010 as cited in Coon & Mitterer, 2016, p. 427). This highlights the importance of knowing good coping skills and setting boundaries for ourselves where our obligations are concerned. Take the Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRSS) on page 428.

For this week’s main post, answer the following questions. Be sure to include factual, properly cited information in your post.

What did you learn about yourself? What stressors and or “hassles” do you recognize in your life? What measures can you take in order to lower your stress and optimize your health and well being? How will this enable you to become a more productive student? Do you see a mind, body, soul connection?
