Introduction
This presentation will go over the various theories that many humans are taught. The theories in the presentation have
contributed to the field of psychology over many years, and
new ideas, data and collection over materials will make the
theories continue to grow with new knowledge that will be
learned. The presentation will also touch base on what was
important to my learning and how I utilized these in everyday living.

Influences on
future of
Psychology
The National Institute of Health
states the future of psychology is
connecting mind to brain.
Influences are emotions, and
cognition will get bigger as time
goes on. Also they will not be
dropped in the future, they will be
developed further (Barrett, 2010).

Presentation information and
Worldview
Information I have learned and
presented in this presentation
has made me aware that there
is more to research than a case
study and results. Life has
evolved around Science a long
time and being more conscious
to what I learn and understand
of the concepts associated by
the field of Psychology has
made me more interested in
what it can teach me.

I have learned that I can
observe others and not judge a
person based on behavior. I
have also learned that many
different people learn
challenges through different
windows of worldview
concepts.

Creative and
Critical Thinking
Creativeness in this
presentation can be found
from the patterns on how
slides were put together
to the use of colors. I
chose to emphasize the
theories as an important
part of my presentation
since I am thorough. I
want the theories to stand
out in the way they stand
out in Psychology.

Critical thinking can be
found from the various
references I found
pertaining to the
presentation. My ability to
think and apply scientific
approaches for problem
and decision making was
developed while learning
the different ways
psychology can be taught.

Conclusion

The presentation has shown that the many aspects of each
theory can be formed into a solution and manipulated into
different outcomes. Science is a field that will continue to grow with new research and new concepts that are formed. Ways of
looking at material learned can be seen in the knowledge of
material taught.
