Essentials of understanding psychology, questions help

  1. Your textbook (Feldman, R. (2013).  Essentials of understanding psychology (10th Ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson) outlines some prevailing psychological perspectives of thought (neuroscience, psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, and humanistic). Using your own words, summarize three of these perspectives. Provide an example of each perspective to illustrate your summaries.  Which perspective do you think has the most relevance in today’s society, and why? Make sure that you use the textbook to support your answer, but respond to the question in your own words.
