John Watson made a major contribution to the world of psychology when he introduced behaviorism. After watching the video at http://www.youtube.com/v/Xt0ucxOrPQE and completing this week’s assigned textbook readings, indicate one specific area in the practice of psychology where behaviorist treatment is valid. Support your opinion with some concrete, everyday observed examples and not just a summary of a theory (everyone can read the course textbook for the latter so you need to just articulate key ideas as a context for your observed examples).
Note: The book we are using in class is: Malone, J. (2009). Psychology: Pythagoras to present. Cambridge, MA. MIT Press.
