    Module 5 Dip Beh&Psych

    Post  JoDog on Wed Jan 23, 2013 5:20 pm

    Hi All,

    I have just started Module 5 of the Behaviour and Psychology Diploma and enjoying it very much. I tend to hop between the Module question and the revision questions just to break upthe monotony a bit. One of th equestions is Find a definition for the term 'Maladaptive Learning'. I have been through quite a few books and many websites and while I can find loads of definitions for maladaptive Behaviour , I can't find anything specificly defining maladaptive learning. scratch Any suggestions? Thanks! Smile

    Hi,The only refernce I can find to this,Maladaptive learning, is this.
    McFarland David, Oxford Dictionary of Animal Behaviour, 2006,
    Oxford,Oxford University Press ISBN 0-19-860721-0
    adaptation.
    'A term denoting some adjustment by the animal to changes in the environment [........]Another form of irreversible adaptation is learning. Learning is essentially an irreversible process,for although animals may appear to forget or extinguish learned behaviour, the internal changes brought about by the learning process are permanent, and can be changed only by further learning.
    [....]In summary the term [adaptation]is used in a variety of ways [...]and (4)adaptation by learning which enables animals to adjust to a wide variety of environmental changes.'
    See also the entry for 'learning' in the same dictionary.
    I think you can deduce from this what would be 'maladaptive learning'.
    If the question is from the 'Revision Questions' the clue should be in the actual module text.
    Hope this helps. Derek

    Hi, Iv'e just had a look at my answers etc. in the course I did -
    'Higher Certificate Cynology,Module 2, Canine Learning' which seems to cover similar ground to your course. Under the, sub heading 'Sensitisation', the Module text reads: 'This phenomenon is said to to have taken place when an animal learns to be fearful of (sensitive to)a stimulus that is in no way a threat. It is a form of MALADAPTIVE LEARNING and is very difficult to reverse.'
    The Revision Question was, 'What is maladaptive learning?'
    So, based on the module text, my answer was, 'Maladative learning refers to an animal learning (wrongly)to be fearful (sensitive to) a stimulus that is in n0 way a threat and this can develop into a phobia.' You should now be able to answer the particular question in your course module.
    By the way,I found it best to read through the course module text first and highlight the questions. Then I would write my answers to all the Revision Questions looking back to the module text.

    Yeah, its really strange not to be looking up appropriate references for
    answers to questions in my spare time. I hope they'll come back to me soon as
    I'm keen to get started. I think it truely turns into an addiction lol.
    Did anyone see the new facebook page they've set up? Some nice photos on
    there
    .
