biheiviorisms


Definition from Wikipedia:
Biheiviorisms ir psiholoģijas virziens, kas radās ASV 20.gs. 20. gados un uzskatīja, ka prātu nav iespējams pētīt, jo objektīvai novērošanai pakļaujas tikai cilvēka uzvedība, jeb S-R (stimuls-reakcija) ķēde.

Example sentence(s):
  • Kognitīvi biheiviorālā terapija cilvēkam palīdz atrisināt specifiskas problēmas, izmantojot biheiviorisma, sociālās mācības teorijas, uzvedības terapijas, uz uzdevumu vērstas ārstēšanas un kognitīvi orientētas teorijas uzskatus un metodes. Tās nosaukumā – kognitīvi (lat. cognitio – izziņa) biheiviorālā (ang. behaviour – uzvedība, izturēšanās) terapija – uzsvērta domāšanas procesu ciešā saistība ar cilvēka uzvedību. - Psihologijas Pasaule
