    Perspectives, Views, Theories, and Therapies

    The text covers the perspectives, views, therapies, and theories building psychology through the generations from a casual observation into a scientific investigation. This investigation will discuss the earliest treatments of the mentally ill and how the treatment improves over the years into modern psychology. Psychology makes the transformation into the scientific study of behavior and in doing many theorists step forward to interpret not only behavior but also emotion and motivation as well. In existence is no set theory defining psychology or human behavior. The complexity of human behavior makes interpretation difficult; regardless, theories of psychology the basis of which is research and not opinion. When forming opinions on theories regarding psychology the research of the earliest philosophers and most notable psychologists of the 19th - 21st centuries permits an individual to possess his or her own perspectives and views in regard to psychology and human behavior.
