Towards the end of the 19th century, Wilhelm Wundt established psychology as a separate science in Germany (Schultz & Schutlz, 2016). Shortly after, In 1916, Enrique Aragon founded a psychological laboratory at the National University of Mexico (Escobar, 2014). However, interest and movement towards psychological study began years earlier in 1902 when Mexico’s first psychologist, Ezequiel Chavez, ordered five instruments of psychological study from Leipzig, Germany (Escobar, 2014). While it remains unclear as to why the use of the instruments in a lab setting was delayed, it is clear that Mexico was a front-runner of psychological research (Esobar, 2014).

Chavez was greatly influenced by the study of psychologist Edward Titchener, so much so that he translated and taught from Titchener’s works (Escobar, 2014). As Aragon was a student of Chavez, he was also influenced by the works of Wundt and Titchener (Escobar, 2014). Upon establishing the psychological laboratory at the National University of Mexico, Aragon successfully incorporated psychological thought with physiological experimentation. Departing from Wundt’s approach, Aragon’s laboratory approach included the study of evolution as well as psychometrics (Escobar, 2014). Aragon’s psychological laboratory produced several notable psychology students, including; David Boder, who ended up working with Holocaust survivors, and Luz Vera, the recipient of Mexico’s first doctorate degree in Psychology. (Escobar, 2014).

Understanding the diverse contributions to psychology is an important endeavor because it empowers the current cultural perspective. Psychological divergence from a Western perspective is seen as a recent phenomenon (Schultz & Schultz, 2016). Understanding that other cultures not only benefit from a cross-cultural psychological perspective but in fact contributed to its founding, strengthens an inclusive and diverse approach.

2 Questions: Explain of the developmental significance and meaning of work and career AND give a description of two influences on or motivations for pair bonding

  Discussion 1: Work and Career

To find a career to which you are adapted by nature, and then to work hard at it, is about as near to a formula for success and happiness as the world provides. One of the fortunate aspects of this formula is that, granted the right career has been found, the hard work takes care of itself. Then hard work is not hard work at all.
—Mark Sullivan

Regardless of education, individuals entering the workforce will spend, on average, one third of the week at work. Work encompasses a large part of an individual’s life, and society often places great importance on selecting a career that aligns to one’s talents, interests, abilities, and needs. While the theories surrounding the process of career selection vary, many experts identify this type of self-knowledge as a key marker for career success and fulfillment.

For this Discussion, you will reflect on the developmental significance of work and career. You will also consider how a career in the counseling field can add meaning to your life.

Post by Day 3 an explanation of the developmental significance and meaning of work and career. Use two theories in this week’s Learning Resources to support your post. Finally, explain how your decision to pursue the counseling profession may add meaning to your life.



Pair bonding is globally acknowledged as the life-long, monogamous relationship that many individuals strive to achieve. With roots in attachment theory, pair bonding in adulthood has been viewed as following a developmental pattern similar to that which individuals experience with primary caregivers. Fraley and Shaver (2000) noted that “adults typically feel safer and more secure when their partner is nearby, accessible, and responsive” (p. 132). A pair bond can provide a sense of security—an emotional “shelter” and safe place in which one can be vulnerable. Pair bonding is biologically driven. Its manifestations vary widely depending on individual life experiences, expectations, and constructs about self and others.

With this in mind, think about whether you believe adult pair bonding is the same as marriage. If pair bonding is a biological, innate part of being human, why might so many marriages and relationships fail?

For this Discussion, review the Learning Resources and consider influences on and motivations for pair bonding.

Post by Day 4 a description of two influences on or motivations for pair bonding. Then, explain two benefits and two challenges in maintaining stable, long-term relationships in adulthood. Be sure to include how environmental and/or socio-cultural influences impact pair bonding. Finally, explain how relationship challenges may motivate individuals to seek assistance from a counselor. Justify your response with theories from the Learning Resources and current literature.
