From my "Abnormal Psychogy" textbook
    #4574999 - 08/24/05 03:37 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

(Chapter on substances abuse)

LSD

..."users have claimed it "expands consciousness" and opens new worlds - as if they were looking into some reality beyond the usual reality. Sometimes they believe they have achieved great insights during the LSD "trip", but when it wears off they usually cannot follow through or even summon up these discoveries."

Marijuana

..."Some users believe the drug increases their capacity for self-insight or creative thinking, although the insights achieved under its influence may not seem so insightful once the drug's effects have passed."


Gee, and people wonder why I've had such trouble in school before. Sometimes I feel like I experience a totally different world than what the "mainstream" claims. So I guess if I want to be a good student, I'm supposed to deny any of those insights because of a condescending attitude?

This, is of course, from a text book that is has a new edition out this year, but still has "facts" from Dr. George Ricaurte's retracted study on Ecstasy about dopamine damage. I think it says a lot about the state of education when an undergraduate student knows more than the authors of the textbook. Pitiful.

Here's something I found rather hilarious:

from Marijuana
..."An accelerated heart rate and sharpened awareness of bodily sensations cause some smokers to fear their hearts will "run away" with them. Some smokers are frightened by disorientation and fear the will not "come back.""

I?m looking forward to this class. If I have a good teacher, it will be very interesting. If I have one of those regurgitate teachers, I?ll probably try to do a dissertation on misinformation and challenge the way things are taught. I have fun doing that.

Which book is it?

I have Halgin Whitbourne's Abnormal Psychology Third Edition.

VERY interesting text book. I just got it to read, never took a class.

It's "Abnormal Psychology In a Changing World". The rest of the book seems to be alright, as it goes more in depth about psychological disturbances, and the neurological basis for some of them. The substances abuse chapter is weird, cause there will be a few really well written paragraphs, but then a whole lot of information that sounds like it came from a NIDA pamphlet. It's sad because a lot of very "professional" texts will just copy & paste from NIDA. Then the people who go out into the mental health field base their knowledge on that and have no clue what "substance abuse" really is.

I took Halgin's abnormal psych course in person- pretty interesting. I spoke with him for a while after a lecture about psychedelic drugs and to a greater extent, mdma. He seems to think of psychedelics and entactogens in the same light as cocaine and opiates.

Whitbourne is a nice woman too, very helpful with us undergrads.

Yeah. Anyway :smile:

Arguing with the book is a good way to flunk the class.

Or at the very least, piss off everyone that has thrown back their brain, opened the hatch, and accepted the fact they have to swallow a load of bullshit.

When will students at higher education realize THEY are the customer and the fat guy with the beard is the customer service representative?

How come I have to call ahead and get a doctors note when I'm sick, but the one guy that EVERYONE depends upon can just get their secretary to leave a note on the door. Well shit that didnt shorten my 20 minute commute.
