About this item

Aiming to connect social-psychological theories to real-life data, this book draws together nontraditional, real-world examples of how social psychological principles have played out in people's lives. The 39 case studies illustrate scientific values in social psychology such as critical thinking, the value of skepticism, the diversity of methods, the social relevance of scientific reasoning, the history of social psychological research, and the everyday applicability of social psychology. They relate to corruption, intuition, and decision making; research methods; the social self; social cognition; person perception; attitudes and persuasion; social influence; group processes; stereotypes, prejudices, and discrimination; helping and prosocial behavior; aggression; and intimate relationships. Each includes discussion questions. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
