Description

Class Experience

Social psychology is the scientific study of the way individuals think, feel, and behave in social situations. Social psychologists seek to answer many questions that are relevant to our everyday lives. 
These questions include such topics as:
How are we influenced by our environment and by other people? How do we come to know ourselves? How do we form impressions of the people we meet? How do we explain others’ behavior? What causes relationships to begin or to fail? 
Why are people sometimes helpful, but at other times aggressive or even cruel? 
What are attitudes and how do they affect us? 
What leads to conformity and obedience? 
How do group processes affect us?
I have worked with middle school, high school and college students as a teacher and Director of Education and I spent over 10 years doing mental health counseling with children, adolescents and young adults. I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and a Master's in Mental Health Counseling and have all but dissertation for a PhD in Educational Psychology with coursework completed in clinical psychology, as well. 
Individual activities will be done during class and articles will be provided to read. 
I provide hand-outs during class sessions.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Written report which will discuss the learner's strengths in the class.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There is brief references to Hitler when we talk about Milgram's studies and ethical studies in psychology are discussed. If a student brings up inappropriate content for the class or appears to be emotionally bothered by any of the topics I will allow them to leave the class briefly during that topic and will follow up with the student at the end of class. 
I will provide handouts that I create during the class sessions.
