Publisher's Summary

Why do people do what they do? What governs our thoughts and actions? As this audio course on social psychology shows, the answers to these questions are more complex - and fascinating - than you might realize. 

Our social situations can lead us to act in unexpected ways. Depending on the context, we can soar with dramatic joy or get lost in frustration and aggression. Sometimes we demonstrate deep compassion towards others, sometimes prejudice. 

As you will discover, such thoughts, feelings, and actions reflect even the subtlest features of our situations. A celebrated professor at Swarthmore College, Andrew Ward reveals the unseen forces behind social behaviors. Using his expertise on social perception as well as conflict and negotiation, he helps you grasp the psychology of our relationships and interactions. 

Under his guidance, you will explore the most essential concepts in social psychology. In 18 lectures, you will examine the dynamics of human attraction, interpersonal conflict, and other fundamental topics. You’ll also investigate the impact of social psychology research on diverse fields like education, business, health, and law. 

Prof. Ward delivers each lecture with a cheerful and engaging style, prompting you to reflect on a myriad of examples of surprising behavior. Armed with a new awareness of social influences, you will learn to better understand and interact with those around you.
