    • www.helpingpsychology.com Social psychology is a branch of psychology that studies how individuals think , feel about and affect one another’s thoughts , emotions and conduct . It analyzes the ways in which social circumstances and personal interpretations influence an individual’s behavior in a group setting. http://hr.gmu.edu/worklife/lunch/lunch1.jpg
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Because it is an academic subject that is broad in scope it overlaps both with other branches of psychology, like psychology and developmental psychology and with other social sciences like sociology, anthropology and communication.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Social psychology has a long history, although as an academic discipline it was marginalized for a long time before becoming a standard part of any psychology curriculum.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com One of the first research forays into social psychology is credited to Norman Triplett, a 19th century scientist who studied the effect of competition on children’s performance in reel-winding. http://extend.schoolwires.com/clipartgallery/images/19141481.jpg
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Scholars and theorists including Herbert Mead, the author of “The Social Self” (1913) and Sigmund Freud, who analyzed the ego from the standpoint of group psychology, lay groundwork in the early 20th century for social psychology of today. http://cache2.asset-cache.net/xc/AB00292.jpg?v=1&c=NewsMaker&k=2&d=A5C9C13351D9C3B7F0F1F12CF059AD0B2C71918B84C895EE24605ED12E60579F
    • www.helpingpsychology.com World War II and the Cold War spurred a renewed interest in social psychology in the United States, as the American government became interested in empirically studying issues of fear, trust, collective identity, obedience and conformity. Social psychology also studies dating behaviors, differences in child rearing attitudes, the development of empathy and altruism, ways to improve self-esteem, gift-giving rituals, workplace relationships and much more.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com A typical course in social psychology would probably include subjects like social perception and cognition, social influence and persuasion, self-presentation and impression management, and prosocial and antisocial behavior. Social psychology is a necessary part of a general education in psychology, but it can also be useful for businessmen, educators and anyone interested in a deeper understanding of the human condition.
