Applied social psychology
is a field unto itself and provides researchers with a direct
connection between academic social psychology and their desire
to have an impact on social change. Social psychology is a
highly applicable field, and social psychological research
influences such areas as: consumer behavior, immigration,
cultural diversity, education, the environment, organizational
functioning, health/mental health, and politics, to name a few
(Steg, Buunk, & Rothengatter, 2008).
For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources.
Think about how you might use applied social psychology in
your field of interest and ways in which to have an impact on
social change.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 3
a brief definition of applied social psychology. Then explain
how you might apply one element of applied social psychology
in your field of interest. Finally, explain one way using applied
social psychology in your field of interest may affect social
change.
