For the 2019-20 session we continued to use the Social Psychology book by Michael Hogg & Graham Vaughan for our core reading. Social psychology shares a number of features with other fields within psychology and other disciplines such as anthropology. It is often described as having bridged the gap between psychology and sociology as it looks at human behaviour as influenced by other people and the social context in which it occurs.
The subject matter that we used in this session was very thought provoking. We decided to look at aggression and all the factors feeding into this type of behaviour such as:
>The Authoritarian personality.
> Aggression from a personal perspective eg domestic violence, crowd behaviour.
> Institutional behaviour and the influence of power.
> Social dominance and justification theories.
> Global, wars, dictatorship etc;
We occasionally used Professor Mike Leary’s DVD’s and I am happy to say that more group members are now coming forward to facilitate these sessions. Many of the group had perfect attendance and we look forward to another year. We will continue to use Michael Hogg and Graham Vaughan’s book for core reading.
