Rationale :

Many individuals go through their daily routines with little thought as to what influences their own behavior and the behavior of those around them. They seem unaware of how other people influence their thoughts and behavior. Still, others attempt to understand and explain their behavior, but their explanations are inaccurate. This course will seek to explain how the student’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are influenced by the actual or imagined presence of others so that the student can better understand himself/herself, and those around him/her.

This course will put major emphasis on the theory, research, and scientific evidence supporting the above claims, and is designed to provide the student with psychological evidence that is relevant in every area of psychological inquiry.
