Invitation to Social Psychology

Synopsis
Introduces social psychology by looking at the subject matter, its methods of investigation and its findings. Covers affiliation, attribution theory, cognitive dissonance, conformity, and aggression. Features re-enactments of Bandura and Walters’ work on the social learning of aggression, Milgram’s study of obedience, and Zimbardo’s prison simulation, filmed in a New York city prison. Examines implicit social rules that govern what is appropriate to discuss, and reviews studies on the bystander problem.
