Professional Certificate in Social Psychology
Social psychology is the study of how people act, think and feel in the context of society. Social Psychology introduces us to the science of society; how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are influenced by the world we lived in. Social Psychology will enable us to look at the importance of a healthy concept of self and what can influence this, the self-perception theory and how it relates since a person’s self-concept is how we perceive ourselves – an all-encompassing awareness we had of ourselves in the past, have in the present and our expectations of the future.
