Select one of three provided case studies and apply theories and concepts from social psychology, behavioral ethics, and critical thinking to the case study. Focus on theories related to biases in our thinking, the development of our beliefs, and social influence.
If you could learn how your thoughts may interfere with your own happiness and success, would you want to know? Social psychologists study how our social cognitions (thoughts, attitudes, beliefs) influence our happiness and behavior. Research findings tell us that social cognition has the ability to shape and predict behavior. The more self-knowledge and self-awareness we have, the more intentional we can be about our behavioral choices and the more we can resolve conflicts between ourselves and the social world.
Equally important is looking at how emotions are both helpful and hurtful in decision making and to what extent our emotions may be manipulated by others. Emotional regulation is part of emotional intelligence. Without an ability to self-regulate emotion, a concept known as affect regulation, emotions can fuel depression, aggression, and other self-defeating behaviors.
For this assessment, you will complete a media piece and template in which you apply theories and concepts from social psychology related to biases in our thinking, the development of our beliefs, and social influence. You will also apply behavioral ethics and critical thinking concepts. Being a successful practitioner requires us to understand the importance of ethical behaviors. The behaviors we demonstrate will directly influence those we interact with on a daily basis. In addition, the behaviors of others will influence us and our professional practices. Therefore we want to ensure that we behave ethically and have a positive influence.
