Why do we connect with some people and not others? What makes great teams flourish? How does culture shape our attitudes? How does influence work? Join the coauthor of the world’s best-selling psychology textbooks to find out how small changes to your social environment can produce big changes in how you approach daily life and major decisions.

Most people rush to the power of personality when explaining how we think, feel, and act. While personality certainly plays a role in our behavior, the power of the social situation to influence our actions cannot be underestimated. As it explores the fascinating field of social psychology, this eye-opening audio course busts common myths about human psychology and behavior.

Your instructor is University of Kentucky psychology Professor Nathan DeWall, coauthor of the world’s best-selling psychology textbook. Described by Iowa State University Distinguished Professor of Psychology Craig A. Anderson as “one of the most influential psychological science leaders of his generation”, DeWall’s lectures reveal that he is as passionate about his subject as he is knowledgeable.

In 24 absorbing lectures, you’ll discover many of the different cognitive, motivational, and emotional factors that underlie social behavior. Along the way, you’ll come to appreciate - and evaluate critically - research in the behavioral sciences, applying what you learn from social psychology research to events in the real world. At the end of this course, you will have clearer self-awareness, better tools to foster friendships and romantic relationships, and a more compassionate heart to become a better global citizen.
