This course examines concepts and research evidence from areas of social psychology, such as the social self, social influence, cultural variation, attraction, and humanitarian behavior, among others. The underlying variables of mindfulness and arousal are examined as a bridge to the contemplative perspective. Prerequisite: PSYB101.
