A1269: Behavioral Psychology: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in Cascade! Winter 2014 (Jan. 28, 2014)
Do you ever wonder why children sometimes obey or, alternatively, disobey their parents? This class will investigate the influence of nurture (as opposed to nature) on behavior through the the lens of a number of 20th century experiments performed on rats, pigeons and people alike. We will look at many elements of behavior, from how we learn to how we respond to responsibility and authority. We’ll also look at a couple of psychological disorders and examine the psychology behind riots and protests. In the end, you can hope to find out why people act the way they do.
