RESEARCH IN SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY
Social psychology is the scientific study of the way people perceive each other, influence each other and enter into relationships with others. This activity enables us to understand the psychological mechanisms at work when individuals are interacting. Many experimental studies, generally undertaken in English-speaking countries, shed new light on human behaviors.
Research in social psychology traces the experiments carried out in laboratories or in the natural environment that enable us to decode the questions linked namely to emotions and to the perception of others.
This discipline provides us with the source of a permanent pedagogical watch, which continuously enriches our approach to training in human resources.
