Description - Applied Social Psychology by Marilynn B. Brewer

Applied Social Psychology is a collection of readings from the four-volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology that examine the applications of social psychological theory and research in various domains of personal, institutional, and societal well-being. The readings have been selected to illustrate how social psychological analyses of individual, interpersonal, and group level processes have contributed to important areas of applied psychology in roles that are both descriptive and prescriptive. The book is organized into three sections: Part I reviews the role of social psychological factors in physical and mental health: Part II examines the role of social psychology in social institutions such as law, politics, and social policy: and Part III considers the interface between social psychological processes and social institutions in the world of business and commerce.
