Social Psychology looks at the influences of society, groups and interpersonal relationships on the individual, and the individual's location within society. It provides the framework for analysis of the processes and forces we experience in our daily existence as individuals in society. This subject highlights the classic studies that have had a formative impact on Social Psychology and considers the growing body of work which critiques many of these classic studies. It also engages with the continuing debate within Social Psychology about how relevant social psychological theories are to an understanding of, and solution for, modern social problems and issues, including those relevant to Indigenous Australians.
