Capella University Susan Career Adjustment Goals Paper

Humanities

  • Write 3–4 pages in which you apply theories and concepts from social psychology, behavioral ethics, and critical thinking to a case study you choose. Focus on a theory related to the self or self-regulation.Social psychology can help you understand the world around you and answer questions about why people behave the way they do. Why is it so hard to take a chance and go back to school? Why do people start smoking when they know it’s bad for them? Why do protests turn violent at times? Being able to apply social psychological theory to personal and professional situations as well as to current events is a skill you need in order to take steps toward that understanding. For this assessment, we will focus on theories dealing with culture and nature and the self.
