Abstract:

This 7-DVD set highlights developments in the field of psychology, offering an overview of classic and current theories of human behavior. Leading researchers, practitioners, and theorists probe the mysteries of the mind and body. This introductory course in psychology features demonstrations, classic experiments and simulations, current research, documentary footage, and computer animation. Sex and Gender (program 17) explores the distinction between sex and gender, and the ways gender stereotypes channel behavior in animals as well as in humans. It also examines some of the psychological effects of societal gender roles, from birth to adulthood. Maturing and Aging (program 18) looks at the human life cycle in spans of 20-25 years, and what happens physically and mentally as we age. Popular misconceptions about the elderly are examined, often in contrast to the reality of growing old. Researchers, who are developing mental exercises to improve mental efficiency, explain senile dementia and other effects of aging. The Power of the Situation (program 19) explores psychologists' attempts to understand human behavior within its broader social context. It also examines how beliefs and behavior can be influenced and manipulated by other people and subtle situational forces. Constructing Social Reality (program 20) looks at the process and elements of interpreting reality. Viewers will explore the power of cognitive control, the Pygmalion effect, the development of prejudice, and how expectations affect behaviors like performance and compliance.
