Stereotyping, Prejudice & Discrimination

From observations in social psychology, stereotyping is described as an oversimplified generalised belief about a group, and the people we subconsciously ascribe to it.  Often misunderstood as one thing, stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination are three different mind behaviours, but why do some people classify and judge others?

In this highly illuminating module, included as part of a series of lessons on the Introduction to Psychology course, a full spotlight is focused, not only on observable human behaviours, but uniquely, on the unconscious biases that motivate them. Beginning with clear definitions and descriptions of the three separate mind behaviours, stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination, you will learn about research in psychology that explores the age that stereotyping begins and why people do it?  With discussion on highly influential studies in social psychology, including Tajfel’s Social Identity Theory and Sherif’s ‘Robber’s Cave’ experiment, you will discover the exact thought processes that cause discrimination, competition and in-group/out-group behaviour.  You will also learn about the strategies for reducing discrimination, and uncover a ground-breaking theory that underpins the real root causes of discrimination and racism, developed by the psychoanalyst presenting this module. 

For anyone who really wants to understand why people judge, exclude, hate and even harm those who they perceive as belonging to another group.  By taking this module you will develop a much greater awareness of unconscious psychological processes, mind biases and group dynamics, and how to overcome them.  The information presented can be applied to improve interactions with others, to develop more harmonious relationships, and a deeper understanding of human behaviour, for your personal and professional progression.
