10 cp
Prerequisites PSYC100 Foundations of Psychology and PSYC101 Applications of Psychology
Teaching Organisation 3 contact hours per week for twelve weeks or equivalent

A key aspect of working with individuals and understanding an individual's behaviour is understanding human behaviour in a group setting. This unit will explore the major concepts of small group processes experientially. In doing so, this unit will extend and apply basic concepts of psychology to develop students' knowledge of the underlying dynamics of small group behaviour, group participation and leadership. This unit explores how an individual's behaviour is influenced by small group interaction, which is a vital aspect of 'being' in the social context. The aim of this unit is to allow students to experience and reflect upon small group processes and develop skills in small group leadership.
