The Most Influential Psychological Experiments in History

January 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$40 – $50

Psychology is essentially the study of mind and behavior. It includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, including feelings and thoughts. This entertaining presentation will highlight some of the top psychological experiments that have shaped our beliefs, thoughts, and feelings. Studies such as Pavlov’s Dog Experiment (which originally had nothing to do with a bell), the Stanford Prison Study, and Milgram’s Obedience Study (conceptually based on the atrocities of World War II) will be explored, to name a few. Various psychological theories will also be highlighted, including Viktor Frankl’s (author “Man’s Search for Meaning”), which helped him survive the Holocaust. Participants will leave with a deeper appreciation of how their own thoughts and actions shape their lives.  Space is limited.
