Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course introduces various topics and issues of scientific and societal relevance in the rich field of wellbeing research. The general aim is to give a thorough overview of the current social psychological theories and research findings related to the area of wellbeing. Accordingly, we will explore core theoretical approaches and research perspectives, methodologies, recent developments as well as controversies and shortcomings in this area, identifying objectives for future research. We will use the lens of good theorizing, constructive criticism and best research practices (as opposed to QRPs).

The primary goal is to train students in their understanding and critical use of basic theories and research paradigms of social psychology that apply to wellbeing issues manifested mainly in social, consumer and health behaviour.

Covered topics --> conceptual and methodological issues, judgmental and regulatory processes & biases, mindfulness, personality, social relations and wellbeing in consumption context.

Competence development of primary focus --> conceptual and critical thinking, use and integration of scientific literature, operalization from theoretical to empirical, writing skills, overview of recent scientific developments.

How --> knowledge/opinion transfer will take place mainly via open discussions, reviews & opinion papers, presentations.
