Peace Education, Activism, and the Role of the Psychology Professor.
Murphy, Bianca Cody
This paper discusses the experiences of teaching a college course entitled "Psychology in the Nuclear Age" and highlights how research, clinical work, and activism influence the professional role of the teacher. The paper sought to raise a number of questions, including: What is meant by peace education? Should teachers remain objective or do they have an educational as well as moral responsibility to state their personal positions in the classroom? Is teaching a course on peace or nuclear issues a political action? What do students report about how they are affected by the course? How do teachers handle the intense feelings that these topics may evoke in students? and Do teachers have a responsibility to help their students take political action? Contains 5 references. (DB)
