Games To Explain Aspects of Psychology.
Shapiro, Raquel; Shapiro, Ronald G.
This workshop presents a collection of demonstrations of various psychological concepts. It provides a technique to increase people's interest in the field of psychology and to teach some basic principles about psychology for use on a daily basis. The workshop covers sensation; perception; learning; memory; responding; thinking; interference; measurement; feedback; reinforcement; assumptions; and interpretation. For each activity, you review the psychological basis for the activity; engage in participating in the activity; participate in a discussion relating the activity to real life experiences of the participants; and discuss the way in which participating in the activity will benefit the participants at home or on the job. This program provides a lively, informative workshop with minimal preparation. (ADT)
