Bridging the Gap: A Seminar in Psychology and Public Policy Issues.
Heise, George A.
Teaching of Psychology, v19 n4 p228-30 Dec 1992
Describes an upper-level undergraduate psychology course in which students applied psychological research to contemporary social issues. Students presented two reports on a controversial issue: one based on media reports and the other based on their own research. Reports that the experience gave students a better understanding of the strengths and limitations of scientific psychology's contribution to public policy development. (CFR)
