New courses – “Environmental psychology” and “Abnormal and Clinical Psychology: Social and Cultural Contexts”
For the winter semester of 2017 “Applied Social Psychology” introduces two new courses - “Environmental psychology” and “Abnormal and Clinical Psychology: Social and Cultural Contexts”
“Environmental psychology” is a course aimed to teach about the interrelations of people and society with the environment, both natural and human-built. The lecturer is Kirill Ilnitski, an invited researcher in the International Laboratory for Socio-cultural Research, who finished postgraduates programs both in Germany and Italy. The other course, “Abnormal and Clinical Psychology: Social and Cultural Contexts”, touches upon the problem of well-being of migrants and host population in the process of acculturation, and reviews how are social and cultural phenomena connected to clinical problems of a person. The course is taught by Tomas Jurcik, a clinical psychologist with a PhD from University of Concordia in Montreal, Canada.
Both courses are a part of the set of five elective courses, from which each student has to choose no less than three.
