Content
This study unit is part of the module Psychology of Safety (202000348). During the lectures, elementary psychological theories on responses to physical and social safety issues, and on intervention strategies in the safety domain will be put forward. The lectures will build on the department’s research that is conducted in collaboration with national and international partners such as law enforcement authorities, the Legal Aid Council, the National Crisis Center, various Ministries, and the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority. The theory lectures will be supplemented by lectures of expert guests that illustrate the application of the theories in particular safety contexts. Examples are: interventions in legal conflicts; conflict management and bio fuel; internet, social media and (criminal) behaviour; risk psychology and persuasive technology. Two exam training sessions will be organized to familiarize the students with the type of questions on the exams.
The study material of this “Theory” study unit consists mainly of a selection of scientific articles. The references to this required readings will be provided on Canvas.
