What is social psychology?

Prof. Meltem Narter defined social psychology as "a psychological and social science that investigates the relations of individuals between people and with the social environment, their social experiences and behaviors, the characteristics of group membership or the effects of being in a society on the attitudes, behaviors and beliefs of the individual."

Why is social psychology important?

Noting that social psychology is important because it investigates how individuals realize the state of being social that they have and need as a product of nature, Dr. Narter said the following statements:

"The differences between socialization and becoming a society, the rules of socialization, social norms are important in terms of the effects of all these on forming the behavior of the individual and trying to understand the rules by which people form society and determine norms."

Collaboration between disciplines is important in social psychology
