Applied Social Psychology is a collection of readings from the four-volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology that examine the applications of social psychological theory and research in various domains of personal, institutional, and societal well-being. The readings have been selected to illustrate how social psychological analyses of individual, interpersonal, and group level processes have contributed to important areas of applied psychology in roles that are both descriptive and prescriptive. The book is organized into three sections: Part I reviews the role of social psychological factors in physical and mental health; Part II examines the role of social psychology in social institutions such as law, politics, and social policy; and Part III considers the interface between social psychological processes and social institutions in the world of business and commerce.

"The volume fills an important gap that exists in social-psychological research in India. The contributors present different perspectives. However, the unitary theme of social relevance and interdisciplinary perspective is highlighted. The contributors have provided some suggestions, but they have also indicated the anomalies in our social system. This adds to the merit of the book from a broader perspective. --Indian Psychological Abstracts and Reviews Providing a lively introduction to the field, Applied Social Psychology in India, represents the shift from laboratory-oriented research to problem-oriented naturalistic research. It provides a comprehensive analysis of research on deprivation, poverty, competence, population, political behavior, achievement motivation, social tension, and multilingualism.

Originally published in 1990, this title presents work that bridges social psychology and organizations. The primary goal is understanding, but that goal has two opposite sides: understanding organizations by bringing to bear the concepts and methods of social psychology (along with other social sciences), and understanding and developing social psychology by confronting it with the phenomena of actual organizational life. As such the authors break down some traditional stereotypical barriers between the academic world and the business world, between theoretical and applied research, between laboratory and field, and between various academic sub-disciplines. The result is a series of challenging forays into new research domains from which provocative ideas and provocative phenomena emerge.

Many authors have argued that applying social psychology to the solution of real world problems builds better theories. Observers have claimed, for example, that of human behavior applied social psychology reveals more accurate principles because its data are based on people in real-life circumstances (Helmreich, 1975; Saxe & Fine, 1980), provides an opportunity to assess the ecological validity of generalizations derived from laboratory research (Ellsworth, 1977; Leventhal, 1980), and discloses important gaps in existing theories (Fisher, 1982; Mayo & LaFrance, 1980). Undoubtedly, many concrete examples can be mustered in support of these claims. But it also can be argued that applying social psychology to social issues and problems builds better research methods. Special methodological problems arise and new perspectives on old methodological problems emerge when re searchers leave the laboratory and tackle social problems in real-world settings. Along the way, we not only improve existing research techniques but also devel op new research tools, all of which enhance our ability to obtain valid results and thereby to understand and solve socially relevant problems. Indeed, Campbell and Stanley's (1966) seminal work on validity in research design grew out of the application of social science in field settings. In this spirit, the principal aim of this volume is to present examples of methodological advances being made as researchers apply social psychology in real-life settings.
