Chair of Social Psychology

The Chair of Social Psychology, headed by Prof. Dagmar Stahlberg, and the Chair of Microsociology and Social Psychology, headed by Prof. Herbert Bless, represent social psychology in its entire breadth: The focus is on human thinking, experience and behavior in social situations. In addition to basic scientific knowledge, the Chair of Social Psychology is also interested in application-oriented social psychological research, such as legal psychology (credibility of testimonies), the changeability of stereotypes (e. g. in relation to women and leadership), or research on health and well-being (e. g. positive psychology). Some of these topics can be found in greater depth in the respective research areas of the members of our team (research).
