Resocialising Psychology 3401-3R21PSR
Social Rehabilitation Psychology is looking for the best answers to explain the causes of maladjusted behavior, and then design an adequate and effective assistance, which is forecasting the anticipated effects of the changes. It uses both the psychology as the science of the mechanisms of human behavior and social rehabilitation as a science of helping maladjusted people, who break legal standards.On the one hand, this process requires an understanding and the best explanation of the reason for maladjusted behavior, and then developing strategies to change it.
In Social Rehabilitation Psychology we have the combination of both, the psychology - that describes, explains, provides human behavior and designs trends and social rehabilitation - that combines pedagogical and psychological impacts which are focused on changing human maladjusted, criminal and deviant behaviors (Ostrowska 2008, 13).
Type of course
The learning outcome should be the understanding of the mechanism of social maladjustment, the ability to make a social rehabilitation diagnosis, and then designing a process of motivation and behavior change, which can stop the destructive development and replace in with the positive processes. An important result of studying the rehabilitation psychology should also be the ability of predicting the effects of rehabilitation interactions.
Assessment is based on continuous work and commitment of participants (classes), colloquia after partial batch of material, which are related to the theoretical basis. Summary colloquia can be a definitive assessment of the final grade without taking the final exam.
