Many psychologists agree that the majority of emotional and behavioral problems are essentially social and interpersonal. As such, psychological difficulties are not generally caused or maintained by individual processes, they are rather manifested throughout the relationship with others. Social psychology explores the interpersonal processes in which are embodied emotional and behavioral problems. This program studies psychological difficulties from social psychological perspectives.
