Meaningful career implications
Social Psychology as a course has great influence on my career as a prospective Military Family Life Consultant. I have been married to a naval officer for the past twenty-three years and this has further influenced my intention to help the family of military officers as I understand how these people likely feel as I have been there before. Social Psychology would help me achieve this aim as I would be able to use the concept of the course to understand the emotions and apprehension felt by the family of military men. It is therefore pertinent to explain the rudiments of Social Psychology as this would help to show the reasons the course would help me in being a consultant to the family of military officers. Social Psychology deals with the extent at which the lives of individuals are influenced or affected by the social group they belong to (Morris & Maisto, 2005). Hence, I would use Social Psychology to understand the reason that the lives of the Military Family are influenced by the circumstances that surrounds them.
