Meaningful career implications
Social Psychology shows the extent at which circumstances affect the life of people as it shows how the situation around people influence their lives either positively or negatively (Kagan, 2002). This would also make me understand the consequences of the circumstances that surround military officers and the effect it could likely have on their family members (Kassin, Fein, & Markus, 2008).
I would use Social Psychology as a basis to understand the reasons that the family of military men is emotionally attached to each other. Social Psychology would help me understand the way these people feel and I would be able to advise them on the steps to take to fight their emotions and their apprehensions.
Social psychology would help me understand the way the Military Family feel, think and behave and how their lives are influenced by the members of their family in the military. Hence, Social Psychology would help my career as a Military Family Life consultant as it is just like fitting a round peg in a round hole.
