“”Conformity” is one of the most studied topics in social psychology. Together with Nicole Bittermann (MA psychology; co-host of the seminar series) we discussed topics like development of (dis)obedience, psychology of non-conformism or effects of norm-violation.

As we are located at the Department of Psychiatry, many of our students study psychology in order to practice one day in a clinical setting. Therefore, during this term we approached the question of how “psychiatry” is portrayed or understood in movies. The seminar series was co-hosted by Nicole Bittermann (MA student in psychology) and we discussed differences between pharmacological vss. therapeutical interventions, the construction of “normality” in movies or the understanding of psychiatric diagnoses as dimensional vs. categorical.
