LIVE WEBINAR: Introduction to Political Psychology
What is political psychology and why does it matter? First Person Politics will answer those questions and more in a live webinar hosted by the Manning Centre for Building Democracy on Tuesday, November 25th at 8pm EST. Please join us by registering at the link below.
Here’s a summary of the material we’ll be covering.
Politics is supposed to be rational, but people aren’t. If you want to win power and change the world, your strategies and tactics need to be based on how people actually form opinions, make decisions, and behave. The problem is that far too many strategies for governing, campaigning, and organizing are based on outdated, discredited assumptions about the way people work. Political psychology is about discovering the irrational and usually unconscious factors that motivate and influence people in political settings – and then using that information to make a difference. Join First Person Politics Founder and Senior Analyst David Rosen for a webinar that will help you recognize the central role psychology plays in politics.
This will be the first in a series of four webinars covering topics in political psychology. Future webinars in January and February will focus on the practical applications of the material — including political messaging, influencing people, and political personalities. We’ll announce them when the time comes.
In the meantime, we hope you’ll join us on Tuesday evening for an introduction to political psychology and to this exciting webinar series! Please register at the link above.
