This course provides historical and advanced theoretical understandings of motivation and behaviour and their degree of relevance in diverse ecological settings. The course is premised on the belief that the most important issue underlying a culturally inclusive society is a willingness of people to be more aware, knowledgeable, and accepting of difference. The course is designed for students who wish to engage in promoting analyses and rigorous critique of socio- psychological theories and to apply strategies that emanate from those theories. Issues relating to Maori and indigenous ways of knowing and practising will be explored.
