In the series Magic for Humans, Justin Willman uses street magic to explore multiple facets of the human experience. In doing so, he re-creates several famous psychological experiments, crosses some boundaries, and teaches us a lot about our field and ourselves. For this Stop! And Think event, Dr. CB has curated a set of clips to explore ethics, psychological research, social activism, and what we can learn about humans from a little bit of magic. The event will last approximately 90 minutes.
The Stop! And Think! Series is a set of documentary/informational films or podcasts meant to challenge us to think carefully about our world and the culture in which we live. Each selection was chosen for its relevance to the field of psychology, but also to our everyday lives. We hope to inspire a sense of greater connection to the world and each other with our discussions of the important, provocative, and contemporary issues that impact us all. Each event will include a broadcast of the recording followed by a discussion with Dr. Lisa Cravens-Brown.
