Practical psychology with prof. Schippers.
An educational series of short conversations about what you always wanted to know with respect to psychological issues such as behavioral manipulation. You will learn how you can recognize it in daily life, and receive tips and tricks on how to deal with it.
Agnotology -- culturally induced ignorance or doubt, particularly the publication of inaccurate or misleading scientific data--, is something of all times, but it seems especially an issue in current times. While many instances claim to “follow the science”, it seems science is not settled on this point.
This video is about what agnotology is, how you could recognize it and what you can do about it yourself. What may help you assess information? What is (mis)information, but information that we can filter for ourselves?
People have trouble weighing the information from science due to agnotology (see for instance Frontiers | For the Greater Good? The Devastating Ripple Effects of the Covid-19 Crisis (frontiersin.org) and Full article: Covid-19: agnotology, inequality, and leadership (tandfonline.com)
According to Wikipedia (Agnotology - Wikipedia):
“Active causes of culturally-induced ignorance can include the influence of the media, corporations, and governmental agencies, through secrecy and suppression of information, document destruction, and selective memory”.
If people know how to best select information, we can counteract the problem of the politicized debate that divides science.

Gaslighting uitgelegd. Hoe kan je het herkennen in je relatie, op het werk en in de maatschappij? Wat kun je er aan doen? Bij gaslighting verdraait iemand de waarheid om zo een ander steeds meer aan zichzelf te laten twijfelen. Dit geeft macht: hoe onzekerder het slachtoffer is, hoe meer hij of zij vertrouwt op en afhankelijk wordt van de gaslighter.

Gas lighting explained. How can you recognize it in your relationship, at work and in society? What can you do about it?
In gaslighting, someone twists the truth in order to make another person doubt themselves more and more. This gives power: the more insecure the victim becomes, the more he or she relies on and becomes dependent on the gaslighter.
