About the course

This course will provide a description of the socialization process and its impact on individuals in the civilian work force career field as well as in organizations, and of how socialization influences behaviors and becomes a life-changing catalyst for human development. This course will compare the major influences and settings of socialization discussed by sociologist in text and in videos to individual self-concepts. It will explain why a person's acceptance of sociological changes might be difficult when ego defense mechanisms resist change, and provide a self-awareness philosophy, catalyst for change, and strategies for change to aid in understanding why social dynamics influence the role of the civilian employee.
