Christine Mohr and Elise Dan-Glauser will teach basic notions about cognitive and emotional processes. Next, we will consider how cognitive and emotional processes nourish and are nourished by knowledge in the so-called applied psychological domains. Several themes will be developed during the semester, leading the students to link the results of experimental studies to the application of these results in an educational or clinical practice.

At the end of this course the student must be able to:

- Integrate information on cognitive / affective processes
- Synthesize the experimental research read in the literature
- Establish links between research in cognitive / affective psychology and the different proposed themes
- Develop a relevant question about the interaction between cognitive / affective processes and an applied domain
- Propose to a heterogeneous public a societal problematic accompanied by an experimental support seen in the literature to underpin the discussion
- Make a constructive contribution to a discussion point provided by the other students
- Effectively transcribe a summary of presentations
- Propose a critical point of view of the problem and open the discussion on possible research tracks in the field


The interaction between cognition, i.e., the set of mental processes enabling the individual to interact with the environment, as well as emotions in everyday life, will have a profound impact on the individual private and professional life. We will discuss two to four main themes during the semester, all dealing with the implication of cognitive and emotion psychology in practice. We will first address the different approaches in cognitive / affective psychology. Then, we will study the conduct of experimental studies and observe how different problematics can be translated into experimental protocols. The students will propose different themes that will be discussed with the teachers based on passed experimental studies. The resulting discussions will focus on understanding how research results can be translated into concrete actions in psychological practice.
