But there is another side of psychology. This is the world of advertising manipulation, techniques of war propaganda and psychiatric attempts to brainwash people in hospitals.

Take a walk with me on the wild, “dark side” of psychology. To register and pay, call 360.586.6181. General Public/Member: $68/$62
