*About this session: *We welcome a wide range of submissions that explore
the intersection of social psychology and social networks. Social
psychological processes are some of the key mechanisms that explain the
interdependence of individuals and social networks. Many social network
theories draw upon these social psychological processes to explain how
network structures emerge based on individual psychological characteristics
and affiliation preferences, which shape local tie configurations and
ultimately broad structural features of social networks (e.g., structural
balance theories). Social network theories also emphasize how social
network characteristics, in turn, shape individual beliefs and behaviors,
and group outcomes, through mechanisms that include social learning,
normative influence, mimicry, social capital, and social comparison. This
session presents new research that advances knowledge about how individual
social psychological characteristics, such as social intelligence and
social schema, influence network ties and tie dynamics, as well as studies
that examine how networks influence individuals through implicit and
explicit social psychological mechanisms.
