The Power of Labels

Logo for The Power of Labels
This is an exercise that is designed to reinforce the ideas of David Rosenhan's classic study "Being sane in insane places."  It can be used in an abnormal psychology class or in an introductory psychology class to give students first hand experience with the power of labels and the way in which a diagnostic label colors our perceptions and leads us to overlook the person behind the label.
