Fall Lecture Series takes a look at applied psychology
A new faculty member in the Department of Psychology has taken the reins in planning this year’s Psychology Fall Lecture Series. Adrian Janit, assistant professor of psychology, has lined up a series of programs focused on applied psychology. Each Friday in October, an informative speaker will give a presentation with a look into practical applications of clinical psychology, according to Professor Janit. The programs will take place at noon in W1002 Science Hall.
On Oct. 5, Professor Janit will begin the series with a lecture titled Treating Phobias with Fiction: How Narrative Interferes with Phobic Beliefs. Avarm H. Mack, assistant professor of clinical psychiatry and director of medical student education at Georgetown School of Medicine will speak on Oct. 12 about Psychosis and Homicide: Psychopathology in New York City Adolescents accused of murder or manslaughter.
On Oct. 19, Matthew Schumacher, adjunct professor of psychology at Aurora University, will present a lecture titled Is suicide preventable? Understanding warning signs & effective treatment. Lorraine Braswell, staff psychologist and military sexual trauma coordinator at the V.A. Medical Center as well as assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the Medical College of Georgia, will speak on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: Sexual Trauma Treatment on Oct. 26.
The series, started more than 25 years ago, is an annual event sponsored by the Department of Psychology and the Katherine Reese Pamplin College of Arts and Sciences. Last year’s focus was on aggression and conflict.
